    On Thursday, May 10, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider gun ban legislation that would further infringe on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms in New Jersey.



    A3998, sponsored by Assemblymen Reed Gusciora (D-15), Michael Panter (D-12), and Robert Gordon (D-38), would ban the possession of all .50 BMG rifles and ammunition by declaring such items to be a “destructive device.” It also would prohibit the private ownership of all .50 caliber in-line muzzleloader rifles, or any antique muzzleloader over .60 caliber.



    A3494, sponsored by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (D-6) and Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-18), would drastically raises all firearm license and permit fees and would allow the Superintendent of State Police the discretion to annually reconsider fees for a manufacturer or dealer license, a carry permit, the firearms purchase I.D. (FID), and the pistol purchase permits.



    Please email, call, or fax the members of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee today, as well as your own Assemblyman or Assemblywoman, and urge them to oppose A3998 and A3494.

    "It also would prohibit the private ownership of all .50 caliber in-line muzzleloader rifles, or any antique muzzleloader over .60 caliber. "

    Are you shitting me??? So they want to make it illegal to own (for instance) a captured relic (or reproduction) British "Brown Bess" rifle, from the American Revolution? After all, it fires an "evil" .75 caliber lead ball.

    Banning muzzle loaders..thats a new one on me. I guess its all the drive by volley's by those damn Yankees that brought this on. *rolls eyes*

    If this goes through it will be bad for everyone, collectors, hunters, and gun owners. We need to band together more than ever and have a strong unified voice. I will try to keep everyone up to date.

    This is how they get more gun laws on the books. Somewhere, down the line, they'll acknowledge their error in including the above mentioned antiques and replicas, then they'll pass an amended version which will just be MORE GUN RESTRICTIONS. Our legislators will then tell us how great they are. More political BS "feel good legislation".

    And I had to move from Pennsylvania to New Jersey. The ban of colonial muskets will go far in keeping NJ the laughingstock of the United States.
    As far as higher fees for permits- I started the application for a NJ Firearms purchaser ID in February. I have $64.00 and about 10 hours of time in it so far and I don't have any idea when I will actually get the permit. Now some assemblywoman wants to make it more difficult and more expensive.

    I can always move back to Pennsylvania. The slogan "America Starts Here" is quite apt. It starts about 30 miles west of Philadelphia.
