Bill Heads To Chris Christie’s Desk To Effectively Ban Hunting Rifles in New Jersey
Independent Journal Review ^ | 27 May 2014 | Caroline Schaeffer

Posted on 05/27/2014 10:38:42 AM PDT by PoloSec

This is one decision the whole country will be watching. The New Jersey statehouse has sent a bill to Governor Chris Christie which would place a “gun magazine restriction” in effect, but in doing so it would also ban many common sport and hunting rifles.

The Truth About Guns reports that the guns in question are some of the most common and popular rifles in the world.

The ban has no exemption for rifles with fixed magazines, including most common .22 rimfire rifles that are used for sport and small game hunting…and almost never used in crimes.

The current law prohibits semi-automatic rifles with a fixed-magazine capacity of 15 rounds, but the proposed legislation would cut that number down to 10. There is no grandfathering clause, meaning anyone in possession of a firearm with an 11+ round capacity would be guilty of a felony.

Whittling that capacity down would make the following common firearms illegal throughout the state of New Jersey.

via The Truth About Guns

Browning Semi-Auto .22

Colt Colteer and variants

Franchi Centennial .22

Marlin model 60 and variants

Norinco ATD .22 (Browning Clone)

Remington 6A and variants

Remington Nylon 66, clones, and variants

Remington 552

Remington 550

Remington 241

Savage model 87A and variants

Winchester model 74

Winchester 190, 290 and variants

Several firearm companies have already altered their products in order to be legal in every state.

Governor Christie vetoed three gun control bills last year, as reported by Townhall, but his positions have been “inconsistent at best on 2nd Amendment issues.” If Christie plans to keep his presidential aspirations alive, he’ll have to veto this law.

He cannot sign that bill, as it violates the U.S. Constitution. < \sarcasm>

Please write Christie and ask im to veto these bills. If he thinks enough people out in America’s heartland oppose this, he will veto them.

REMEMBER, idiotic gun laws which succeed in New Jersey are later tried in Washington, DC, e.g. the Assault Rifle Ban.

Never would I choose to live in a liberal run state such as this.

Its what happens when liberals scream the loudest and become the ‘squeaky wheel that gets the grease’, while all the others remain silent and get nothing.

we knew this was coming back in 1962 when Thomas J Dodd and Emanuel Cellar proposed a federal bill to “Only register handguns. Rifles and shotguns will not be affected.”

But also, every move he is making nowadays is done with his future presidential aspirations in mind.

If Christy signs it, he knows he is done for POTUS run in 2016, (not that I would vote for his fat ass anyway).

I hope Kris Krispy Kreme signs them.

After that, he'll have no choice but to move to the Democrat party. There he will just be just another Alinskyite.

But didn’t you read the stories of all the Tryone and Julio Gangbagers along with all the other thugs and criminals standing in line, eagerly turning their illegal guns in? ...because there’s a law now... and its illegal and all... and the criminals surely would not want to break the law... didn’t you read about that?

Me neither.

They just sit back and wait for all the law-abiding people to disarm themselves... then it is easy pickings, sitting ducks, like shooting fish in a barrel... a criminal’s haven = unarmed victims.

What is wrong with New Jersey lawmakers that they would even pass something like this? I think they are counting on Christy to veto it. They can say to their constituents that they voted for it but Christy vetoed it.

No exemption for tubular magazines? For cryin’ out loud...even Massachusetts exempts tubular magazines.

He's going to sign it, because he knows conservatives won't support him regardless.

He wants to show the fictitious moderates and independents how "inclusive" he is.

The only politician I would trust is one where the newspaper admitted something like, “but everyone knows that this Governor would never sign such a bill” in its first paragraph.

Notice that, with Christie, they allow for the chance that he “might” sign it.

Not sure.

I think he will either veto it or not sign it and let it become law without his signature.

If he signs it, he will be at odds with his party which voted against it 100%. A candidate for President can’t do that and be a serious contender.

Hmmm....?

Did the NJ Legislature also ban all of New Jersey’s black bear population? Coyote population? Wolf population? No?

Then did they instead pass a law to require folks to keep their delicious pets and children INSIDE 24/7?

I thought RINO hunting was already illegal in the united states, why does Christie need another layer of legal protection to layer over his ample behind????

We don’t care about his presidential aspirations, if he has any. But he has shown no inclination, other than those easy vetoes, to back the second amendment. To legally carry here you have to “prove a need”, and unless you’re connected the proof is never sufficient.

He’s running for President, so he will neither veto it nor sign it. He’ll ignore it - effectively a veto with less sobbing from the Newark Star Ledger and the NY Times.

Neither would I. I would not live in Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, California and several others. I have standards.

Christie really needs to stand up, veto this and while he’s at it tear down some of New Jersey’s existing gun control.

I’m completely series.

Americans will respect that. Bigtime. GO BEYOND simply vetoing this bill, and roll back gun control.

That is how Christie can make a name for himself.
