Gov. Murphy Announces Major New Gun Control Plans

By: Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs:

April 15, 2021. Today, NJ Governor Phil Murphy announced a sweeping new package of gun control proposals in an orchestrated press event featuring anti-gun lawmakers, clergy, and civic leaders. Despite stating that most gun crime occurs in NJ’s major urban centers,Murphy went on to announce proposals whose focus is to restrict legal gun owners statewide, rather than severely punishing gun criminals.

Gov. Murphy announced that his proposals include:

  • Banning all 50 caliber firearms
  • Mandating electronic registration of all ammunition purchases
  • Mandating unreliable, useless “microstamping” technology for all handguns (to stamp firearms serial numbers on spent ammunition)
  • Allowing gun manufacturers to be sued for misuse of their products by criminals
  • Imposing gun registration on those moving into NJ with legal firearms previously acquired
  • Banning gun ownership for all citizens under age 21
  • Mandating training in order to simply own firearms
  • Using $12 million in taxpayer funds for anti-gun grants to universities and cities
  • Mandating that firearms dealers carry “smart” guns
  • Organizing anti-gun states to implement region-wide gun control
The particulars of these proposals have not yet been released, but NJ gun owners should gear up to fight one of the biggest gun ban battles of our lifetimes.

    The demo-rats are communist, period. Just like you picked areas for the economic zone,(mostly low life cities) do the same for your crime fighting gun confiscation agenda and leave the remaining law abiding citizens alone. Better yet let’s make south Jersey it’s own state. Leave the crime ridden north to destroy itself.

    One would think that all the violent NJ street gangs and drug dealers are walking around with a 32 pound Barrett 50 BMG under their hoodies. And as for the whole microstamping thing, I guess the next time you want to whack someone in NJ, just use a revolver and ‘recycle’ the brass on your way home. NJ doesn’t have a ‘gun violence’ problem. It has epidemic of violence in their Democrat-run cities. The Dakotas are still offering political and economic asylum to those seeking a better life. I’ve no doubt Wyoming and Montana are as well. And with the NJ Governor requiring so many to work from home, it’s quite possible you can take you job to a new ‘home’ elsewhere. Typical of welfare states, with NJ and NY at the top of the list.

    The guy took an oath dident he ?? If so this is treason and a citizens arrest for this crime should take place & he should be tried for the crime , a lot more of this should be happening to any politician who subverts our constitution and the bill of rights , either that or all out civil war , it’s our choice ! We seen what the nazis did ! This is no deferent

    The US is just another absurd, abusive, ambiguous, arbitrary, and apathetic constitutional republic controlled by one party, the racketeer influenced corrupt criminal organization known as the Democratic Party; like their counterparts in China, Cuba, Indonesia, Iran, Venezuela, and Vietnam.

    Well let’s see what all is wrong with this “dream big” list of gun control drivel. One, you cannot hold manufacturer’s liable for criminal misuse of firearms because their is a federal law that supplies an immunity that applies in state courts just as much as it applies to federal court. Two, there are no microstamping guns produced anywhere by any manufacturer, and the only technology even conceivably available is inherently unreliable. Three, there are no smart guns on the market. Four, imposing bans on guns legally possessed by those moving to the state seems a tad unconstitutional, but that is an open question. Fi e, I don’t know why everyone (including California) wants to ban .50 BMG. It isn’t as if there are a bunch of criminals running around with 20+ pound rifles shooting people and trucks at extreme distances, and if you really do want to bump someone off at 1500 yards plus, there is always .338 Lapua. Training is a great ting, but mandating it as condition of ownership is just a way to crank up the price. (Then again, California imposes a requirement for a Firearm Safety Certificate, which includes a fee of $25 and a test even a brain dead zombie could pass.
    No, the real purpose of these proposals is to incrementally ban gun ownership in Virginia. Sadly, with the Democrats holding a majority in both houses and the governor’s chair, these will pass.

      You mean New Jersey. The story is about NJ, not Virginia.
