New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee to Vote on Anti-Gun Legislation Tomorrow!

Wednesday, January 2, 2008

Please Contact the Members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee Today!

On Thursday, January 3, the New Jersey State Assembly Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on two bills that will further erode the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners in New Jersey.  It is critical that you contact the members of the Committee and respectfully urge them to amend or vote against both of these anti-gun bills.

A4620, introduced by State Assemblyman Louis Manzo (D-31), 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. 

A3035, sponsored by State Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-18), 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.

A4620 and A3035 are companion bills to legislation currently being voted on in the State Senate.  It is critical that A4640 and A3035 are defeated or, at the very least, amended to match the Senate versions.
