URGENT: Attend this Hearing in Trenton and Contact your state Lawmakers

 On Wednesday, February 13th, the New Jersey Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee will hear more than twenty extreme anti-gun bills.  These bills, which border on being some of the worst anti-gun legislation currently being considered in the United States, are attempts that will fail to prevent future crime.  Past attempts at similar legislation have proven that they do not prevent crime and only punish law-abiding gun owners.  If these bills pass through committee, they could be considered by the full Assembly as soon as this Thursday.  You must act now!

Detailed analysis of the bills to be heard on Wednesday can be found here.

The NRA-ILA and our state association, the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC), are calling for "all hands on deck."  Attend the committee hearing at 10:00 a.m. this Wednesday in the State House Annex, Committee Room 11, 4th Floor, Trenton.  Click here for information on buses and to register. 

We need a massive showing in Trenton to demonstrate to lawmakers that it is not acceptable to trample on your Second Amendment rights like Governor Cuomo and anti-gun legislators recently did in New York.  The Second Amendment is literally on life support in New Jersey.  If this anti-gun package is adopted, in addition to current state law, the constitutional rights of gun owners will virtually evaporate in the Garden State.

Please contact your state lawmakers and members of the State Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee.  Respectfully demand they oppose gun control schemes and instead focus on real solutions like improving the mental health system and school safety.  New Jersey already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country and history has proven that these laws have not stopped criminals and madmen.

  • Governor Andrew Cuomo Seizes Your Gun Rights Overnight with Secret Deals, Procedural Shortcuts and Midnight Votes in Albany

    Governor Andrew Cuomo, in stunningly brazen fashion, took a hatchet to gun rights in New York with lightning speed.  By cutting secret deals behind closed doors, eliminating public input and circumventing normal legislative processes, the Governor and state Senate passed sweeping anti-gun measures just before the stroke of midnight yesterday.  Within 24 hours, Cuomo had his new gun control laws.  Cuomo utilized a rarely-used executive trick, a "message of necessity" to bypass normal legislative procedures that are strictly followed on hundreds of bills each legislative session.  Late last night as the clock approached midnight, the public was introduced to S. 2230,a hastily drafted bill that includes bans on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and magazines, registration, and restrictions on ammunition purchases.  This bill was released to legislators a scant twenty minutes prior to the Senate vote and quickly passed without proper vetting, committee consideration and debate, as previously reported on here.
