Behind The Iron Curtain In New Jersey: They Want To Ban Ammo In NJ

Stolen from Patriot's Corner

I thought I had heard of every type of Gun Control.  Background checks, weeks to wait for a gun, cities that ban handguns no matter what (Thank you Heller!), but this one takes the cake.
I knew New Jersey was not really part of the United States and now I am 100% sure.
Anyone still think Chris Christie is true Conservative?

This is what happens when liberals get elected or 'moderate conservatives get into office.

Who will be REALLY safe if this band passes? Criminal, that's who.

It may get worse in Nazi Jersey as the legislature is also considering bill A103:
One provision of this police safety legislation significantly increases the penalties relating to “defaced” firearms. Because of New Jersey’s longstanding poorly crafted definition of “defaced” firearms, it is possible that refinishing a firearm, or long-term damage from rust or scratches from ordinary wear and tear, could be deemed “defacement” subjecting honest gun owners to lengthy prison sentences, even though identifying information on the firearm is still legible.

From Ammoland
NJ Assembly Committee To Consider Ammo Ban In The Name Of Police Safety

A588 would enable the Attorney General to ban handgun and rifle ammunition by executive fiat.

Trenton, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Common hunting, target, and self-defense ammunition would be subject to ban under A588, along with BB’s, airgun pellets, and plastic airsoft pellets!

Additional legislation being considered (A1013) could land gun owners in jail for refinished or damaged firearms that might be deemed “defaced”

On Monday, January 30 at 2:00 p.m. the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider A588, legislation that would enable the Attorney General to ban all handgun and most rifle ammunition if he unilaterally determines that it “poses a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement officers.”

Cleverly disguised as police safety legislation aimed at armor piercing ammunition (which is already prohibited under federal and state law), the measure actually opens the door to a sweeping ammunition ban by an unelected public official by executive fiat. Common hunting, target, and self-defense ammunition would be subject to ban, along with BB’s, airgun pellets, and non-metallic ammunition like plastic airsoft pellets, if the Attorney General decides that they pose a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement.

Although the bill only mentions handgun ammunition, it is in fact not limited to handgun ammunition, and would apply to all rifle ammunition for which a handgun if ever made. As an increasing number of gun manufacturers make handgun models that shoot rifle caliber ammunition, the line between “handgun” vs. “rifle” ammunition has become blurred, and the New Jersey State Police have already begun treating rifle ammunition in this category as if it were handgun ammunition for regulatory purposes.

So long as a handgun exists that shoots a particular caliber of rifle ammunition, New Jersey treats that ammunition as if it were handgun ammunition.

The Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee is also scheduled to consider A1013 on Monday. One provision of this police safety legislation significantly increases the penalties relating to “defaced” firearms. Because of New Jersey’s longstanding poorly crafted definition of “defaced” firearms, it is possible that refinishing a firearm, or long-term damage from rust or scratches from ordinary wear and tear, could be deemed “defacement” subjecting honest gun owners to lengthy prison sentences, even though identifying information on the firearm is still legible.

PLEASE IMMEDIATELY CONTACT MEMBERS OF THE ASSEMBLY LAW & PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE!

This is not just insane, but I think they are channeling Chris Rock on this:



What is funny in a comedy routine is not funny in real life.  Nor do I believe this is constitutional.  But what do I expect from a bunch of Moonbats.  Come on New Jersey.  Think before you vote.

I remember talk about banning purchase of some types of ammunition a good while back, can't remember the details, but I think is was a Federal thing, not a state of New Jersey thing.

Anyway, Christie may be Conservative on some things, but he is certainly not Conservative on all things.

Surely this will not pass.

We know that using the safety of police sounds good, but in reality the criminals always get guns, ammo, whatever they want. It will be the innocent citizens who are put in jeopardy.
