Update on NJ Considering Prison Sentences for BB Gun Possession

Update on NJ Considering Prison Sentences for BB Gun Possession

New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- OK, it has been a long day, but I will try and briefly give you my take on today’s proceedings on A1216.

The news articles on this completely leave out the amount of opposition there was to this bill from members on both sides of the aisle.

It was approved, but with a VERY stern stipulation from ASM Nelson Albano that ASW Linda Stender needs to work with the ANJRPC, NJ2AS and other 2A groups to *AMEND* the bill.

Albano reserved his right to oppose the bill on the floor if the problems can’t be worked out.

Now, Scott Bach and I met with ASW Stender after the meeting. She feels that there may be unintended consequences to the bill. She is going back to the drawing board to see if the bill is really necessary. If not, she has agreed not to “move the bill”. There is currently no corresponding bill in the Senate.

My prediction is with all of the objections you all helped us raise, this bill will go no further. We will be in contact with ASW Stender, and we will be watching *EXTREMELY* closely for any activity on this or any similar bills.

THANK YOU *ALL* FOR YOUR HELP. Although this wasn’t a “decisive” win, I believe that we were able to convince them not to push for this bill. We will keep you informed.
