    A bill in committee in New Jersey looks to go after the 2A by banning ammo. The sneaky thing is that the bill does not do it, it gives the state Attorney General the power to determine if a particular round/caliber is a threat to the police. It claims to be aimed at handguns, but with many handgns being made that chamber common usually rifle rounds it could be aimed at those as well. Sorry times in Joisey.

    This will be interesting to follow. I wonder what Cris Cristie will do or say. If he is supposed to be the next great Republican it will be interesting to see if he believes in the 2nd Amendment or not.
    Also if the sheep in Jersey will just go along with it as they usually do.

    This amendment died in committee on Monday and has been withdrawn from consideration....Public Safety Committee members were calling 2A advocacy groups begging them to ask their members to stop calling, faxing and e-mailing. Guess they got the message.

    Lots saying NJ is the armpit of America. But watch what happens there very carefully because the same thing may be coming to your state in the not too distant future. I grew up in Joisy and it was a great place to live. I lived outside of Princeton in the county and you could not built on less than a 1 acre lot. Lots of farmland and woods around. Great hunting and fishing. I can still picture our "crew" of about 15 neighbors walking down the road headed for a pond where we liked to do some shooting. 15 kids walking down the road with guns (mostly 22s). Can you imagine what would happen if 15 kids did that in NJ today. I think as a minimum, it would result in mobilization of the National Guard. And during hunting season one would see lots of pickups with guns hanging from racks in the back windows. Lots of those guns went in the school and locked up in one's locker. The Rod & Gun club met on Fridays and there were always bunches of firearms brought to school for the club meeting. Things really went to xhzc in NJ since then. No more freedoms. An old friend who still lives there asked me to get some ball ammo for his slingshot and a new rubber. Seems that even slingshots and parts are now illegal to have there. Amazing. What is this country coming to. Looks like a 3rd world socialist dictatorship in the making. Glad I am a longtime "from" NJ. Left in 1965 and have never gone back.

    Score one for Jersey. Man, that sounds weird. What's next? Illinois going to tell their puppet masters they can't ban semi-auto's?

    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.
