Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On Monday, September 12 2016, the New Jersey Senate Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider S.152.

Sponsored by state Senator Fred H. Madden Jr., S.152 would criminalize the possession of the SS190AP (armor piercing) cartridge for the FN Five-Seven handgun. This ammunition is already banned under existing law.

S.152 makes a point to demonize the SS190AP but makes no mention that it is already against federal law to manufacture armor-piercing ammunition or import it for sale to the public.

The legislation also neglects to mention that armor-piercing ammunition is already banned under state law, and that the cartridge is not available to civilians.

Criminals do not abide by existing, new, or redundant gun laws [no matter how much we double down on the same laws]. Criminals will continue to break the law using whatever tool they wish to commit their crimes.

Instead of spending time on unnecessary and redundant legislation like S.152, anti-gun lawmakers should focus their efforts on stopping criminals from committing crimes.

“Instead of spending time on unnecessary and redundant legislation like S.152, anti-gun lawmakers should focus their efforts on stopping criminals from committing crimes.”

Stopping criminals was NEVER their intent or goal. It is ONLY about hindering law-abiding Citizens.

EL PROBLEMA NO SON LAS INVESTIGACIONES Y LOS AVANCES QUE LA EXPERIMENTACIÓN VAYAN DANDO
A CONOCER,SINO QUIENES SE APODERAN DE ESTOS AVANCES TECNOLÓGICOS,POR LO TANTO,SI ESTÁ
SIENDO MAL UTILIZADO Y EN PERJUICIO DE LOS SERES HUMANOS INOCENTES,LO LÓGICO SERÍA QUE SE
PONGA EN PRISIÓN A LOS DELINCUENTES,PORQUE SU IDEA SERÁ SIEMPRE PERJUDICAR A LA SOCIEDAD,
EN LUGAR DE TENER QUE PROHIBIR EL ADELANTO QUE EL HOMBRE VA LOGRANDO . EL QUE MOLESTA ES
EL DELINCUENTE O EL ASESINO.

Well….I guess if they’re wasting their time on stupid redundant laws, they’re not spending that time making stupid new laws.

You can count on the UN quislings having SS190 when they show up. Ask them what color their helmet is? When they say ‘blue’ just respond with ‘I didn’t ask you how you got your helmet’. LOL
