The Pennsylvania resident and lawful gun owner of one week fell prey to New Jersey's strict gun laws and was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm in the state.

Assemblyman Ron Dancer has introduced "Shaneen's Law," legislation that would give judges the option of not sending citizens like Shaneen Allen to prison.
