Trenton. NJ – -(Ammoland.com)- Assemblyman Republican Conference Leader David Rible, R-Monmouth and Ocean, released the following statement on Assembly passage of A-2006 which limits the capacity of gun magazines and A-2777 which establishes the definition of reasonable deviation in the law regarding transportation of firearms:
“Passage of the gun magazine ban is a victory for all gun-toting criminals who will continue to ignore our gun laws. At the same time, the legislation approved today only serves to make criminals out of law-abiding gun owners.
“Instead of including a simple amendment to clarify ‘reasonable deviation’ in transporting a firearm, we have now made it more likely that lawful gun owners will end up in jail.
“Taking away the rights of lawful gun owners does nothing to make our state safer and fails to address the mental health issues that led to several notorious mass shootings.
“We should be targeting criminals who illegally obtain and utilize firearms to commit their crimes, instead of again reducing the rights of legal gun owners to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
