No Steps Forward, Two Steps Back

Not Much 2A Here In Sheeple’s Republik Of New Jersey


1. Looming lowered magazine capacity law moves to final Senate vote

[NRA ILA May 5, 2014] Today, the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee passed Senate Bill 993 today on a party line 3 to 2 vote.  As previously reported, S.993 seeks to restrict the maximum capacity of ammunition magazines from 15 to 10 rounds and ban certain popular firearms.  Under the guise of public safety, anti-gun politicians continue their efforts to erode the Second Amendment rights of New Jersey residents.  New Jersey is one of only a few states which already has a magazine restriction, and another arbitrary limit will have no impact on crime or criminals.  Instead, this legislation demonstrably favors criminals who prefer to prey on unarmed victims.

Senate Bill 993 now goes to the Senate floor where it will be scheduled for consideration.  It is now more important than ever to contact your state Senator and respectfully, yet insistently, urge him or her to vote AGAINST S.993.  Contact information for state Senators can be found here.

This is so stupid. Yet one more thoughtless, knee jerk, idiotic, worthless bill, that, if it becomes law, will turn thousands of law-abiding citizens into criminals. It won’t do a thing to limit crime since criminals, by definition, don’t obey the law. But all those semi-automatic .22 rifles with decent sized magazines, even those with tubular magazines, will now become illegal. And this bill has NO grandfather clause. IF WHEN it passes the Senate, and IF it is signed by our “centrist” “Republican” Governor Chris Christie, then all those guns become illegal. Right now the bill is written to specifically focus on semi-automatic firearms ... but once passed, how hard would it be to extend the law to include lever action rifles or even bolt action guns?

And naturally cops and retired cops are excluded from the law. Which irks me even more than the lowered capacity movement itself. Not at all sorry, but cops are no different than anyone else. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. And it is beyond disgusting that any law even be contemplated in America which applies to some people and not to others. One law for everyone. That’s what America is all about. Period.

In a partisan vote of 3-2, the New Jersey Senate Law and Public Safety Committee today passed S993 out of committee despite impassioned testimony from gun owners and Second Amendment leaders who were in attendance.

The legislation now moves to the full Senate for a vote, which could come as soon as May 12. Despite claims to the contrary, unilateral amendments made to S993 fail to remove the bill’s gun ban, which remains intact.

In addition, to add insult to injury, the Committee stubbornly refused to modify A2777 (transportation of firearms) to make a simple, one word amendment to restore judicial discretion on reasonable deviations in firearms transport, instead making the legislation even law worse with an ill-conceived amendment (made without any input from Second Amendment leaders) that would limit reasonable deviations to 15 minutes in duration and further tie the hands of judges when considering individual cases that arise.

The amendment to A2777 demonstrates an astounding lack of vision and utter indifference to the perils faced by legal gun owners as a result of New Jersey’s tangled web of gun laws. The amendment would make the current law even worse than it already is, and represents a squandered opportunity by lawmakers.

How typical. Months ago the word was out that this was a done deal, that the magazine capacity bill would sail through because the new firearms transportation bill made things easier for hunters and shooters passing through the state. Not that either one did a damn thing really for the people living here in the state. But in a perfect Big Bother manner, dirty dog Democrats wrote the transportation bill to make things even worse. So we get screwed on the one side for the “giveback” of being further screwed on the other. Well thanks ever so much. You fargin bastiges. You ice-a-holes.

2. SCOTUS chickens out again, refuses to consider ramifications of their own recent firearms judgements. Hey, this can happen in your state too you know.

Supreme Court declines to review New Jersey’s handgun permit law
The Supreme Court Monday decided once again to stay out of the legal battle over whether some states are too restrictive in issuing permits to carry a handgun outside the home. The justices without comment turned down a request to review whether New Jersey’s law requiring “justifiable need” to get a handgun permit infringes on Second Amendment rights.

The court has not accepted a major gun case since its twin decisions that found there is a right to gun ownership in the home and that it applies to both federal and state government attempts at gun control.

All states allow handguns to be carried outside the home, but some are more restrictive than others. Gun-rights supporters said New Jersey’s law, similar to ones in Maryland, New York and elsewhere, make it nearly impossible for anyone who is not a member of law enforcement to get such a permit.

A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit upheld the law, saying the legislature’s decision was a “presumptively lawful, long-standing regulation and therefore does not burden conduct within the scope of the Second Amendment’s guarantee.”

Bull. Shite. NJ’s “law” is not at all “presumptively lawful”. It is a farce. In theory New Jersey is one of these nebulous “may issue” states, but in practice it is a “never issue” state, UNLESS you are part of the special, superior class of people. Which includes - once again!! - the police, retired police, leading politicians, and significant Democrat Party contributors. So what we have is one law for them, and another law for us. And that is a blanket violation of the Equal Protection clause in the Constitution. Period. Yes, the law is “long standing”. So what? That does not make it right. That merely shows how corruption and inequality has been rampant in this state since ... well, since Colonial times when you come right down to it.

What a bunch of chickenshit commies sit on that bench.

UPDATE: Here’s our next pResident, Hitlery Cliton, on the subject. Because we WANT her, “the smartest woman in the world” to run things [further into the ground] after Obozo leaves the Outhouse White House.

I think again we’re way out of balance. We’ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that almost anybody can have a gun anywhere at any time. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people,” she said.

Got that? The Second Amendment as written. “Shall not be infringed”. Natural law. The essence of free humanity. “Way out of balance”.

Oh yeah. She’s got my vote. For sure. NEVER.

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
