New Jersey Bill: Outright Gun Ban on .22-Caliber Rifles

Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 12.22.55 PM
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.
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.
Remember just last May, these same legislators were caught on a hot microphone saying, “We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

Democrats have claimed that they have no agenda to ban and confiscate guns. But last year their true agenda was revealed on that hot mic. This bill is another step in that process.

The timing of this drastic legislation is not by accident. New Jersey Democrats are determined to make Gov. Chris Christie squirm. Their objective is to make the potential Republican presidential candidate choose between local emotional pleas and national pro-gun voters.

State Senate President Steve Sweeney has had families of Newtown, Conn., school shooting at public events over the past few weeks to encourage passage.

It’s most likely that this radical bill will pass the Assembly and the Senate in the next few months. So, Mr. Christie’s veto power is the only thing that can stop the outright attack on gun owners and the Second Amendment.

    One reason among many why I will never again visit NJ or spend any money there.

    • Doc Holliday

      New Jersey is now on my S_ _ _ List. Place deffinately not to go for vacations are anything else. Sorry NJ business. If you can’t control your politicians, you’re probably not qualified to handle my money either.

    • Chief47

      I live in NJ and you have made a very wise decision. What you are reading here is typical of everyday life in NJ. Christie is a bully and if you disagree with him, he will get you, legally or illegally.

      • Pam

        Seems like he is the one being bullied… “The timing of this drastic legislation is not by accident. New Jersey Democrats are determined to make Gov. Chris Christie squirm.”

  • Political Smackdown

    the marlin model 60? what a joke. time to simply Ignore legislators. they are violating the constitution.

    • Bill Ascherfeld

      It seems anybody who hates guns, or is against their ownership by anybody but a criminal or a cop — what a combination!, is honored by the government, but, anyone who stops a crime because he had access to a firearm and brought it to bear, is in danger of being jailed by 12 crybabies! (Not only in NJ!)

      Watch out! If you own a firearm, bring it to bear, fire it and the known criminal winds up dead? You are going to jail for Murder! How pitifully ironic!

  • HongryHawg

    And Christie thinks he a has a shot at POTUS?

    • MrLogical

      He’d better not back this or he can kiss off any chance of receiving the nomination, much less the presidency.

    • blackhawk132

      He does if the phoney dems. stop trying to make it easy for Hill.

    • Gary Persons

      Rino Christie will only have a shot at POTUS is he vetos this bill.

      • Bill Ascherfeld

        Christie is, I believe, the very kind of person America Needs, in spite of the rumor he is not a Natural Born Citizen… If I, a Natural Born Citizen, were elected President… I’d have to be pushed into the office…
        I would have him in my cabinet — Director of making gun ownership popular — More guns in honest citizens’ hands’ — Less Crime!

    • Bill Ascherfeld

      I, for 1, hope he makes it! We need a bully in the Bully Pulpit!

  • Matt

    If this passes and is not vetoed, do like most in conn. did…..give them the finger and tell them to stick it where the sun does not shine. Sooner or later all patriots are going to have to do this in all the states and then I’m afraid the battle will be on.

    • Bill Chasteen

      The battle is about to be on in Ct. The governor there is considering house yo house searches for guns that have not been registered.

      • Mr.Mike

        That will be a big mistake.

        • Bill Chasteen

          I agree. But the governor and the legislators there can’t see it. It will likely be the second shot heard round the world and be the start of another civil war. With Obama declaring martial law.

          • Mr.Mike

            That’s alright, the Constitution is the only thing that gives them any authority. In fact the authority is granted by the governed. Once they declare martial law and suspend the Constitution. They suspend their own authority. Thus we true patriots then have the right to remove these illegal scum from the face of this earth. Because then it is game on boys.

          • Bill Ascherfeld

            I’d like to see the look on O.’s face when he gets F###ed by a .22 Long rifle hollow-point!

      • Chief47

        Going to be an awful lot of shooting going on if that happens.

    • TexasOlTimer

      Texas has passed a number of pro-gun laws. We’ll welcome the patriots here.

  • HDMania

    Sure come and get our guns..they can take the bullets first..

    • Varian Wrynn

      Yeah – I’m afraid all the ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ types are going to get exactly what they are asking for, and it won’t be pretty.

      • HappyClinger

        Just to keep you from being a hypocrite, I vow never to come to your defense if you get attacked. I’m sure other gun-owners will show you the same courtesy.

