NJ Dems Trying To Pass Bill That Would Ban Most .22 Caliber Rifles As “Assault Firearms” With No Grandfather Clause Or Amnesty Period, Lead To Confiscation…

Weasel Zippers

These are the same Democrats who were recently caught on tape saying they want a bill that “was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

Via Washington Times:

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.

Possession of an “assault firearm” is a second-degree crime in New Jersey. The penalty is up to 10 years in jail and a mandatory minimum sentence of three to five years, with no chance of parole.

“This bill is a gun ban, there’s no question about that,” Scott Bach, the executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, told me in an interview.

“If it becomes law, it would have zero impact on crime because criminals don’t follow bans. It would only affect legal gun owners by essentially tying their hands when they need to defend their lives.”

Even worse, the bill has no grandfather clause and no amnesty period. So as soon as this legislation becomes law, everyone in possession of these rifles is automatically a felon and the guns are subject to seizure by the government.

  1. These people in D.C. are soooo far removed from day-to-day living, they have no clue what it is like to sit in a house all by yourself and have someone break in!
    I have had it happen. I know the fear.
    IF they were really serious about gun violence, why aren’t they focused on allocating $ to police depts (or County Sheriffs) to go after those who STEAL GUNS OR BUY STOLEN GUNS?

    But! that isn’t THEIR issue is it? It is NOT about our safety. It is about CONTROL and DEFEAT an entire country so they have more control… over who?
    Us? Exactly!

    • It’s all about CONTROL. Control the media, healthcare, food, banks, schools, and guns. Once you have control of all this, you control the people. Well you control the sheeple.
