NJ Passes Major Gun Legislation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Of course, this only effects the law abiding, rather than the criminal element who doesn’t care about the vast amount of laws on guns

New Jersey lawmakers pass gun carry legislation after ruling

New Jersey lawmakers gave final approval Monday to legislation overhauling rules to get a firearm carry permit after this summer’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling expanded gun rights.

The Democrat-led Senate passed the measure in what is scheduled to be the last voting session of the year, sending the legislation to Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy. In an emailed statement, Murphy spokesperon Tyler Jones said the governor would “swiftly” sign the bill.

“Since day one of his administration, Governor Murphy has been vocal about his support for stronger gun safety laws in the state of New Jersey,” Jones said.

Is it good legislation if it was passed on strictly party lines, with one Democrat in the Senate voting against it?

The legislation scraps New Jersey’s current requirement that those seeking a permit to carry a firearm show “justifiable need” and be of “good character” to reflect the Supreme Court’s June ruling.

That’s the only part that is good

Other changes in the legislation include disqualifications for those who have been confined over their mental health, people who have had restraining orders as any “fugitive from justice.”

Didn’t they already have that?

The measure calls for the end of a paper permitting system that used quadruplicate documents to register applicants. It also would establish a yet-to-be created online gun sales portal.

So everything would be in the system down to the tiniest detail

It increases from three to four the number of endorsements from non-family members in order to get a permit. They would also have to be interviewed by law enforcement officials as well.

Huh what? Pretty sure that isn’t in the Constitution, or the NJ Constitution.

The measure also boosts training requirements, calling for online, in-person classroom and target-shooting instruction. And it would require permit carriers to carry liability insurance.

I’m not necessarily against training requirements, especially for those who are going to have open and/or concealed carry. Or, hell, for just keeping it at home. Liability insurance, though, is going to be a big, big problem, as you know it is going to be really expensive. For one thing, there really aren’t many who offer it. Having the insurance doesn’t really save lives. And it is an unconstitutional tax on an enumerated Right.

And none of this will reduce shootings and murders by criminals, who pretty much do not get any sort of permit. This will be going back to court the minute Murphy signs the legislation. It might fly if there were serious penalties applied to the actual criminals who illegally own guns and use them, but, NJ is soft on those people.

          Stalin: “ALL political power comes from the barrel of a gun”

          When communist oppressor’s (cops) have you outnumbered, and you reminding them they are traitors and they are wholly violating the 2nd Article of the Bill of Rights, they tend to act even more psychotic.

          NOTE: The RIGHT Bear Arms is the 2 Article of the 1st Amendment called, “The Bill of Rights”, it is NOT the 2nd Amendment. The Bill of Rights is the 1st Amendment which list 10 specifics unalienable rights called Articles, the 2nd Article which is our RIGHT to Own & Bear Arms is specifically for when the “gov’t” becomes so corrupt and tyrannical, that the only way to fix it, is to forcibly remove the traitors. Anyone who “discusses” the Right Own & Bear Arms, and calls it the 2nd Amendment is showing how little they know. – JD