        • SRM29

          Where in his comment did he express support for gun bans?? He’s right, the “from my cold dead hands” type of gun owners will just wind up dead. Be smart. Those agents will be armored and equipped with military hardware, expecting resistance. The only way we can win is by picking our battles.

  • voldemort

    I let my passport lapse so I cannot visit N.J.. I have been in many countries where guns are not for citizens(socialist) and others whose adult citizens have military weapons (required by law) in their closets(free and will stay that way). I always thought N.J. was strange and this affirms it.

  • guest00789943

    How can anyone who considers themselves an American or a patriot stand by with this going on in their State? Only in New Jersey. Well, maybe a couple of other States too. But make no mistake, trying this on a National level will result in civil war.

    • Doc Holliday

      Whay aren’t the NJ citizens raising up in anger aver this. Camden – one of the highest crime areas in the USA and they want to ban home owner protection ?

      Or — are the politicians in bed with the gangsta’s ? It’s a question you gotta ask.

      • DannoDISQ

        San Francisco banned any guns within their city limits (your house or car) years ago.

        • Bill Ascherfeld

          Maybe… the voters in that town should shrink the City Limits down to the lot “City Hall” is built on.

      • Gary Persons

        Becauwe the large majority of the sheeple in the north teir of our country believe the politians when they are told guns are bad and the root of all evil.

        • Bill Ascherfeld

          I would not expect Those people to be so gullible.

      • Bill Ascherfeld

        Many, (maybe all) Politicians ARE gansta’s! How do you think they get into office??? Most elections, sorry to say, are now “fixed” by the Party “In Power” in that area.
        There has to be a broad “Clean Sweep” of politicians and those who buy elections for them, before this country can get back to “Freedom and Justice For All!

    • JOHN T. FOX

      REVIL WAR AND IT IS COMING AND SOON!

  • astrojohn

    Holder tells the state AGs to ignore laws – I guess we can, too…

    • d

      Going to be a lot of gator fodder out there.

    • Bill Ascherfeld

      The next time I get caught going 95 in a 55 zone, I’m gonna tell the Judge, “Holder said I could do it!”

  • Made_in_the_USA

    Let the games begin….glad I’m way down here in District VI.

  • wdcraftr

    A judge has ruled that Americans can have firearms equal to the Govt. or Military. Although, the 2nd Amendment and God say I don’t need no stinkin’ Judges permission. Next they will outlaw cars, and cameras, and Bibles, and books, and fast food, land ownership, and whatever they want. The Only protection you have against Complete Dictatorship and Tyranny is your Firearms. I would rather die on my feet, than live on my knees, whether in NJ, or any other State. I have No interest in living in Hell on Earth, but Heaven on Earth will come to those who Believe in God, not Man or Govt.

    • JOHN T. FOX

      ACT ON YOUR BELIEFS. DON’T MERELY SPEAK EMPTY WORDS! TOO MANY OF THOSE HAVE BEEN SPOKEN ALREADY. THAT IS WHY WE ARE WHERE WE ARE TODAY!

      • wdcraftr

        There are some in NJ that will. I don’t live in NJ, but if I am in a position to fight or give up, I will fight. I will never surrender my weapons. from my cold dead hands as that General says, and hopefully from his too..

        • JOHN T. FOX

          I’LL BE WATCHING THE WEB TO SEE THE ACTION THAT YOU TAKE. DO SO SOON.

          • wdcraftr

            You’d better watch your own backside, or kiss O’s backside, for so far no one has shown they will come to your aid. God is my Judge and strength, not Govt. or you, or the Web. PS: Why all the SCREAMING?

          • JOHN T. FOX

            WHAT SCREAMING? I’M TYPING. CAP LOCKS IS FAR EASIER TO SEE AND TO READ. OSOMA OBAMA IS THE MOST IGNORANT HUMAN BEING THAT I’VE EVER MET BY FAR! THEN AGAIN MOST HARVARD GRADS ARE STUPID!

          • HappyClinger

            Uh, no, all caps is hard on the eyes. If you have trouble reading, get some glasses; the rest of us don’t need your “help” to see.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            WELL I’M STILL 4 MONTHS FROM BEING ELIGABLE TO GET ANOTHER PAIR OF GLASSES. IT’S BEEN 2 YEARS AND 8 MONTHS. SO IT IS NOT HARD ON MY EYES. MY EYES ARE THE ONES THAT COUNT! YOU OBVIOUSLY NEED HELP IN LISTENING!

