New Jersey : Surprise Gun Legislation Announced at Last Possible Minute

New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- FRIDAY NIGHT SURPRISE: At close of business last Friday, a special session of the Assembly Judiciary Committee for Wednesday, February 28 2018 to consider anti-gun legislation was simultaneously scheduled and announced.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee is scheduled to meet at 11:00 a.m. in Committee Room 11 on the 4th floor of the State House Annex on State Street in Trenton (note: the committee room could change).

The following bills are scheduled to be considered:

  • A2761 Magazine Ban: Reduces maximum capacity of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds
  • A2759 Ammo Ban: Prohibits possession of ammunition capable of penetrating body armor.
  • A2758 Kills Right to Carry: Codifies regulations defining justifiable need to carry handgun.
  • A2757 Requires dealer background checks for private gun sales.
  • A1016 Smart Guns: Establishes commission to approve smart guns; requires firearm retailers to sell smart guns.
  • A1217 Authorizes gun violence restraining orders and firearm seizure warrants.
  • A1181 Requires firearms seizure when health “professionals” think someone poses risk.

We will provide detailed analysis of these bills in a subsequent alert. In the meanwhile, please begin contacting members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and tell them to vote no on these misguided proposals. Tell them that people intent on doing evil ignore hardware bans, and no one is made safer by them. Tell them that government's failure to protect the most vulnerable among us mandates that government instead focus on protecting and empowering potential victims rather than targeting the rights of the law-abiding. And tell them that Constitutional rights cannot be stripped by government without due process. Contact the members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Please plan on emailing legislators again next week with additional talking points, and please plan on attending Wednesday's hearing in person.

Please forward this email to every gun owner you know, and if you don't already receive alerts from ANJRPC, please subscribe to our free email alerts for the latest Second Amendment breaking news and action alerts.

A2759 Ammo Ban: Prohibits possession of ammunition capable of penetrating body armor.

So pretty much all rifle ammo?

When did a DEMOCRAP politician ever promise to protect the constitution and actually do it after they were elected???? Look at how FEW of these politicians have served in our military protecting the country. They are anti American cowards.

Check out the video of Jesse Ventura interviewing Dr. Robert Duncan, who was an inventor of “Voice of God” or “Voice To Skull” technological weapon. Wasn’t Cruz, the shooter at the Florida high school, reported to have said that he was obeying the commands he heard in his head ? Somebody is playing us, creating mass shooters with this once secret microwave technology, so that all these people do the knee jerk reaction and give up their liberty for some perceived safety. In the interview, Dr. Duncan expresses severe regret that he worked on that “Voice of God” technology because… Read more »

Yeah, according to reports, Cruz said he was told by head voices to commit the actions that he has admitted to, but I doubt that those voices told him that he would get home free after a short rehab stretch in a nutjob hotel. I’m sure his defense will work diligently toward that end, assuming that it ever goes to trial. If this guy got orders in his head, they certainly weren’t put there by any kind of god or microwaves. And if he is the one who killed these precious, innocent children, then he deserves nothing less than the… Read more »

@ExGob….maybe, but he isn’t the first shooter that heard voices in his head, and we now know that “Voice of God” technology is very real. For instance, if you will recall the Batman theatre shooter from Colorado was heavily Involved with neurolinguist sciences which are mentioned by Dr. Duncan as being part and parcel of what he helped create. And I do agree with you that Cruz should never walk free again, but before anyone puts him out of our misery, his brain has to be picked clean and all his previous associates and movements must be accounted for.

What an OUTRAGE, they left off illegal use of body armor, even Rahm Emanuel has that on his list of 17 new laws.

That’s because they want to be able to wear it anywhere and anytime, even after they are kicked out of office and their illegal laws are nullified. BTW, I “had a dream” that millions of people descended on Trenton with their rifles slung over their shoulders, and pistols caused bulges all over their bodies, and they all carried signs saying “We Will Not Comply” under a picture of a fist flipping the bird.

Liberal Gov campaigned that he will sign any and all gun control legislation sent to his desk.

On the other side, the new Governor wants to make NJ a Sanctuary State. Good Luck.

Can you imagine if he imported a million per year, 95% males between the ages of 18 and 45 ? Just like his Kommie Komrad Mrs. Merkel did in Germany for the past 2 years ! And the same for other European countries as per the agenda of “Mrs. Specter from Sweden”, in accordance with the “Kalergi Plan”. Feel free to google what’s in quotes so you know what’s planned for you. And you want to know why they orchestrate false flag mass murders to further the agenda of gun confiscation ? These people are TRAITORS !

@Chaplin Purpua, My 5 USC 7311 is about going on strike not politicians failing to follow their oath.

Holy Cow Batman they waited for the last minute. Who Robin, The Right or The Left? Get a Grip both sides Do It. Maybe we need to start calling everyone’s BS including our own??? The Left and Right both suck air. Become an Independent and have A Free Mind. Don’t walk Lock Step with any party, ever, Period. It is sort of like the parent party that tells you what to think, do, and say. Not In My Life Time, and I have been voting for 52 years, yet never have voted a straight ticket. Free Your Mind.

What people do not want to understand , the 2nd amendment is for protection , from the government , so that the people can basically live free and not become servants of the government. Also the people are the ones to help defend our country from enemies within and without . As it is being seen every day the 2nd amendment is not the only right being attacked . Our freedom of speech , religion and others are under attack . Basically the 2nd amendment is the most important , for without it you would lose all your other rights… Read more »

NJ & America-Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying: “The beauty of the 2nd Amendment, is that it’s not really needed; until THEY try to take it away”. Seems like we’ve (collectively, as Americans), reached that point!

Why can’t the federal government protect the Constitutional rights of its citizens in New Jersey?

Probably because the Federal Government is (maybe, just maybe) complicit…? Power loves the weak and helpless.

A2757 makes no sense since a private pistol sale requires a purchase permit requiring a background check. So this legislation would require a background check on a background check.

These Anti-Constitutional CONTROL FREAKS are up to their old game/agenda of “LET’S DISARM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE”.
We want to control what they:
think,
FEEL,
act,
live,
drive,
eat,
travel,
etc.
This COMMON SENSE – – – – – MADNESS – – – – MUST BE STOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The SCOTUS silence has in itself been an infringement on the 2nd amendment. Are they not here to defend ALL parts of the constitution? The flaws in this law are so numerous and dangerous that I wouldn’t know where to begin in addressing them such as a smart gn sold to a ignorant person doesn’t change any outcome.

We will fight and protest until we are blue in the face and ultimately lose. People believe idiots like Piers Morgan who says eliminating the right to own guns makes England safer when in fact the violent crime rate in England is almost twice that of the US. And fully 5% of the murders occurring in England occur with illegally obtained guns. Less than 10 per year occur with legally obtained guns. The problem is not whether the facts support gun ownership, they do. The problem is that the Democrats in office and the anti-gunners have no ethics whatsoever. I… Read more »

you are right.
and as one who knows as others do why we the people were given the 2ND AMENDMENT, our GOD GIVEN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS CAN’T BE TAKEN AWAY UNLESS WE ALLOW THEM TO BE.
so ACTION has to come SOONER RATHER THAN LATER, because those ENEMIES OF WE THE PEOPLE ARE NOW EMBOLDENED WILL NOT STOP, UNTIL STOPPED DEAD.
