New Jersey Update On Gun Ban Legislation!

Friday, May 11, 2007

On Thursday, May 10, the New Jersey Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee decided to take no action on Assembly Bill 3494, sponsored by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (D-6) and Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-18).  A3494 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.


The committee also voted 4 to 2 to amend Assembly Bill 3998, sponsored by Assemblymen Reed Gusciora (D-15), Michael Panter (D-12), and Robert Gordon (D-38), which would ban the possession of all .50 BMG rifles by declaring such items to be a “destructive device.” 


Even though A3998 has been amended to exempt certain firearms from being banned, it is still a gun ban bill.  A3998 has been referred to another committee for further study and amending.


Please take a moment to thank Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblyman Nelson Albano for voting against A3998 and standing up for our Second Amendment rights.
