Assembly Bill 2006, sponsored by Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-6), and Senate Bill 993, sponsored by state Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37), both seek to restrict the maximum capacity of ammunition magazines from 15 to 10 rounds and ban many popular firearms.
A.2006 could be voted on in the Assembly as early as this Thursday, March 20. S.993 could be heard in Senate committee as early as Monday, March 24 and then voted on in the state Senate.
Last week, “amendments” to A.2006 passed in the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee.
These amendments supposedly eliminate the bill’s unintended ban on dozens of popular firearms.
However, don’t be fooled by false claims. These new amendments only twist the tangled web of New Jersey’s gun laws further.
As amended, there is zero impact on the legislation’s ban on popular firearms and ammunition.
