New Jersey: Anti-Gun Legislation to be Heard in House Committee, Your Help Needed

Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday, June 2 2016, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee will hear Assembly Concurrent Resolution 175/Senate Concurrent Resolution 101.

Your NRA-ILA, along with Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJJRPC), vigorously supported New Jersey’s right to self-defense by testifying against ACR 175/SCR 101 at the beginning of May; however, SCR 101 passed the Senate and has now been scheduled to be heard next week.

Please contact members of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee and ask them to oppose ACR 175/SCR 101!

ACR 175/SCR 101 would block the Governor’s executive action on the incremental improvements to the state’s concealed carry standard.  Anti-gun lawmakers, led by Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37), have been crystal clear that they oppose self-defense for ordinary citizens.  More importantly, they completely oppose concealed carry in New Jersey.

The committee will also hear Assembly Bill 1426 / Senate Bill 816.  Like last year’s “smart gun” legislation that was vetoed by Governor Chris Christie, S816, sponsored by state Senator Weinberg, repeals the 2002 smart gun law; moreover, it forces all gun dealers in the state to provide this unproven technology for sale.  This backdoor attempt is nothing more than forced market acceptance of a product that has proven unreliable despite decades of research and development.  Presumably, the old smart gun law could then simply be reinstated, and within three years, traditional handgun sales would be forbidden by law.

Additionally, the committee will also hear Assembly Bill 3689.  A3689, sponsored by Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-6), would require a carry permit applicant to submit a written certification of justifiable need to carry a handgun.  The justification will be under oath and must specify in detail the “urgent necessity for self-protection, as evidence by specific threats or previous attacks”.  A person should not have to “prove” a justifiable need to exercise a constitutional right.  This legislation outrageously requires a person to be under attack before meeting the criteria prescribed in the bill.  A3689 is another example that anti-gun lawmakers completely oppose concealed carry and self-defense in New Jersey.

Please contact members of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee and respectfully ask them to oppose ACR 175/SCR 101, S816, and A3689!

Here’s an idea. How about if all the anti-gun fanatics were told that THEY would have to be the ones to come and take our weapons? Do you think they would still spout their vile garbage? I highly doubt it.

Hey Loretta put a cork in it, get in the car and go out and confiscate yourself, it’s easy after the first one it’s all down hill. As a retired LEO , we are tired of listening to idiots and their anti- American opinions, just your personal ideas but you won’t do nothing outside the office , you people want them go get them”. Your idea go ahead, oh remember this before you go, ” THIS IS AMERICA, ” Cops don’t like you ideas.

If the American citizens had to vote on Congressional pay raises, they would be afraid of trying to pass any gun restrictions because they would know it would mean loss of salary. They know that if they talk of gun control, the gun lobby will try to persuade (translate: bribe) them into dropping the matter. Don’t fool yourself. A lobbyist does more than just talk and try to persuade politicos to see their point of view. This is why politicians are so wealthy and remain in office until they die. Term limits would also be very helpful.

I second the idea to force the liberal idiot’s to give up all armed protection before any gun control laws are even talked about. See how they like being without protection before they try to force us to try it!!!!

Apparently, Weinberg considers “ordinary citizens” unworthy of being entrusted with defending themselves. Someone should tell her the leftist disarmament game is over. A hundred million owners of more than 300 million firearms won’t comply with creepy leftist bureaucrats anymore. From now on, they can pass a million laws and armed citizens will simply ignore them. New York has a million owners, criminalized by the SAFE Act, who have taken their guns underground. A quarter of a million Connecticut owners have followed. Weinberg is deluded by the irrational belief that tougher laws will control those who don’t obey laws. It’s absurd.… Read more »

For the life of me I will never understand why any state is against self defense. New Jersey has never been pro gun. In 1979 I lived in NJ and wanted to buy a handgun. Well first I had to get a firearms purchase ID, that took about a year. Next I had to go to the local police station an apply for a handgun purchase permit, that took over a year.

Let’s face it New Jersey stinks on gun control.

You forgot to donate large sums of cash to a Demon-Crat Legislator. With a large donation or kick back in Jersey you can have anything you want. Why do you think the TV Series The Sopranos was filmed here ? Our Government ranks 2nd to California as far as corruption, and the Dems are trying hard to make us #1.

Then if you think your officials are corrupt use the power that your state constitution gives you to remove them from office!

Ease up redneck. If you simply entered the text into a translator you’d find he’s apparently pro gun. You really want to alienate a potential ally because he doesn’t speak the same language? Seems pretty ignorant to me.

Why should I go to all that extra work of entering his writing into a translator to find out what he is saying, when I can quickly and easily just skip over his message? The burden to get the message across is on the author, not the reader. I will chose my own task masters.

If they believe so strongly about being against self protection they should lead by example. Start by turning in any/all guns held by themselves ,family and trusts. Then they need to disarm all security teams they have on payroll and all Secrete Service details and hired thugs like Blackwater that are hired and paid with American tax dollars. No means No . Not just to disarm those who are not them. A politician , in my opinion is not only not worth as much as a “normal American’, but generally just tools promoting their own agendas or the agendas of… Read more »

Recall? Just have the county sheriff walk in with a bunch of deputies behind him grabbed him by the Scruff of the neck and throw at last the hell out of the county! Case closed!

That is if the people of the county grow a set of stones and use some backbone and back up and support your County Sheriff in doing so!

In the meantime read your state constitution and utilize the powers given within to remove a corrupt official from office!

Damn! A drunk monkey smoking crack and do that!
