Gun Control Vote Set for Thursday

20 New Measures Including Ammo Magazine Regulations Expected to Pass Assembly Next Week

By Matt Rooney The Save Jersey Blog

The New Jersey State House

Heads up, Second Amendment-loving Save Jerseyans:

The State Assembly voting session board list is out for next Thursday (2/21), and I’m told by someone in-the-know that the twenty (20) new gun control measures passed through the Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee on Wednesday are on it.

We’ve already discussed the more egregious measures at great length. You know what the stakes look like. Assuming these bills survive the Senate, Governor Christie will have some politically difficult decisions to make. 

Inform yourselves AND others… here’s a list of the measures facing a floor vote directly from the Committee website; I’ve reposted the to-be-voted-upon measures in bold/italicized font below the fold…
