NJ Tyrant & Legislator Loretta Weinberg’s Newest Bill Bans Travel to Free States

Opinion

Gun Banning New Jersey Sen Loretta Weinberg D
Gun Banning New Jersey Sen Loretta Weinberg D

New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- Vociferously anti-gun NJ Legislator and rampant egomaniac Loretta Weinberg has exposed just how deeply her willful ignorance and hatred for guns and gun owners goes with a newly proposed bill.

Weinberg has introduced a Bill S2402 that prohibits any and all State-sponsored travel to 37 States that do not currently require firearms purchasers or owners to obtain a permission slip or ID card from the State.

Here’s the relevant language

“a State agency shall not permit a State officer or employee, special State officer or employee, or member of the Legislature to engage in any travel to be paid, in whole or in part, out of State funds, or to be otherwise sponsored by the State, to any state of the United States if that state has not enacted a permit to purchase firearms law. This prohibition shall also apply to any organization that receives aid from the State.”

You read right Loretta Weinberg”s latest bill would prevent state employees or organization funded by the state to travel to other states that respect the right to keep and bear arms.  Dose this mean that NJ Democrat Senator Corry Booker and Bob Menendez would be prevented from Going to Washington?

Weinberg is famously known for her animosity to the Constitution, Bill of Rights and utter contempt for her Oath of Office, once publicly claiming that anything the NJ Legislature decides to enact is defacto Constitutional until a Court says otherwise. And another hot-mic slip where she was caught calling for gun confiscation.

Weinberg believes she has the unilateral authority to arrogantly demand that the overwhelming majority of the Country submit to her will and ideology. It is shocking to see the lengths she is willing to go to take away your freedoms.

This proposal is one step removed from requiring that Citizens receive permission from the State before crossing the border. Something that Weinberg should be intimately familiar with, as it was the standing policy of East Germany for over 60 years.

For many years, New Jersey has been rightly ridiculed as “New Germany” in many quarters, as they seem hellbent on emulating the worst of that countries repressive and deadly communist ideology. Many others dismissed such comparisons as nothing more than over the top hyperbole by a small minority of disgruntled residents, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

On the willful ignorance front, Weinberg is apparently utterly clueless of the fact that multiple Court rulings that have stood for decades prohibit the licensing of a right

Weinberg and her defenders will, of course, exclaim that since NJ’s (or States like MD, HI, and others ) licensing schemes have not yet been struck down, that, of course, means they are Constitutional. Nothing could be further from the truth. The simple fact that these schemes survive to this date means nothing other than the Supreme Court has yet to rule on them. Remember, Washington DC’s ban on handgun possession has enacted in 1976 and wasn't struck down as Un-Constitutional until 2008.

Weinberg needs to be reminded of her place in no uncertain terms. But don't look to the voters of NJ, particularly those in her district that are steadfast supporters of whatever her next freedom crushing idea will be.

That means until a Court puts her in her place, she needs to be exposed and pay the price for her actions. Two can play this game after all. There is nothing preventing Citizens in the 37 States she is targeting from demanding their Legislators send a very strongly worded letter to Ms. Weinberg explaining they will not submit to her outrageous demands and making it clear they will take appropriate reciprocal action against NJ if this bill becomes law.

Weinberg has made it abundantly clear she will never stop on her own, so she must be stopped. And if she cant be voted out of office, then her dictator-like mindset will and should cost the State she represents.

This has worked well in the past. Weinberg is the one responsible for NJ’s draconian “Smart Gun Mandate” which has famously blown up in her face. That model can be modified and used to similar effect with regards to this bill.

ErSwnn: Having done so myself, I can understand people packing off to other locales. I gave up on N.Y.C. myself in 1967, having done what I could, including testifying at the dog and pony show that passed for City Council hearings, and speaking with my then City Council Person. As to people being unaware of such efforts as they might make, did they sleep through JHS or HS Civics classes? That said, note the following that took place at a general membership meeting of a gun club I have long been a member of. The membership were fully occupied complaining… Read more »

Citizen apathy has been with us since time immemorial. Even our Founders experienced this problem, which gives rise to the premise of the III% folks today. The sad FACT is that most people are lazy or easily distracted by the bright and shiny things in their lives and can’t be bothered to get up off their collective butts and work to effect change. On the bright side, this proclivity of human nature is baked into the process of political discourse, hence the rule followed by smart politicos to assume that every card, letter or email represents 15-ish other voters who… Read more »

Such changes as are visible will be in one direction only, that bring the worsening of the situation regarding individual rights, until N.J. voters opt to clean house, action that they appear unable or unwilling, perhaps both, to undertake..

At this point many of them are unaware of the problem and have no idea they can fix it with the vote. That slippery slope of eroding rights? NJ is a cautionary tale.

Conservatism isn’t meant to be governance by theocratic tenets, something it’s become to many, but how we approach our Constitution and address issues. When we lose sight of that base we lose everything. Being a constitutional conservative I have grave concerns on our current directions….from both sides.

This is hilarious. I wonder if she realizes what will happen if some one commits a crime in New Jersey and gets across the border to one of the 37 free states? If some one say murders a police officer with a stolen gun and gets up to New Hampshire, New Jersey will not be able to extradite him.. They can’t send an ADA to file for the Extradition in the free states courts and they can’t pay to have him returned to New Jersey. Liberalism really is a mental illness.

@Fred….Either this woman is bucking for the Kalergi Plan Award, or she deserves our pity because her Alzheimer’s is so far advanced that it causes her to make a fool of herself in front of the voting public. I am inclined to think it is the former since she was caught with an open microphone saying “confiscate, confiscate, confiscate”.

Criminal Travel Protection… Steal a car or some other state criminal law violation such as murder and flee to a FREE State. NJ won’t be able to send two cops or even hired private agents to extradite. If I was a criminal I’d think this was a great idea. Don’t let cops travel.
So not only do criminals like the disarmed victims in NJ, they will love the travel restriction.

The people of NJ have been under the influence of anti-gun rhetoric for so long that they no longer have any concept of the right they are being denied. Then along comes a candidate who claims “I will make you safer!” by promising “common sense gun control laws”. That person is elected and goes on to make a law prohibiting a type of holster and the voters think they are safer. The cycle repeats itself to more effect each election.

@ErSwnn, The Anti-Second Amendment Civil Rights crowd have successfully covered up the fact that each of our Rights are a limit on governmental power. Diminishing the Right is expanding governmental power. Increasing the scope of Rights is reducing governmental power.

No stat can restrict travel to other states, nor can one state impose their requriements on any other state.

Sounds more and more, as if New Jersey is patterning itself after the old East German state, and current North Korea state, with all its restrictive laws and regulations. For the life of me, I don’t understand how or why anyone would choose to (or continue to) live there. Given the chance of violating their myriad anti-freedom, anti-constitution, anti-liberty laws, I wouldn’t risk even a short visit. My brother lives in California and I continually ask him why he chooses to live in such a repressive place. His justification is the pleasant weather and cultural attractions.

With the advent of REAL ID coming in 2020, we are not too far off from being required to show ID for state to state travel. Without REAL ID you can not fly (started January 2018) or enter any federal building nor military installation. Think about it, the Post Office is a federal building, they are exempt for now, but for how long?
