Default New Jersey Assembly Committee Passes Gun Ban!

http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=4004


Thursday, June 12, 2008

Please Contact Your Assemblymembers Today!


Today, Thursday, June 12, the New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee passed A2116 by a vote of 5-1.


As passed, the legislation will ban virtually all firearms over .50 caliber. While the Committee attempted to address some of the concerns of gun owners and sportsmen, it still bans many popular hunting guns, historical American firearms, and large bore target firearms, based on alleged public safety concerns. Included are historical American firearms and replicas, including those from the Revolutionary War and Civil War eras. The legislation makes the fundamental mistake of banning guns based on the size of the barrel rather than punishing criminal behavior.


Proponents of the ban attempted to demonize a whole class of firearms and their owners by claiming the only intent of these firearms is criminal misuse. Testifying before the committee as legal and technical experts of .50 caliber firearms were NRA Board Members Scott Bach, Bob Viden and John Burtt.


Please call and thank the lone opponent of this legislation, Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-12), at (732) 866-1695 and thank her for her efforts in defending New Jersey’s sporting and firearms heritage. Also please immediately email, call, and/or fax your Assemblymembers and respectfully urge them to oppose A2116! Contact information for your Assemblymembers can be found here.

I'm confused... what criminals use a .50 cal? Except for the ones in the movies?

Geezzz... when was the last time we had a criminal act with a .50?

This does not make any sense to me... I don't understand where the justification would have came from to ban these weapons.

After reading the bill, I can say it is BS.... This is laying the ground work for more bans....

This is nothing to blow off either... they have a "grandfather clause" but I wonder what you have to do in order to get grandfathered in??? Get finger printed??

If they can't see you owned the weapon before the date of this ban, this is what you are looking at (and it would cost a pretty penny to get out of this -- attorney fees, etc):

Quote:
Under the bill, it would be unlawful to possess a firearm having a caliber of 50 caliber or greater. A person violating this provision would be guilty of a crime of the third degree. A crime of the third degree is punishable by a fine of up to $15,000, imprisonment for three to five years, or both.

My goodness it is going to be a rocky four years....

That sucks. Cali only banned rifles chambered in .50 BMG, which left historic and black powder untouched.

You mean the ones with the gold chain license plate frames and the 5,000,000 watt subwoofers?

Luckily I have a stock pile of these as well as revolvers and single shot pistols, and none of them required a form 4473! Come to think of it, I would rather get shot with a .223 than a 385 gr. lead conical travelling at under 1500 fps. Nothing in recent history compares to the carnage of the Civil War Battlefields...
