    If you live in NJ your a sitting duck or supreme law makers use this line. You have no justifiable need to protect yourself hence you can not carry a gun to defend your self or your family learn to talk duck folks quack quack

    #7 can we PLEASE stop going to LCSW for major crimes??? this isn’t something for a “civilian” to handle. stick to driving around snitching on everyone. but the LCSW is NOT more powerful than the LPD and cannot conduct the same kinda investigation. they are a CIVILIAN watch group.

    Really though.. If anyone could have guns… how many would end up in criminal’s hands from it? More than they have now.. it’s not a black and white situation, there are gray areas that could be just as bad. Alternatively, crime is getting worse. Maybe we could see more police presence in this area… before it turns into another Asbury park.

    Was the LCSW called? People must learn to always call LCSW after calling 911.

    It’s sad how Lakewood had been turning into a town where these incidents occur frequently. Glad I got out a few years ago…

    To all the firearm in every home! i totally agree But! being involved in firearms for many years i can tell you 80% of people who buy a gun, buy it shoot it once and leave it in the closet for the next 10 years. My friends if that is you, your gun is a liability to you it is not a tool that will help you. If you buy a gun and not practice and commit to it by practicing weekly for the the first 6 months and monthly after that you will never be able to use the gun properly under stress. You will shoot the very person you are trying to save. a jackhammer is a great tool at ripping up concrete but without proper training and practice you will take your foot off. I applaud anyone for buying a gun but take the next step and practice with it on a regular basis, be familiar with it be able to take it apart and back together with your eyes closed. I talk from experience from my many friends who have bought guns over the years. buying a gun is not just another toy, well it is a toy but take the responsibility that comes along with it i know its expensive to practice but thats the choice you made, if you cant afford it do yourself a favor and sell the gun and rent one in the range when you feel like shooting

    I am with Jonathan 100%. Buy a gun and KEEP PRACTICING. It’s not just a paper weight without the training, it’s a liability. G-d forbid your kid finds it, because you don’t know how to store it safely. Practice makes perfect.
    Good Shabbos.
