    The Bullet Hole
  1. I know that this bill is a stretch, but could it be possible that this bill goes through? A800 would remove the "Justifiable Need" and replaces it with an approved Safety Course as well as a Use of Force course. It changes the $20 - 2 year fee with a $100 annually fee. And finally it stiffens the laws for crimes committed with firearms. ITS A TRUE COMMON SENSE BILL...That's why I'm skeptical. Here is the link for anyone that wants read it. http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2016/Bills/A1000/800_I1.PDF
  2. I'm not sure if this has already been posted or not, if it has, my apologies. http://www.northjersey.com/news/Pascrell_bill_would_raise_gun_taxes_to_pay_for_law_enforcement.html
  3. These are on my list: Kimber 1911, Colt LE6920, Ruger 10/22 Takedown, Remington 700 .308, AK47.
  4. I use a Remington 870 Express Tactical with Ghost Ring Sights, tri-rail and tactical light with pressure switch on the pump and a 5 round butt sleeve. I actually alternate the ammo. I use 00 buck, slug, 00 buck, slug, etc etc. You can always rack out the round that you don't want to use.
  5. I just sent this email to all the legislators and I attached a PDF of the survey along with it. Dear Legislators, I am writing to you as a law abiding gun owner here in the state of NJ. Currently new gun bills are being proposed which will have no effect on crime but will only hinder law abiding citizens from protecting themselves under the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. It will not only affect law abiding citizens but it will also have no impact or even a negative impact on public safety. I have a attached a survey conducted by PoliceOne. It was conducted by current and retired law enforcement officers, mostly of whom were field officers. As you can see by this survey, if any new restrictive gun laws are passed which affect only the law abiding citizen, will be a hindrance not only to the general public at large but to also local and state law enforcement. I hope that you, as our elected legislators, do the right thing. Do not pass feel good legislation to appease the public. But pass common sense legislation that will actually help to reduce crime, enforce current laws and do not let violent criminals out of jail early. Crimes committed with firearms should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and no plea bargains should be permitted in such crimes. I hope that you actually read my email and review the attached PDF so that you will see that law abiding citizens and law enforcement have a common interest to help reduce crime. Thank you for your time and attention. Sincerely,
  6. I'm going to email this to my elected officials.
  7. Well, looks like they ok'd all of the bills presented. It will have to go to the assembly floor for vote and then to the senate floor for vote before it is presented to the Governor. I guess we'll just have to start flooding his emails, faxes and phones with oposition.
  8. I just heard the whole thing. Sounds like the State was not able to provide a reasonable argument to the "Justifiable Need" clause. Could go either way IMO.
  9. This was my message, and I sent it to all members....stole it from the NRA website. Subject: no more frivolous laws! As your constituent, I strongly urge you to oppose any legislation to ban so-called "assault weapons" and "large" ammunition magazines. A previous ban on these inanimate objects was in effect from 1994-2004 and had no discernible effect on violent crime. In fact, a study of the ban mandated by Congress found: "At best, the assault weapons ban can have only a limited effect on total gun murders, because the banned weapons and magazines were never involved in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders." Tens of millions of Americans choose to own semi-automatic firearms with ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds for the same reason as law enforcement officers: they are effective for self-defense. One never knows how many rounds he or she will need for self-defense or defense of others, or how many criminals may attack. Thus having a firearm that allows its lawful user to discharge multiple shots can often be the difference between life and death. In fact, a number of studies have shown that firearms are used for self-defense hundreds of thousands of times to 2.5 million times annually. This amounts to guns being used 3-5 times more often for self-defense than to commit a crime. Rather than expanding previously failed legislation that won't curb violence, but will affect law-abiding gun owners, I urge you to support legislation to enhance school security and improve our nation’s ailing mental health system. Thank you, [my name]
