10 New Bills Clear State Senate as Members Mock Second Amendment Rights

By Synnove Bakke | The Save Jersey Blog

gunThe Assembly majority Democrats passed a whopping 21 bills on gun control a few months ago.

The Governor and his Task force made their recommendations in between, and on Monday, the New Jersey Senate chose to pass ten new gun laws, preserving New Jersey’s reputation as the 2nd most restrictive state in the nation when it comes to private gun ownership. It’s now up to Governor Christie to sign off on the new legislation or veto’em. Many gun owners are worried that the Governor’s veto pen will remain tucked away in his pocket.

Among the legislation approved yesterday was a measure that would create a study commission on violence (S2430), a bill requiring the state to submit certain mental health records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (A3717), another to open a 180-day window for people to dispose of illegal guns (A3796), and a piece of legislation that would authorize law enforcement to impound cars used to transport illegal guns (S2468).

There are a whopping 161 bills on the Public Safety Committee’s web page, Save Jerseyans. Some have already been introduced, and some have already passed. Trying to maneuver around there, or even to simply make sense of the pages upon pages of gun laws, proves to be a truly mind-boggling exercise and a little stressful to say the least…

New Jersey Democrats differ slightly on the gun control issue, and there has been a good deal of infighting in the Democrat party (I always love when the Democrats fight among themselves). But in the end, New Jersey Democrats, like our President and his party mates on the national level, can always be counted on to err on the side of infringing upon citizens’s rights.

In case you missed it late last week, a video has been making the round online which appears to catch New Jersey Democrat Senators and/or their staffers mocking legal gun owners and uttering absurd comments like:

…we needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

…they [gun owners] want to keep the guns out of the hands of the bad guys, but they don’t have any regulations to do it.”

…they don’t care about the bad guys. All they want to do is have their little guns and do whatever they want with them.”

Click here to hear the “hot mic” audio for yourselves. The Blaze and The Star-Ledger haven’t confirmed the voices’s identities.

The relevant point is that this is what they think of your rights, people! Never forget it, and if you’re about to forget, listen to the audio one more time.

  1. the 2nd amendment only applies to the federal government not States. that being said, i am against all of these laws and bills and think that most governments ought to go on a permanent recess and let people live their lives

  2. ^the idea of incorporation of all laws from the feds to the states is a VERY slippery slope. I would rather take things on face value fro the founding document itself rather than from some unelected judge in DC. I don't agree with incorporation because you then you may as well do away with the 10th amendment which is very clear

  3. OK…so our FID's are no good? What happens next? A complete new program? who pays for that? Oh..has there been abuse of FID's..I haven't heard..