          • Destry

            Hey, moron, buy some reading glasses at Walgreens or RiteAid. You can even get some a Costco for 6 bucks a pair.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            I NEED A SPECIFIC PRESCRIPTION (BIFOCALS). THE FRAME ONLY COSTS $246. THE PRESCRIPTION ANOTHER $135. ON MY BUDGET I CAN AFFORD FOOD FOR 3 WEEKS AND DEPEND UPON ROADKILL FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH. I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT WHAT LETTER SIZE I USE. I DO HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT WHAT I’M GOING TO EAT TONIGHT! I DID PICK UP A SNAPPING TURTLE ON THE ROAD YESTERDAY. IT WILL BE NEXT MONTH BEFORE I CAN SKIN HM, CUT’EM UP, SOAK’EM AND COOK’EM.

          • Clay Fitzgerald

            Where you been, morom? It’s been FOUR MONTHS since I posted this! Now go do the world a favor and off yourself.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            NO, NOT SAD, JUST REALITY!

          • Destry

            Johnny boy! Why respond to comments after FOUR MONTHS? You trying to make a point?

          • JOHN T. FOX

            FIRST CHANCE I HAD AFTER GETTING OUT OF THE HOSPITAL WED. KNEE SURGERY. AND I THOUGHT DEBORAH AND OTHERS TOLD YOU OFF FOR ME AND TUCKED YOUR TAIL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS AND WAS SUPPOSED TO QUIT HARASSING ME. THEN AGAIN OSOMA OBAMAS TROLLS ACT AS OSOMA OBAMA DOES!

          • Destry

            Do you really think you have a loyal following to do your dirty deeds? What sort of fantasy land you living in?

          • JOHN T. FOX

            NO! BUT THOSE WHO FOLLOW ME OUTNUMBER YOURS MANY, MANY TIMES! NOW GO AWAY TROLL! I ASK NO ONE TO DO A DIRTY DEED. DIRTY DEEDS ARE USUALLY CRIMES. SO GO AWAY CRIMINAL!

          • Destry

            I was referring to your dirty deeds, so that would make you the criminal if your assertion were true, which it isn’t.

          • Destry

            You were in hospital 4 MONTHS for knee surgery! UNBELIEVABLE! Now, it’s you who’s doing the harassing after a 4 month hiatus… now you’ve come back with more disparaging comments. Have you really got a life outside of your cave?

          • JOHN T. FOX

            NO IT WAS THE ARTIFICAL COMA THAT THEY PUT ME IN TO SAVE MY LIFE. YOUR NOT TO BRIGHT ARE [email protected]!

          • Destry

            YOU’RE truly incredible (as in lacking credibility!) YOU’RE obviously ignorant, TOO, if your samples are evidence of your spelling expertise… “artifical?” So, wise up bright boy, and crawl back under your rock.

          • Bill Ascherfeld

            John, I’m afraid I will have to throw in with wdcrafter and Happy Clinger. I have always been able to read well. But: ever since I was young (I am 79 now and can STILL read.) As you can see, a SMATTERING of “All caps” works well. A whole paragraph of CAPS is hard for ME to follow too! That’s 3 against 1, already!

          • JOHN T. FOX

            WHEN I WAS 18 I HAD 20/10 VISION. WHEN I WAS 19 I HAD A PAIR OF GLASSES. TODAY I NEED BIFOCALS AND CAN’T AFFORD THEM. SOME ARE LUCKIER THAN OTHERS. WHAT’S HARD FOR ME TO FOLLOW IS INCONSISTENT SIZE, LIKE YOU JUST USED.

          • Destry

            Look Bill, Johnny boy doesn’t have a life; he sits in some dark room somewhere (I think it’s in his mommy’s basement) and types out disparaging comments and insults, probably from an old Commodore 64 or something, and thinks it’s got some significant impact when it means doodly-squat.

          • Destry

            Mr. Fox, typing everything in caps is considered to be the same as shouting. If you can’t type without the having ‘Caps Lock’ on then just don’t type; read, comprehend and learn.

          • Larry

            Everything is falling apart and your worried about cap letters ? Get a life

          • blackhawk132

            AMEN

          • JOHN T. FOX

            WELL SAID AND THANK YOU!

