    It was scheduled for as early as yesterday according to news reports and now it's 6:15pm in D.C. today. I don't get CSPAN. Hell, I don't get anything, I am still at "work" :D. Has it been debated at all yet? Anyone following this closely on CSPAN or elsewhere?

    TIA!

    I received the NRA alert and emailed both of my Senators today, 1 Democrat and 1 Republican and encouraged them to support the amendment. I don't know the status at this time.

    And in New Jersey the Bergen Record reported the story as follows in part:

    New Jersey requires applicants to show a “justifiable need” to carry a concealed handgun, and courts have ruled that a desire to protect property or a generalized fear of crime does not meet the standard, Sgt. Dave Hill of the state police said in a telephone interview.

    “Unless you’re an armored car driver or a cop, you have to have documented threats on your life that are actively being investigated by a law enforcement agency, and no other means to protect yourself except a permit to carry,” Hill said.
