New Jersey: Contact Committee Members in Opposition to Gun Control Package

The Assembly Judiciary Committee has now scheduled a hearing on Wednesday, February 28, at 11:00 a.m. in Room 11 of the State House Annex, fourth floor.  Why so little notice?  They know it’s important that you attend, and they simply don’t want that to happen.  You can bet that their gun control colleagues had plenty of time to make plans to attend and will try to stack the room.  As always, it’s important that you call and email your legislators, but NRA-ILA and ANJPRC, the official NRA state association, is also encouraging gun owners to attend and make a strong statement.

The following bills are scheduled to be considered:

A2761 Magazine Ban: Reduces maximum capacity of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds.
A2759 Ammo Ban: Prohibits possession of so-called “armor piercing ammunition.”
A2758 Removes right to carry: Codifies regulations defining justifiable need to carry handgun.
A2757 Bans private transfers by requires dealer background checks for all private gun sales. A1016 Smart Guns: Establishes commission to approve smart guns; requires firearm retailers to sell smart guns.
A1217 Authorizes “gun violence restraining orders” which would lead to the seizure of firearms in situations where only an allegation has occurred without any conviction.
A1181 Requires firearms seizure when health "professionals" think someone poses risk.
