Tomorrow at 12:00 P.M., Governor Jon Corzine (D-NJ) will sign Assembly Bill 339/Senate Bill 1774 into law. The signing will take place at
Simply stated, this bill would prohibit an individual from purchasing more than one handgun within a 30-day period. The state already requires an individual to first obtain a permit to purchase – a process which includes an extensive criminal background check and a minimum of 30 days to complete. This bill is just another step that anti-gun legislators are trying to take to erode our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
This legislation 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.
Please contact Governor Corzine IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge him not to sign A339/S1774. Also, please remind the Governor that you will remember his decision in November. The Governor can be reached by phone at (609) 292-6000 or visit www.state.nj.us/governor/about/contact/ to send email.
