Switching off a God-given right

Dangerous moves afoot in New Jersey. Ammoland reports a proposed requirement for a new firearms ownership ID card is among them:
According to Senate President Stephen Sweeney, the right to purchase a firearm under the new card could be electronically switched off by local police “if they have a suspicion or concern.” Under current law, Second Amendment rights can only be suspended after conviction of a serious crime – not based on mere “suspicion or concern.” The new approach turns the presumption of innocence on its head and violates due process.
