Trenton, NJ –-(  This afternoon, the New Jersey Assembly passed A2006 (gun ban / mag ban) on a partisan vote of 46-31.

The Assembly also passed A2777 (reasonable deviations in firearms transportation) without the simple one-word amendment that would have made it an incremental improvement over existing law instead of making it worse, on a partisan vote of 42-29 with 4 abstentions.

Full attention is now on the state Senate, which could take the legislation up next week.

Please continue to contact every State Senator by email, and your State Senator by phone and fax, and urge them to oppose S993 (gun ban / mag ban). Please also continue to contact Governor Christie with the same message.

Today's Assembly proceedings can be viewed here (select Thursday, March 20, 2014 when it becomes available, then click “view”). In a subsequent alert, we will publish the full voting list on A2006 and A2777.

The following Assembly members made pro-Second Amendment floor speeches in defense of freedom, in the following order:

  • Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25)
  • Assemblyman Parker Space (R-24)
  • Assemblywoman Alison McHose (R-24)
  • Assemblyman David Rible (R-30)

    1. I’m proud of my Assembly Ladies, Mary Pat Angelini and Caroline Casagrande for their no votes on this stupid, unnecessary legislation. I’m glad to see some politicians listen to the people.

    2. Unfortunate situation in NJ.

      NJ has no provision for the citizen self defense.

      The law abiding citizens are on their own while the criminals roam freely with their own firearms.

      The politicians have their own firearms and or personal security teams.

      The rest of NJ has 911.

    3. Assume you are referring to A2777. Adding back judicial discretion plus certain permitted deviations would make it better than what we currently have and much better than what was passed, which wound up being more dangerous to gun owners. While no restrictions on when and where I can pee is the ultimate goal…an amended A2777 is preferable to both what we have now and what we will be getting.

    4. Let’s just dispense with the bullsh!t. They’re not “Democrats”, they’re Communists.

      The best way to defeat evil is to kick its’ ass, and then do it again.

    5. I have a question. If the senate version includes the amendment that reestablishes judicial discretion are we then to support the bill? I am a bit confused on this. Thanks

    6. I emailed a large list of reps from an article posted from the NJ2AS in regards to this mag ban. Assemblyman David Rible (R-30) along with several others, responded and said they were against this bill. It good to see their names in this article. That backs up, the responses they give me. Hoping that Governor Christie throws this bill in the garbage.

    7. It really sounds like Bloomberg has done his homework in NJ and had the elected officials in place to pass an even more restrictive gun bill.
      I could not live in a state that is so restrictive of God given and Constitutional rights.
      NJ, NY and CA have let their elected officials take their freedoms. There is no such thing as a free lunch, even when Bloomberg is buying the meals & whiskey

    8. I feel so sorry for you guys in these crazy states, heck even krazy Kalifornia is starting a turn around with the ccw rights. You gotta get out of there! Move out here to the S.W. No snow unless you head to the mountains with some great ski areas. Plenty of pro gun support and even no state income tax in NV. Vote with you checkbook.
