New Jersey Measures Would Shut Down Ranges, Clubs And New Shooters

posted on December 3, 2016

New Jersey legislators are promoting a sweeping new scheme that would prevent citizens from shooting at ranges without a state-issued firearms ID card. This would not only prohibit prospective gun owners from even trying the sport, but would also likely force the closing of the majority of N.J. ranges and gun clubs. 

This overreaching attack on shooting ranges and clubs is thinly disguised as “suicide prevention.” How it will prevent suicides at gun ranges is murky, but the widespread negative impact on N.J. citizens is covered in this comprehensive post on Ammoland.com.

USE YOUR POWER!

The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC), the official NRA State Association, is calling on residents to contact the members of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee NOW to urge them to oppose A4179 and A4180. They should also plan to attend the Committee’s hearing on the bills at the New Jersey State House Annex on Monday, Dec. 5 at 2 p.m. To find contact information for the members of the Law and Public Safety Committee, click here.
