This Is It: New Jersey Assembly Officially Schedules Massive Attack on Gun Rights

Friday, February 8, 2013

More than 20 Extremist Anti-Gun Measures to be Heard  on Wednesday in Trenton

Since the beginning of the New Year, NRA-ILA alerts have detailed the massive anti-gun package being crafted at the State House.  The time has NOW arrived for gun owners to come together and stand up in Trenton for our Second Amendment rights.  The Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee is meeting at 10:00 a.m. this Wednesday, February 13 to consider and vote on more than twenty anti-gun bills.

We need a strong and coordinated showing of gun owners to have a chance to withstand this barrage.  It is important that EVERY NRA member in New Jersey call and e-mail members of this Assembly committee AND their own Assembly members immediately.

We will continue to provide updates and detail bills in the package, but this truly is a historic assault on the Second Amendment.  There are bills that would reduce magazine capacity to ten rounds and make drastic changes to the already cumbersome Firearms ID process, among others.  The list of horrible bills is long, but you can view the proposals here.

The NRA and our state association, the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC), are calling for "all hands on deck." 

Gun owners should attend the committee hearing on Wednesday and the Assembly voting session on Thursday. 

We need a massive showing in Trenton to demonstrate to state lawmakers that it is unacceptable to do what happened last month in New York.  If this gun control package is passed and enacted into law, in addition to current state law, the constitutional rights of gun owners will be greatly diminished in the Garden State.

Please contact your state lawmakers and respectfully urge them to oppose gun control and instead focus on the real issues that would make a difference to prevent violent crime and mass murder: mental health and school safety.  New Jersey already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, and history has proven that these laws do not stop criminals.
