6 of 7 Anti-Gun Bills Pass NJ Committee Despite 100’s of Gun Owners Pushing Back

New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- Six of the seven anti-gun bills up in the Assembly Judiciary Committee were passed this afternoon, after a heated hearing in a jam-packed room that could not hold the hundreds who showed up (they were directed to an overflow room).

The media was also out in unprecedented numbers at the hearing. The smart gun bill (A1016) was held by the committee and not voted on.

Several hundred gun owners attended, many of whom testified passionately against the measures, along with gun rights leaders. Anti-gun organizations and activists were also out in force.

See the latest coverage of today's hearing on NJ.com.

The legislation could move to Senate committee as soon as next week. Please watch for further updates and alerts.

    1. THE hearing for those 7 idiotic gun grabbing bills on wendsday had hundreds ou pro freedom supporting gun owners . Their are supposed to be a million pluss of us in this state. There should be thousands of us at evary hearing they have.Look at how many people voted in the last election.We can have a real effect on every election .If we want fair representation in state and federal government we have to put it there.Get rid of the people who think we are deplorable, Lets start taking our state and countryback from the people who don’t deserve to run it any more

    2. So far Trump has made many Demos… very unhappy. This might be all theater to deflect the media beating him up. When they finally put a BAD bill together … I believe then he will not sign it. We all know Biden is the jerk who wrote the law that made it a felony to defend yourself in a school area. Sad but teachers and especially administrators really do not give a damn about their students. Notice no superintendents have be killed…! They stay locked in their office.
      With all the welfare people and unions and teacher in NJ….. it is a dying state with regard to civil rights. You must just leave at you earliest convenience. Also… send a nice…. polite email to the white house and your congressman. OK.. a waste of time in NJ.. but that is about all you can to.. Rush stated t hat unions have given 1.7 billion dollars in the last 10 yrs to DEMOs… Do they really care about the rights of the working man ….?

    3. NJ Demacrap Gun Laws 2-28-18 I like the most : if you speak to a Marriage Counsellor or if you get a certain Traffic Ticket its GROUNDS TO SEIZE Your Firearms . Believe me folks its in there . These Dems are gonna endanger alot of innocent people . ^ of 7 Bills were voted and approved . Sanctuary Gov. Phil Murphy stated he will sign any and ALL GUN BILLS he receives

    4. I recommend if you believe in the Constitution you will have to move from NJ and the North East. A lot of people in these states really don’t care or know about their rights. The Democrats Party really don’t care about the Constitution they really want to get rid of it just look at the Judges they Appoint.

    5. The post office sells pre-stamped postcards for about 46 cents. One thing you can do is buy some and write notes on them and send them to the Pres. And the Gov. and your Rrepresentatives. Every post office employee who handles it along its way will read it, for sure. And your message will influence their thoughts also, and they will pass those thoughts on to all their friends, one way or the other. You should date it and take a photo of it with your phone for future reference. Try and be nice, or at least don’t get yourself arrested. I always try to keep a dozen on hand, but I am not always nice.

    6. The united states AS A WHOLE will eventually lose their rights also if anti 2A states are not brought to heal now while conservatives dominate and there are enough 2A friendly democrat lead states willing to support.

      What happens in places like New Jersey doesn’t stay in Jersey. The rest of the U.S. fail to understand any generation under a anti 2A state begets yet another generation knowing no better and thus spreads. A cancer grows from within.

    7. Let NJ go down in flames. I hope it starts with the ones who passed these bills. They have no idea about guns and how responsible gun owners are and use guns. The criminals will get guns no matter what these idiots do. Just look at Chicago where Trenton and Newark will be in less than a year with the same crime statistics.

      1. The united states AS A WHOLE will eventually lose their rights also if anti 2A states are not brought to heal now while conservatives dominate and there are enough 2A friendly democrat lead states willing to support.

        What happens in places like New Jersey doesn’t stay in Jersey. The rest of the U.S. fail to understand any generation under a anti 2A state begets yet another generation knowing no better and thus spreads. A cancer grows from within.

    8. Our democrate run state government, wants to legalise pot, give convicted criminals the vote they forfeited,and is now going to fund planned parient hoods murder of unborn children.They are making nj a sanctuary state for criminal aliens . THERE IS NO ROOM FOR LAW BIDING PEOPLE!!!

      1. What could possibly go wrong?? Why is it that since all the drug laws haven’t produced the ‘expected (by dems)’ results, that they decide to now make it legal? Why doesn’t this thinkng also apply to guns??

        I’m so confused..

    9. Fair warning…don’t watch any of the side videos after this one. It’ll blow your damn mind! CNN has lost it!

    10. target, one million legal gun owners, no mention of school safety, or school guards, or illegal drugs and aliens in NJ, in 180 days we can turn ourselves in, or go to landwatch.com, and get the F out of Nazi Jersey………..

      next week they pass legal pot for everyone, the Chinese and Russians will bury us………

    11. Liars, cheats, thieves, traitors, democrats, progressives, socialists – wanting more anti-gun laws that only affect the law-abiding. Surprise, surprise. And the citizens of NJ keep voting for them. More surprises. I wonder how many democrat voters are illegals? Shhhhhhh – that’s a secret.

    12. Please contact President Trump directly and tell him NO ON GUN CONTROL, specifically no ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN. Remind him that gun owners and specifically the NRA got him elected. Tell him he won’t have to worry about a re-election in 2020 because with this historical betrayal, he’ll lose the house in 2018, at which time he’ll be impeached. https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/

      1. I believe after yesterday’s gun control summit at the White House, and make no mistake, it was a gun control summit, we’ve seen exactly where Trumps true colors are. He is not progun or pro-Second Amendment. He is a businessman and pragmatist who sees a problem and will do ANYTHING to get that problem out of his way, including going back on what he promised during the campaign. This makes him extremely dangerous for our side, much more so than Hillary because he is charismatic and has the ability to bend the Republicans.

        We should be looking, right now, for a candidate with true beliefs on the Second Amendment. Fortunately we’ve also discovered that’s not Rubio, who was cowed into submission by a bunch of mush for brains programmed kids the other day and wound up at a complete loss for words.

        1. @Mr Walkker, Trump wants what every administration wants… a second term! We can provide it. That gives us leverage. I am reliable informed that thirty thousand read Ammoland every day. If we all email the Donald at whitehouse.gov/contact, send a hard copy letter to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and register repub so that we can vote in the primaries, we can win this!

      2. I think (hope) he’s playing rope-a-dope with them. He knows it won’t pass with all that bullshit in there but is letting them put the whole kitchen sink in. Then he can say “oh well, that’s the way it goes”. We’ll just have to wait and see.

    13. NJ can Kiss My Azz. I’m not giving up or changing a thing because New Jersey Says so. If they don’t Arrest the Democrats for spying on Trump, I don’t see any Law or Justice here I have to Obey..

    14. So the hell with the Constitution. We will just tell you what you can have and what you can’t and you just have to sit and take it. Well this is what you get when you let man Rule over man. This is how civil War starts.