          • Destry

            I got a life, but it seems like yours is falling apart.
            Computer etiquette… DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, because it means the same thing as if you’re shouting and it’s easier to read with normal sentence structure. Do you think everyone is deaf and blind? Using caps in a limited manner to add emphasis to something is acceptable, but using all caps all of the time is just pure laziness. Now, you need to get a life, Lar!.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            YOU SOUND LIKE THAT IDIOTIC ENGLISH TEACHER THAT I HAD IN SIXTH GRADE THAT KEPT SAYING AIN’T AIN’T A WORD! IF YOU CAN SPELL IT AND USE IT IN A SENTENCE THEN IT IS A WORD! THAT’S WHAT I TOLD THAT FAT IDIOT THEN AND I AM TELLING YOU THAT BEING ABLE TO SEE WHAT IS WRITTEN IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE FORM IN WHICH IT IS WRITTEN! IT TOOK 20 YEARS TO PROVE ME RIGHT LAST TIME.

          • Destry

            Hey, John T. F-head, increase the zoom in on your computer screen. About 400% ought work for you. If you can’t figure it out, find a 6 year old to show you.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            DOESN’T FUNCTION. NEITHER DOES SPELL CHECK.

          • Destry

            Well, I guess you can’t help it if you’re a meathead.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            NO YOU SOUND MORE LIKE EDITH AND I’M ARCHIE.

          • Destry

            You’re acting more like Mike Stivic, hence Meathead!

          • JOHN T. FOX

            YOUR DEFINITELY DINGBAT HENCE EDITH!

          • Destry

            You’re (not your, moron) just totally deranged. Why the idiotic references to ‘All in the Family?” You must thrive on living about 40 years in the past when you still had a mind such as it may have been.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            UH NUMBNUT, YOUR THE ONE THAT BEGAN WITH THE ALL IN THE FAMILY INSULTS! I JUST PUT YOU IN YOUR PROPER PLACE! YOUR MORE OF A BUD BUNDY TYPE WITH KELLY BUNDYS BRAINS!

          • Destry

            No, moron, I just called you a meathead. That really has nothing to do with “All in the Family” except that Archie called Mike that. But my dad called me a meathead, among other things, long before AITF ever came on TV. So how about if I refer to you by any of the various synonyms that mean the same thing… Airhead, Birdbrain, Blockhead, Bonehead, Bubblehead, Chowderhead, Chucklehead, Cluck, Clunk, Cretin, Deadhead, Dim Bulb, Dimwit, Dip, Dodo, Dolt, Donkey, Doofus, Dope, Dork, Dullard, Dumbbell, Dumbhead, Dum-Dum, Dummkopf, Dummy, Dunce, Dunderhead, Fathead, Goof, Goon, Half-Wit, Hammerhead, Hardhead, Ignoramus, Imbecile, Jackass, Know-Nothing, Knucklehead, Lamebrain, Loggerhead, Loon, Lump, Lunkhead, Idiot, Moron, Nimrod, Nincompoop, Ninny, Nitwit, Numskull/Numbskull, Oaf, Pinhead, Sap/Saphead, Schlub/Shlub, Schnook, Simpleton, Stupe, Stupid, Thickhead, Turkey, Woodenhead, Yahoo, or Yo-Yo? You haven’t put me or anyone else “in their proper place.” Now you’re to the point of just trading insults and are trying your best to get in the last word, as if it somehow made you superior or something. Well, you ain’t superior to anybody or anything, just small and feeble minded.
            BTW, you started the insults when you said, “SOUND LIKE THAT IDIOTIC ENGLISH TEACHER THAT I HAD IN SIXTH GRADE…”

          • JOHN T. FOX

            FATHER KNOWS BEST! YOU CERTAINLY ARE LACKING IN GREY MATTER. YOU DEFINITELY ARE BUD BUNDY WITH KELLY BUNDYS BRAINS! THE WORST OF THE MALE AND FEMALE SPECIES IN ONE BODY! I PITY HAPLESS FOOLS LIKE YOURSELF. HOW MANY SUICIDE ATTEMPTS HAVE YOU MADE SO FAR THIS YEAR? MAYBE SOMEDAY YOU’LL SUCCEED AT SOMETHING, BUT I WOULDN’T HOLD MY BREATH!

