Trenton, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- This afternoon, the Brady Campaign and the Million Mom March (Mercer County NJ Chapter) announced that they are filing a lawsuit to force the New Jersey Attorney General to formally report on the public availability of so-called “smart guns.”
The lawsuit is intended to trigger New Jersey's 2002 smart gun law, which could eventually outlaw the transfer of handguns that do not incorporate the technology.
“New Jersey's smart-gun law is a dumb as it gets,” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach.
“It forces you to use an unproven technology to defend your life, and then exempts the state from liability when the gun goes ‘click' instead of ‘bang.' If it's such a great idea, then law enforcement shouldn't be exempt, and the free market should be able to determine its viability. ANJRPC will spare no effort or expense to prevent this gun ban from going into effect.”
There will be a media frenzy covering this event. The first stories available online as this alert was prepared include the following:
ANJRPC will provide additional details when they are available.
