New Jersey Adjustment To “Smart” Gun Mandate Passes Assembly

posted on January 13, 2016

In an attempt to salvage the disaster that has been New Jersey’s “smart gun” law, legislators have passed a bill that would require firearms retailers to offer such guns (alongside traditional firearms) within three years of the technology being developed and marketed. The version of this law currently on the books calls on sellers to only offer “smart guns” within the three-year timeframe.

While the weakened version of the law is less insane than its predecessor, the NRA firmly opposes any legal mandate related to the technology and wants to see the law scrapped altogether. The office of Gov. Chris Christie has not commented as to whether he plans to veto the bill.
