NJ Democrats Pass Magazine & Gun Ban Despite Massive Protest from Residents

New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- In a fervor to exploit tragedy and advance a longstanding agenda to limit gun rights, a majority of Garden State lawmakers voted today to pass a package of gun bills that target the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of severely punishing criminals and madmen who misuse firearms.

“None of the bills passed today will make anyone safer,” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scot Bach. “Lawmakers have squandered an important opportunity to make our schools safer and prevent those with serious mental health issues from obtaining firearms in the first place.”

“Instead,” continued Bach, “they have enacted a series of measures limiting the ability of citizens to defend themselves, and enabling those hostile to gun rights to abuse legal process to harass gun owners. Law-abiding firearms owners are not the problem, and limiting their rights accomplishes nothing to advance safety.”

Once these bills are signed by the governor, which could come before the weekend, Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs plans on taking the fight to the courts, where we expect unconstitutional laws to be overturned, and lawmakers to be forced to respect the rights of law-abiding citizens.

Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs would like to thank the tens of thousands of gun owners who participated in our grassroots blitz leading up to today’s vote. We received several requests from legislators to “make it stop,” and some gun owners reported that there was an attempt to place a firewall on the legislative server in an effort to block messages in the last 24 hours. Based on the overwhelming volume of calls and emails sent, one thing is certain: lawmakers know with certainty that any effort to limit the gun rights of law-abiding citizens is going to be difficult and painful every step of the way, and they will pick their future battles very carefully.

Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs will be providing detailed analysis of the new laws and their impact on law-abiding gun owners in the coming days and weeks. Regarding the magazine ban, there is a 180-day implementation period within which to comply, so there is time for you to assess the best course of action to take with respect to your property. That time has the potential to be further extended in anticipated litigation.

Please forward this alert 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.

On June 8, 1967 they tried to sink the USS Liberty in international waters. On June 8, 2018 the international globalist lackeys voted to sink the LIBERTY that our founders gave us with the 2A. And they can go to hell. We will not comply with their illegal, unconstitutional laws. Molon Labe !


Once you vote them into power, they force their agenda on you. TOP priority of their agenda – CITIZEN DISARMAMENT!
NO amount of public sentiment could’ve stopped them from ramming these bills through.

(Or they must be considered COMPLICIT)

Larry B.

The SCOTUS “IS” complicit!! SCOTUS is, and for a long time now has been, MIA in its charge to intervene when tyranny has taken over one or both of the other two branches of government. SCOTUS has turned its back on the citizens of the Cradle Of Liberty Northeastern states of which New Jersey, the Crossroads of The American Revolution, and the first state to ratify the Bill Of Rights, is, and has been for a long time now IMPRISIONING its good citizens who innocently fall victim to the tyrants “gun control” dictates. Justice Neil Gorsuch eloquently made this point… Read more »


No. The People need to reign in this rouge unconstitutional political party NOW!
The courts do not honor the U.S. Constitution. The plain meaning of that document is manipulated, dissected, and maligned into whatever form a judge or judges wish it to mean. If you are waiting for SCOTUS to finish this, you are in for a big disappointment.



You reference what happened in a small southern town, a great many years ago. In addition to this fact, might I point out the following. The people involved, had seen combat, and had balls, something that seems to be lacking in the general public these days, having balls that is. I could perhaps add an additional point or two, but I believe that the above stated is sufficient.


Have you ever heard of the Athens, GA. revolt a.k.a. the 2nd Civil War? If not I suggest you check it out on line.
Perhaps it’s time (I personally believe it’s past time) to follow the example of those veterans in 1946.
Political corruption MUST be addressed – STOPPED.

Wild Bill

@Gray, well… go ahead, then. Have formation at your house, and see what happens. Sounds like a fine experiment.

Larry B.

That’s right, Wild Bill; you said it!! You know what will happen…..NOTHING. But then….maybe you and I are over looking what happened at the Bundy Ranch when Liberty “did” muster, and “did,” by the grace of God prevail. But lets not forget how those who did muster were later hunted down and thrown in gulag for a while until the ‘gummit’ satiated its need for its pound of flesh. There is a chance; but its a small chance. How many amongst us has the balls to take Robert Heinlein’s words literally when he wrote: “A slave cannot be freed, save… Read more »


So being an American in New Jersey ( a law abiding one) is now a crime, the scum and the illegal alien immigrant, and don’t forget the elected officials(cowards), are now the chosen ones the few who walk on water. To the free new Jersey Citizens YOU must take your state back anyway you can! Good Luck


I sure hope that someone in New Jersey has the balls to stand up against the TYRANNY in the Government that has no respect for the American Constitution. That is exactly why the constructions 2nd. Amendment was written the Way it was. We must fight for our Rights.


