Senate Bill 2810, introduced by State Senator Nicholas Scutari (D-22), would make it a crime to sell or give an imitation firearm (toy gun) to anyone under the age of 18. An imitation firearm is describe as an “object or device that is reasonably capable of being mistaken for a firearm.”
S2810 is yet another attempt in New Jersey to divert focus away from real criminal behavior, this time focusing on retailers that sell toys.
This legislation has been assigned to the State Senate Committee on Law and Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs. Please contact the members of this committee and ask them to defeat this ridiculous bill that attacks legitimate retailers instead of focusing on the criminals that use firearms, real and imitation, to commit crimes in New Jersey.
State Senate Committee on Law and Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs:
State Senator John Girgenti (D-35), Chairman
State Senator Paul Sarlo (D-36), Vice-Chairman
State Senator Anthony Bucco (R-25)
State Senator Peter Inverso (R-14)
State Senator Nicholas Sacco (D-32)
