Liberal NJ Assembly Moving Lightning Quick To Shred 2nd Amendment - UPDATED
This afternoon, Angela Delli Santi, of the Associated Press reports that the liberals in the New Jersey Assembly are coming after lawfully owned guns and our right to own them, and they are moving at lightning speed to do it. At some point today, a package of 20 bills will be introduced. They will all get committee hearings next week and be voted on by the full Assembly on February 21.
It has been evident for the past couple of months that liberals would be coming for legally owned guns. The New Jersey legislature, notoriously a body that does nothing very quickly, has suddenly decided to try and pass these insidious laws before opponents can mount organized opposition.
It is disgraceful that they begin this move on a day when some 1,000 2nd Amendment supporters rallied at the Statehouse in Trenton.
The pace of their actions would indicate that they want nothing to do with hearing from supporters of the 2nd Amendment, or in carefully deliberating what it means to shred the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. If they are able to move so quickly and callously to strip this right from us, which right will be next, and then which one after that?
The committee hearing information and bills they will consider can be found at the bottom of this column.
If you are able to attend committee hearing next week, you are strongly encouraged to do so to be heard.
It will be up to grassroots supporters of our Constitution to defeat these bills. Governor Christie chose NOT to attend today’s rally outside of his office. Now is the time for Governor Christie to forcefully lead the opposition to these insidious laws. Will he?
