New Jersey: Assembly and Senate to Vote on Smart Guns on Thursday

Last week, anti-gun lawmakers in Trenton passed several bills out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee.  This week, both the Assembly and the Senate are scheduled to convene for a voting session on Thursday to advance “smart gun” legislation, A.1016/S.101, and potentially one or more of the bills heard last week.  The agenda is in flux; however, every NRA member should be contacting their Senator and Assembly members and respectfully request a “no” vote on this bill and all other gun control.

A.1016/S.101 is nothing more than forced market acceptance of a technologically unviable product.  This bill would mandate gun shops to offer smart guns for sale.  The current New Jersey smart gun law was enacted in 2002 and says that once smart guns are certified as viable, then ONLY smart guns may be sold.  That of course is a ban on traditional handguns.  Because the smart gun market has never materialized in the 17 years since New Jersey passed its law, anti-gun politicians have grown weary of waiting and are now going to force feed the market so they can presumably enact their ban on the sale of traditional handguns.

The other bills we previously reported on and which may be included on Thursday’s floor calendar include:

A.3696/S.2240 requires the mandatory storage of firearms.

A.5452/S.3876 would require FID cards to be renewed every four years. 

A.5453/S.3879 deals with straw purchases, which are already a violation of both federal and state law.  However, this bill is so confusing and poorly worded, there is legitimate concern that this unnecessary bill will do nothing more than ensnare more New Jersey gun owners with hyper-technical violations.

A.5454/S.3897 is another straw purchase bill.

A.5455/S.3898 would require the reporting and registration of ammunition purchases.

Please contact your Senator and Assembly member immediately and respectfully request a “NO” vote on A.1016/S.101.  And again, the schedule is subject to change up until the last minute, so please also request “no” votes on the entire list of bills which were passed in the Assembly Judiciary Committee last week and may also receive a vote later this week.​