As I always called it… New Jerksey. Can’t stand going there even when doing so in my job.


The Garbage State just closed 47 Beaches. Too many turd floaters. Gov Murphy got to get out the pooper scoopers out to improve tourism. Lots of pizzas and tattoos to sell. Spend less time worrying about those high capacity “clips” that turn regular rifles into assault weapon automatic machine guns.
Cory Booker for President!


Members of the state lgislature, being elect d things, leave voting records behind themselves. If gun owners inNew Jersey don’t take action at the voting booth, they deserve the screwing they are getting.

Larry B.

Alan, the first part of your second sentence took place in New Jersey on Election Day this past November. ANJRPC and the NRA sang the mantra “that if NJ gun owners and hunters voted as a block” [now] Governor Phil Murphy would have lost handily to the Republican candidate Kim Guadagno who actively courted the 2A vote. The majority of the Elmer Fudds either voted wrong or stated home; so did non astute to the issue gun owners. THEY might now be getting what they deserve, but the rest of us surely aren’t!!


Larry B.

As was long ago noted, People usually get the sort of government they didn’t vote against. If you like, let me know, I will relate a sad tale to you, only if you so request though.


Ever hear of the “2nd Civil War” 1946? This happened in Athens, Ga.
Check it out. It’s past time to clean house of corrupt politicians.
BTW, not ONE of the protestors was arrested!

Eric S

That action happened in Athens, TN. Not GA. But nevertheless, it might come down to that all over again before too long. Here’s a link from Jews For the Preservation of Firearms Ownership: https://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/athens.htm
It’s unfortunate that most of the masses are so deceived by these Commies disguised as Dumbocrats they get voted into office and the the laws they enact are so difficult to repeal. They want nothing more than for the voting public to be lulled into complacency for them to wreak havoc on Our Constitution.

John Jameson

NJ Dumb-ocrats and RINOs pass anti-gun laws faster than they pass gas. Both stink worse than Bayonne!


You must be a garbage state expatriate like me. The Lefties built condos in Secaucus on top of the dumps. Now called Cancer Cove. Before NJ banned scary looking guns, I went there to shoot rats. Now people and fish are growing a third eye and grabbing guns.


So much for the ‘will of the People’ – tyranny by our ‘betters’ because they think they know what is best for us ‘little people’ (aka Citizens – at least supposedly). Will never again visit that commie locale again.

PHil Rodacy

When “laws” like this are overturned as being unconstitutional, the lawmakers responsible need to personally reimburse anyone who puts up money going to court to fight an illegal “law”. In addition, they need to pay a punitive fine for violating people’s rights. Maybe then this widespread nonsense will cease.

Donald L. Cline

It’s a little too late at that point. I recommend filing charges for Malfeasance and Perjury of their oaths of office. They are sworn or affirmed to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and that creates a legal presumption they know what it says and know they are bound by it. Malfeasance is a crime and Perjury is a crime. Find a supportive legal firm to advise you and then rip them a new one.


Donald L. Cline:

If this comment turns out to be a repeat, excuse me. That said, regarding your suggestion of charges being brought against legislators, the following questions come to mind.

1. What court might this case be brought?
2. Who would the prosecutor be, another New Jersey pol?

Donald L. Cline

1. State Court. Malfeasance and Perjury are both State crimes. 2. If you cannot find a criminal prosecutor you can trust, file a civil lawsuit and — if possible — go judge shopping for a Court with a law and order bent. I know you can find lawyers willing to make a name for themselves by taking down the power brokers. Regardless of the outcome, it will bring the issue front and center before the public. And if you lose, a whole lot of people who agree with the Constitution will be pissed and will be willing to try again.… Read more »


I heard that somebody called his office in Trenton and asked the lady who answered the phone if she knew what his shirt size was. When she said that she had no idea, the person said that they want to know specifically what his neck size was so they would know what size …well, you get the idea, don’t you ? But remember, only after a trial, a guilty verdict, a proper tar & feathering, and a nice rail ride down to the tree. None of this lynching business without due process, ya hear ? And let’s get the voting… Read more »

Donald L. Cline

It appears to me the unrepentant thugs passing this legislation should be prosecuted for Malfeasances of office and Perjury of their oaths of office. They are sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and that creates a legal presumption they know what it says and know they are bound by it. Who is going to file criminal and civil charges against them? Time to stand up and be counted if you don’t want this situation to devolve into a knock-down-drag-out civil war.


