Brady Campaign Sues NJ Attorney General Over NJ Smart Gun Law

Trenton, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- This afternoon, the Brady Campaign and the Million Mom March (Mercer County NJ Chapter) announced that they are filing a lawsuit to force the New Jersey Attorney General to formally report on the public availability of so-called “smart guns.”

The lawsuit is intended to trigger New Jersey’s 2002 smart gun law, which could eventually outlaw the transfer of handguns that do not incorporate the technology.

“New Jersey’s smart-gun law is a dumb as it gets,” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach.

“It forces you to use an unproven technology to defend your life, and then exempts the state from liability when the gun goes ‘click’ instead of ‘bang.’ If it’s such a great idea, then law enforcement shouldn’t be exempt, and the free market should be able to determine its viability. ANJRPC will spare no effort or expense to prevent this gun ban from going into effect.”

There will be a media frenzy covering this event. The first stories available online as this alert was prepared include the following:

    1. How about we countersue to force the NJ AG to put the Constitution into effect.

      Let’s go ahead and force the sheeple of NJ to actually buy a firearm that is grossly expensive, chambered in only a relatively anemic caliber (.22 LR), and performs at a 90% reliability standard (one round out of the ten round magazine will not fire). MAYBE THEN, the good citizens of NJ will wake up and finally vote out those politicians that despise guns, lawful civilian gun ownership, and gun owners.

      But, but, but, Obama gets to ignore the law at his imperious leisure?

      I would think twice before I pulled that trigger. It appears that the upper receiver & Barrel is on backwards so this will either shoot someone behind you like a loved one or yourself. Are these people so brain damaged they don’t have a clue what an actual gun looks like?

    5. I live in N.J. and believe these guns will save lives. The lives of home invaders, muggers, rapist, murderers and other violent offenders. We are proud that we have the some of the strictest gun laws in the nation AND one of the highest crime rates in America. WE’RE NUMBER ONE, WE’RE NUMBER ONE, YEA NEW JERSEY!!!! Too much toxic waste here has affected the people’s ability to think.

    6. @steve, the photo is a joke.

      That is one half of a set of Liberal Dueling Pistols.

    8. These guns will save nothing, iI would’nt own one if someone bought it for me. My guns are very smart, and they always shoot when I want them to without a stupid watch and an $1800.00 price tag. You’re so crazy about one of these guns, then go out and buy one and shove it. You are out of your mind along with all the others. These guns will get the owner killed QUICKLY. THEY’RE WORTHLESS. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    9. Hey pepe, I live in NEW JERSEY also and this law is disgusting. You really think muggers, murders and rapist deserve to live? I believe a rapist murders and possibly mugggers should be shot on site. The fact that you stick up for these types of people makes me sick. No one that I know in this state is proud of our worthless pathetic strict gun laws that save zero lives already. What a joke.

      Methinks Chris didn’t read the sarcasm in pepe’s post.

      A smart gun is one used to eradicate gun grabbers from existence. Got one of those?
