SOMERVILLE, N.J. — "A quadriplegic in New Jersey has the right to bear arms even though he can’t hold a gun or pull a trigger.
A judge ruled Tuesday that James Cap is eligible for a firearms ID, which is required to buy a gun.
Manville’s police chief had rejected the 46-year-old’s application last year.
Cap says he was an avid hunter as a teenager before he was paralyzed after breaking his neck in a high school football game 30 years ago.
Cap says he’ll put the gun in a special wheelchair mount and operate it with a special breathing tube so he can hunt again.
The judge ruled Cap can have the permit only if his guns are stored in a safe and qualified people assist him with the weapons."
I'm taking this as a victory. Because it'd be just wrong to look at any glass half full on a Veterans Day. Not gonna do it. So what if New Jersey cops despise the Constitution and its judges believe that the Founding Fathers spent alla that there time fighting King George just so's they could hunt.
Mr. James Cap is sort of a real citizen again. I'm happy for him, and fervently hope that Manville's police chief goes straight to hell.
