APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Anti-Gun Bills Looming Over New Jersey!

Friday, December 14, 2007

Please Contact the Senate Law and Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs Committee Today!

On Monday, December 17, at 10:00 a.m., the New Jersey Senate Law and Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs Committee is scheduled to consider three bills that impact law-abiding gun owners.  Please immediately contact the members of that committee and urge them to OPPOSE or AMEND the following legislation:

S2470 - This bill would criminalize the transfer of ammunition to anyone who does not have a valid New Jersey firearms ID card, handgun carry or purchase permit, or hunting license.  While intended to prevent criminals from obtaining ammunition, the legislation would only impact honest gun owners, since criminals are unlikely to purchase ammunition in New Jersey because of the mandatory reporting of all ammunition sales as required by state law.  This bill should be defeated or amended so as not to affect law-abiding citizens. Please urge the committee to oppose this legislation!

S2934 - This bill would make honest gun owners responsible for the acts of criminals if they fail to “immediately” report the theft or loss of a firearm that is later used in a crime.  Styled as legislation requiring the reporting of stolen or lost firearms, the legislation would hold victims of theft responsible for the acts of criminals.  Possible amendments to this bill are under consideration.  Please urge the committee to oppose or amend this bill.

S2431 - This bill is an overly broad attempt to address gang violence that could have unintended consequences for honest gun owners.  Among other things, it would criminalize and severely punish the mere possession of certain firearms, including registered handguns, even while engaged in lawful activities.  As originally drafted, the bill puts law-abiding gun owners at risk of a potential 10-year prison sentence and a $150,000 fine.  Please urge the committee to oppose or amend the bill to protect honest gun owners.
