The Garden State Weeds Gun Control Idiocy

In a victory for delayed common sense
New Jersey drops prosecution of a firearm offense
The Second Amendment in the Garden State when it comes to pistols barely exists
So the law abiding citizens are stripped of their means to attacks on their safety resist
The felons never believe they will be caught
But the unarmed New Jersey citizen in a crime could very well be shot
New Jersey had recently become a laughing stock
Arresting a retired teacher for possession of a 255 year old Queen Ann flintlock
A one shot pistol, less a firearm and more a piece of art
Why the police from common sense had to depart
The law against pistols does not exempt collector antiques
So the retired Van Gilder was without a paddle up the proverbial creek
May be impossible in this Blue leaning state to this law amend
So another law abiding collector to jail it does not send
Before this day while New Jersey was groping in the idiocy fog
This poet was pleased to have been on the right side of reason with his prior blog
