Surprise: NJ Wants To Go After NRA And Gun Friendly States

Once again, Democrats show their true colors. Instead of going after people who use firearms unlawfully along with implementing laws that make it even harder for criminals to not be able to purchase firearms, and putting big, big penalties on criminals who possess them and use them, NJ Dems are considering assaulting the 1st Amendment Rights of the NRA and the U.S. citizens who are members

( Democratic lawmakers want to take the state’s tight gun control laws and expand them outside of New Jersey’s borders.

There’s new legislation that would ban state-sponsored travel to any states that don’t require their residents to obtain a permits before they purchase a firearm.

The goal is to send a message to the National Rifle Association, said State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, the bill’s sponsor.

“Fighting the NRA on the basis logic and rational thinking has not worked,” Weinberg, D-Bergen, said. “So I think the thing that might work is fighting them with their pocketbook.”

Let me ask: how has all that gun control worked in New Jersey? It is considered to be one of the most restrictive states in the nation, yet, gun crime still occurs. A lot. Because most of the laws are aimed at law abiding citizens, not criminals. And meant to turn law abiding citizens into criminals.

And meant to go after the Free Speech rights of U.S. citizens.

If enacted, state-sponsored travel for public workers and elected officials would be banned in 37 states, according to state licensing data from the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

It’s unclear if the legislation would require New Jersey’s governor to abide by the rule if it becomes law, Weinberg said. But she said she hopes Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, would “honor it” if it clears the Democrat-controlled state Legislature and he signs it into law.

Yeah, that ought to do it. “Oh, noes, a few people from NJ might not come to our state. What shall we do?????1???”

Murphy has promised to sign the bills, including one to reduce magazine capacity, another to ban armor-piercing bullets, another to make it tougher to obtain a permit to carry a handgun, another to expand background checks on private gun sales, and two to keep firearms out of the hands of people deemed a threat to themselves and others in the state.

NJ is already at a maximum of 15 rounds for magazines. I guess they want to play the 10 rounds game. But, more importantly, they want to make it harder for law abiding citizens to protect themselves. Really, none of this is aimed at criminals. Even the last one, about being threats to themselves and others, is more about getting creative about seizing firearms than taking them from criminals.

Meanwhile, Murphy slipped a provision to tax guns in his budget. He promised to do this as a gubernatorial candidate. There aren’t any real details, but he expects to raise $1.4 million per year. A straight purchase tax would equate to about $777 dollars per firearm. Again, this is something that goes after the law abiding, not the criminals.

  1. I am all in favor of NJ limiting their state-sponsored travel to other states. Anything that saves the taxpayers there from funding a boondoggle or two is a good thing. A shame they wouldn’t consider expanding it to all state sponsored travel outside the state.

    NJ isn’t going to be satisfied with these results either. They should just pass a law forbidding NJ people from going to those states. That will be hard to monitor, so maybe they need a fence or something and passports they can show to demonstrate their travel is state approved.

    I certainly don’t want New Jersey people moving to Virginia and bringing their foolishness with them.

    As a Kentuckian, I’m proud to stand up for the Commonwealth and say, OK, great, fine, we don’t need y’all here anyway.

    Of course, the blue states all think that the middle of America is nothing but flyover country anyway.

    I must have blinked for the fraction of a second that they tried it.

    Actually, violent crime in NJ is much lower than the national average. Of all the states, NJ has the 6th FEWEST deaths per person by firearms, with only Massachusetts, Connecticut, Hawaii, NY and Rhode Island with fewer (mean = 4.4/100,000). Alaska, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma have the greatest number of firearms deaths per person (mean = 21.1/100,000), or nearly five TIMES higher than the bottom 6.

    See a pattern?

      States are categorized from highest rate to lowest rate. Although adjusted for differences in age-distribution and population size, rankings by state do not take into account other state specific population characteristics that may affect the level of mortality. When the number of deaths is small, rankings by state may be unreliable due to instability in death rates.

      Mislead much, little nignoramous?

          #1. St. Louis, Missouri
          Murder rate per 100k people: 59.29

          Number of reported murders (2015): 188

          Population: 317,095

          Nice little shithole of a city ya got there, little nignorant one.

            We’re not surprised you wish to change the subject, once you were caught in a lie (again).

          • Jeffery says:

            Why do you think Red states have so many more gun deaths than Blue states?

          • Jeffery says:

            According to NRA/GOP/Con dogma, fewer guns should lead to MORE deaths by guns, ’cause bad guys will run rampant. Maybe Blue states are just more civilized than Red states.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Well, you were squawking about murder rates.
            Probably to difficult for a nignorant to figure out how stats from shitholes like St. Louis or Baltimore or Detroit skewer the murder rates for entire states.
            Guess you can’t quite comprehend the notes from the study you cited, ya little dumbfvck.

          • Hoss says:

            So, you mean all we have to do to keep people from Jersey out of our state is to pass less-restrictive gun laws?

    My response is that I refuse to go or through NJ for any reason – period.

    I get 4-5, possibly more, calls each year for contracts in NJ.

    Now I will just refuse any contracts not only in NJ but coming from companies or agencies who are located in NJ. They may find other people but it won’t be me.

    As it goes now, and I have done this, I refuse to drive through NJ to any of the New England states or back.

    It is easier, less time and money consuming to travel through PA then across NY to avoid NJ.

    But as of now I can’t think of any state north of NJ except on that I would want to work in anyway.

    I have already warned many people to avoid NJ, now it is all people.
