New Jersey: One Handgun Per Month Now The Law

“The law will take effect in early January…A task force is reviewing its potential impact and will make recommendations this fall.

“Corzine and gun-control advocates argue that roughly a quarter of what they call ‘crime guns’ recovered in New Jersey come from within the state.  It’s not clear how many of those came from the type of multiple purchases that Corzine wants to stop … Critics say the law would impinge on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens in New Jersey, which already has some of the most strict gun laws in the nation.”

Said Scott Bach, president of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, “Trying to reduce gun crime by rationing guns to law-abiding citizens is as absurd as trying to reduce drunk driving by rationing cars to non-drinkers.”
