Update on Looming Gun Ban Over Jersey City, New Jersey!

Friday, June 23, 2006



Please immediately email, call, or fax the Mayor and City Council of Jersey City to voice your opposition to two new anti-gun ordinances scheduled for a public hearing and council vote on June 28.  Please also attend the June 28 public hearing and make your voice heard! 

The new ordinances are replacements for ordinances that were defeated on June 14.  Although they have been rewritten in an attempt to counter objections raised about the defeated ordinances, the new ordinances are still unacceptable and must be defeated. 

Ordinance # 06-081 would ban affordable personal defense handguns by misleadingly labeling them as “Saturday night specials” and “junk guns.”  By banning affordable firearms, Jersey City is diminishing the self-defense rights of lower-income residents and discriminating against them. 

Ordinance # 06-082 would ban the purchase of more than one handgun per month, and would leave Jersey City residents unable to defend themselves if their firearm requires repair or is stolen within four weeks of purchase. 

In addition to impacting Jersey City’s lower income residents, these ordinances also violate New Jersey’s pre-emption law, which prohibits municipalities from regulating matters already addressed by the state.  Copies of the ordinances are available at www.anjrpc.org/DefendingYourRights/djco062206.htm. 

If you wish to speak at the hearing, please call the Jersey City Office of the City Clerk at (201) 547-5150 to be placed on the speaker’s list for the June 28 meeting. Speakers are selected in sign-up order. You will not be able to speak unless you sign up in advance.  If you don’t wish to speak, please attend anyway and show your support. 

The meeting will be held on June 28 at 6:00 p.m., at Jersey City Hall, 280 Grove Street, 2nd Floor, Jersey City, New Jersey 07302. 

If you are unable to attend, please call in opposition to the anti-gun ordinances by contacting Mayor Healy at (201) 547-5200 and the members of the Jersey City Council at (201) 547-5204.
