BARNEGAT, NJ: New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District Independent Candidate Martin Weber is vowing to preserve the spirit and legality of the Second Amendment.

“The Second Amendment needs to be defended for the law-abiding citizens”, says Weber. “When you look at many gun owners here in the 3rd District, you see people who are hunters and those who use them for sport and recreation”.

The candidate does recognize the calls by advocates to ensure there are reasonable regulations and background checks. “I firmly believe that if you want to own a gun, you should be trained, certified, and registered”, states Weber as he is calling for creating a program that has individuals complete a one-time certification course in which they learn how to properly handle and maintain their firearm. “You have people out there who buy a gun and injure themselves (sometimes fatally) while trying to clean it”, cites Weber. “There is a role for groups like the NRA (National Rifle Association) and even retired military and law enforcement personnel to properly train gun owners…it is all about safety.”
