This is exactly the direction this fight needs to go in. Take the fight to them, use their own tactics against them and let them get a taste of how it feels.

Nothing personal to those that live in NJ but I hope he wins and bankrupts the state! It would give the rest of the states a wake up call about their bullshit gun banning agendas.

Damn straight. Let a dirty cop spend time in slam with the guys he helped put in there.

I'm confused about how they got him for illegally transporting a weapon if he was legal? Did they invent a new law for him?

Do you know that a weapons manufacturer can not even do a trade show in NJ without having a NJ local FFL be their sponsor and babysit in order to come into the state and do a show. And one manufacturer who went to one was threatened when he went to the bathroom leaving his table for 5 min. and having the guy from the company in the next booth watch his booth while he was at the restroom. That is why when I was National LE/Govt. Director of Sales and Training for a well known AR Company. We were scheduled to do an LE Show in NJ. But after finding the BS one must go through I told the state and the people involved with the rules for the show to go F themselves and we would not come to NJ! And we never did do any shows there! Obviously as we know it is one of several of the most politically corrupt states in the nation. Good luck to the gentleman and his attorney. I hope it sets a new precedence regarding their stupid anti second amendment laws and they take NJ for a ride!

Good! Stay out of NJ! Let those ignernt fools do without the revenue and spend from visiting conferences! The less business gun owners and mfgs - and anyone relating to guns - does in 2A-unfriendly states the better.

Always amazed me that ANY gun mfg would continue to stay in the rustbelt NE with their liberal anti-2A positions. I can kick myself for ever buying a Henry that was made in Brooklyn at the time. F' NJ and NY.

No. they refused to acknowledge existing NJ and Federal laws. The trial judge denied the jury access to the Federal FOPA exemptions for permissable transport of a gun despite multiple requests for clarification of the charges.

States already bankrupt but I hope he wins as well. I work in DE and the wife works in PA so I see to it that NJ does not get one dime of income taxes from me...they get enough f'n property taxes....

So much for a "fair trial". We gun owners should be rioting in the streets when something like that happens.

Brian Aitken to file suit against New Jersey officials for civil rights violations
By Chris Moody - The Daily Caller | Published: 12:34 AM 03/09/2011

Brian Aitken, the New Jersey man sentenced to seven years in prison last year for possessing legally owned firearms that were unloaded and locked in the trunk of his car, is filing a civil rights suit against the state prosecutors who put him behind bars and the police officers who searched his car without consent, his attorney told The Daily Caller.

Aitken, 27, was convicted of illegally transporting a weapon in August 2010, but was released after four months spent in prison when New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie commuted his sentence to “time served.” (For the full story, read TheDC’s interview with Aitken.)

His attorney, Michael Orozco, sent letters to the Mount Laurel Police Department and the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office Monday to notify them that they would be sued for their behavior in the case, which Orozco claims violated Aitken’s civil rights. The parties have six months to respond.

Orozco is filing suit on Aitken’s behalf under Section 1983 of the federal code, which allows citizens to sue state officials who they believe have violated their rights under federal law. He is claiming damages for the two years he spent battling the New Jersey justice system, his time spent in prison, and for the loss of his three-year-old son, who he has been restricted from seeing for more than two years.

“I don’t know how I get the two years back,” Aitken told TheDC last month. “All the money, all the time that’s been spent. I lost custody of my son over this. How does he ever get his father back? He doesn’t. You don’t get any of these things back.”

Aitken currently lives in Atlanta, where he works as a libertarian activist and new media strategist for the Foundation for Economic Education, a free-market think tank.
He's gonna be rich, there ante enough money in the world to pay him for the injustice done to this man

It would appear to me that NJ just makes up their laws as they go along screwing citizens and violating their constutional rights, bill of rights, and all existing federal statues reguarding firearms.
