    The bills were introduced this month by Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, who met with Murphy and representatives from gun safety organizations last week to discuss gun violence in New Jersey and reforms needed to ensure the safety of all New Jerseyans.

    "Throughout my time in the Assembly, I've worked to keep our communities safe from gun violence. I've sponsored legislation to lower magazine capacity to 10 rounds, supported smart gun production and sales in state, worked to create gun buyback programs, and pushed for stronger background checks," said Greenwald. "I am proud to have an ally like Governor Murphy working hand in hand with the legislature as we work to end gun violence and ensure New Jersey is a safe place."

    The bills would do the following:

    • A2761 - Reduce maximum capacity of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds; exempts firearms with .22 caliber tubular magazines from 10 round limitation.
    • A2758 - Codify regulations defining justifiable need to carry handgun.
    • A2757 - Require background check for private gun sales.
    • A2759 - Prohibit possession of ammunition capable of penetrating body armor
    • A2760 - Revise definition of destructive device to include certain weapons of 50 caliber or greater.
    Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, appearing with Murphy on Tuesday, said "enough is enough" regarding gun massacres.

    "We're here to put our words into action," he said. "To ensure that our schools, our communities, our workplaces, remain safe from violence, we're here to do what is within our collective power to ensure that the unspeakable horror that took place last week in Parkland, Fla. never repeats itself ever again.

    So now we're banning all rifle ammunition...?

    A2759 looks limited to handgun ammo only. It seems to extend existing restrictions on handgun ammo.

    I left NJ some years ago, and when I think of the amount of time I spent reading the laws as written, making copies to keep in my range bag, just so I could be sure to comply.... And have a handy reference in case of being stopped en route to a lawful destination. Kind of sickening.

    Also in NJ, "possession" doesn't necessary mean what a person ordinarily would think. I'm not a lawyer, but I recall a lot of discussion that NJ "possession" meant in your car, in public, etc, but not necessarily at home. The law that would be amended via this bill includes exemptions for home, property, and collectors, but the exemption doesn't seem to cover "armor piercing".

    Wonder if the ghetto thugs in Camden, Newark and elsewhere will comply?

    What is considered handgun ammunition anymore? With the advent of pistol AR's being classified as handguns, wouldn't that in effect restrict the sale of all 5.56 ammo and the like?

    Or a Thompson Contender, de facto restriction on all rifle ammunition.

    I suppose it's a good thing AR15 pistols are already banned, then?

    I'm so glad that I moved from New Jersey. You can bet your bottom dollar, someone is thinking of new laws to restrict firearms in the "Armpit of America".

    Getting a permit to carry in NJ is all but non existant. They require an unnecessary amount of hoops to jump through as is. These are examples of the "sensible gun control" measures I see antis wanting to pass.

    Getting?
    It seems they’re the worst. Background checks to buy ammo? What’s next? Outlawing pickup trucks because they cause global warming?

    I know. As you know I’m worried about my state.

    Our idiot Governor says he’s going to institute gun control via executive order. We don’t knkw what he has planned, but just saying it should worry everyone.

    On a fun note If you look at an F350 diesel, it’s carbon footprint is actually much less than the ecological disaster called the Prius over its life. But don’t tell that to them as they hate facts. All the fuel alone shipping Prius parts all over the world, the chemicals for the batteries and the relatively short lifespan along with most being driven solo...

    Anyway, I’m glad I learned to reload. And no more comments

    Too late, Sacramento already wants to ban gasoline-powered vehicles entire.
    They'd probably start small, like you'd need a contractor's license to have a non-sedan vehicle. The elites would hire a contractor so they could keep their Tahoes and Escalades.

    I would have thought that NJ had all that and more already.
