New Jersey Committee Taking Up Gun Ban Legislation!

Tuesday, May 8, 2007

Please contact the members of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee Today!

 

On Thursday, May 10, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider gun ban legislation that would further infringe on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms in New Jersey.

 

A3998, sponsored by Assemblymen Reed Gusciora (D-15), Michael Panter (D-12), and Robert Gordon (D-38), would ban the possession of all .50 BMG rifles by declaring such items to be a “destructive device.”  It also would prohibit the private ownership of all .50 caliber in-line muzzleloader rifles, or any antique muzzleloader over .60 caliber.

 

A3494, sponsored by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (D-6) and Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-18), would drastically raises all firearm license and permit fees and would allow the Superintendent of State Police the discretion to annually reconsider fees for a manufacturer or dealer license, a carry permit, the firearms purchase I.D. (FID), and the pistol purchase permits.

 

Please email, call, or fax the members of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee today, as well as your own Assemblyman or Assemblywoman, and urge them to oppose A3998 and A3494.
