Judge says handicapped Manville man can get gun permit

There is "no reason" James Cap, a quadriplegic who is physically unable to hold a gun or pull a trigger, should be denied a firearms ID card — a requirement for the purchase of any gun in New Jersey, a judge in Somerville said today.
"I hope you enjoy the use of your firearm," Superior Court Judge John Pursel said before signing an order that will allow Cap to get a permit as long as any guns he buys are stored in a safe and only qualified people assist him with the weapons.
When he buys a gun, Cap will be able to shoot with the help of a friend, who can put his firearm in a special wheelchair mount. A mechanical device will allow him to aim and fire with breaths through a tube.
"You aim it right, left or down and take the shot," explained Cap, saying it is a simple and safe device.
Cap, a 46-year-old Manville resident who was paralyzed by an injury suffered during a high school football game three decades ago, is an avid hunter who had been denied the ID card by a local police chief.
It took some 2 1/2 years, thousands of dollars and the calls of gun-rights advocates for the man to get a firearm permit. He even had his attorney, Edward Kopelson, file a lawsuit against Manville and borough police chief, Mark Peltack, who rejected his application in 2008.
