Residents threatened with jail for leaving homes during pandemic
'Folks need to be jolted'

The governor of New Jersey warned that "folks need to be jolted," so his attorney general is threatening jail for people who leave their homes in violation of the governer's order Monday.

Gurbir Grewal, the state's attorney general, said those who violate the stay-at-home order could be jailed or fined up to $1,000, NewJersey.com reported.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy signed executive orders that ban unapproved social gatherings and close all "non-essential" businesses.

All retail "storefront and/or brick-and-mortar premises" are shuttered, and "all recreational and entertainment businesses must close to the public." People are allowed to leave home only to seek medical care or to get food or gasoline.

Grewal warned that police will monitor for people who have events in their homes and invite too many people.

"Law enforcement officers will have to break that party up, and there will be criminal consequences," Grewal said. "The time for warnings is over. And the time to ensure compliance by using all of the tools available to us is here."

Offenders could face a number of charges, including disorderly conduct.

A disorderly conduct offense is punishable by a prison term of up to six months, a fine of up to $1,000 or both, Grewal’s office has said, according to NewJersey.com.

"Folks need to be jolted," Murphy said. "All residents are to stay inside if you do not need to be out."

Murphy and State Police Supt. Patrick Callahan were sued Monday for essentially suspending the Second Amendment in their state.

The case was filed by the Second Amendment Foundation and the New Jersey Second Amendment Society on behalf of Robert Kashinsky and Legend Firearms, a gun shop in the state.

"Gov. Murphy cannot simply suspend the Second Amendment, and neither can Supt. Callahan," said SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb. "Yet, under this emergency order, that's exactly what they're doing. The Constitution, and federal law, don't allow that. New Jersey may have been the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights, but they're the last state to recognize it."

The case developed when Kashinsky sought to purchase a firearm for personal protection during the current Chinese coronavirus crisis.

However, Murphy issued Executive Order 107 on March 21 that ordered all non-essential retail businesses closed to the public. The order does not include licensed firearms dealers on its list of "essential" businesses that may continue operating during the crisis.

That means the Second Amendment was violated, the case contends.

"In order for New Jersey residents to purchase firearms," explained Gottlieb, "they must go through a licensed firearms retailer and pass a background check. However, Murphy's order was subsequently followed by a notice posted on the state police website that the agency is no longer conducting background checks."

The action, in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, seeks a restraining order that the governor's order cannot be enforced "to the extent it operates to flatly prohibit the purchase and sale of firearms and ammunition."

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
― Nikola Tesla

Our liberal idiot---uh, governor, evidently read New Jersey's rules and pretty much followed them to the letter yesterday afternoon. New Mexico already has the highest poverty rate in the nation and it's going to soar because of this. Many businesses in the state literally hang on by a tooth and a nail and don't have a chance of surviving this mess. She made the statement that economic relief would be provided. I don't know where the money will come from as she and her liberal minions just spent literally every dime the state had in the just concluded congressional session. The state can't borrow money to operate on either as the constitution forbids that.

"Forbid"? To a Politician, that's a verb with absolutely no meaning. Common sense tells you and me that "forbid" is an absolute. Politicians just make up the definitions as they go along.

Forbidden to leave your own house? Forbidden to go to a friend, or relatives house.
Sounds like New Jersians need to start exercising their gun rights, AND right to travel.
I think this quarantine sh!t is getting outta hand.

While I agree with you, land_owner, it has worked since 1912 when we became a state.


At the time of her announcement yesterday the state had 83, count 'em, 83 confirmed cases of corono, Chinese, call me a racist, I don't care, virus and 9 people had been hospitalized. She pointed this out multiple times but what she didn't tell us was that one case was hospitalized in Texas and five of those hospitalized have already returned home and no one has died. Got to make it look as bad as you can. This in a population of 2.1 million people. What is the percentage rate? My math skills have gone into hibernation for numbers like that. She even went so far as to say if you see your neighbor doing something that violates her guidelines to call and report them.


The most recent thing I can find for common flu in the state is from 12/05/2019 and 21 people had already died from it but there was nothing special made about the situation at all, just the usual warnings of how to protect yourself and that was it. No wailing, gnashing of teeth, or mention of shutting down the state at all. Now we are hiding behind walls when we aren't out buying up every single thing found in the grocery stores over 83 sick and no dead people.
