New Jersey: Assembly Judiciary Committee Targets Gun Owners With Even More Gun Bills Monday

New Jersey: Assembly Judiciary Committee Targets Gun Owners With Even More Gun Bills Monday

On Monday, December 13th, the Assembly Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear six anti-gun bills, which do little more than double down on more failed New Jersey gun laws.  New Jersey has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, and rather than crack down on criminals, the Majority party is fixated on targeting the state’s law-abiding gun owners.  While politicians pander to their Progressive base in Trenton, little changes on the streets.  Until these crime-plagued communities see these bills for what they are, nothing will change.  There is not a single bill on the docket that calls for tougher policing or enforcement of the laws already on the books, just more punitive gun control schemes. 

Another indication that these bills are nothing more than a political stunt is the fact they are trying to do this in a “lame duck” session, during the holidays, and during COVID closures, when they think nobody will be paying attention and nobody will resist.  As a result, these bills are rushed, poorly written and conceptually flawed.  The Senate actually scrapped their hearing on two gun bills originally scheduled for Thursday, December 8th, after critical analysis and communication from NRA members exposed fatal flaws.  Undaunted, the Assembly is forging ahead with those two bills and four more!

The committee has been scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Monday, and the agenda will include the following bills:

A.1280/S.103 bans firearms .50 Caliber and greater.
A.1292/S.1481 requires registration of handgun ammunition.
A.3686/S.372 requires new residents to register firearms brought into the state. 
A.5030/S.2169 requires mandatory training to get an FID card.  Renewable every four years.
A.5647/S.3757 requires mandatory storage of firearms and renders self-defense obsolete.
A.5787/S.3826 requires all new handguns to be equipped with microstamping.  This is nothing more than a clever way to block the future sale of traditional handguns. 

NRA members and gun owners answered the call this week by contacting their Senators, and it made a difference!   We are asking that you do the same today and contact your Assembly members. 

Your immediate action is needed!  Please contact your Assembly members and respectfully ask that they oppose any and all new gun control, especially these six Assembly bills scheduled for Monday.
