New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- Today is Day 6 of ANJRPC’s one-million-gun-owner grassroots blitz against pending magazine ban legislation which will likely be voted on in both houses of the New Jersey legislature in final amended versions on Thursday, June 7th. The bill would then move to the Governor’s desk on Friday, June 8.
Beginning today, please start calling legislators in addition to emailing them. Click here for the legislative contact list. Start with your own two Assembly Members and State Senator, and then call at least 7 more legislators every day this week through the morning of Thursday, June 7. Tell them “Please vote NO! on S102 and A2761 magazine ban, or add grandfathering of existing magazines. Don’t turn me into a criminal, and don’t make me a victim!”
Please also continue to email every member of the legislature at least once every single day between today and the morning of June 7, demanding that pending magazine ban legislation be defeated or that real grandfathering be added. Click here for the list of every email address of every legislator in New Jersey. Copy and paste that list into your email program. ANJRPC will be suggesting different messages for you to send daily.
Today’s Suggested Email Message:
The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly held that police owe no legal duty to protect individual citizens from harm. That means I am on my own in an emergency, and I have no recourse if the police show up after an emergency, or never show up at all.
S102 and A2761 (firearms magazine ban) limit my ability to defend myself in an emergency. The same government that abandons its legal duty to protect me shouldn’t also limit my ability to protect MYSELF (it really should be empowering me instead). Don’t make me a victim! Vote NO on S102 or A2761, or amend to add meaningful grandfathering of existing magazines.

“Held” Mental Health Bill Now Released For Full Vote Thursday
Last week, S2259 – so-called “extreme risk protection order” legislation – was held in Senate committee so it could be further amended. Yesterday (June 4), the bill was amended in the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and released for a full floor Senate vote this coming Thursday, June 7.
Even as amended, the bill provides for the unconstitutional suspension of Second Amendment rights and seizure of firearms with no advance due process. It also fails to contain a specific provision severely penalizing those who fabricate allegations simply to harass those with whom they disagree. ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach slammed the legislation in testimony at yesterday’s hearing. Note: the newly amended version of the bill was not available on the legislative website when this alert was released.
Please also continue to take action on all of the anti-gun bills moving through the legislature, including S2259. Click here to access the NRA-ILA “take action” link, where you can easily contact legislators with a few mouse clicks.
