  1. Very interesting, thanks! It seems the case is remanded back to the district court. Poor guy (in more ways than one.) It will be another three years before a final resolution is reached.
  2. Referenced in other threads is a news/law story about the LAPD's overreaching to seize firearms: http://michellawyers.com/former-police-officer-files-racketeering-lawsuit-against-los-angeles-police-department/ http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Complaint.pdf http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/08/johannes-paulsen/ca-vet-seeks-justice-after-lapd-destroys-his-700k-gun-collection/ The story came out in 2015 but I can't find anything newer about how the case was adjudicated. Does anyone know more about this lawsuit? I am curious about such cases but often there is little followup after the initial court filing, especially if a lawsuit went against the gun control people.
  3. After over a year since planning approval, Reloaderz NJ's range in Wayne seems to be on its way. It is located at the old Fuddrucker's site on Rt. 23 South. Construction has been slow but a new sign promising "coming soon" has been erected. Their website had little information but they are accepting emails for notifications when they are open for business. I live very close but I'm worried they will be as expensive as GFH in Woodland Park. Here's hoping...
  4. Never run a propane heater (of any type) indoors or even in an open garage. CO kills silently. On this topic, make sure your CO and smoke detectors are always working and have spare batteries. Running a generator near your house for hours at a time requires good CO monitoring.
  5. Can ordinary N.J. (non-FFL) folk sell magazines on eBay? I have bought a couple on eBay and I have several 15's I'd rather sell so I have the means to buy 10's
  6. I may have found some answers applying to the old law rulemaking by the NJSP. http://www.state.nj.us/lps/rules/njsp/rp010702a.htm One part says: "N.J.A.C. 13:54-1.2 is amended to clarify that the definition of a large capacity ammunition magazine does not include an ammunition magazine that has been permanently altered so that it is not capable of holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition. The definition is further amended to include an ammunition magazine which has been temporarily blocked from holding more than 15 rounds, as by a piece of wood or a pin."
  7. Reading the bill/statute it seems only LEO, RLEO and FFL's can posses "high capacity" magazines. Other than the Marlin .22LR exception, regular people cannot possess any mag over 10 rounds. There is no grandfather clause or exception for those of us (most of us?) who already own mags > 10 rounds.
  8. As with most N.J. owners, the new law reducing max magazine capacity from 15 to 10 rounds affects me the most. The question(s) I have concern the legality and practicality of reducing a magazine capacity to 10 rounds to be in compliance with the law. Reading many forums and opinions I can't get a definitive strategy on how I can keep the 15 round mags I already own. All mags accompanied handguns purchased in New Jersey. Now I have less than 180 days to deal with them. My current quandary: Magazines must be permanently modified to limit them to 10 round capacities. California forums seem to indicate that one can rivet, epoxy or weld a block to make a mag legal. However the wording of the new N.J. statute gives me pause. It says: "The bill makes its provisions effective immediately, but allows for a 180-day grace period to transfer, render inoperable, or voluntarily surrender a semi-automatic rifle or magazine that will be unlawful under the bill." Does "render inoperable" include reducing capacity to 10 rounds? Is the high capacity nature of a magazine the aspect that must be inoperable or must the magazine be destroyed altogether? I have gone ahead and ordered mag conversion kits for two of my 9mm mags and will permanently modify them whenever I can find out what that will mean in N.J. My other complaint I will throw out there is the unfortunately lack of 10 round factory magazines in stock. In particular, Walther and Glock mags in low capacity are very hard to find and the situation is likely to worsen now that we are a 10 round state. I also imagine N.J. gun stores will be sending hundreds of 15 round firearms packages back to their distributors. What a mess.
