Several of you have asked for a sample letter to use as a FAX or email to our Assembly and Senate representatives. I would like to offer the following as a possibility to use as an example:

Dear Representative,

Bills A2006 and S993 are unlikely to reduce the number of gun deaths in New Jersey. The mere possession of a 15 round capacity magazine for sporting purposes and/or home defense should not be made a crime. We should concentrate our efforts on those individuals who use any capacity magazine to murder people.

If we wish to examine the correlation between gun deaths and magazine capacity higher than 10 rounds, we can safely ignore both accidents and suicides. In both of these cases, the number of rounds in the firearm will not matter since it is unlikely the individuals involved would fire more than one round. If we also eliminate justified shootings by police and those defending their lives and families, we are left primarily with a pool of criminal shooters. If someone is willing to murder another human, he or she is unlikely to be deterred by a 10 round magazine capacity limit. In addition, these bills result in an outright GUN BAN on commonly used firearms with fixed capacity tubes.

In the meantime, if these bills are passed you will immediately create an entirely new class of criminals out of formerly law-abiding individuals. Those of us who have scrupulously obeyed the voluminous restrictions contained in the New Jersey Firearms Statutes will suddenly be in possession of items that were completely legal to possess prior to the imposition of these unnecessary additional restrictions. Hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of magazines and firearms will immediately become contraband. Enforcement will become a nightmare as well as an unnecessary provocation of otherwise completely law-abiding New Jersey residents. For what purpose? We are not the individuals committing the murders you should be trying to control. The signing of these bills into law will merely make us less able to defend our homes and families against invasion by actual criminals.

There are far too many murders committed in our cities on a regular basis by gangs, drug dealers and career criminals. Both adults and children become the victims of these crimes. I am absolutely certain that concentrating Legislative, Judicial and Executive efforts on the reduction of poverty, drugs and crime in our cities would result in the reduction of far more murders than imposing further restrictions on law-abiding individuals.

We petition you to use the powers of your office to oppose bills A2006 and S993 simply because it is the correct thing to do.

–whey do we not vote with our $$…do not buy anything from states like theses; move our businesses out

Kevin McGonigal

I have a question. If the bill defining reasonable deviation is amended to reestablish the judicial discretion do we then support passage of the bill? I am a bit confused on this.


Half the numbers didn’t go through when I faxed today.
