New Jersistan is heading towards criminalizing more aspects of individuals seeking to effectively equip themselves for self-defense against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Riding on the fear-mongering tide of the tragedy of the Las Vegas shooting, New Jersey “lawmakers” (or, busybody narcissists that assume they have a right to control the lives of millions) are pushing Bump Stock ban legislation through. The bill itself, of course is broadly written so as to create more opportunities for the busybody narcissists to criminalize self-defense.
New Jersey is moving forward with legislation to ban bump stocks, like the one a gunman used in the Las Vegas concert shooting to turn a semi-automatic weapon into a rapid-shooting gun.
The proposal, which came in the days after the October massacre that killed more than 50 people and injured 500, advanced in an Assembly committee Thursday.
The legislation would tighten New Jersey’s already tough gun laws. Under current law, it’s a crime to possess an assault rifle — a semi-automatic gun with certain features mimicking military weapons — or the parts designed or intended to turn guns into such firearms.
That means the stocks already cannot legally be used on weapons, but Democrats want to outlaw possessing bump stocks at all. Lawmakers say their bill would make selling, shipping or disposing of them punishable by up to five years in prison, a $15,000 fine or both.
