Trenton, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Keep flooding legislators with calls, faxes, and emails And then come pack the Committee hearing room on Wednesday!

This is the worst threat to NJ gun rights in history Your efforts matter most right now!

Buses to Trenton on Wednesday are being planned, But you must register immediately so Arrangements can be finalized.

As reported in our last alert, the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hold hearings on a package of 24 gun bills on Wednesday, February 13 beginning at 10 a.m. in the State House Annex, Committee Room 11, 4th Floor, Trenton, NJ (directions here).

The worst of these bills have the effect of banning all rifle-barreled shotguns, numerous rifles and handguns, most rifle ammunition, and magazines that hold over 10 rounds.Ammunition sales would be severely restricted, logged and reported to the State Police, and internet and catalog sales would be banned.

Unaccountable health practitioners (including nurses, social workers, and marriage counselors!) would be turned into spies with the power to effectively suspend Second Amendment rights and have firearms seized. And the exercise of the Constitutional right to own firearms would be conditioned on proof of having firearms safety training. And that’s just the beginning (see detailed bill analysis here).

It is imperative that gun owners and sportsmen flood the Committee Members with phone calls, faxes, and emails between now and Wednesday morning voicing their opposition to these bills (see legislator contact information below). If you’ve already sent an email, please go the distance and make the extra effort to also send in faxes and make phone calls to each member of the Committee, and please do so on both Monday and Tuesday of this week.The extraordinary challenge we are facing needs an extraordinary response from gun owners and sportsmen.

Then, we need to pack the committee room on Wednesday with a show of unity and strength to make sure that legislators who won’t see the light will definitely feel the heat.Everyone will not get to testify, and this will not be a rally, but we need to all be there in a courteous and respectful show of strength. Bus transportation is being planned and coordinated in a joint effort between ANJRPC and NJ2AS. Click here for information and to register – we need to know if you’re coming ASAP so we can finalize arrangements.

On Monday and Tuesday, please call, fax, and email every member of the Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee (listed below). Tell them to vote no on these extreme gun and ammunition bans and other new anti-gun measures, and urge them to instead support meaningful measures to address school safety and the mental health system. Tell them that their proposals will not prevent another tragedy, because criminals and madmen who already ignore New Jersey’s thousands of gun laws will not follow another new law.

NOTE: We have received conflicting information over the weekend as to whether anti-gun legislation will be considered by the full Assembly on Thursday, February 14.Accordingly, at this time we are only targeting the committee hearing on Wednesday, February 13th for attendance by gun owners.

    1. When I left NJ in 75 it was already an over taxed, @@@ run, police state sh@@hole! The modest house I lived in is now taxed at over 17 thou a year. You have to be a total f-tard to still reside in NJ. Hopefully it will be washed out to sea soon.

      Whoever wrote this legislation is a traitor to the oath they took to uphold the Constitution of the USA, which is the supreme law of the land. All those who vote for this legislation should be impeached and tried for TREASON. Mark
      my words, the real killing will begin when WE THE PEOPLE are disarmed,
      which is exactly the intent of these elitist scoundrels. It has happened over
      and over again in rather recent history. Just ask Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro,
      Pol Pot, and a host of others and their like minded psychopathic killers.
      Our founding fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they penned
      The Second Ammendment with the phrase “shall not be infringed”. Just what
      part of that do they not understand ? May those traitorous scoundrels forever
      burn in hell for even putting forth this proposition.

    3. An illegal law is not a law and cannot be enforced but by treason.
      The people hold the power here! If this law passes, it is imperative that NO ONE comply and make that plain at the meeting!
      They cannot arrest and convict the majority- it is impossible!
      Then, the ones in power should be arrested by the people and tried.
      Do not let a small group tell millions what to do anymore.

    5. Make sure to throw all those who support this stuff out of office and don’t buy and products or services in their districts

    6. New Jersey is a corrupt police state. The cops there give out PBA cards
      To family and select friends so they enjoy the privilege as a trump cars for
      Traffic offenses to include drunken driving as long as you are not in an
      accident .

    7. Bill Baker on February 11, 2013 at 6:16 PM said:

      Guess I’m gonna have to look up PBA cards, no clue, could just be a duh moment, but unfamiliar with WehateNJ’s reference.

    8. Funny – People keep voting in the same criminal cartel year after year after year and stupidly expect a different result.

      And then piss & moan that the criminals are being mean to them.

      Until you start hunting down these criminals and quit waiting for some club or association to do your job for you – nothing will change.

      Get off your asses.

      I left NJ in 1994 and followed a dream to live in the south. I have never regretted my descision. I have the freedom to do as I wish without the state telling me I cannot. I can afford to do the things that in NJ I could only ever dream of. As the state implodes due to over regulation, I make one suggestion. If you understand that things are getting worse and that is not what you want, leave. Those in charge are feeding off of your compliance and taxing you to line their pockets. What they say they don’t mean, and they will not stand for your rights as is their job. Move south where the majority of those living here think as you do. Saving NJ is like trying to rehab those that live in a crack house in crackville without pulling them out of the situation and changing there perspective. It isn’t going to work…
