New Jersey Assembly Committee to Consider Gun Ban Bill!

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Bill is an Attack on Sportsmen, Collectors, and Target Shooters!

On Thursday morning, June 12, the New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider legislation that would ban the purchase, transfer, or inheritance of many popular hunting guns, historical American firearms, and large bore target firearms, based on alleged public safety concerns.  The bill would ban many rifles with a bore diameter larger than .50 caliber, including many modern and antique hunting and target firearms.

Touted as a ban on .50 caliber and larger firearms,
A2116 assaults New Jersey sportsmen by banning dozens of models of popular hunting guns, including traditional .50 caliber muzzle loaders with synthetic stocks, fiber optic sights, or scopes in lieu of sights. Such guns with sights not actually made of iron are also in question due to A2116’s unclear wording.

A2116, sponsored by
Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-15), also bans hundreds of historical American firearms and replicas, including those from the Revolutionary War and Civil War eras.  A2116 is a slap in the face to collectors, historians, and the patriots who used these firearms to win the very freedoms this legislation now seeks to take away.

A2116 also wrongly demonizes the .50 BMG rifle, which is not used in criminal activity, but which is regularly used by law-abiding citizens for precision target shooting, competition, and collection.  The legislation makes the fundamental mistake of banning guns based on the size of the barrel rather than punishing criminal behavior.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee IMMEDIATELY by email, phone, and/or fax and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE A2116!
