New Jersey Gov Keeps Armed Guards While Banning Gun/Ammo Purchases

Alejandro Roubian wrote an article for Ammoland about the hypocrisy he’s witnessed from he New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy. Not too long ago, the governor decided to ban the purchase of firearms and ammunition across the state.

It seems the Governor Murhpy feels it’s not necessary for the citizens of New Jersey to be able to buy guns or even ammunition during this crisis. However, he doesn’t apply that same principle to himself.

Roubian had recently attended multiple press conferences in which he questioned Gov. Murphy about his ban. Since then, his office has rejected Roubian’s press credentials.

When Roubian went to a press conference on Sunday he was greeted with locked doors and armed guards. He then stated that armed state police officers tried to intimidate him.

Unlike previous days, the doors were locked. When he knocked on the door, he was intercepted by armed guards and a representative from Governor Murphy’s office. Additional armed state police officers surrounded him in a show of force and intimidation.

Americans are growing tired of the 'elite' politicians making laws or rules for the citizens and then exempting themselves from those very laws and rules. Roubian posted a video of this encounter, here.

This doesn't seem like the actions of a free country. Instead it resembles the actions of a statist government.

    1. Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!
      The Constitution defines, “Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens. Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe. Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don’t get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU. IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!

    2. Did you vote against this clown, assuming you live in N.J. As has been noted, people usually get the sort of government they didn’t vote against, which appliers to the state legislature and the congress also.

  1. When voters in New Jersey go to the polls in November they should remember what this governor is doing to your rights!!!Gun Ownership in the United States
    Our nation is free because its citizens are able to own guns. US Hitler came into power in Germany in 1936 and since Germans had been required early to register their guns it was easy to know where guns were located thus making confiscation easy. In 1963 in a meeting between retired officers of the US and Japan when asked why they didn’t invade the mainland, the reply was due to our private gun ownership there would have been a “gun behind each blade of grass.”
    Studies indicate that firearms are used more than 2 million times a year for personal protection, and the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances. Shooting usually can be justified only where crime constitutes an immediate, imminent threat to life, limb or in some cases, property.
    In the majority of the mass shootings that have taken place this year the mental condition of the perpetrator was in question and even confinement orders had been ordered but not carried out. Innocent people lost their lives due to this dereliction of duty. The media seems to glorify these actions and ignore the cases in the preceding paragraph.
    I hope in the remainder of my life, I don’t see the invasion of our great country where we private citizens are required to come to its defense.

  2. It comes down to the fact that Phil Murphy’s behind is more valuable than the behinds of any other New Jersey citizen, so he can have armed guards while the rest can pick up rocks and other objects for protection!

  3. there is definitely something wrong whwen the police costumes look more threatening than the hells angels.They look exacly like the gestapo of you know who in old germany.

  4. Phil, you’re just another Hypocritical Dem politician (sorry for the redundancies). Listen closely; WE will give up our 2A rights the day you idiot Dems 1) abide by same laws as US, 2) are investigated, indicted, prosecuted & imprisoned for your crimes equally to US mere mortal citizens, 3) you unarm your security militias guarding you because they can use the same ‘sticks & stones’ you recommend for US, 4) you start enforcing the very laws YOU wrote relative to illegals, sanctuary states/cities and enforcement of border security for US. You ready to commit? WE thought not. Off to buy another weapon for the car…. Likely I’ll need it the way things are going.

  5. If this is what the “good” people of NJ elect to lead them, there aren’t many of them or they aren’t very good. Maybe this fall they will vote for Befuddled Joe, he’ll try to take everyones guns,.

    GO TRUMP 2020-2024-2028——————————-

  6. Banning sales of guns and ammunition while releasing felons and sexual predators makes no sense at all. Glad to see the governor not giving up his protection.

  7. Another puppet democrat trying to emulate Hitler, he can be protected by his SS Gestapo while he tries to destroy the US 2nd Amendment.

  8. I wonder what he is doing now that guns and gun stores have been declared an essential business along with the sale of ammunition and supplies. Kind of screws him up doesn’t it.

  9. Do as I say (order) not as I do (whatever the hell I want)..Always has been my argument everytime Bloomberg opens his big mouth about guns!


  11. Well folks, It is the PEOPLES REPUBLIK OF NEW JERSEY. When a majority of the citizens of a state or country are so brain dead that they elect & CONTINUALLY re-elect freedom hating demoncRATS & other various political scum it’s time to move & it may be past time to start stockpiling ammo. If you decide to move to a free state please leave any liberal baggage you have accumulated over the years behind. We don’t need it. GO TRUMP 2020-2024-2028———————————
