  • NJ man loses 76 guns over domestic dispute he wasn’t a part of

    Although C.L.H had a clean record and was not a defendant in the domestic violence proceeding, which was later voluntarily dismissed in any event, what authorities found out about his collection led to trouble. On examination by the State Police, five of the guns were considered under New Jersey law to be banned “assault weapons” which led to the forfeiture of those firearms and, since that disqualified him from further gun ownership under state law as argued the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, the other 71 guns as well. A local court agreed and ordered the entire collection remain impounded pending...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's struggles are not only limited to the early primary states, as support among voters in the Garden State has fallen significantly, according to a new poll. In the latest Fairleigh-Dickinson poll, Christie pulls only 9 percent support of voters. This comes as Donald Trump leads in the state with 31 percent backing, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio taking second with 18 percent support, twice that of the governor. Dr. Ben Carson also leads the sitting governor, raking in 11 percent support.

    LINDEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The FBI and local police are investigating after a drone fell out of the sky and crashed into a truck in New Jersey on Wednesday morning. As CBS2’s Christine Sloan reported, of particular concern to authorities is that the incident happened on a road just outside a Phillips 66 refinery in Linden. The driver of the truck apparently got out and had words with the operator of the drone, who took off, investigators said. John Victor Jacobson, head of New Jersey-based Drone Service Systems, said he cannot think of a good reason to fly one of...

Chris Christie, a presidential candidate whose popularity has dropped at home. It means Democrats will control at least 51 of the 80 seats in the lower house of the state Legislature as of January — their biggest majority since 1979.

    State Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D) is working to change New Jersey’s laws to make smart guns available — 13 years after a measure that would require them was put into place. A law written by Weinberg and passed in 2002 would require that New Jersey dealers only offer “smart guns,” which are weapons that activate only when their owners’ fingerprints are detected, within 30 months of such guns coming on the market. The technology exists, but gun dealers throughout the country have resisted offering such guns — for fear of beginning the clock on New Jersey’s law and barring other...

    New Jersey authorities have responded to a request by pro-lifers to investigate a suspicious arrangement between two abortionists. Marie Tasy of New Jersey Right to Life says the organization filed complaints about two notorious abortionists, Steven Brigham and Vikram H. Kaji. Brigham, who has lost or surrendered his medical license in several states, ran into problems in New Jersey where he owns six abortion clinics. Tasy says that's because the Department of Consumer Affairs and the Board of Medical Examiners started proceedings to revoke Brigham's license. "This all came to light when they performed an abortion on a woman and...

    A new phenomenon is sweeping across Sparta as more and more students come forward claiming to have encountered the flightless Dodo bird. Caught somewhere between a pigeon and a dove with its gray feathers and unmistakable yellow scowl, the Dodo bird stood at an intimidating one meter tall back in the 17th century when it became extinct--barely a century after its discovery. The Dodo bird was not known for its impact on this planet while it lived, but, rather, remains a point of contention and activism because of its death. The extinction of this bird has been overwhelmingly attributed to...

The state Supreme Court probed whether the state has a contractual obligation to pay what it agreed to in a 2011 pension overhaul law and tried to get lawyers from both sides to explore whether such a finding would represent an overstepping of the courts' role and put it in the middle of the state budget process every...

Matthew Franck said the law may well be violating the freedom of religion guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution because it singles out religious organizations for disfavored treatment.
