Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Undeterred by the Garden State’s failed, draconian gun laws, Senator Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-37) has quickly schemed to block Governor Chris Christie’s recent executive action.

A few weeks ago, we reported that the Attorney General issued a directive that took steps toward fixing some of the rampant abuses with New Jersey gun laws.

The executive action clarified the “justifiable need” standard for concealed carry permit issuance and the reasonable “deviation” language with regard to firearm transportation.

The directive also compels local law enforcement to comply with existing state law and halt the flagrant permitting abuses with respect to FID cards and purchase permits.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 101 would block the Governor’s executive action on the incremental improvements to the state’s concealed carry standard.

Anti-gun lawmakers, led by Sen. Weinberg, have been crystal clear that they oppose self-defense for ordinary citizens.  More importantly, they completely oppose concealed carry in New Jersey.

SCR 101 is scheduled to be heard in the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee at 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, in Committee Room 10 on the 3rd Floor of the Statehouse Annex in Trenton.  Anti-gun lawmakers gave less than 24 hours-notice in posting this bill in an attempt to silence gun owners.  In addition, we fully expect that this bill will be up for Senate floor action on Monday if it passes committee.

It is more important than ever that you click the “Take Action” button above and immediately contact your state Senator as well as members of the committee and respectfully urge them to strongly oppose this outright assault on the Second Amendment.   

If you can attend the hearing, your participation would be greatly appreciated to show lawmakers enough is enough in the Garden State.

    If you live in and vote for these libtards, or do business with companies in The People Republic of New Jersey you are part of the problem. Vote smart and do zero business with any company in the PRNJ and let them know why.

    I can’t understand why these politicians with Jewish heritage continue to demand an end to firearms for law abiding citizens.

    Perhaps she should watch a Holocaust documentary.

    Weinberg has been whining about guns for years. What I don’t understand is why she hasn’t been voted out of office?

    WHY is it that all the dimocrp women look like dried up old hags or rotting zombies. If Hillary ever got caught in a rain storm 90% of her face would wash off leaving nothing but wrinkles and pits.
