FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP — A home invasion early Monday sent one person to the hospital in what is believed to be a targeted attack.

Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office Spokesman Chris Swendeman said thieves entered the home on Sargent Road around 2:45 a.m. and assaulted two people. One person was released from a hospital after being treated.

Places in NJ where gun owners have sued to carry a legal gun

New Jersey passed its own law in December, trying to ban legal guns from “sensitive places.” 

A federal judge found many of those spots to be legally protected on grounds of armed self-defense, noting in her opinion, “Crowded locations are not sensitive places."

As of June, a federal appeals court granted the state attorney general's request to keep part of the law that bars people from carrying handguns in “sensitive places” in effect.

The decision means handguns cannot be carried in places such as zoos, public parks, public libraries and museums, bars, and health care facilities.

The law bars handguns from being carried in those places as well as schools and child care facilities. The lower court's May injunction did not specify those locations, and the appeals court also didn't remove the prohibition in those places.
