N.J. Legislature Moves Forward On Anti-Gun Measures

posted on May 7, 2016

On Thursday, the New Jersey Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee voted along a 3-2 party line vote to pass Senate Concurrent Resolution 101—a measure vigorously opposed by NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. 

A few weeks ago, the state attorney general issued a directive that took steps toward fixing some of the rampant abuses with New Jersey gun laws. The executive action clarified the “justifiable need” standard for concealed-carry permit issuance and the reasonable “deviation” language with regard to firearm transportation. 

Undeterred by the Garden State’s failed, draconian gun laws, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg quickly introduced SCR 101 to block the recent improvements made by executive action.
