A Gun Ruins A Womans Life 

Shaneen Allen was robbed last year on South Street. The fear from the incident led her to buy a handgun. She obtained a license and took classes to learn about her new .380 Bersa Thunder. She said, “I was actually scared to buy the firearm, because I didn't know anything about guns.” Despite all of her precautions, Allen made one mistake- taking the gun into New Jersey. She was in Jersey getting ready for her daughter’s birthday party when she was pulled over by an officer for an “unsafe lane change”. While looking through her bag for her license and registration she said, “"I said, 'I just want to let you know that I have my license to carry and I have my firearm on me’…"He was like, 'What?' He didn't believe what I was saying.” NJ has some of the strictest gun laws and doesn’t recognize permits from any other state. Allen could be facing 3-5 years in prison for unlawful possession of a firearm and due to miscommunication with her public defender, missed a court date and has already spent 46 days behind bars. After sharing her story through the media, Allen has received wide spread financial and support from those who sympathize with her situation. She will appear at an Atlantic County court hearing today.
