New Jersey-(Ammoland.com)- Tomorrow, the New Jersey Senate will vote on a couple of bills that once again attack the state’s law-abiding gun owners while ignoring the state’s violent crime problem.

Earlier this year, Governor Chris Christie took the bold and unprecedented step in New Jersey to expand the justifiable need standard to make it easier for law-abiding citizens to obtain a concealed carry permit. This incremental improvement would expand the state’s standard to include more general “serious threats,” rather than the state’s current standard which is almost impossible to meet. Since then, anti-gun lawmakers have been scrambling to do everything in their power to block that effort. SCR 117, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-37), would reject the state police’s rule change with respect to “justifiable need.” Clearly, Sen. Weinberg doesn’t believe in self-defense for ordinary citizens. The few permits issued in New Jersey have been reserved for the rich and famous and politically connected. While state lawmakers enjoy armed security protection, anti-gun politicians in Trenton have abandoned ordinary citizens.

S.152, sponsored by Senator Fred Madden (D-4), would criminalize possession of the SS190AP (armor-piercing) round for the FN Five-Seven handgun. This ammunition is already banned under existing federal and state law:

18 U.S.C. 922(a)(7) and (8) prohibit the manufacture or import of armor-piercing ammunition, and N.J.S. 2C:39-3f bans armor-piercing ammunition.

The round is not even available to civilians. In other words, this legislation is redundant and unnecessary.

Please contact your state Senator and respectfully ask him/her to vote against these bills. Remind them that you support a law-abiding citizen’s right to carry and right to self-defense.

Loretta WHINE-berg was caught on tape saying ” we need to CONFISCATE guns “.
Play this when someone says : ‘ Nobody is trying to take guns away ‘ ….. here’s proof.

They are pushing into Pennsylvania and Virginia now , disease is spreading.

The States like California, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, etc. Are lost. They are never coming back. Best thing a gun owner can do is move. Take your property, cash out, and move out. Go to a State that acknowledges your rights. I make a conscious effort to not do business with any State or any business that doesn’t support my beliefs. It’s not always possible but I do my best. Move to a new State and then redouble your efforts to keep your rights intact.

The problem is that those gun friendly states are shrinking as Bloomberg and Soros pour millions of dollars into electing anti-gun politicians. If Hillary gets elected, and that looks like a real possibility, between her executive orders, an anti-gun Congress and a rubber stamp Supreme Court, gun ownership as we know it will be a faded memory.

Christie could make one move that would perhaps rattle those stuipd lawmakers (pardon the redundance here….) Simply order ALL armed security to stand down and cease to protect all lawmakers for the duration of the next legislative session.

Nothing like a foxhole experience to cause someone to reassess a “firmly held” position.

I ain’t contacting my state senator Sacco as it is a waste of time. He’s been in Senate since early 90s and for some reason people are still voting for him. Oh wait, I know why!: That’s because Hudson county is full of immigrants like me that listen to the media propaganda that Racist Republicans are evil and hate them. Also, most of them come from countries where 2A does not exist and all they know about guns is from movies and media which is portrayed in negative light. I know this as I was there myself. It’s a miracle… Read more »

We have the same problem here in the socialist republic of Connecticut. The problem is that as you suggest, gun owners still vote party lines. Another issue is that there are many “gun clubs” and pro-gun organizations that by their nature, discourage many from joining and participating. There is no grass roots effort on the part of gun owners to enact change to protect their 2A rights. They expect either the NRA or someone else to do it for them. I’m afraid that this November we may witness the beginning of the end to gun ownership as we know it.

Look into the Appleseed project….. all volunteer nationwide organisation dedicated to restoring America to a nation of riflemen, AND re-planting the history of HOW our nation was founded… by a bunch of patriots who KNEW HOW TO SHOOT and had decided they’d had enough of George’s tyranny. Appleseedinfo dot org, events hosted in every state.. yes, even commieformula and Noo Joiesy and Illinois. No better rifle marksmanship training anywhere, even in military. And the history is told during every shoot.. who did what when why and how… oral story that is rich and engaging. Been doing it for twelve years… Read more »

So I did a quick look see and although the Appleseed project has it’s merits, it is as I have said just another stand alone pro-shooting sports group, and still does not solve the issue with building up local gun clubs whose waiting lists are so long that one could die of old age before a spot opens up. Even if it did, you have to be a close friend or relative to even getting sponsored. Thanks for the info but, I still have little confidence that we can turn the decline of the 2nd Amendment around.

Most articles on AL would be generously described as either property defence or more accurately honor defence. Very few would fall under self-defence.

How does that relate to the NJ article? And how does that make it less significant? As for the article, it once again illustrates that ignorance is not the best way to craft law. That “feelings” are not justifiable as a basis for law. Certainly we all make decisions emotionally at first and then work to justify them rationally. But it seems so many on the Left decided to not be bothered with that rational justification phase…just “Feelings…nothing more than feelings..” I’m all for listening to your gut feeling. It often is right, since it is your subconscious, which has… Read more »
