New Jersey’s legislature is controlled by anti-gun Democrats who want nothing more than to ban every person in the state is deprived of their constitutional right to own and possess a firearm. With a 54-26 seat majority in the General Assembly and a 25-15 seat majority in the Senate, Democrats are pushing an effort to make gun buy backs to be a mandatory event, to take place at least 9 times per year.
Somehow, New Jersey Democrats believe the best forms of gun control are the ones that have been tried over and over and always prove to be ineffective in reducing or preventing gun violence.
(Bullets First) – New Jersey is one of those states that never met a pointless and ineffective gun control policy it didn’t like. In recent years it was kept in check by the otherwise beach going blowhard, Chris Christie, but even he seemed to think that gun buyback programs were actually worth doing.
But as is often the case, give an inch to rights infringers and they will want to put the bill of rights into the shredder.
In the waning hours of Christie’s tenure the gun control loving pit of vipers that is the NJ Assembly and Senate are seeking control of gun buybacks on the state level, taking it away from the state attorney generals discretion.
Not only are they seeking control of it, they are seeking to make gun buybacks MANDATORY.
The bill (S1154/A2374) requires nine buyback programs a year, has already been passed 52-17-5 by the Assembly and is scheduled for a Senate budget committee vote Thursday. It could then be passed Monday, the last day of the two-year legislative session. The nine buyback would be broken down to three in each section of New Jersey; North, Central and South…
Democrats continue to believe in the myth that disarming the American people will somehow reduce crime, gun violence and mass shootings. They have the notion that every criminal will turn in their guns during the buy backs and they won’t do anything to obtain more guns or commit more crimes, as if they are honest.
