New Jersey: Latest Gimmick by Anti-Gun Politicians Is Simply More of The Same

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Just when you thought Trenton gun banners had run out of bad ideas, these attention starved politicians simply start recycling stuff that’s already outlawed in New Jersey.

On Monday, September 17st, 2018, the Assembly Judiciary Committee is meeting to consider A.3129.  This bill would make it a crime to acquire parts for the purpose of manufacturing an unserialized firearm.  The Senate passed the companion version of this bill (S.2465) with amendments earlier this spring.

Take Action Button

It’s already against the law to manufacture a firearm without a New Jersey manufacturer’s license.  And despite the rhetoric, prohibited persons cannot legally possess firearms regardless of whether they have to be assembled or they are the finished product.  Manufacturing unserialized firearms, or even serialized guns, was illegal before, it’s illegal now, and it will be illegal no matter what happens in Trenton next week.  However, this entire charade gives the appearance that they are “doing something.”

This isn’t the first time Trenton lawmakers have hustled redundant laws.  Only a few months ago, they were doing the same thing with “armor piercing bullets.” 

It is one thing that Trenton politicians waste their time and taxpayer funds on these types of bills, but what is really tragic is that they completely mislead the public into thinking these bills are going to do something to improve public safety.  After they spent the entire spring debating and passing gun bills, just two weeks ago, public officials were lamenting the recent rash of shootings in Paterson, NJ.  We all knew back in March that those gun bills didn’t make the streets safer, and they only punished law-abiding gun owners.  Now, the same politicians are back selling the same failed ideas and expecting a different result.

Please contact members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE A.3129 when it comes up for a vote.

    1. Insanity. n. mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior.

      Albert Einstein is broadly credited with exclaiming “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.

    2. Judge Kavanaugh will square this away when he is confirmed to SCOTUS. I suspect that with Judge Kavanaugh on the bench SCOTUS will start hearing one by one unconstitutional gun laws that have been passed in Calif, NY, and NJ.
      I also suspect that one by one these laws will be found contravening the second amendment and will be struck down. I think this is one reason why the dems are going ballistic on Kavanaugh.

    3. Text from the relevant section (Section 1j):

      “Purchasing firearm parts to manufacture untraceable firearm. In addition to any other penalty imposed under current law, a person who purchases separately or as a kit any combination of parts from which a firearm may be readily assembled with the purpose to manufacture an untraceable firearm is guilty of a crime of the third degree.”

      And the rub: How is a seller (B&M or internet retailer) to KNOW that the purchase of, say, an AR15 lower parts kit, is NOT being acquired to build out an 80% lower. How is the buyer to prove they are building out a legal stripped lower? This type of language, in effect, may cause all retailers to not sell any lower parts, at all, to residents of NJ.

    4. Hay people why not you try something new , to rid your state of these commies, try VOTING. You put them in office only YOU can take them OUT of office.

      1. @rich z, You correctly point out that only we can drain the legislative swamp, but are there the numbers in any given state? In many libtard states, the dead and illegal aliens put politicians in power. Are are there enough legitimate and living people to elect a not corrupted yet candidate?

    5. New Jersey, California, New York, etc., will continue to promulgate their unconstitutional laws and regulations until the ONLY persons remaining in these states will be politicians and crooks (sorry about repeating myself)!
