Please Continue to Contact Your Assembly Members!In response to your calls, faxes, and emails, the New Jersey Assembly delayed passage of A2116, legislation banning most firearms over .50 caliber. Anti-gun members of the Assembly amended the legislation in an attempt to divide gun owners and sportsmen by exempting some firearms while still banning others. Make no mistake: at the end of the day, A2116 is still a gun ban. It still would outlaw firearms based on bore diameter, not on any valid argument. A2116 could be considered by the full Assembly as soon as December.
However, no amount of tinkering can "fix" a gun ban and A2116 remains fundamentally flawed because instead of targeting criminals, it singles out law-abiding gun owners and punishes them by banning their guns.
Please continue to contact your Assembly Members and respectfully urge them to oppose A2116. Their contact information can be found by clicking here.
