New Jersey Assembly Committee Ignores Packed Room of Gun Owners.



Charlotte, NC --(  Yesterday, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee passed twenty anti-gun bills over the vehement protest of gun owners.

Their hearing was moved to a larger committee room when it became obvious gun owner turnout was going to exceed expectations, but the room still wasn’t big enough.

Audio was piped into another overflow room and still more gun owners gathered outside the Capitol.  The state police issued an emergency demonstration permit due to the estimated crowd of more than 500 gun owners in attendance.

This hearing began with the NRA-ILA state lobbyist and two NRA Board members testifying against the package of anti-gun bills, listed below, that included a ten-round magazine limit, penalties for failure to report loss or theft of a firearm, expands the list of disqualified persons, criminalizes private transfers of firearms, authorizes seizures of firearms, a ban on .50 calibers and a massive new ammunition regulation and reporting scheme – among others.  Their testimony was followed by nearly seven continuous hours of testimony from New Jersey gun owners.  The overwhelming majority of that testimony was opposed to the anti-gun legislative proposals.

Some committee members even admitted that these bills wouldn’t be effective at addressing gun violence. 

At times, gun owners scolded lawmakers about shirking their oath to uphold the Constitution and reminded committee members that they were there to serve the people and not vice versa.  The audience was stacked with pro-gun supporters wearing NRA logo gear and military veterans.

There is only one pro-gun bill that was passed alongside all of the anti-gun bills yesterday:  Assembly Bill 3778 by Assemblyman Dave Rible which would keep firearms records confidential.

Thank you for your calls, e-mails and attendance at this committee meeting.  However, the fight has just begun.  These bills are NOT law yet and we must continue to work against them.  These bills now go to the full Assembly for action.  We expect the New Jersey Assembly to vote on these bills next Thursday, February 21st.  It is still early in the process and we must keep the pressure on state lawmakers.

Please call both of your Assembly members and respectfully ask them to oppose these bills.  Contact information for your state legislators can be found by clicking here.

Will Governor Christi sign it or veto it?????

Christi will sign it.  Patriots need to move out of the State.  All gun and ammo manufacturers should quit dealing with any government.

These people in power never learn; however, if they keep this up, they will not have to worry about being in power, they will be gone and good riddance. We don't need these people, they will be a piece of history gone bye, bye....

An illegal law is no law at all.

Don't make a law you can't enforce.



Aristotle said:  'There is no end to making laws, but one thing must

be absolutely understood.  Bad laws are those that create more

law breakers than they were meant to control.

Again, Sheriff's need to step up, read Montana's new legislation.


what those gun owners should have DONE was REMOVE all those voting for this like our fore fathers did before the revolution really got under way by using their COMMITTEES OF SAFETIES and NO allow them to SIT.

Semper Fi.



Seems they are going to do what they want even if it doesn't make sense. Pushing gun owners to the brink! I hope it doesn"t go through.

Christi is a coward who,s soul purpose in life is please his best friend the usurper and fraud hussein ovomit,christi has been busy sucking up to ovomit for several months now and turning his back on his political party,so i guess we can call him a traitor with dual identities. If ovomit gave an order for christie to eat cock roaches i,m sure he would assemble the best chef,s in town to prepare them,anything to please his new best friend,don,t expect to much from this traitor and do not look for any support against all those bills,we need to elect people who believe in We The People.

Registration, Confiscation, Genocide.... well-documented history.

i really think obozo thinks that even though we protest loudly that in the end we will all be good little boys and girls and buckle under and obey this abomination of a law. if i remember history right in germany when they started the gun grab those that pushed it started being found on city streets with their throats cut. will history repeat itself.

If these lawmaking bozos keep it up, Revolution is just around the corner. I know of 3 private militias in my area alone. Real bad idea keeping law abiding citizens down!!!
