"Nappen believes, rather, that his client is a victim of the state's complex licensing processing. He argues that a restriction on Twyne's permit would render it effectively unusable, putting his client in a Catch-22 scenario: Able to carry at work, but unable to transport it home.
"How do you give him a license to do this and then don't allow him to go to work and then come back from work?" Nappen said. "The limitation that the state is trying to place on his license makes the license utterly useless this case."
Nappen said he feels that the gun laws in New Jersey may, in some respects, be designed to evade governmental accountability. He pointed out how gun permit applications are treated as confidential, preventing outside groups from scrutinizing the process. He believes that this is not, in fact, done to ensure confidentiality but to evade fairness."
