Skip to comments.Newark, NJ, mayor calls for limits on handgun purchases
Posted on 07/13/2008 6:26:42 PM PDT by Coleus
Newark Mayor Cory Booker will hold a press conference Monday afternoon, calling on the state Senate to pass a bill that imposes a barrier on intrastate handgun trafficking. The bill has already passed the Assembly. The legislation would limit the number of guns an individual can buy to one a month. Gun-control advocates argue the bill would prevent straw buyers from making bulk purchases and selling them on the streets to people who cannot pass background checks.
The press conference will take place at 2 p.m., at Elwood Park, located at Elwood and Summer avenues in Newark's North Ward. The location is the site of a recent shooting at a Barringer High School graduation party, which left one student dead and another wounded. Bryan Miller, executive director of Ceasefire NJ, a gun control advocacy organization, will also attend the press conference.

Better raise those taxes again in the People’s Republic of NJ to pay for all of the legal fees for that long term loser.
i have to laugh at these judges and politicians who think that a piece of paper will protect the woman who was threatened. What they should do is issue the woman a gun to protect herself.
limit the number of guns an individual can buy to one a month = Infringement
Registration requirements = Infringement.
Carry Permit requirements = Infringement.
FOID card = Infringement.
FFL requirement = Infringement.
BATF existence = Infringement.
undue burden = Infringement (any burden is undue).
Heller = just the first step down a long road back to Freedom.
Besides law enforcement, is there such a thing as a legal handgun in Newark?
New Jersey Democrats are annoying. Come to think of it, so are New Jersey Republicans (the elected ones).
One gun a month? It’s hard enough to convince the wife to get one every two years. These politicians are crazy, unless they also intend to incorporate a handgun purchase tax credit into the Federal tax code. That would be helpful.
Yes....but no one actually owns one.
Libs are still in the first stage of grief over Heller.
If nothing else, that may serve to quiet these yahoos down for awhile.
12 NEW GUNS PER YEAR.
That's 10 or 11 more than I buy now!
This isn't grief. This is either denial or delusion, IMHO.
Denial IS the first stage of grief. Sheesh.
So I s’pose another gun law is going to fix the problem?
Would you mind if I put your post on my FReeper home page?
Gun Laws are only followed by those that really need one !
Criminals do not follow laws as you and MOST here well know !
Socialist Polidiots need too get their chains yanked by the a deluge of lawsuits based on the heller decision........the threat of breaking their seditious piggy bank is all that will stop em IMO.
It’s one handgun purchase a month.
You could still get a Mosin Nagant or 3 a month, along with your choice of shotgun.
Psychoanalysis is so passe'.
Use it like you wrote it. Spread the word.
Just another example of how New Jersey is the “East Germany” of the United States. The rest of the country takes a turn toward restoring the rights of it’s citizens, and in response our politicians try even harder to take our rights away.
Here’s a real beauty from an insane judge up here in NY. Last time I checked, NY was in the United States.
Unless you have a Virginia conceal carry permit, in which case the 30-days rule doesn't apply.
Well this law wouldn't affect that, for that you want a long gun, not a handgun. Preferable an evil assault weapon (or better yet a real assault rifle) OR a "Serious Social Purposes" shotgun.
Unfortunately the former are all but banned in New Jersey. Actually they are subject to the same controls and procedures as machine guns, so if you want one, might as well go for the Real Deal.
OTOH, a nice lever action in 30-30, .44 Magnum or even .45 Long Colt, would serve almost as well. Then again a scoped bolt action hunting rifle, in a serious caliber (meaning .270 or larger) might also have it's uses in such a social event.(98K Mausers and 7.62x54 Moison-Nagant or clones would serve quite nicely too, and they are cheap)
The judge is correct that the Second Amendment has not yet been shown to apply to the states (well not by the Supreme Court...yet) However, Article 2, Section 4 of the New York Civil Rights Law provides: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.
Now another NY State statute could override that, but a city or other local ordinance cannot.
Since the only difference between that provision and the second amendment is the substitution of "cannot" for "shall not", the Supreme Court's definition of the meaning of the RKBA must be the same in both documents. Since it's a state statute, it was already clear that the right (which is assumed to exist by the language of both) cannot be a protection of the militia, since the militia is already under state control and why would anyone in their right mind want to prohibit the state from disarming itself?
Walsh wrote that the ability of New York residents to keep and bear arms is a privilege granted by statute. The state's constitution contains no such guarantee, he added.
Yes the constitution does not contain such a guarantee, but the language of the statute indicates that the right is preexisting, not created by the statute (it does not say "The people shall have the right...". The statute merely states that it cannot be infringed.
IOW, the judge is an AshHat.
....Virginia conceal carry permit....etc....
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
I checked you out and lo and behold there are about 8 different circumstances when the 1 per month is waived.
The original was none but an authorized dealer etc, but there are 8 amendments....
If you are interested, Google ‘virginia gun purchase’ and it is right on top....
This is contempt of court, pure and simple.
Jumped the gun/pulled the trigger too early. I meant to say will be(my rosy optimism).
