The "upside " to this story line is the bills were killed thanks to the alert/timely efforts of the NJ Rifle and Pistol Association !

FWIW, proponents of this legislation worked hard to make it a "last minute" part of business in hopes it would pass without opposition . Their underhanded tactic - thanks to NJ gun owners and orgs - failed ! But all gun owners - and anyone cherishing the freedoms expounded in our
Constitution - needs must be cognizant that our unceasing vigilance is just but one of the "costs of freedom" we needs must pay

Makes you wonder if/when the day will come when you wake up and find out that you cant buy ammo anymore because they truly did sneak one under the radar...

Glad to hear that they stopped this nonsense. Now if the voters can get the slimeballs who tried to pull this off out of office it would be a great start to taking the state back.

Who are the law abiding citizens hurting by purchasing ammunition for THEIR guns? Oh yeah, nobody. This crap wouldn't fly in my state, it would hurt the economy more than it already is. Firearm deer season is a $500,000,000 industry alone. And that's just 1 hunting season. Any caliber/gauge that can take down a deer can also hurt a cop.

Glad it didn't go past committee. Although, it would have been silly to proceed. I'm pretty sure that someone stood up and said "you know that there's no such thing as 'handgun calibers, right'?"

There's a law similar to that in Florida, where if you're under a certain age, you can't buy ammo for a pistol, but you can for a rifle. Heard that during my hunter's ed course. Everyone immediately asked "But what about .22 ammo?"

The guy giving the lecture just shook his head and said "Yeah, I know."

In that regard, some retailers just ask what the intended use is. Always answer "rifle".

I read an article about this subject a while back. The writer basically said that if the anti-gunners can't get rid of the guns, they'll go after the next best thing. He said to expect attempts to ban ammo, tax it, and do whatever they can to make it more difficult for people to get.

Yep. Some stores I've been to sell pistol rounds for rifle use. More sales.

I mean you could make the same argument for nearly any pistol load with the carbines out there. You can buy a hi-point 9mm carbine for about 300 bucks and shoot 9mn pistol rounds from a rifle all day.
