A quadriplegic who is physically unable to hold a gun or pull a trigger has filed suit against a town and its police chief, contending a decision to deny him a firearms purchaser ID card amounts to discrimination.

James Cap, a 46-year-old Manville resident who suffered a devastating spinal cord injury during a high school football game three decades ago, argues he can safely handle a gun with assistance.

Not only can he be assisted, but what if he wants to be a collector? You don't have to ever touch or handle a firearm to be a collector. This had better be a slam-dunk case or something is way wrong behind the scenes.

It would be fantastic if this got the 2nd incorporated in NJ and the rest of the Third Circuit.

He shouldn't even need a firearms purchaser ID.

NUKE & PAVE that town over using the legal system.

If you're think'n the ACLU would jump in I'm afraid you are mistaken. When it comes to guns they're the first to produce some lame excuse for staying away.

He should have no problems winning this. Because he cannot use his arms I am sure there are some robotic engineering people who would have no problems rigging him up something.
