Watered-Down “Fix” to Firearms Transportation Law, Is Supposed to Pacify Legal Gun Owners..?

Trenton, NJ --( A news story is making the rounds today indicating that a “deal” has been cut between Senate and Assembly Democrats to ban firearms magazines over 10 rounds, in exchange for a supposed “fix” to a firearms transportation law that threatens gun owners with incarceration if they stop en route to the range or other authorized points.

The story indicates that legislative leaders will be joined by Newtown victims’ families as part of “the fanfare” (the reporter’s words, not ours) at an upcoming press conference.

The story has fueled speculation among gun owners that Second Amendment organizations were somehow involved in this supposed “deal.”

Neither Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs , nor any other Second Amendment organization of which we are aware, had any involvement in such an arrangement.

More importantly, this news is a reminder that there remain politicians in the Garden State who continue to exploit tragedy to advance a pre-conceived agenda that has nothing to do with stopping criminals or madmen, and everything to do with limiting the self-defense rights of law-abiding citizens.

Arbitrary magazine limits do nothing to stop tragedy. Those bent on doing evil will not follow a magazine ban, and even if they did, magazines can be changed quickly. This kind of legislation gives criminals advantage over the law-abiding, and ties the hands of citizens in an emergency or home invasion.

Additionally, the idea that gun owners will accept a magazine ban in exchange for a supposed “fix” of an unrelated issue, is absurd. Both issues represent an infringement of Constitutionally protected rights. Gun owners will never, ever trade one infringement for another.

The message to gun owners is clear: the threat to Freedom in the Garden State is ever-present, and it will soon be time to answer the call once again. Please get ready to attend upcoming hearings when they are announced, and to speak out in every way possible.

Please watch for upcoming alerts with details as soon as we have them.

    1. This Newtown thing is being milked left and right for gun control.
      But an investigator, former Florida state trooper, stated that the event is staged as he cannot get any info via CT FOIA requests as they are being blocked.

      This is the obscession of NJ Assembly Lou Greenwald. Along with Sen. Sweeney they once again rise to the attack on Legal, Lawful gun owners in NJ. And Ammoland they will strongly persist and continue.

      The Demoncats never relent. Is there ever a reason to vote for these clowns? If ten rounds are “appropriate”, what will they think is “reasonable” next week? While these legislators are surrounded by security armed with automatic weapons with high capacity magazines, they feel compelled to leave us, and our families vulnerable to criminals who will pay no attention to their latest edicts? There is a tipping point, and NJ is about there.
