Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee [what does this committee have to do with gun laws?] voted on a 3-2 party-line vote to pass Senate Concurrent Resolution 101.

Your NRA-ILA, along with ANJRPC, vigorously supported New Jersey’s right to self-defense by testifying against SCR 101.  However, anti-gun lawmakers would rather push their own political agenda than allow their constituents to protect themselves.  SCR 101 could be considered by the full Senate as early as Monday, May 9 2016.

Please continue to contact your state Senator and politely urge them to OPPOSE SCR 101 when it comes up for a vote.

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.

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

Maybe if Christie had stayed his A** home and not been so gung-ho to kiss Obama’s and Trump’s A** he could have gotten this stuff passed. No, he had to suck up to Obama and help him get re-elected and then run around the country campaigning for president, and then suck up to Trump for VP. I hope Trump don’t pick Christie as VP, if he does it will end his chances to be President.

You had me worried for a bit, but since I live in Vermont, this law would not effect me and my input would be ignored by any State Senator of the Mafiocracy of New jersey. We are having our own problems, as the Humane Society has tried to sneak in an anti-hunting bill at the last minute. Our VT Gun Owners Assoc reported that all of Bloomberg’s bills were ‘dead in the water” early in the legislative session but warned that something might be attempted in the closing sessions. This may be it.

Think how easy firearms are to track, identify, and regulate now. I would suggest stop recycling & releasing criminals as a solution. What happens when the scared disarmed people develop non-traceable unregulated microwave, laser, radioactive, incendiary, explosive, and chemical lethal weapons? Even the most secure prisons in the USA cannot stop cell phones, drugs, and weapons of all types. On the streets, anything goes like using WD-40 to light children on fire. Disarming law abiding regulated citizens will surely lead to creative untraceable weapons and something far worse.

Everything will be fine when President Trump takes office, and ALL STATES will have the same gun rights. No commercial gun bans of any type… and the “Assult type” weapons bans are recinded…
EVEN IN CALIFORNIA!
