New Jersey Legislature Votes for Gun Rationing Bill

Friday, June 26, 2009

One-Gun-A-Month Heads to Governor’s Desk

In the wee hours of Friday morning, June 26, Governor Corzine and his anti-gun cohorts in the New Jersey State Senate vote 21 to 15 to pass S1774, a bill that will arbitrarily ration the sale of handguns to one per month.     

 

Earlier this year, S1774 was pulled from the Senate floor when the sponsor was unable to garner the necessary 21 votes for passage.  This time, taking orders from Governor Corzine, Senator Fred Madden who previously voted “no” and committed to hold firm in that position, switched his vote at the last minute and voted "yes" to ration the Constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to obtain firearms.

 

As passed, this bill will prohibit an individual from purchasing more than one handgun within a 30-day period.  The bill now moves to Governor Corzine's desk for his consideration.  

 

Please contact Governor Corzine and respectfully urge him to veto this bill and remind him that you will remember his decision on election day.
