Third Circuit Tells Gun Owners They Must Turn In Their Gun Magazines, Will You Comply?

New Jersey – -( December 5, 2018. In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit refused to stop the enforcement of New Jersey’s 10-round magazine ban.

The majority, in an opinion by Judge Shwartz and joined by Judge Greenaway, both appointed by President Obama, held that the ban did not violate the Second Amendment because it reasonably advanced the State’s interest in reducing mass shootings without severely burdening the rights of law-abiding citizens.

Third Circuit Opinion on New Jersey Democrats Gun Mag Ban

Judge Bibas, appointed by President Trump, authored a forceful dissent, pointing out that the majority refused to apply standard constitutional principles to the case and instead treated the Second Amendment differently than any other constitutional right.

Judge Bibas observed: “The Second Amendment is an equal part of the Bill of Rights. We must treat the right to keep and bear arms like other enumerated rights, as the Supreme Court insisted in [District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008)].”

He rejected what he termed the majority’s “watered down“ approach to the Second Amendment.

Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs intends to appeal the decision.

In the meanwhile, the last day for gun owners to comply with the mag ban law is December 10, 2018. Failure to comply by the deadline is a 4th degree crime that could result in fines and imprisonment for each non-compliant magazine, in addition to loss of gun rights nationwide.

Last week, Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs issued detailed guidance to gun owners about compliance with the mag ban law, including non-obvious, lawful ways for law-abiding gun owners to keep owning magazines between 11-15 rounds without modifying or destroying them.

    Is the TURD Circuit complying with the YOUR Constitution? And if they are judged appointed by the Negro that they are not legal to be up there since the Negro sodomite was a usurper.

    So do you have to comply? See the above. :arrow: :neutral:

    Don’t be surprised to learn that it’s the Billionaires,who are behind this as well as climate change. It’s the Bloomberg and others who are forcing this upon the people. Again, the less than 1% doing it to the 99%, why ? Because they don’t have anything better to do. What problems do they have ? None that cannot be resolved, so they turn to power. This is what you are witnessing. There needs to be a limit on how much money anyone person can earn.

      I keep my guns as a matter of constitutional duty. I am ready to carry out a war with foreign troops on our soil. Do you think we do not have foreign troops here? Apparently you have not seen the pictures off UN vehicles being moved in large numbers? As an American are you prepared to do your duties?
