New Jersey: Pardon!

myCentralJersey.com reports Republican Gov. Chris Christie "has pardoned a Philadelphia woman facing gun charges and jail time after a traffic stop in New Jersey in 2013." It notes:
Shaneen Allen was arrested in October 2013 in Hamilton Township after telling a state trooper she had a handgun and a concealed-carry permit. New Jersey did not recognize the Pennsylvania permit, and she was arrested and charged under its strict gun laws. 
The pardon is said to have attracted "quick praise" from the National Rifle Association and Christie says that he is considering changing the state’s gun laws. Interestingly, he also notes that, if the Democratic Legislature will not cooperate in that enterprise,
.... He said he’ll instead do what he is legally allowed to do, such as pardons when he thinks they’re warranted.
