Democratic lawmakers want to take the state's tight gun control laws and expand them outside of New Jersey's borders.
There's new legislation that would ban state-sponsored travel to any states that don't require their residents to obtain a permits before they purchase a firearm.
The goal is to send a message to the National Rifle Association, said State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, the bill's sponsor.
"Fighting the NRA on the basis logic and rational thinking has not worked," Weinberg, D-Bergen, said. "So I think the thing that might work is fighting them with their pocketbook."

Is everybody in NJ brain-dead?
The US Constitution grants the interstate trade power to the US Congress.
OK...when did THIS happen?
Bring them on, they will not like the reception they receive when they enter our homelands. 8>)
No one will miss them, it’ll be a relief that they don’t come to your state.
NJ has too many left-wing female control-freak legislators like these two:
Blue states attempting to wage economic warfare on other states for daring to have different laws.
Uh...who are these idiots, anyway?
I wonder how many pro-gun states sponsor travel to NJ?
Really shows it's all grandstanding, and especially meaningless when no one in the boycotted states is probably even aware of it. Seriously, go ask the average Joe in Tennessee what effects the California ban on state-funded travel to their state has had on them, they'll probably reply "I didn't even know they were doing it."
Maybe some of those states should just refuse to take any more of New Jerseys garbage and hazardous waste.
People who think traffic circles are a good idea.
weinberg....during budget hearings
A little fiscal restraint is in order for NJ.
Save a couple of bucks and just eliminate spending on travel for state employees. Your taxpayers will thank you.
She is an elderly liberal lady.
Meaningless virtue signaling that could backfire if gun owners decide to boycott NJ.
Traffic circles are great for locals who know their way around.
If you are from out of town they are confusing.
Crossing NJ off my travel list, permanently. Of course, there isn’t any reason to go to that leftist s**hole anyway.
