New Jersey is losing it

Hat tip to the NRA/ILA; the story about State Bill 2810:


bat
NJ BILL WOULD MAKE OWNING A TOY GUN ILLEGAL
bat

BE IT ENACTED by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:

1. A person who sells, transfers or assigns an imitation firearm to a person under 18 years of age commits a disorderly persons offense; provided, however, that the establishment by a preponderance of the evidence of all of the following facts by the person making the sale, transfer or assignment shall constitute an affirmative defense to any prosecution under this section:
a. The purchaser, transferee or assignee represents his age by producing a driver’s license bearing a photograph of the licensee, or by producing some other photographic card purporting to be a valid identification card, indicating that he was 18 years of age or older;
b. The appearance of the purchaser, transferee or assignee was such that an ordinary prudent person would believe him to be 18 years of age or older; and
c. The sale, transfer or assignment was made in good faith relying upon the indicators of age listed in subsections a. and b. of this section.

2. This act shall take effect immediately.”

(An imitation firearm is defined in New Jersey’s firearm statutes as an object or device that is “reasonably capable of being mistaken for a firearm.” Right. Resonable by whom? People stupid enough to try and make this thing into law?)



See, it wasn’t enough to legislate the hell out of actual legal gun ownership. It wasn’t enough to pass laws that BB guns, bows, and even slingshots required a firearms ID to purchase. It wasn’t even enough demanding that all toy guns had a bright orange muzzle, or were only sold in shocking neon colors so that they could never be mistaken for the real thing. Nope, this desparate measure will outlaw even the toy ones, turning your children into criminals liable for a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR fine.


Yeah, this bill will end gang violence alright. God forbid they actually catch the criminals instead. Numbskulls.


I wonder if water pistols fall under this asinine agenda? Wait, discharge of a water pistol is probably already an egregious waste of water, which would violate all the drought induced water restriction laws the state operates under most of the time. This state is loonie land.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
