New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- Members of the NJ2AS, ANJRPC and other concerned New Jersey firearms owners filled the Assembly hearing room to capacity yesterday, requiring that the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee hearing on A2006 and A2777 be moved to a larger room to accommodate the crowd.

Despite the testimony of 100’s of New Jersey firearms owners and Second Amendment leaders, Assembly Bills A2006 (Ten-Round Magazine Limit bill) and A2777 (so-called Reasonable Deviations bill) passed and were released out the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee today by a vote of 5-3, along party lines, with Democrats voting yes.

While these bills are not yet law, a full vote will soon be held before the Assembly. You are therefore, encouraged to contact your local Assemblyperson and encourage him or her to oppose the bills.

We will update you as more information becomes available.

I have already spoken to my 2 gun friendly state asseemblymen and my gun friendly state legislators. they oppose the bill. It will most likely pass as large chunks of nj have electorate who do not want guns period. We can hope fro a few changed minds bu ultimately it is likely up to the governor.
