New Jersey Stops Firearms Transfers!

NJ once again showing wanton disregard for its citizen's rights.

Fairfax, VA -(Ammoland.com)- At a time when uncertainty about social order has prompted a large number of Americans to exercise their Second Amendment right to self-defense, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has made it impossible for Garden Staters to do so.

On March 21, the New Jersey State Police issued the following message to Federal Firearms Licensees.

On Saturday March 21, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy announced he is putting New Jersey in lockdown to combat the spread of coronavirus. Per Executive Order 107, he is ordering the residents of New Jersey to stay home, directing all non-essential retail businesses closed to the public. At this time, the order includes New Jersey Firearms State Licensed Dealers. The New Jersey State Police NICS Unit is directing the vendor of the NICS Online Application (NICUSA) to turn off the NICS Online Services for submitting NICS transactions by eliminating the “Request Form” button, effective 9:00pm EST, Saturday, March 21, 2020. You will still have the ability to view the message board and the status of previously submitted transactions. This “Request Form” feature will remain off until further order by Governor Murphy.

New Jersey is a Full Point of Contact state for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. This means that all firearm background checks conducted in New Jersey are performed by the New Jersey State Police, who access the federal government's criminal history databases. In the majority of states, firearm background checks are performed by the FBI directly.

New Jersey's actions are an unacceptable deprivation of Second Amendment rights at a time when residents are concerned for the safety of themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.

NRA is currently pursuing all legal options to halt the New Jersey Government's unconstitutional actions and secure the Second Amendment rights of Garden State residents.

It is now the People’s Republic of New Jersey and should be encouraged to secede.

This Governor is now wallowing in the intoxicating influences of power, and once he has all his gun restrictions in place, whereby using the pandemic as the catalysis he needs to fuel it, will then find a way to make them permanent. I guarantee his office is working on this as we speak, and that what you see before you now, is just another small step in his giant plan to get it from here to there.

Governor, please explain how denying the citizens of your state the ability to defend themselves is in the public interest.
