Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Originally scheduled for Monday, March 3 2014, but now postponed due to weather,  the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing on Assembly Bill 2006, introduced by Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-6).

A.2006 seeks to lower New Jersey’s magazine limit from 15 rounds to 10.  The Garden State is one of only six states in the nation that even has a magazine capacity restriction.

Such restrictions only prevent law-abiding citizens from being able to effectively defend themselves from criminals who ignore such arbitrary limits on magazine capacity.

Rather than focus on real solutions to the state’s crime problem, lawmakers in Trenton are once again looking to punish the state’s law-abiding gun owners.  This unconstitutional legislation represents the largest magazine ban and confiscation scheme in the history of the state.  These magazines are in common use, and there are hundreds of thousands of them which are lawfully owned and used by law-abiding gun owners in New Jersey.  This legislation could turn thousands of unsuspecting, law-abiding citizens, who currently possess magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition for self-defense and other lawful purposes, into felons.  The location for the committee hearing is provided below.  (Could change by Monday)

Hearing Information
Monday, March 3 at 1:00 p.m. (Rescheduled, new date to be announced)
State House Annex, Room 12
West State Street
Trenton, NJ 08625

    1. NJ’s Assembly Bill 2006 will reduce firearm magazine capacity of law abiding citizens from 15 to 10 rounds.

      In other news, criminals will continue to use higher capacity firearm magazines to commit crime.

    2. 1996 Chuck Davis, spokesman for N.J. attorney general, told the Sunday Star Ledger “if they don’t catch you with the weapon [in a criminal act], they’re not going to charge you. We’re not going to get a search warrant and search somebody’s home. That was not the intent of the law.” (Assault weapons ban and magazine law)

    3. I sent an email to each of the Assembly People that were supposed to be at the meeting on Monday, one, ONE of them emailed me back. David Rible sent, what did not sound like a form letter, a reply to me the next day. No one else has deigned to respond.

    4. Another democratic state, you guys are getting what you voted for. What’s bad for us in the south is these democratic leaches are fleeing the mess they have created in their states into ours and bringing their statist thinking with them.

    5. This site needs to provide a link and contact info for The Govener’s office. If he ever wants to move into national politics he will need to demonstrate that he can control the left wing loons.

    6. I have called several of these legislators and was politely told they were only collecting opinions from their constituents and not from the rest of the states population. They legislative aids who are doing their job said response from the legislators constituents was running 5-1 in favor of this legislation. As mentioned the aids are doing as hey are told.

    7. All I can say is that D Murphy said it best. You get what you vote for. From my cold dead hands is what they are gonna have to do

    8. I guess NJ Gov don’t watch any Youtube,
      Sheriff tests novice and experienced shooter using 10 and 15 round magazines.
