New Jersey Alert: Gun safety package moves to full Assembly

Protest Rally

Includes five good gun safety bills

Five good gun measures passed the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Thursday (06/13). They all move on to the full Assembly for a vote. The NRA told their members, “it’s critical that gun owners make their voices heard early and often.”

Now is the effective time for gun sense advocates to make a quick call to their Assembly Member’s office. They want to hear from you.

The Bills

👍 A.1016 would require gun stores sell only smart guns that would restrict their use to the gun owner.
👍 A.3696 would require guns be locked up.
👍 A.5452 would require training to obtain a Firearms Identification Card and that it be renewed every four years.
👍 A.5453 and A.5454 would ban the sale or gift of guns to disqualified individuals.
👍 A.5455 would require the reporting of ammunition sales and mandate development of an electronic system for firearm information.