          • Destry

            You have some kind of perverse fixation on old television programs! Now you’re going back to Father Knows Best?! These Bundy people you refer to, your friends? I don’t know them. You tired old, feeble minded dolt; is that all you do all day… sit around watching reruns of old TV shows so you can make reference to them in your stupid attempts at insulting others? Is the reference to suicide another moronic fit of yours? You are a rather sick individual and need to seek professional help.
            Sorry to disappoint you, but I’ve been pretty successful at my life endeavors; the last 24 years of my working career I was a construction representative for a very large engineering, design and construction concern; ran many rather large projects: dams, airports, communications towers, etc. in many different types of environments in most of the western U.S. Invested my money wisely and retired before my 60th BD. My wife retired about a year and a half later and we have a net worth in the lower 7 figure range with very low debt. We spend most of our time now traveling in our late model RV. We’ve also raised Siberian Huskies, though we’re winding that part of our lives down in order to travel more.
            Now it’s time for you to trot off to take your meds and go beddy-bye.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            NUMBNUT I DID NOT MAKE A REFERENCE TO AN OLD TV SHOW. I REFERENCED YOUR FATHER WHEN HE SAID THAT YOU ARE A REJECT! NUMBNUT THE BUNDYS WERE THE LONGEST RUNNING ORIGINAL TV SHOW. YOUR A FOOL AND A LOSER! I QUIT WATCHING TV IN 2006. I DON’T HAVE THE TIME NOR INCLINATION TO WATCH TV OF ANY [email protected]! GROW UP OR GO BECOME WORMBAIT!

          • Destry

            Grow up, moron! You’re the most childish excuse for a human being on the internet. You and your idiotic fall back to stupid TV programs makes you appear to be entering your second childhood… a significant symptom of age onset dementia. You state that you gave up watching TV, but still make constant reference to TV as a source of your edification. Good lord, what is the matter with you?!

          • JOHN T. FOX

            I SEE THAT YOU WERE TO COWARDLY TO MAKE WORMBAIT OF YOURSELF! NUMBNUT YOU ARE THE ONE WHO BEGAN REFERENCING TV SHOWS. I DETERMINED THAT YOU EXIST IN A FICTIONAL PLANE OF REALITY AND COMMUNICATING WITH A DEGENERATE SUCH AS YOURSELF WOULD ONLY BE POSSIBLE THROUGH SUCH A PRIMITIVE MEDIUM. YOU JUST CAN’T STAND THE FACT THAT I EASILY BESTED YOU! CAN’T YOU TAKE A HINT, JUST GO AND DO A HEADER OFF A BUILDING ALREADY! I’M GEN X AND NONE OF US ARE OLD ENOUGH FOR ALZHEIMERS NUMBNUT. ANY MORE STUPIDITY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO PUT ON DISPLAY NUMBNUT? HMMM. YOUR A SHALLOW WELL AND NEED TO BE PUMPED DRY. NO YOUR A SEPTIC TANK FULL OF CRAP AND NEED TO BE PUMPED [email protected]!

          • Destry

            The onset of Alzheimer’s is not always brought on by age, you are proof of that if what you say is really true. And your continued posting of childish rants all in caps, as if you have to shout to make a point, shows you to be so totally immature that one can only conclude your are a mere child, or are old enough to be entering your second childhood brought on by a form of dementia attributed to aging.

            Now maybe you can explain how you’ve “easily bested” me, as if your screaming insults are supposed to represent that, it’s you that has been “bested.” You should never enter a battle of wits unarmed, witless twit that you are. And BTW, when you posted “NO YOU SOUND MORE LIKE EDITH AND I’M ARCHIE” you were the first one to make any reference TV shows. If you think using a pejorative term like “meathead” directly infers a connection to a TV sitcom… it is only in your feeble mind, one consisting entirely of mush.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            YOUR A FOOL. YOU CONTINUED STUPIDITY IS PROOF OF IT! YOU ARE STILL TO STUPID TO REALIZE THAT CAPS ARE FOR PEOPLE WITH BAD EYES. GAY NOW MEANS FAG BUT USED TO MEAN HAPPY. HOE USED TO BE A FARM IMPLEMENT AND NOW IT MEANS SLUT. YOUR SAYING THAT BIG LETTERS MEAN SHOUTING INSTEAD OF WHAT THEY ACTUALLY DO (MAKE THINGS EASIER TO READ)! YOU HAVE NO REAL CONNECTION TO THE REAL WORLD. YOU LIVE YOUR PATHEITIC EXISTENCE THROUGH RE-REUNS OF OLD TV SHOWS. NOTICE THAT I SAID EXISTENCE NOT LIFE. YOU NEED TO GO TO THE 5TH FLOOR OF A BUILDING AND DO A HEADER, FOR EVERYONES SAKE! NOW NUMBNUT LEAVE ME ALONE. THE BIBLE SAYS NOT TO ASSOCIATE WITH FOOLS, AND THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE!

