N.J. “Smart” Gun Mandate Moves Forward

posted on November 19, 2015

A bill requiring New Jersey gun dealers to stock and display so-called “personalized” handguns moved to the full Senate in Trenton for consideration this week. 

The bill, S3249, was introduced last week by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg—who also authored the state’s 2002 “smart” gun law, which has languished for over a decade because no firearm currently available “can only be fired by an authorized or recognized user.” The new measure mandates that once such technology is available, wholesalers and retailers MUST offer it for sale and display it, no matter how expensive, failure-prone and unacceptable to consumers such firearms might prove to be.

Use Your Power!

New Jersey residents, defend your right to defend yourself and your family as you see fit. Contact your state senator in Trenton and urge them to vote NO on S3249 and to vote NO on its “government knows best” dictates. To find your lawmaker, click here.
