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.”

Actually the folks in those states are getting exactly what they want. Almost all of the people I talked with when I worked and traveled through those states hold the same opinions as the statists in their elected goobermnt. I would suggest to the decent people that believe in our Constitution to depart and find a place that is compatible with their beliefs, and let the communists lie themselves into the muck…
Actually, the people of NY, CO, NJ, RI and CA need to storm the legislature and drag ALL of the Liberal/Marxists out onto the public square and execute them. These people will not stop until they force the American patriots into a second revolution. Plain and simple.
There are a few pro gun polticians in New Jersey….. but we need more. here is my assemblymans speach on the floor today.
