The New Jersey TEA Party Coalition is honored to announce Brian Aitken will be a very special guest speaker for the November 18th meeting at Teaneck American Legion, Teaneck NJ.

The NRA describes Brian Aitken as an Accidental Criminal – a law abiding citizen who was caught in the web of New Jersey’s draconian gun laws
.
In 2010, Brian Aitken was arrested in New Jersey for legal possession of firearms. But legal compliance with state statutes was not enough to protect Brian’s Second Amendment Rights.

A NEW JERSEY JUDGE SENTENCED BRIAN AITKEN TO SEVEN YEARS IN PRISON FOR POSSESSING GUNS HE LEGALLY OWNED.

AFTER FOUR MONTHS BEHIND BARS, GOVERNOR CHRISTIE DEMANDED HIS RELEASE.

BUT NOT BEFORE THE STATE TOOK HIS SON AND HIS FREEDOM.

BRIAN WILL TELL YOU HIS HARROWING STORY on November 18, at 7PM at the American Legion Post, 650 American Legion Dr., Teaneck, NJ 07666 Phone:(201) 836-3471

You can purchase Brian’s memoir, The Blue Tent Sky: How the Left's War on Guns Cost Me My Son and My Freedom, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, as well as indie bookstores across the country.

Conservative Book of the Month: Brian Aitken Names Names in New Memoir:

The book release comes on the heels of intense scrutiny of New Jersey's treatment of well-meaning gun owners, like Shaneen Allen, who was viciously persecuted by the Atlantic County District Attorney acting under a 2008 Graves Act directive to prosecute gun owners "vigorously," "strictly," and "uniformly".

Aitken wasn't as lucky as Shaneen Allen, who was recently offered Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) that will result in her facing no jail time and no felony record after a one-year probationary period. Before Aitken even went to trial, a family court judge revoked his parenting time from his infant son just for being indicted with a non-violent charge. He was ultimately sentenced to seven years in prison after the judge refused the jury to consider the laws that would have exonerated him.

On December 20, 2010--after spending four months behind bars--Governor Chris Christie issued Executive Clemency to Aitken, and demanded his immediate release from prison.

The Blue Tent Sky is the true story of the events that led to Brian's arrest and the years that followed. Aitken refused to change the names of the officers, prosecutor, and judges involved in his case, writing, "far too often those in power are immune from repercussions or accountability. Their transgressions are not only permitted, but are almost universally ignored, because they are members of the political ruling class and are, by default, above the law... since no one else will hold certain people accountable for their actions, I have held them accountable within these pages."

Be sure to mark November 18 @ 7PM on your calendar. Bring a friend. You do not want to miss hearing Brian’s compelling story.

"Shaneen's Law"
Single mom from PA Shaneen Allen facing jail time in NJ

A3608 Provides courts with sentencing discretion for certain convictions concerning possession of a firearm.

A young Philadelphia mother had a permit to carry a handgun in PA She was stopped for a crossing lane motor vehicle violation. She voluntarily told the NJ State Trooper that she had a right to carry a handgun permit in Pennsylvania. She will now go to a New Jersey prison. The judge can't dismiss the case even if he wanted to, because the law is the law. A NJ Republican Assemblyman drafted a new legislative bill called "Shaneen's Law" to restore justice to New Jersey court system.

Under New Jersey's mandatory sentencing law, the judge has no authority to suspend sentence. The lady's best hope is for the prosecutor to drop the case, which he has discretionary power to do.

We consider the legislators listed below, sponsors and co-sponors of this bill, to be men and women who are displaying common sense and compassion in trying to prevent this single mother from doing jail time because the law she broke had the words "mandatory sentencing" rather than allowing for judicial discretion.
