New Jersey: Redundant Gun Bill Expands Anti-Gun Overreach with Committee Amendments

New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)- On Monday, September 17th, 2018, the New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee was ready with last-minute, unpublished amendments to A3129 making sweeping additions to the legislation to ban possession of so-called “covert” guns, “undetectable” non-metal guns, 3D printed guns, and other imaginary threats whose manufacture is already illegal in New Jersey without a NJ firearms manufacturer’s license.

The changes also ban first-amendment-protected distribution of certain electronic files for 3D printers without a manufacturer’s license.

The amended version of the bill was still unavailable on the NJ legislature website at the time this alert was released. The bill’s original redundant provisions prohibiting the acquisition of parts to manufacture unserialized firearms without a manufacturer’s license remain intact.

The amended legislation focuses on imaginary threats and ignores the fact that criminals pay no attention to firearms regulations and acquire their firearms illegally. By continually demonizing the “tool du jour,” instead of severely punishing the criminal misuse of guns, lawmakers reveal an obsession with restricting law-abiding citizens – who are not the problem to begin with.

The legislation could be enacted into law as soon as next week. Full voting sessions are scheduled in both the Assembly and the Senate for Thursday, September 27. The Senate, which passed its own unamended version of this legislation in June (S2465), can adopt yesterday’s changes during the voting session.

Please contact every state legislator and tell them to vote no on A3129 / S2465. The legislation focuses on imaginary threats instead of severely punishing criminal misuse of firearms. Criminals will ignore it and continue to get their firearms illegally. The only ones affected are law-abiding citizens, who are not the problem to begin with.

This is what happens when you have idiots running the government that just don’t know what the hell that they’re talking about. And just hate guns. Because it seem that no matter how many gun laws are passed the ones that are affected ARE THE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, AND NOT THE BAD GUYS THAT THESE IDIOTS THINK WILL OBEY THEIR DAMN LAWS. And they’re idiots to think this way. Right now there are some 22,000 gun laws on the books nation wide and some of them ARE EVEN DUPLACATE ONES AS WELL. And they are not being enforced by some… Read more »

The 2A means nothing anymore what freedom will be next if they take our guns. The Japanese said during WWW2 they did not attack the Mainland USA because there would be a gun behind every blade of grass, Now ask yourself why do they want our guns?

Either the people who elected these fools were fed a ton of B.S about firearms OR they truely are STUPID. There are many people ,living in N.J. , who had a generation or two wiped OUT because of ELECTED office holders who said , we willmake the streets safer if you reg. your firearms. DO YOU REMEMBER????????.

Unfixable stupidity yes, as well as immigration and standard East Coast elitist liberal mentality, of which is the minority influencing and demanding control of the broader state. Parts of my family live there, been there once, beautiful expanses of untouched Pine Barrons and wilderness with anti-American, leftists permitting urban cesspools like Beyone and Jersey City where the liberal power elite sit and all their wanna-be followers who dream of being “just like Europe” – some of the most patriotic and conservative Americans being ruled and controlled by Leftist trash. Strange pace indeed, death before moving there ever!

Another battlefront. PEOPLE, if you have just read this article and you are doing absolutely nothing about it you are a bigger part of the problem then the legislators!

Put on your big-boy pants and spread this article’smessage far and wide then start removing those jackasses you have in your legislative branch!

How dare you allow this to happen! I had many relatives fighting in New Jersey, New York and all the surrounding burgs for your freedom and liberty, and THIS is how you repay their sacrifice by complacency and malingering? MAINTAIN YOUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS OR REMOVE THEM FROM OFFICE!

Long ago I stopped notifying my representatives. They are deaf to common sense. The replies are the usual boiler plate non responses with a request for a donation.
Now we have a progressive governor who will ban almost anything or tax it…… I’m surprised he hasn’t suggested legalizing prostitution yet….. as a source of revenue.
It took close to 2 months to obtain a pistol purchase permit and ammo is already bought with an ID card and the purchase logged buy the seller.
I hope that one day a legal response deals with the …..shall not be infringed…….issue.

Amen Wingman!

“I hope that one day a legal response deals with the …..shall not be infringed…….issue.”

When it comes down to it, I think it will have to be more of a Lexington-Concord type of response.
