Anti-Range Legislation Pulled From New Jersey Committee Agenda

Thanks to your calls and emails, two anti-gun range measures were removed from the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee’s agenda for next week. 

The bills are A.4179 and A.4180, both sponsored by Assemblyman Ralph Caputo. As written, these measures require target shooters to produce a state issued ID along with an FID card or a purchase permit before using a range.

While A.4179 and A.4180 might have been removed from Monday's agenda, these bills are by no means dead. Opposition from gun owners has resulted in the bills being held for further discussion. NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action will continue to follow the situation.
