NJ Democrats Work Back Room ‘Deal’ to Disarm & Residents, Don’t Bother to Check with Voters

New Jersey Second Amendment Society

New Jersey Second Amendment Society

New Jersey --(Ammoland.com)- New Jersey Democrats in the Senate and Assembly announced that they have reached a “deal” to ban firearms magazines over the arbitrary number of 10 rounds.

It was claimed in a news article that this “deal” was in exchange for supporting a bill favorable to firearms owners, amending the existing “reasonable deviation” restriction in transportation of firearms to and from the range.

The New Jersey Second Amendment Society was not involved in any such “deal” and is unaware of any rights-based organization in New Jersey that supports a reduction in magazine capacity from the current 15 rounds to an arbitrary 10 rounds. It appears the “deal” was made between Democrats in both houses of the Legislature.

The New Jersey Second Amendment Society condemns such backroom “deals” by the Legislature, particularly as the people of New Jersey have not been given the opportunity to testify or attend hearings on the subject matter.

Criminals will not certainly NOT abide by such magazine reductions, once again leaving the law-abiding citizen to remain in a position of State-mandated victimhood.

The New Jersey Second Amendment Society maintains that the actions of the Legislature are unconstitutional in both substance and procedure, and an appropriate response is warranted.

It was further announced today that Democratic legislative leaders will host some Newtown, Connecticut Victims’ families at a press conference in support of this latest attempt at gun control in New Jersey. The NJ2AS, its leadership, membership and supporters all mourned the senseless killing of innocent children by a madman in Newtown, Connecticut. However, the Democrats in the New Jersey Legislature are exploiting the victims and their families, using tragedy and related emotion to further infringe on the rights of New Jersey’s law-abiding gun owners. For this, we cannot stand despite the degree of emotion involved.

Each and every member and supporter should be prepared to become involved in stopping this unconstitutional attack on our liberties. Be on the alert for further communications regarding how you can help the Society respond to these unconstitutional attacks once that information is available.
