Trenton, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- As anticipated, Senate action on S993(gun ban / mag ban) is now set to resume with a hearing of the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee officially scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 5th 2014.

Gun owners, hunters and sportsmen need to immediately tell members of the committee to oppose this blatant attack on their rights that will not affect crime or prevent another tragedy.

If you are able, please plan on attending the hearing in person and testifying (Committee Room 10 in the State House Annex, 125 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08625 – time and location are subject to change).

Please also continue to contact Governor Christie and urge him to oppose S993.

For current talking points on S993, see this recent Op-Ed published in The Record.

Also, while there is not yet a Senate version of A2777 (firearms transportation issues), the Assembly version is shown on the agenda for May 5. Accordingly, please also immediately tell the members of the committee to make the following one-word amendment to A2777 to restore judicial discretion on firearms transportation issues:

For the purposes of this section, “deviations as are reasonably necessary” means includes collecting and discharging passengers whose transportation is permitted under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section, purchasing fuel, using a restroom, and contending with an emergency situation. A person transporting a weapon pursuant to this subsection shall comply with all other applicable State laws relating to weapons.
