This week, a majority of New Jersey lawmakers voted to pass a package of gun bills that target the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of punishing those who misuse firearms.

Once these bills are signed by the governor, expected any day now, the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs will take this fight to court, where they hope to overturn unconstitutional laws.

“None of the bills passed today will make anyone safer,” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scot Bach. “Lawmakers have squandered an important opportunity to make our schools safer and prevent those with serious mental health issues from obtaining firearms in the first place. Instead, they have enacted a series of measures limiting the ability of citizens to defend themselves, and enabling those hostile to gun rights to abuse legal process to harass gun owners. Law-abiding firearms owners are not the problem, and limiting their rights accomplishes nothing to advance safety.”

Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs will be providing detailed analysis of the new laws and their impact on law-abiding gun owners in the coming days and weeks. Regarding the magazine ban, there is a 180-day implementation period within which to comply, so there is time for you one to assess the best course of action to take. That time has the potential to be further extended in anticipated litigation.