Best of luck with the prosecution you recommend. Who would be the prosecutors, I wonder.

Jim M

Blatant TYRANNY by TYRANTS!!! Only one fix for that.

Speed Bump

I moved from Trenton to San Antonio, Texas in 2011. Although I’m ashamed to admit it to my friends, I try to keep things quiet about me being from New Jersey. I never realized the chain that was around my neck while living and growing up in Jersey. Here in Texas, we live a  life of freedom as the Constitution intended, and I will stand by the side of my Texas Brothers in defending our way of life to the death! Being a proud and legal gun owner has opened my eyes to these facts. IT’S NOT THE GUNS, IT’S… Read more »


Your accent and speech patterns might well be a give away.


Now! Watch for California too follow suite! Maybe we will get lucky and both states will each have an earthquake and fall in the Atlantic & Pacific Oceans. No big loss either way.


And yet, the Supreme Court turns a blind eye to these constitutional transgressions. We no loner live in an America that the Founders passed on to us and was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of brave men and women. Things are not looking good for the future of this Republic.


For decades we have jumped through countless hoops and asked the state nicely to “please ALLOW us to exercise the smallest fraction of our civil rights.” We have passed countless criminal background checks and purchased legal property in good faith. We have tolerated (to our great shame) mass incarceration of innocents. Now the scum are AGAIN widening the scope of their infrigements and promising that a million more will go to jail. They have crossed the final line. We must hold them to full account for their crimes against our state and innocent fellow citizens. The corrupt, criminal and vile… Read more »

Once lived in NJ. I no longer even recognize that state. Quietly, over the years, the Marxists have been sneaking in their people day by day. The “get out and vote” is no longer in effect. Newark and a few other cities have taken over with their welfare ‘the gov will take care of you’ ideals, and too many people believe that. There is only one solution left, and that was shown 242y ears ago. May God help us all.


It is also time for everyone to boycott the beaches and any thing that adds to their economy. That would also include hunting and buying products produced in the State of New jersey. We need to hit them were it hurts the most. In their pocket books.


Heh. It’s New Jersey. Gun owners don’t have a say because they aren’t buying legislators the way Bloomberg and his gang do. Don’t kid yourselves, it’s 100% about money and zero about safety, etc.

Big lou

It is obvious that all these elections are rigged. So voting is not going to work. Look at California Diane Feinstein was just voted back in office and everyone knows that no one voted for her. We all know that all these laws are unconstitutional and do Nothing to stop criminals. Who works for whom? These people are voted into office to work for us but yet they push their own agenda on us. It is time for these people to be “taken” out of office and to get rid of this system it just doesn’t work. People are corrupt… Read more »


“Don’t you know that high capacity clips turn ordinary rifles into automatic assault weapons?” VOTE THE MORONS OUT OF OFFICE. More insanity to come as the dems voted overwhelmingly for pervert crook Menendez.
NJ residents, grab your ankles and smile.

Clark Kent

‘Everyone knows’ that no one voted for Diane Feinstein? Since when? Prove it. The TRUE problem is that PLENTY of people legitimately voted for her. Grow up.


Your comment sounds similar to what was heard years ago, when Rockefeller defeated Harriman for the governor’s office in New York. Nobody voted for Rockefeller, yet he won by the largest purity in the history of the state up to that time.


N.J. WILL become a Crooks haven . They don’t follow the law .The whole state is now a GUN FREE ZONE.People you got what you VOTED FOR. GOOD LUCK.


Umm, noo joisee has been a haven for crooks for a lot longer than I have been alive – the noo yawk city crooks gotta live somewhere after all!


The NJ legislature just showed tax paying law biding legal where they stand.!!! Behind the illegal aliens drug dealers <welfare frauds common thugs <street gangs , and under the feet of the politicans who laugh at us knowing they are above worrying about any repercussions .I would like to welcome the rest of my fellow used to be law biding gun owners,to their new title .NEW JERSY FELLONY POSSESION . Our politions want legal drugs a santurary state , and cater to the elite politically connected ! I hope we wake up !this is only the beginning ,the next screwjob… Read more »


While I hate the idea of gun owners and conservatives lining up against law enforcement (who are natural allies) and creating the leftists biggest wet dream of their opposition killing each other off.. If that’s what it’s going to take I just hope that :(i) their aim is sure, and; (ii) the media doesn’t cover up the beginnings of the 2nd American Revolution.


