New Jersey Laws - Effective Confisication of Firearms

Recommended Posts

All of these bills passed on Monday the 16th


S102 (Magazine Ban / Gun Ban) Criminalizes possession of magazines that can hold more than ten rounds of ammunition. Turns 1 million law-abiding citizens into criminals with the stroke of a pen. No grandfathering of existing magazines. Unknown whether Assembly amendment exempting permanently blocked magazines will be adopted. Will be ignored by criminals and madmen. Makes no one safer. Interferes with ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves.

S2259 (No-Notice Suspension of Gun Rights) Unconstitutional suspension of Second Amendment rights and seizure of firearms with no due process in advance, based on unchallenged allegations. Fails to penalize those who abuse the process and fabricate allegations. Creates a slow, cumbersome run-into-court process not suitable for true emergencies, and potentially interferes with the currently-existing process to deal with true emergencies, which requires no court intervention and has already been established as constitutional.

S160 (Allows Suspension of Gun Rights by Unaccountable “Health Professionals”). Authorizes firearms seizure and suspension of Second Amendment rights when mental health “professionals” think someone poses risk. Allows marriage counselors, social workers and nurses to cause suspension of rights. Allows forfeiture of firearms without compensation to owner. Creates a slow, cumbersome, run-into-court process not suitable for true emergencies, and potentially interferes with the currently-existing process to deal with true emergencies, which requires no court intervention and has already been established as constitutional.

S2376 (Kills Self-Defense) – Cements NJ’s unconstitutional “justifiable need” carry permit standard into statute to prevent most law-abiding citizens from ever exercising the right to self-defense with a firearm outside the home. No one would be eligible for a NJ carry permit unless they had previously been attacked or received specific verifiable threats.

S2245 (Bans Ammunition That is Already Federally Banned). Bans ammunition that is already banned under federal law. Completely redundant with pre-existing law, makes no one safer, criminals will ignore, changes nothing -- a complete waste of legislative resources. Squanders an opportunity to severely punish the criminal misuse of ALL ammunition, not just one class of ammunition.

S2374 (Background Checks on Sales That Already Require Background Checks) Mandates background checks on private sales of firearms that already require background checks under state law. Redundant with existing law, makes no one safer, criminals will ignore, changes nothing – a complete waste of legislative resources.

S2465 (Criminalizes purchase of components to unlawfully manufacture untraceable firearms) Senate text not yet introduced.

I am thankful everyday that my family and I chose to reside in the Great State of TEXAS.  If it wasn't for family in the Mid Atlantic region, I would probably never go back.
