TRENTON – A pro-gun rights group will be on the Statehouse steps Friday for a rally around the Second Amendment.
The New Jersey Second Amendment Society is meeting in Trenton at 10 a.m. to support residents’ right to keep and bear arms.
The list of speakers includes former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan and Sen. Michael Doherty, (R-23), Washington Township.
According to a list from the organization, other speakers include Assemblywoman Alison McHose, (R-24), Franklin; and Assemblymen Michael Patrick Carroll, (R-25), Morris Plains; and Nelson Albano, (D-1), Vineland.
The group lists Gov. Chris Christie as a potential speaker.
Last month, the group president, Frank Fiamingo, said he spoke to Christie and later a scheduler, who he says told him Christie plans to speak at the rally. Christie’s office later disputed that, saying the governor’s office never agreed.
The program still lists him as a potential speaker.
The Democratic National Committee is targeting Gov. Chris Christie as the New Jersey executive begins his term serving as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.Read More >

"It's incredible, it's a dream. I would never have imagined that I would be running for mayor, but to have Ken Gibson say that, I didn't expect it. Having Ken Gibson on my side is the ultimate reference check. It's the ultimate in street credibility. Mr. Gibson said it, when he was running for mayor, people said that they weren't ready, but Mr. Gibson said 'ready or not, here I come.' I think that's apropos for my campaign. Newark is ready for this." Newark Mayoral candidate Ras Baraka- PolitickerNJ.com
