Trenton, NJ —( Keep flooding legislators with calls, faxes, and emails And then come pack the Committee hearing room on Wednesday!

This is the worst threat to NJ gun rights in history Your efforts matter most right now!

Buses to Trenton on Wednesday are being planned, But you must register immediately so Arrangements can be finalized.

As reported in our last alert, the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hold hearings on a package of 24 gun bills on Wednesday, February 13 beginning at 10 a.m. in the State House Annex, Committee Room 11, 4th Floor, Trenton, NJ (directions here).

The worst of these bills have the effect of banning all rifle-barreled shotguns, numerous rifles and handguns, most rifle ammunition, and magazines that hold over 10 rounds. Ammunition sales would be severely restricted, logged and reported to the State Police, and internet and catalog sales would be banned.

Unaccountable health practitioners (including nurses, social workers, and marriage counselors!) would be turned into spies with the power to effectively suspend Second Amendment rights and have firearms seized. And the exercise of the Constitutional right to own firearms would be conditioned on proof of having firearms safety training. And that’s just the beginning (see detailed bill analysis here).

It is imperative that gun owners and sportsmen flood the Committee Members with phone calls, faxes, and emails between now and Wednesday morning voicing their opposition to these bills (see legislator contact information below). If you’ve already sent an email, please go the distance and make the extra effort to also send in faxes and make phone calls to each member of the Committee, and please do so on both Monday and Tuesday of this week.The extraordinary challenge we are facing needs an extraordinary response from gun owners and sportsmen.

Then, we need to pack the committee room on Wednesday with a show of unity and strength to make sure that legislators who won’t see the light will definitely feel the heat.Everyone will not get to testify, and this will not be a rally, but we need to all be there in a courteous and respectful show of strength. Bus transportation is being planned and coordinated in a joint effort between ANJRPC and NJ2AS. Click here for information and to register – we need to know if you’re coming ASAP so we can finalize arrangements.

On Monday and Tuesday, please call, fax, and email every member of the Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee (listed below). Tell them to vote no on these extreme gun and ammunition bans and other new anti-gun measures, and urge them to instead support meaningful measures to address school safety and the mental health system. Tell them that their proposals will not prevent another tragedy, because criminals and madmen who already ignore New Jersey’s thousands of gun laws will not follow another new law.

NOTE: We have received conflicting information over the weekend as to whether anti-gun legislation will be considered by the full Assembly on Thursday, February 14.Accordingly, at this time we are only targeting the committee hearing on Wednesday, February 13th for attendance by gun owners.

IT’S HAPPENING. The Police State of New Jersey is not content with being outmaneuvered by N.Y. in its illegal gun-grabbing actions. The legislature is considering a number of unconstitutional bills, THIS WEEK, that do nothing to affect criminals but, rather, are aimed at turning citizens exercising their constitutionally guaranteed rights into criminals. Buses are being arranged, from multiple locations in the state, to go to Trenton to protest these illegal actions. If you can’t attend, then you need to email, write, fax, and call (info is in this post) to stop these illegal actions. SHARE this message!!!!

Buses are going to Trenton on 2/13 — if you can attend, see the bus pickup nearest to you.

Would it be a crime to lie to a doctor about gun ownership?

The fact that you even have to pose such a question shows how far down the road toward serfdom we’ve come.

But...NJ is where Stephanie Plum carries a gun and the Sopranos knocked off their foes. Christie Kreme is ignoring the criminals. Oh.. I’m so close to the Mexican border I forget there are greater problems than cartels. Unions and cops who are bought for one.

Yes, organize and resist.

Now look what he is planning:

The Lying POS who resides at 1600 Penn Ave. has decided he will unilaterally reduce our nukes to 900 (for now) without a treaty or Senate approval on the action. By “informal agreement” with the Russians. Nuts.

Now, what does the Constitution say about nukes? See how evil Obozo is.

Commie Dems: “We don’t need no stinkin Laws!”

And where are those in DC defending the nation as they swore in their oath of office?

Remember the part about “protect and defend the Constitution”?

I turned down an offer to work at Bellcore and line up a master’s degree at CMU because of New Jersey politics. That was in 1991. It’s worse now.

“Would it be a crime to lie to a doctor about gun ownership?” . . . Just after I punched him or her in the face for having the audacity to ask me such a stupid question!

Hell no I don't have any firearms and don't you ever ask me that again!!!!!

Americans don't forget who is behind these “gun grabbing” legislation: Law Enforcement bed wetters.

Wonder what they will do when their are 30 million heavily armed “Doners” running around the Country taking back their Country and NOT just in LA either!

Eight Deuce on the Loose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Government check cashers, which in NJ outnumber the government check writers. Most of my neighbors in NJ are current or retired government hirelings, which is far better than the alternative of section 8 foodstampers.

Government size is strongly correlated to population density. There are no economies of scale with government, the reverse actually happens. The population per square mile in NJ is 1,189, which is more densely populated than India's 945 people per square mile.
