New Jersey Man
Serving 7 Years For Guns
He Owned Legally

Everything Brian Aitken was or had worked for was wiped away one winter afternoon...
In between jobs, his well-oiled life was running ragged, and on Jan. 2, 2009, when his ex canceled his visit with their son, he became distraught, muttered something to his mother, and left his parents' home in Mount Laurel, N.J.
"He said something that scared her, things that a guy will only say to his mom, like . . . 'Life's not worth living anymore,' " said Larry Aitken, Brian's father.
Sue Aitken, a trained social worker, decided to play it safe and called police, but she hung up before the 9-1-1 dispatcher could answer. Police traced the call and showed up anyway...
When Mount Laurel police arrived at the Aitkens' home on Jan. 2, 2009, they called Brian - who was driving to Hoboken - and asked him to return to his parents' home because they were worried. When he arrived, the cops checked his Honda Civic and, inside the trunk, in a box stuffed into a duffel bag with clothes, they found two handguns, both locked and unloaded as New Jersey law requires.
Yet they prosecuted him anyway. Forget the U.S. Consitution. Forget any sane response to the fact that Brian was no threat to society. SEVEN YEARS!!!!! Seven years in a prison with murderers, rapists, gang bangers, drug dealers, thieves.
That is what this law abiding citizen of our nation is spending in jail. The same amount of time that limousine liberal judges usually sentence repeat offenders for raping or stealing. Actually it is the same amount of time that a few MURDERERS are given in our nation by these oh so sympathetic defenders of rehabilitation and their practice of coddling criminals.
However there is no sympathy for Brian. HE OWNS A GUN!!!!
