NRA Fights N.J. Magazine Confiscation Plan

The NRA announced last week that it is partnering with the New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs in its legal challenge of the state law that requires that “high-capacity” magazines be destroyed or surrendered.

The lawsuit, filed last week in U.S. District Court, contends that the new law could affect up to a million gun owners and it calls the law unduly restrictive against Second Amendment rights.

“Magazine bans do not deter criminals or improve public safety,” according to NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox. “Instead, they irrationally burden the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”

The law gives affected New Jersey residents 180 days to surrender magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, modify them so they can hold only 10 rounds, or transfer them to someone who lives in a state with friendlier gun laws. After the deadline, anyone caught with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds will be subject to being charged with a crime of the fourth degree that carries a penalty of up to 18 months in prison and $10,000 in fines, or both.
