Finally Some Good News Out Of New Jersey

Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) granted a "full and free pardon" to Steffon Josey-Davis. Mr. Davis was the armored car guard and would-be policeman who got caught up in the Byzantine labyrinth of New Jersey's gun laws.
The North Brunwsick armored car driver who took a plea for illegally transporting his legally owned handgun in his car has received a pardon from Gov. Chris Christie, the governor's office announced Monday.

The clemency granted by Christie to Steffon Josey-Davis, 24, gives him a "full and free" pardon for all criminal charges stemming from his September 2013 arrest.
We interviewed Steffon on the Polite Society Podcast back in February. You can hear our interview with him here. I am very happy for Steffon and hope he can get his law enforcement career back on track. He was a nice, sincere young man and he deserved this pardon.

You can see the pardon below:

Given the recent tragedy where Carol Bowne died at the hands of her ex-boyfriend while waiting for a pistol purchase permit, this is good news. My fellow podcaster Rob Morse has more on the murder of Ms. Bowne here.
