New Jersey: Relentless Anti-Gun Lawmakers Continue Onslaught in Trenton

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Magazine Capacity Bill to be Heard in Assembly Committee on Monday

On Monday, March 3, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing on Assembly Bill 2006, introduced by Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-6).  A.2006 seeks to lower New Jersey’s magazine limit from 15 rounds to 10.  The Garden State is one of only six states in the nation that even has a magazine capacity restriction. Such restrictions only prevent law-abiding citizens from being able to effectively defend themselves from criminals who ignore such arbitrary limits on magazine capacity.

Rather than focus on real solutions to the state’s crime problem, lawmakers in Trenton are once again looking to punish the state’s law-abiding gun owners.  This unconstitutional legislation represents the largest magazine ban and confiscation scheme in the history of the state.  These magazines are in common use, and there are hundreds of thousands of them which are lawfully owned and used by law-abiding gun owners in New Jersey.  This legislation could turn thousands of unsuspecting, law-abiding citizens, who currently possess magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition for self-defense and other lawful purposes, into felons.  The location for the committee hearing is provided below.  (Could change by Monday)

Hearing Information
Monday, March 3 at 1:00 p.m.
State House Annex, Room 12
West State Street
Trenton, NJ 08625
