New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has pardoned the aspiring police officer who was charged with a felony for carrying his legally owned gun.

Fox News Insider previously reported:

Steffon Josey-Davis was cleaning his gun back in 2013 when his 6-year-old sister walked in. He didn’t want her around the gun, so he said he put the firearm in his glove compartment and forgot about it.

Hours later, Josey-Davis was pulled over, and he told police that he had a gun in his glove compartment. Police took the gun and told him to pick it up the next day.

When he showed up for his gun, he was cuffed and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.

Josey-Davis, who had been working as an armed security guard, legally purchased the gun, but did not yet have the permit to carry it.

Josey-Davis found out yesterday morning that Christie has issued him a full pardon.

“I feel great,” he said, explaining how thankful he feels for all of the support he has received from Fox News and gun rights groups.

Josey-Davis said he still plans to be a police officer, and he thanked Christie for issuing the pardon.

“If he runs for president, he has my vote,” Josey-Davis said.
