New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- Action Required: S993 and A2777 Passed the Senate Law & Public Safety Committee. On Monday, May 5, 2014, the Senate Law & Public Safety Committee passed bills S993 (the Ten-Round Magazine Bill/Gun ban) and A2777 (flawed ‘reasonable deviation’ bill) along partisan lines by a vote of 3-2.
Even though 100’s of Second Amendment leaders and concerned gun owners from around the State appeared before the committee to testify against the bills.
What Can You Do?
These bills are not yet law. These bills will now quickly proceed before the full Senate for a vote. It is possible that a vote will be held as early as next week. Please inundate *EVERY* member of the Senate with the PROMISE to work in every election to defeat anyone who votes for Bill S993 or A2777.
Furthermore, we ask you to PLEDGE to each other right now that you will fulfill this promise when the time comes. The NJ2AS will provide the structure necessary to support the effort to DRIVE THESE PEOPLE OUT OF OUR HOUSE in Trenton, but *YOU* must be willing to provide the boots on the ground.
The text file of the email addresses of the full Senate is included below for your convenience. Simply copy and paste the addresses into your email.
Uncle Frank Wants You!!
The battle for RKBA in NJ continues. The NJ2AS needs many more individuals to contribute their knowledge and expertise. Most of all, we need Organizers, Analysts and Soldiers. We currently require more people with the skills necessary to help us properly structure our organization. We have already recruited an activism coordinator to aid in this task, but we are going to need YOUR help to succeed.
We are looking for people to become local area coordinators to help us to organize at the local level wherever they happen to live in NJ. If you feel that you have the ability to lead a small group of people in your county/legislative district, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Corey Mulholland is already in the process of gathering the names of individuals who are willing to help, but we need more people. Please click here for details.
In light of recent events, I believe many more of you will want to be involved. There are many projects that can be handled at the local level with a minimum commitment of time. It does not take a great deal of experience, just a genuine interest in the mission of the NJ2AS which is to promote RKBA in NJ.
In addition to Leaders and Organizers, we need people who are capable of doing some light independent research to help separate fact from fiction with regard to lawful firearms possession. A typical example is how people throw around the “fact” that if you own a firearm, you are more likely to have it used against you. Where did that come from? Is there any reliable data? Do we have RELIABLE data from a respected source that refutes it? It isn’t enough for us to SAY that it is bunk. We need to be able to demonstrate *WHY* we say it is bunk. I think you get the idea.
In any event, we need both leaders and soldiers in these and other areas in order to have an impact going forward. If you want to be part of the solution, please respond to this request ASAP. We can win this fight as it has been won in 40+ other states in the Union, but we must be willing to work together.Frank J. Fiamingo
