Brian Aitken NJ gun charges finally overturned by the state Supreme Court

A man who bought guns legally in Colorado - but was arrested and slapped with a seven-year prison sentence for not having a permit to carry them in New Jersey - had two of the three charges filed against him overturned by the state Supreme Court on Friday.

The court overturned Aitken's convictions of illegally carrying a firearm and carrying a large capacity ammunition magazine, and concluded that the search of Aitken's car stemmed from an officer responding to a call concerning his mental well-being - not because of a suspicion of criminal activity.

However, the court upheld Aitken's conviction for illegally carrying hollow-nosed bullets.

State law allows for hollow-nosed bullets to be stored in people's homes, but they can only be transported by someone traveling directly to an authorized location for hunting, target practice or shooting exhibitions, according to the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety.
