Panel Approves Plan to Restrict Number of Rounds of Ammunition for Self-Defense.

Standard Capacity Magazines Ban

Standard Capacity Magazines Ban

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Last Thursday,  the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee approved Assembly Bill 2006, sponsored by Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-6), by a 5 to 3 party line vote.

The bill further reduces the state’s magazine capacity restriction from 15 to 10 rounds.

The NRA strongly opposes A.2006.  The NRA-ILA State Liaison testified in Trenton against A.2006 when it was being heard in committee, joining gun owners who had packed the committee room, arguing strongly against this legislation.  Despite the presence of overwhelming opposition to A.2006, state lawmakers divided along party lines to report this bill from committee to the Assembly floor.

The NRA argued that the current magazine limit does not work, and any expansion of that restriction is sure to end in the same failure.  Violent criminals do not obey the law, and will continue to ignore laws such as this.  A.2006 will only impact law-abiding gun owners, placing them at a disadvantage while defending themselves and their families against criminals.  This bill does nothing to address public safety or violence.

A.2006 now goes to the full Assembly for a vote which could occur as early as next week.

Please contact your two Assemblymen immediately and respectfully ask them to oppose this unconstitutional restriction on your Second Amendment rights.

      New Jersey is at the forefront of government tyranny over it’s Citizenry!! The Very Reason; The Second Amendment was placed at such high priority by The Founding Fathers of this United States!!

      I can’t help but wonder when polite 2A support will end and a more physical exchange takes its place. It seems that there is a comprehensive lack of dialogue, and the ruling elite are not interested in representing those who elect them.

    3. TexStan,

      If we make our stand on the gun issue it’s too late, we’ve already lost. Rather than talk about fighting the govt how about not paying them? If they can confiscate our money (taxes) they’ve established the principle that they can confiscate from us. We don’t have a leg to stand on when we try to tell them not to take our guns. Not to mention that when we pay taxes we finance our own oppression. We’ll only be free when we start saying Molon Labe to the tax thugs when they come for our money.

      “That every man who puts money into the hands of a “government” (so called), puts into its hands a sword which will be used against himself, to extort more money from him, and also to keep him in subjection to its arbitrary will.” –Lysander Spooner

    4. In early America they called it “Taxation without Representation” and it led to revolution.

      It seems to me that in many of the eastern states it is past the time for talking and holding rallies. I would appear that it is time for storming of the capital and tarring and feathering these out of control elites. Stop talking about it and DO SOMETHING! If it is time to set off the revolution, it is time. What have we got to loose? Freedom, we’ve already lost that in many states. Dignity or the “moral” ground. Why worry about moral ground when you are dealing with immoral politicians? It is time for the people to SHOW these politicians that we have had enough and we are not going to take any more!

    6. 2 words for the gungrabbers: 1)Blow 2) Me!

    7. Two letters: “F.U.”

    8. Legislative “hearings” in NJ are nothing more than dog and pony shows. The result is predetermined. NJ legislators no longer feel obligated to represent the wishes of the electorate, but only to serve their own political interests, and impose their will, as they see fit. Time will tell if this is a wise strategy.
