Blind NJ fights to get guns back

MORRISTOWN, N.J. - November 18, 2011

Morris County prosecutors say Steven Hopler is unfit to safely maintain 14 handguns.

The Daily Record of Parsippany reports the 48-year-old's attorney on Thursday told a judge that Hopler is capable to keep the weapons and has complied with conditions set by the court last year. Hopler completed a firearms safety course and underwent an alcohol evaluation.

A court in 1994 allowed Hopler to purchase firearms and shoot them under strict conditions.

The court hearing is scheduled to resume on Dec. 8.
