New Jersey: 7,000 Fans Supporting Clemency

Brian Aitken was arrested in 2009 when the police found two locked and unloaded handguns in the trunk of his car. He was given a whopping seven-year prison sentence!  Now the Daily Caller reports:
... protesters across the state are organizing a push for an appeal for the court’s ruling. A “Free Brian Aitken” Facebook page has almost 7,000 fans, the website was built and a rally will be held Dec. 12, in Towns River, N.J. Aitken’s family is asking Chris Christie to grant clemency — gun control just might be the next test conservatives throw at the New Jersey governor. A pardon from Christie is far from assured, even if he does have fairly established, conservative credentials.
Christie has equivocated on the State's laws saying he supports "common sense laws that will allow people to protect themselves" (Who doesn't?), but he is also "very concerned about the safety of our police officers on the streets" and wants to "make sure that we don’t have an abundance of guns out there.” See full story here.
