This Campaign ( Cheeseman-Jillard vs NJ ) wants to thank everyone for any help you maybe able to do in advance.  Even the sharing of our page to like-minded people is a plus.  

First, they promised us the Gun Control Law would not affect the “fit elements of society.” [Burton at 93&105 (1968)]

They told us the law was constitutional because it was “narrowly constructed” toward preventing criminal and other unfit elements from possessing firearms while enabling the fit elements of society to use them with minimal burdens and inconveniences.” [Burton at 91 & 105.]

Then they told us:

·        the law didn’t violate the Second Amendment because ‘the "justifiable need" component of the carry permit law accommodates, on a case-by-case basis, those who have a reason—to anticipate a violent attack in a public place warranting lawful defensive use of a handgun.’ [Wheeler at 739 (2013)]

·        New Jersey has decided that it can best determine when the individual benefit outweighs the increased risk to the community through careful case-by-case scrutiny of each application, by the police and a  court. [Drake 3rd Circuit (2013) at 439.]

·        the historical sources cited by Heller … suggest … a limited right … that should be … determined on a case-by-case basis. [Piszczatoski Dist. Court, D. at 827. (2012)]

·        (t)he “justifiable need” requirement serves the same purpose as the employment-based exceptions, but does so on a case-by-case rather than a categorical basis. [Wheeler at 759.]


John and Mark are not challenging the Statute. We believe the Statute was designed that “justifiable need” was synonymous with Heller’s “Lawful Purpose.” See Heller at 2797 (the core lawful purpose (of the Second Amendment) (is) self-defense,)


The simple (and only) argument in Mark and John’s case is that the Siccardi Rule requires 2C:58-4 Permits Applications to specify an “urgent necessity” for self-protection which must be determined on a case-by-case basis,
Heller threw out case-by-case determinations of Second Amendment Rights in 2008.


The very enumeration of the right takes out of the hands of government—even the Third Branch of Government—the power to decide on a case-by-case basis whether the right is really worth insisting upon. A constitutional guarantee subject to future judges' assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all. [Heller at 2821; McDonald at 3050.]


The prayer for relief in Mark and John’s cases is basically, if WE (all of us) qualify for a 2C:58-3 Permit, WE (all of us) qualify for 2C:58-4 Permit to Carry.


If you are tired of being told you do not have need for a 2C:58-4 Permit, please donate to the Case. Every dollar will go to defeating the Siccardi Rule and NJAC 13:54-2.4d-1

Thank you.

As promised. I have decided to move forward to US Supreme Court. As of 6/28/19 i am filed. Docket Number pending.
As of 5/3/2019 N.J. Supreme court denied review of the case. We are fully aware of the speculation and unknown nature of the Supreme courts opinion at this time, we hope to change that. What we wish to achieve through our petition to the court is a concise and accurate picture of New Jerseys fundamental lack of basic understanding of the Second Amendment. With the clear and concise penmanship of David Jensen and historical knowledge of Jay Factor we believe we have accomplished that. We seek relief for all of law abiding residents of N.J. If our case is granted cert we will see it through. If our case bolsters those cases before us then we have also accomplished our goal. We continue to ask for your support. And thank you for your past support.


New Jersey’s “need” standard is an ideal subject for
review by this Court because the standard is firmly
entrenched in New Jersey law and is not realistically
subject to change. Moreover, this Petition was fully
litigated in the courts below, and the Supreme Court of
New Jersey has just declined Petitioner’s petition for
certification. And again, there are no interest groups or
other organizations running this case—just an average
private citizen, who turned to crowdfunding from other
private citizens in this attempt to vindicate his (and
their) constitutional rights.

Read Petition here please.

At this time I would like to thank everyone for their continued donations. Presently we are still pending in NJ Supreme court. We may or may not be granted review. We hope to have more substantial news in the coming months. Thanks to each and every one for donating.

On behalf of all N.J. law abiding citizens we are proud to present an Amicus brief on behalf of Thomas Rogers Vs GURBIR GREWAL, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW JERSEY. We along With CNJFO and others are coming in force to present the United states Supreme court with a supporting brief. We believe our rights have been ignored to long. Special thanks to New jerseys own Jay Factor, and David Jensen ESQ for the hard work they put into writing this brief Please continue to donate and support our cases and others
Thank you.

Limiting the right to bear arms to only those with an
“urgent necessity” for the core purpose of the right is akin to
limiting the right of free speech to only those with an “urgent
necessity for free expression.

Yet, while the “core” of the Second Amendment is personal
protection, it is just this conduct that the Siccardi rule
proscribes. Because only those with an “urgent necessity for
self-protection” can obtain permits, N.J.S.A. § 2C:58-4(c)
(emphasis added), those with an average necessity for self protection cannot. This is antithetical to the concept of
constitutional rights.
NOTE.. We still seek to sever the Siccardi rule AKA Justifiable need standard for everyone in NJ. NO permits have been offered and we do not expect the state to offer now. We have gone way past an olive branch.

The past few weeks we have filed petitions for review and new briefs for both Cheeseman and Jilliard with NJ Supreme court.
I am personally uplifted and rejuvenated with the recent Guidance from our new council. David Jensen and Jay Factor have worked together to formulate a significantly damming argument against the state of NJ.Jay Factors historical and up to date research along with David Jensens knowledge and expert second amendment law experience have produced a argument that has the potential of winning. We have more clarity now since the County has provided a reply.

What we expect.
NJ Supreme court may or may not grant review.
If this is the case we still move forward.

NJ supreme court grants review but still argues against us.
If this is the case we still move forward.

More then likely Mid January we should know where NJ supreme court stands.

Now more then ever we need support. Hopefully i will have significant news in January.
