Default More from the fine folks in the NJ legislature

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/28/new-jersey-bill-is-outright-gun-ban-on-22-caliber-/?page=1

Quote:
New Jersey has become ground zero this year for legislative battles over gun control.
The Brady Campaign ranked the state third in the nation for most restrictive firearms laws, yet anti-gun Democrats who control the legislature are determined to go all the way to gun bans and confiscation.
The New Jersey Assembly's Law and Public Safety Committee was scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday (postponed for snow) about a bill that reduces the maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10.
Since the legislation covers both detachable and fixed magazines, it has the effect of to banning popular, low-caliber rifles.
The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs gave the draft legislation to top firearms experts in the country to determine what guns would fall under the expanded ban.
They discovered that the bill would affect tube-fed, semi-automatic rifles because the magazine cannot be separated from the gun.
Thus, the experts found that at least 43 common rifles would suddenly be considered a prohibited “assault firearm,” such as the .22 caliber Marlin Model 60, Remington Nylon 66 and Winchester 190.
Just having one such gun would turn a law-abiding owner into a felon overnight.


it continues...
Oh hell, they're not even trying to keep the appearance of being rational anymore.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

And Christie has said he thinks the anti-gun laws in NJ don't go to far. This is why I WILL NOT vote for him no matter who opposes him!

Christie isn't really a Republican so much as a moderate (by today's standards) Democrat. Yeah, I won't be voting for him either, should it come down to it.
If the Republicans keep trying to be "Democrat-Lite", they will continue to lose in dramatic fashion. Democrats will always vote for the actual democrat and conservatives will stay home.
