    One of those "you ain't gonna believe this" stories.


    Defense fund grows for NJ man busted by cops over antique pistol

    A defense fund is growing today for retired New Jersey teacher Gordon Van Gilder, who is facing a felony weapons charge for having an unloaded, antique flintlock pistol in his car; an arrest that the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms yesterday said “broaches the irrational.’

    NJ is crazy! I love the part where the prosecutor wants a ballistics test run on it...

    I just about fell out of my chair when Nappen told me about that. You just can't make up stuff like that.

    there are retired NYPD and NJSP cops at tricounty.... seen some at PR with their LOUD and Proud little retired badges.... it's amazing that they are the ones with the shock faces when they see normal Joes q public with guns. It saddens me that they are here..... Fascist cops are always Fascist cops even when they move to little old Oregon.

    Yes to this!

    Also...what kind of a cold case does the DA think a ballistics test will solve? Abraham Lincoln's murder? Who really fired first during the "shot heard around the world"? Blackbeard's hired hitman?
