NJ Liberals Introduce 18 Gun Control Bills Today
Earlier today, in an abbreviated legislative session because of the Joint Session of the Legislature for Governor Christie’s State of the State Address, liberal New Jersey Democrats managed to introduce 18 new Gun Control bills in an effort to further deprive you of your 2nd Amendment right.
While the exact language of some of the bills will not be available until tomorrow at the earliest, the remainder will be available next week; the titles of them are scary enough.
All of them appear to be a massive expansion of Government intrusion into the private lives of law abiding New Jersey citizens and their families if you wish to exercise your 2nd Amendment right. Until the specific language of the bills becomes available, presumably starting tomorrow, it is difficult to determine if any part of any of these bills will curb violence, much less gun violence; or even curtail criminal activity at all.
The 18 new bills and their titles are listed below.