          • Destry

            Still ranting and raving, shouting it at the top of your lungs. In spite of what you contend, following internet etiquette, which you woefully lack, typing in all caps is shouting, and your phony excuse is just that; you’re really just too damn lazy to type like a human being.
            Now you need to get professional help for your psychosis and get on a regimen of medications so that you can get yourself under control.
            PS. Reminder, you’re the one that made the first reference to old TV shows, though I’d venture to speculate that the old ones probably had much more socially redeeming values then anything seen nowadays. You seem to have acquired most of your values through current broadcast media. You can’t even type a coherent sentence.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            YOUR STUPIDITY KNOWS NO LIMITS! I PITY FOOLS LIKE YOU AND HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR THEM!

          • Destry

            Another rant and a weak minded attempt at insult. You seem to lack an ability to respond to any point I’ve made with anything of substance.
            Again, you really need to seek professional help for your mental condition and partake of the various meds available to treat it.

          • Bill Ascherfeld

            Well, syonara, I guess this has devolved into a shouting match between John and Des.

          • Bill Ascherfeld

            John, Funny, Mine does. I’ll bet Destry’s does too. Maybe, just, maybe you have a virus in your computer. If you have a “Best Buy” in your area, maybe you should contact the “Geek Squad” and have them check it out for you…

            YOU DON’T LISTEN VERY WELL, DO YOU.

        And you have the NRA to thank for that. The NRA has collected billions of dollars in donations and membership fees, under the guise of fighting for your second amendment rights, when essentially all they have done over the years, is collaborate with the government, exchanging favors, and then helping the government write the gun laws now in existence. We are at the gate of confiscation for this very reason.
        What the NRA should have done over all these years is vehemently defended your second amendment rights and made sure no gun laws got on the books, for nothing but the reason that any gun law is unconstitutional and according to the Supreme Court…”any law that is made that is unconstitutional can and must be disobeyed and ignored” (not exact quote but the meaning is the same).
        We wouldn’t be in the gun control position we are in now if the NRA would have used the billions of dollars of membership money for top Constitutional Lawyers and fought ANY gun law tooth and nail. Meeting the government halfway on gun control IS NOT fighting for your rights.

        • JOHN T. FOX

          YOUR RIGHT! WHEN I TRIED TO BRING A MOTION TO THE FLOOR (AT THE 2012 CONVENTION) THEY MOVED THE MEETING CLOSED AS I WAS STANDING AT THE PODIUM. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF A THOUSAND CUTS. I PERSONALLY TOLD THAT TO WAYNE LAPIERRE, CHRIS COX AND SEVERAL OTHERS. I AM NO LONGER A MEMBER/SUCKER! 25 YEARS WAS TOO BIG A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!

      The Founding Fathers were wise. Unfortunately too many of our younger generations are not being taught about them.

      “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson

      Patrick Henry – “Give me liberty or give me death!”

      Benjamin Franklin – “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” (Nov. 11, 1755, in the Pennsylvania Assembly to the Governor).

    • Bill Ascherfeld

      Well said, but you need the name of that judge to use the quote.

      They already have out legaled land ownership. Look at your deed. It calls you a tenant. Lawfully, you do own the land, but, in the present regime, you are a sole tenant, or a tenant in common, or a joint tenant. (tenant means, renter, legally.)

  • bleufishcat

    A .22?! Really?! If you weren’t convinced before, you should be by now. They’re going for it all!

    • MrLogical

      Next, they’ll be going after BB guns and slingshots.
      Don’t laugh.

      • Phaenius

        They are going for ALL the tubes that have holes to stick bullets in, curtain rods, PVC pipes and….uh….uh….uh oh, better CYA.

  • Art Hock

    This is probably an attempt to deflect the media away from the mass corruption in NJ with billions of dollars missing and fatboy ignoring the problems.

  • gipbmac

    libtards SUCK! Anyone not like the Constitution and Bill of Rights just as they are – GET THE HELL OUT OF THE COUNTRY! Go live in a damn country that mirrors your warped and cowardly beliefs…

  • beagle2725

    if they ban 22’s what do you shoot the rats with? larger calibers are to expensive to waste ammo with.

