(PartiallyPolitics.com) Federal Judge Renee Marie Bumb has temporarily blocked New Jersey’s new law that restricted carrying firearms from a number of both public and private property settings.

The new law which was signed in late December determined that firearms should not be allowed in public libraries, museums, establishments that served alcohol, and other entertainment facilities. Under the new law in order for someone to carry a gun within a private property they would also need the owner’s explicit permission.

Bumb, a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, noted that the new law has led to many “considerable constitutional problems” and essentially means that in New Jersey firearms are not allowed.

In her ruling, she noted that this new law essentially took away the Second Amendment rights of the plaintiff who should be allowed to carry a concealed firearm so long as they hold a valid permit. She further added that both the state and the public were not looking to have an unconstitutional law enforced.

While two provisions were struck down, there are still many limitations in place for those who want to get a concealed carry permit.

Alan M. Gottlieb, head of the Second Amendment Foundation, has said that his group along with the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, the Firearms Policy Coalition, and others were trying to get the law overturned by focusing on the parts that they believed would be easier to win.

Gottlieb added that the reason they targeted those specific portions of the law was because it would allow them to have a temporary restraining order in place which would block the law from going into effect for a time.