Law enforcement has no duty to obey or enforce unconstitutional laws passed by TRAITORS. If they do choose to, then they become traitors also. The same goes for prosecutors and judges. They should all be contacting Murphys office now telling him that he better not sign the laws because they will not enforce them, and that he will have to go door to door himself, and to watch out for the flying lead and the hot pokers people will be wanting to insert into his….


LMAO….vote or move

Matt in Oklahoma

Wheres all the badA 3%ers!?!


If NJ residents are too lazy to take a stand and get out and vote, they can’t complain about having their rights taken away. Their choices are vote people in that will protect their rights or move out of the state before a law is passed preventing them to do so.

A former NJ resident that made the right choice.


Because of the Supremacy Clause put in the Constitution by our founders, all of these laws are null and void. All these legislators did was expose themselves as TRAITORS. No one has any duty to obey or enforce their laws. Now, we have to deal with these traitors. We now know very well who they are. Any one who attempts to enforce these illegal laws will also mark themselves as a TRAITOR. And that goes for any prosecutor or judge also. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could muster a million person open carry march to pass by every one… Read more »


Instead of reading sports news get yourself a copy of ” unintended consequences ” by John Ross and read it. It may be a novel but has enough real history to so you where the country is headed. Reviews show that if you are for the second amendment it is a great book. If you are a progressive lib it should be banned.


Amen to that, and your comment. That book is ALWAYS on my coffee table for the last 15yrs or so!
This man is very wise, and to read this book would do a lot of you folks who haven’t read it yet a lot of good… On both sides of the fence 😉 Thank you!!

Sam W.

I thought we declared Independence from Britain in 1776. Now thre are states returning to British rule.


Those pushing and or signing it should be drug out of their homes or offices and hung in public. THIS is what should befall ALL who criminalize or disarm law abiding AMERICAN CITIZENS !


All NJ law abiding gun owners should get out of the democommunist state and move to a conservative state. When enough people (and money) move and crime rate soars they will wake up. Sometimes you can’t fix STUPID!!

Herb T

It would seem that most NJ voters are in favor of higher taxes, welfare for illegals, punishing law-abiding citizens, and giving the advantage to criminals. Otherwise, they would not vote for a single democrat. Maybe they should change the name from Garden State to Socialist State or Sxxt-hole State.

Leo Smith

Democrats and Gun Control. When will the Nazi Menace be destroyed???


Well this doesn’t seem to surprise me, NJ is trying to be the Commiefornia of the east coast, and I think they honestly have surpassed them with there stupidity. But what does anyone expect from the liberal progressive left which is trying to create there utopia. The reality is they have just made things even harder for the law abiding by literally turning any resident in the state with a 15 round magazine into a criminal. Pretty soon y’all are just going to be able to purchase revolvers at the rate these idiots are going. NJ will never learn, because… Read more »

Michael Twidle

Let’s see how many politicians lose their job over this, a sure bet will be none. If this doesn’t wake-up NJ gun owners to get out and vote for pro 2nd politicians nothing will.

Pistol Pete

if you don’t like what your elected official’s do and the bills they pass vote them out.
Stop vote for a welfare check and free stuff you see what that has gotten you ( stupid )


“….despite massive protests from residents.”

Not surprising. Those in government have long ceased heeding the righteous efforts of Patriots to maintain and advance Liberty & Freedom. Until a movement organizes and unites within this disintegrating republic, to terminate with prejudice the communists entrenched within, tyranny will continue. It will in fact, increase.

Sometimes….violence is the answer.

Ansel Hazen

“We received several requests from legislators to “make it stop,” and some gun owners reported that there was an attempt to place a firewall on the legislative server in an effort to block messages in the last 24 hours.”

Actively considering shutting the door on comments from their constituency. If this doesn’t tell every law abiding RESPONSIBLE gun owner that your legislators aren’t going to listen to you I don’t know what will.


J Davids

Ansel, it can be solved at the ballot box if the people who will really represent the will of their constituents can generate enough interest to get voted in and then still represent the people who voted them in! This is how it has worked in the past and can work now. We as a populace have to choose the right person and that person had better be of high moral character….. wait i see a problem here…. are there any of those people left????


Yes, Ansel, by the time it gets to the ballot box, it may be too late. We must use all means to let our local, state, and federal representatives know where we stand.

I write my representatives all the time, and attend the local county commissioners meetings. We can’t let only the voices of David Hogg, et al, be heard. The law abiding majority will be heard. I swore an oath to defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, including the under-aged piss ants. I have never been relieved of my duty.