    • TexasOlTimer

      That’s assuming you can find .22 ammo. It used to be the cheapest and most common ammo on the shelves. Now not so much.

  • MrLogical

    The insanity never ends. Never.

  • Dempsey Coleman

    Question will the supposed Republican Leader according to O’Reilly
    and FOX NEWS will he Sign or Veto?

  • JOHN T. FOX

    BAN THE SAME FIREARMS FROM ALL NJ GOVT EMPLOYEES FIRST FOR A ONE YEAR TRIAL PERIOD. THIS MEANS THE COPS, LEGISLATURES, AIDS, SECRET SERVICE, FBI… THEN SEE WHAT REDUCTION IN CRIME OCCURRED. IF LESS THAN 10% THEN 86 THIS LAW. IF MORE THEN FIRE EVERYONE AT THESE AFFOREMENTIONED AGENCIES!

    • blackhawk132

      Your right John. Cops in England don’t need guns so pass a lawin N.J. that our cops cant have guns also. After all ; The crime rate should go down then ; Yea right.Also no guns on anyone protecting the Congress and President.
      Lets see how long a law like that will last. Can you see how Camden ,etc.,will react ?????

  • Ken

    I guess the Rabbit, I shot on the run, when I was 11 years old, with a 22 rifle. Would have probably liked that law? Die or Live Free.

  • Stealth

    You people in New Jersey need to do what TENS of thousands of us here in the MUTUALLY stinking state of Connecticut..and IGNORE the sons of bitches! Or…as the Governor and legislature here puts it…’MASSIVE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE”… F-em all!

  • refuse2lose

    Law-abiding gun owners should stand their ground… if we give in on this, they will take away other rights.

    • Devilrider

      Once we give in to this, we will have no rights.

  • Kent2012

    and will the toad christy veto the legislation and go to the people and tell them to deluge their representatives with contacts denouncing the travesty……nah, probably not…

  • cuzinlukey

    Never been in NJ. And don’t plan too. My presence there makes no difference whatsoever. I have no desire to leave this great north state.

  • Donnie J McDonald

    New Jersey will not see any of my money. Any government who is planning on disarming their citizens does not deserve any tourist money, or for that matter, any tax money.

  • pysco

    The free citizens of New Jersey needs to make a stand, and notify anyone that’s votes for these laws will be voted out, for Un-American activities, and traitorous acts against the Constitution, of the United States, and the rest of us needs to boycott New Jersey, or anything that comes out of New Jersey.

  • crazzyotto

    just one more reason i’m glad i left NJ in ’02!! the dumass leftwing liberal dems [i know; that’s very redundant. i just couldnt help myself.] can lick my ass. i’ll never spend another nickel in NJ!!!

  • hangman57

    Never vote for Christie because he sign to many gun bills into law . I would never vote for someone who is a Democrat in real life and claims to be a Republican .

  • Libtardharvestor

    Rock, meet Hard Place! I’m not all that comfortable with this depending on Christie

  • Libtardharvestor

    I’m wondering , what with Conn. and now N.J., are the grabbers LOOKING for a showdown?

  • rikker45

    the citizens need to clean house. these morons are breaking the law doing this. they need to just tell the politicians to piss off.

  • gregzotta

    Well the RINO Chris Christie veto this (attack on the Second Amendment) bill?

  • Mike Travis

    This is a direct assault on our 2nd amendment rights. If it passes, whoever voted for it should be charged with a crime and imprisoned for life. Better yet, charge them with Treason and execute them.

  • John

    It is also a reason to completely ignore Christie if he decides to run or tries to run for President. The clown has no business being in politics if he won’t support basic constitutional rights.

  • Elliot Denine

    Totally illegal and unconstitutional. I can only hope that the armed citizens arrest and prosecute these ‘lawmakers’ for violation of their constitutional rights and abuse of authority.

  • Formerparatrooper

    Time for civil disobedience, just as in Conn. This is an unconstitutional law. Disregard it.
    NRA where are you?

  • SK

    I am not worried about any band or confiscations anymore. I have faith in my fellow patriots. I think there will be enough civil disobedience that they won’t be able to deal with all of us.

