Feel free to steal or imitate - and send to all State Senators today!!!
Well we have now seen that the NJ Assembly is filled with mostly liars out to better their lot by pandering to special interest groups. The less than honorable Ass. Greenwald should be publicly humiliated for the disgrace he presides over. He has the audacity to get up on the floor and blatantly lie, introducing “facts” that are anything but facts. His, and Senator Sweeney’s, use of parents that lost their children as props to further their anti-citizen agenda is a total farce. While we feel for anyone that lost a loved one; the fact that they suffered in no way makes them experts on anything. In fact, it makes them nothing but emotional pawns for arguments that are far from fact based. If we look at the facts, which our lying representatives don’t know or won’t admit we find that Adam Lanza used 30 round magazines, further he reloaded long before they were empty. What this says is that neither 15 round magazines (which are the NJ limit) nor mini 10 round magazines would have had any impact on anything. Those are the facts. Thus, they are using these lies to harm honest citizens while giving criminals a further advantage – shame on them.
Further, they provide ZERO evidence, not one single case where in NJ if a gunman had fewer rounds it would have impacted anything. Why, because ammunition capacity has never been an issue in NJ. This is because criminals come prepared with many magazines, many guns, and in the case of gangs many shooters. The scared homeowner who is awoken from a sound sleep to find three bad guys with guns in his home has only what the gun he grabs is loaded with. If this bill becomes law honest homeowners will die, maybe not immediately – but mark my words it will happen. These deaths will be on the hands of Greenwald and Sweeney and any of their club of liars that vote for this.
Greenwald further lied when he claimed this illegal taking of property with no compensation from the state will have minimal impact on gun owners. He falsely claims that magazines only cost $13. If that is the case I suggest that he sell every gun owner in the state replacement magazines and eat any overage out of his own pocket. That overage will be in excess of $100 million dollars. The cheapest magazine I ever bought was $30, with most being $40 or more. Further, due to limited production and demand, 10 round magazines generally cost significantly more than 15 round magazines. Lastly, there is almost no market to sell used 15 round magazines into, and if there were you might get about $5 – so this just steals money from legal citizens – shame on you!!!
If our representatives in Trenton wanted to do something to reduce gun violence they would table this stupid proposal and do something to go after the people that commit gun violence. I propose they mandate strict prison terms for anyone that uses a gun against another human in a non-defensive shooting. How about a mandatory 1 year in prison for each and every bullet fired in a criminal episode. While that might not stop all criminals, at least it would get them off the streets so they could not shoot honest citizens like what happened at the Short Hills Mall. Why do they only talk about Sandy Hook not Short Hills? Is it because their current gun laws only stop law abiding citizens from legally carrying concealed guns while allowing criminals to do so with almost total impunity?
Any honest person that looks at facts, not emotions, would see that those in the Trenton State House are dead wrong on this issue.
