With the stroke of a pen the state of New Jersey turned thousands of citizens into felons yesterday with the High Capacity magazine ban. Anyone in possession of a magazine holding over 10 rounds can be charged with a 4th degree felony! Those who are still in possession of magazines could face fines up to $10,000 or up to 18 months in prison! When asked how the police planned to enforce the new law they honestly had no idea. Much like New Yorks safe act in which only a small fraction of “assault rifles” (Yes we hate this term. Its fucking stupid.) were ever registered.
According to Breitbart The New Jersey State Police corresponded with Breitbart News on December 11 and refused to rule out house-to-house enforcement of the state’s “high capacity” magazine ban.
On December 10 Breitbart News reported that New Jersey was hours away from making it a felony to possess a magazine holding more than 10 rounds. The law took effect during the midnight hour of Tuesday, December 11.
Breitbart News contacted New Jersey State Police on Monday to ask how they planned to enforce the newly enacted ban. We asked whether they would enforce it on a traffic-stop basis–checking magazines in firearms when they pulled over drivers for speeding, wreckless driving, etc.–or whether they would enforce it by going to house-to-house to check magazine capacity in the firearms New Jersey residents kept in their homes.
The basis for the question about house-to-house checks is that Americans always fear Second Amendment prohibitions will…
This just in: for months, individuals have been challenging NJ’s limits on large capacity magazines—a sensible law to address mass shootings. Today, the court of appeals upheld the law. Big win for public safety and law enforcement safety! pic.twitter.com/xjc5B0x9H5

Again. The message hasnt changed. tt is extremely important that you as responsible gun owners take action against the constant attacks on the second amendment. Sharing a post on social media is not enough. Write your representatives, call them, make sure your voice is heard! Get up from your desk and go vote in elections. If your not registered to vote go get that shit squared away! Make sure these idiots aren’t afforded the chance to infringe on your rights. The other side is doing it make sure you are too!
Heres a question for the Anti Gun crowd. Why arent the already existing 20k gun laws stopping criminals?
