NRA-ILA ALERT: New Jersey's Bruen-Buster Bill Is Back For Full Assembly Vote

On Monday, November 21, the full Assembly is expected to vote on A.4769. This legislation started out as a “copy-cat” strategy, mimicking what New York did to lash out at the Supreme Court post-Bruen. The bill arbitrarily and drastically expands the number of places labeled as “sensitive places” where concealed carry is prohibited. Over the last month, the bill has been assigned to multiple committees and amended several times to clean up drafting errors, among other things. Incredibly, this bill is so deeply flawed that all of this time and effort has been spent in vain. Anti-gun Majority Democrats simply deny that the United States Supreme Court affirmed the right to carry. The court spoke resolutely and was unambiguous. Your immediate assistance is needed to help block A.4769 which is unconstitutional and will: Drastically increase the cost of obtaining permits and credentials. Expand the already-rigorous New Jersey training requirements. Use... Read more →

What to Know Before Investing in Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency is a type of digital currency that has special technology that makes it almost impossible to counterfeit. Many types are based on blockchain technology, and a network of computers enforces it. It is attractive to many because no central authority issues it. There are a few things you should know before deciding whether or not it is for you. Ensure You Have Enough Funds Set Aside While cryptocurrency can be an attractive investment, it can also be volatile, so you will want to make sure you are not putting all your money into this investment. Consider limiting the amount you put into crypto and make sure you have an emergency fund set aside so you aren’t tying up all your money by investing it. You may consider ways of reducing your monthly expenses before investing as well. This can free up more funds to put in your investments. One... Read more →


THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:

What is Happening with Disney?

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews Contributor Is there ever a story behind the story when it comes to Disney it all started in 1967. The story also includes other major theme parks in the Orlando, FL area. In 1967 when Disney was buying thousands of acres of land in the Orlando area they made an "agreement" with the state of Florida that they could manage themselves. "Manage" included zoning, planning, utilities, as well as governing themselves. If Disney wanted to build a nuclear power plant in the middle of the Magic Kingdom, they could do it and no one could do anything about it. Again, this is not based on any law; it is based on an agreement. As time went on, the other theme parks got the same agreement. Moving ahead to this week. The state of Florida passed a law to protect children in preschool to grade 3. The... Read more →

NJ News Commons: MURPHY SAYS NURSING HOMES SHOULD PAY PRICE FOR COVID

MURPHY: NURSING HOMES SHOULD PAY PRICE FOR COVID On CBS, Gov. Phil Murphy spoke about concerns over his administration's work to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 in nursing homes. Some blame sits with the facilities who failed to follow the health department's "explicit, black-and-white" instructions, Murphy said. While it's true that the state's policy asked long-term care facilities to not turn away COVID-positive residents, Murphy said the state told the facilities the residents must live in "their own wing, their own building" — and if that wasn't possible, operators were told to "come to us and we'll find another alternative." Still, some facilities "did not take our advice," Murphy said, and "they deserve to pay a price for that."
