LD13 Legislators to Murphy: Guns, Cars and Computers are essential

Assembly Members Gerry Scharfenberger, Serena DiMaso and Senator Declan O’Scanlon

District 13 legislators, Senator Declan O’Scanlon and Assembly Members Serena DiMaso and Gerry Scharfenberger want Governor Murphy to amend the types of businesses allowed to operate during the COVID-19 shutdown to include gun dealers, car dealers and computer repair shops.

The legislators representing northeastern Monmouth County issued the following statement this afternoon:

“We understand that this is a unique time not only in our State’s history, but our nation’s as a whole. With that comes various challenges to safeguard the public’s health. However, we should ensure that any actions taken to guarantee the safety of our residents also include upholding a citizen’s Constitutional right to protect themselves through the lawful purchasing of firearms from a licensed provider. Preserving constitutional rights, even in unprecedented situations, should be seen as a sacred obligation of government.

“These are trying times and if a lawful citizen seeks to invoke their Second Amendment Right, they should have the ability to do so. In instances of national security, people buy gold and buy guns. If a citizen wants to do so, as long as they are practicing social distancing and proper hand-washing, that shouldn’t be an issue.

“Further, we need to consider other businesses that should be deemed essential including car dealerships, which have a limited social interaction aspect, so that residents can still purchase a vehicle especially if they have an expiring lease or were dependent on now-limited public transportation options. Also, computer and technical service stores are necessary functions given the critical role they provide in maintaining the ability for medical communities, schools, and the workforce at large to operate uninhibited from the safety of their homes. If we are requiring people to telecommute and work from home–they need to be able to have their technology repaired in order to do so.”

    Thanks to the LD13 Legislators for standing for what is right against the communist dictator Phil Murphy.

    this many RINOS together since Six Flags closed the drive thru animal habitat.

    @ haven’t seen

    RINOs don’t fight for second amendment rights. Using your animal analogy, that makes you a horse’s ass.

    @Proud Republican

    If you voted to raise as many taxes as O’Scanlon did, and give undocumented aliens money for school–guess what? Your a RINO!

    First of all, it’s you’re, not your. Second of all, I see three people in that picture. Third, he is in the minority in the New Jersey Senate, and probably votes 92 95% the way you would want him to. Singling out the 5 or 10% you disagree with him is why Democrats are running roughshod over this state

    @Proud Republican:

    Sorry for the improper use of “your.” You are correct….shame om me.

    Having said that, we currently live in the highest taxed state in the union.

    Taxes are making it difficult for those on fixed incomes. Matter of fact, it’s difficult for two-income family. Taxes are the number one reason why there is a net outflow of population leaving this state.

    When you have this problem, you don’t side with the tax loving Democrats and vote to raise taxes on gas, online purchases , and shopping bags. And you don’t give away our tax dollars to undocumented people, aka lawbreakers, so they can get a college education.

    Declan’s votes only makes a bad situation in this state worse.

    He needs to be primaried!
