New Jersey Court Sides Against “One-Gun-A-Month” But Fight is Far from Over!

Monday, September 29, 2008

Respectfully Urge Your State Senator to Oppose S1774!

The New Jersey Appellate Division has upheld a ruling by a lower court prohibiting Jersey City and other localities from passing firearms purchase and sale regulations that conflict with state law. In 2006 the Jersey City Council passed an illegal ordinance that prohibited the sale or purchase of more than one handgun within a thirty-day period, which was struck down by a New Jersey Superior Court later that year. 

While this is a significant victory for New Jersey’s firearm owners, anti-gun advocates are now demanding passage of statewide legislation (
S1774) mandating that New Jersey citizens be prohibited from purchasing more than one-gun-a-month.  Your State Senator needs to hear from you today!

New Jersey gun owners are already among the most heavily regulated in the nation and must already submit to fingerprinting and intrusive criminal and mental health background investigations before being certified by the State to purchase handguns.  It often takes months for permits to be issued.  Further gun rationing on top of an already burdensome permit system is excessive and unreasonable regulation, impacting only honest gun owners. 

S1774 would do little to impact crime, because criminals do not purchase firearms from dealers and they do not submit to background investigations. S1774 treats law-abiding citizens like criminals simply for exercising their Constitutional right to own, purchase or sell firearms.

Please contact your State Senator IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge him or her to oppose S1774 and not arbitrarily limit your Second Amendment rights! Contact information for your State Senator can be found by clicking
