New Jersey Next Up To Try Gun Ban Via Magazine Limits

They never stop.

They are also trying to paint themselves into the same corner Connecticut has found its self in.

Trying to limit magazine capacity retroactively essentially would make hundreds of thousands of old .22 rifles illegal overnight, with no Grandfathering.

Thus it would also make hundreds of thousands of New Jersey citizens automatic felons, overnight.

What do you think the odds are that hundreds of thousands of New Jersey citizens are going to turn in their antique tube fed .22's?

I'm talking old semi automatic rifles that hold 15 rounds of .22 shorts in a tube through the stock.

The exact same rifles that were used in carnivals for decades, before the previous generation of Nannies decided that it was too unsafe.

Some of these old rifles were made as far back as 1922 and now all of a sudden New Jersey politicians seem to think they should be banned.

MILLER: New Jersey bill is outright gun ban on .22-caliber rifles and leads to confiscation

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.

My emphasis.

This is a perfect example of "Feel Good" legislation that over reaches so far that the full effects could not possibly have been studied in detail.

If they were and with this knowledge they are still trying to push this bill, then I would simply not comply, period.

As a matter of fact, I believe that if this bill passes, we will shortly after see a whole group of newly unemployed politicians.

Creating an entire large group of felons who were law abiding citizens only the day before to aggressively push an Anti Gun agenda is a recipe for disaster.

Connecticut is currently the test case for this recipe and I believe that so far it has left a really bad taste in a whole lot of mouths.

The full results are not yet known as the brew has not made it completely through the digestive track yet.

Much like a bad case of food poisoning, there is likely to be extreme cramping followed shortly after by a serious case of liquid fecal matter spraying all over the back side of the porcelain.

These politicians have decided it is in their best interests to place their faces directly in front of that porcelain.

H/T to Bearing Arms for the heads up on this.


  1. Confiscation = stealing, pure and simple. You cannot take an item owned by another by force and claim otherwise. What is the difference between GIVE ME YOUR MONEY, GIVE ME YOUR HOUSE, GIVE YOUR GUN. None at all, its all theft.

  2. "As a matter of fact, I believe that if this bill passes, we will shortly after see a whole group of newly unemployed politicians."

    Wanna bet? It's New Jerksky, the liberal idiot pisswits out number patriots by 2 to 1. All the assholes have to do is give them more free shit and they will be re-elected in a landslide.


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