  • Phil Morris

    Ban .22 caliber weapons? Who in the holy hell draws up this legislation? I learned to shoot with a .22 when I was in boy scouts. Wouldn’t really think about shooting anything with one except for small variants. I know you can get them with collapsible stocks and stuff but that doesn’t really make them an assault weapon. I guess the gun grabbers just want to ban anything that looks scary. Really kind of humorous how they go about things.

  • Dan Nowotarski

    I don’t trust Chris Christie who helped and supports Terrorists and Terrorist appeasers. I doubt that Chris Christie will use his veto power, and is more likely to allow the bill to pass through. God Bless America, Israel, the NRA and all Real Freedom Fighting Patriots.

    • JOHN T. FOX

      NEVER TRUST A FAT MAN OR ONE IN A WHEELCHAIR (FDR), OR OSOMA OBAMA AND HIS ILK!

  • Larry

    Reminds me of Natze Germany . Christy has already showed his true smooching colors

  • CrapsDealer

    Okay, this goes beyond the “assault weapon” phobia. This is blatant infringement. It’s time to throw some piles into the fan.

  • TexasOlTimer

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.” – Adolf Hitler 1933

  • blackhawk132

    Who totally has control in N.J. ? We are and have been a blue state . What do those that vote for these idiots expect ? The people gave us a Republican Gov. along with a Dummocrat Senate . Notice how the dems are villifying Christie ? That’s because he has the best chance to destroy the evil one ;Hillary.
    Keep voting these crooks in . Sooner or later they will turn on their supporters.
    I really hate this state but I have a slew of grandchildren and my wife won’t move away from them. Oh well.

    • Albury Smith

      How many billions in federal aid has Hillary used as a political tool? Fat Boy’s already toast, and the damage from emails and subpoenas is yet to come.

  • Devilrider

    It appears to be time to vacate NJ.

  • Carriersailor

    Exactly FK those fascist (__*__) !

  • Okimeister

    what ever happened to the politicians suppossedly working for the people? It seems the only agenda they work for is their own and not for the people. Makes you wonder if they even actually listen to their constituants at all!!!

  • mule man

    Bet o’s boy signs it

  • rockyvnvmc

    They have No Legal Standing, under the US Constitution, to make Any laws concerning restricting firearms ! Since the 14th Amendment ‘incorporated’ the 2nd Amendment (as well as most of our Bill of Rights, it pertains to the States, as well as the Federal government.
    What is it about ‘Shall Not be Infringed’ that they ‘Progressives’ fail to understand ?

  • robert

    even Califoreignia liberal governor Brown vetoed gun bills, he should have vetoed all.

  • Pam

    Seems to me this could backfire right in the dems faces. If it does pass both the Senate and Assembly and he were to veto he might lose his governorship in NJ, but could set him up a direct line for the presidency. I believe The People have grown weary of arguing their right to own firearms, they will see to it their next representative, local, state, federal, and of course the presidency will be someone with the same view as their own regarding the right to bear arms.

  • fltflyer

    Didn’t these idiots learn anything from Connecticut?

  • TiredVET1

    The people need to start a recall now before it get stated good and show the A-Wipe’s that they can attack and there plan will take them down with the fat paychecks and there personal security will then go away and they will be on the street with folks who sign the petition to get them out.

  • Bill Ascherfeld

    I was born in New Jersey! I owned a .22 Long, semi-automatic tube-through-the-stock rifle. Crooks wouldn’t be caught dead with a .22 Long rifle or pistol. Their favorite is likely to be a .32 or higher caliber semi-automatic pistol that can be concealed in their belt or pocket.
    I am wholly disappointed in the political atmosphere of New Jersey!!! I hope Governor Christie does not let this pass, and if it did, lead a campaign to nullify it immediately! If he isn’t governor anymore, then I hope a totally PRO-gun person is put in his place!
    More guns in civilians’ hands’ = Less Crime! (Try it, I dare you!)

  • wdcraftr

    If the Citizens of N.J. voted to have themselves made defenseless, and subjects of a Tyrannous Govt, and criminals, then they shall get what they voted for I assume.. Anyone who delegates their safety, and their families safety to another, is a Coward, and God says that Cowards will go to the lake of fire.. LOL, N.J. God said sell your cloak, and Buy a Sword, Not Cower down, in Cowardice.. Praise God, Not Man…

  • Nonameever

    Pris Prissey, the one who endorsed Yomama Trayvon for President is gonna veto a gun confiscation bill? As soon as he gives birth to Pelosi’s child.
