You always held him in a certain high esteem. He was a judge's judge."Another case where Stanton presided that also had a long-lasting impact was that of Steven Hopler, a blind gun hobbyist from Rockaway Township.Although prosecutors have tried more than once to revoke Hopler's gun permits, Hopler has been allowed to keep his weapons under a 1994 order issued by Stanton, Hopler's attorney, Gregg Trautmann noted.Under Stanton's order, which stands today, Hopler may keep his weapons and may fire them if he is in the presence of an adult trained in the use of firearms, Trautmann pointed out."Judge Stanton allowed him to retain his second amendment rights," Trautmann said, noting he is citing the Hopler precedent in an ongoing case in Ocean County also involving a blind gun collector.Stanton "continues to be an influential figure in the judiciary today," Trautmann said.
