New Jersey's gun laws have been described as a "patchwork" which is unclear and highly restrictive

(Dec. 15, 2010) — Brian Aitken was a father, entrepreneur, and by all accounts, a responsible gun owner who was sentenced by a jury to seven years in a New Jersey state prison, reportedly under pressure from the judge who presided over the case.

Aitken is appealing his sentence on the grounds that he was legally transporting his guns from his parents’ house to a new residence, which could meet the New Jersey exemption of “traveling between residences.”

Brian’s story can be read here.  If enough people call the governor to ask for clemency, it is reported that Brian could be home for Christmas.

A press release from Brian’s media representative reads as follows:

Last week Governor Christie publicly stated that he would decide whether or not to grant Brian Aitken a Pardon by Christmas…..his comments have left thousands of Brian’s supporters optimistic that this injustice will be corrected. We are holding a Call to Action Day on Wednesday of this week. We would really appreciate if you would let your readers, viewers and listeners know, and send a message to your group members and Facebook fans alerting them of the following:

CALL TO ACTION: On Wednesday, December 15, 2010, please pick up your phone and call Governor Christie at 609-292-6000. Wish him a Merry Christmas and ask him to please Free Brian Aitken!!!

There is a link to the full press release with details here:http://www.pitchengine.com/freebrianaitken/chris-christies-christmas-clemency/109484/

And here is the Facebook Event Invitation: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=183214821690439

We would be very happy to show our support and send an update to the 14,000+ Free Brian Aitken Facebook followers about your help and involvement in Freeing Brian Aitken.

Thank you! Feel free to call (845-649-8719) or e-mail anytime to discuss details. We really appreciate it…with your help hopefully we can get enough supporters involved for Brian to be home for the holidays.

Editor’s Note: Even though this story has been released relatively late in the day, please continue your calls to Governor Christie throughout this week and next if a decision has not been rendered.  This writer contacted his office this afternoon and was greeted courteously.

  1. A “pardon” connotes that Brian Aitken did something wrong. He didn’t:

    “…The Right of the People to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed”-The Second Amendment,USConst.
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Yes, release from jail and the conviction expunged for its unconstitutionality is more accurate. That is why when I called LTC Manning, I did not ask for clemency, but rather, the immediate release from Ft. Leavenworth of LTC Lakin on the grounds that the court-martial held to send him there was not authorized due to the lack of a legitimate commander-in-chief.
