    The governor of NJ has decided to make policy on his own, bypassing the democratic process. He is changing state rules in an attempt to force gun makers and sellers to follow a more stringent way of doing business, his way.

    He is making policies as to who the state will purchase firearms and ammo from, and attempting to force banks and other financial institutions to follow his rules or lose business from the state. As part of his agenda, he wants financial institutions to disclose if they do business with any gun or other firearms related businesses. He will blacklist those who don't comply.

    Sounds like McCarthyism to me.

    Here's the article: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/10/nyregion/nj-gun-control.html

    Sounds more like the Nuremberg Laws and BDS to me.

    That is probably going to be stopped via an injunction regarding financial institutions and governors generally lack any authority to create a "blacklist" regarding legal business activity.

    Government control of the means of production. There's a word for that...

    Sounds like gun manufacturers should stop doing business with NJ. I know Glock won't stop supporting NJ police, but it would be nice if everyone else did.

    Totalitarian dictatorship attitude. Should be prosecuted for circumventing the law.

    He can certainly say who his state will buy from unless his state's laws block him or require a public bidding process... As for the rest of it, I'm not surprised at all that New Jersey would try to strong-arm financial outfits to do their bidding... Thank heavens there's a constitution -but it will certainly take entirely too long to knock that sort of stuff into the mud where it belongs...

    Also noted that state's contribution to the list of those on the Democratic side hoping to be their party's candidate for president... and to put if mildly was not impressed at all... For the good folks who live in that state - you have my sympathies...

    And to think Henry rifles moved from Brooklyn to NJ; wonder if they'll move again.

    They should. After all, Magpul left CO because of the politics.

    ..... That was my thought as well. They still have their headquarters in N.J. but they have that 138,000 sq. ft. ( according to their web site), facility in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. Seems to be a national trend among firearm companies to move to more business friendly states. Just like Remington has shifted lots of assets out of NY State, and Kahr Arms left NY State, and Weatherby left California.

    So if ALL the FFL in NJ refuse to sell to LE then...... naaa there would be SOME weasel that would put profit above principal SMH! Always take note of your opposition and what they do. Then react accordingly. So sad for our good friends in NJ.

    More likely... some state procurement official would become an FFL although, knowing how lawmaking works, there’s probably an exemption built into federal law that would allow any state to by-pass the regs...

    -Isn't this the way that some of the state and national armories got started?

    A firearms company that relocated from Brooklyn to Bayonne in 2008. o_O Sounds to me like a really brilliant move.

    They can come to West MI. We have an exceptional workforce, excellent supply chain and best of all we are still a free State.

    Maybe he’s just following our President’s lead, when he turned a plastic stock into a machinegun without any new legislation.

    There are even ways around that. From gtdist.com:

    9) I want to purchase a weapon, but I cannot come to the store. What paperwork do I need.
    1. Correctly formatted departmental letterhead will allow legal transfer of your weapon into your name via shipment to your agency when shipped to your supervisor. Sample letter.
    2. We can also ship to a registered FFL dealer. We require that you fax us a legible copy of the dealer’s license. Fax to TX location at 1-800-480-5845. Fax to Georgia at 1-800-480-5846.
    We've done that a few times, and all they wanted was the letter on letterhead. No FFL required.
