New Jersey Introduces 18 Civilian Disarmament Bills


We won’t know what’s in the Garden State gun grabbers’ bills until later today. But Rob Eichmann [via] reports that NJ Democrats have introduced 18—count ’em 18—gun control bills yesterday. [Full list after the jump] As our tipster pointed out, even the names are scary: “A-3676 Requires psychological evaluation and in-home inspection as prerequisite to purchase firearm.” Clearly, no matter what happens or, preferably, doesn’t happen with gun control at the federal level, the lights (of liberty) are going out all over the Northeast. Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island legislatures are scrambling to implement post-Sandy Hook civilian disarmament legislation. Illinois residents are FAR from safe, and gun owners living within liberal enclaves within red states (e.g., Denver) are also at risk of losing some if not all of their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. The battle for firearms freedom is joined. Again. Still.
