Today, the New Jersey Law and Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs Committee passed S1774 by a 3-2 vote. This bill now moves to the Senate floor where it could be considered as early as Monday, December 15.
Simply stated, S1774 would prohibit law-abiding citizens who have already undergone an extensive criminal background check from purchasing more than one handgun within a 30-day period. This bill places arbitrary limits on our Second Amendment rights and would set a dangerous precedent. If passed, this bill gives anti-gun extremists carte blanche to further hinder your right to purchase firearms. Next it could be one rifle or shotgun per 30-day period or even one handgun per six months or year. It is critical that this legislation be defeated.
Please contact your State Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to oppose this unwarranted and unjustified attack on our Second Amendment freedoms. You can find contact information for your State Senator by clicking here.
