URGENT ACTION REQUIRED: NJ Governor Murphy Wants More Gun Control
On December 20, 2021, the New Jersey State Senate and General Assembly held separate marathon floor votes in order to get several legislative priorities passed. While a couple of pieces of gun control were unfortunately approved in the General Assembly last night, the majority of Governor Phil Murphy's gun control package was pushed off until at least January. According to Speaker Coughlin, that delay is to give the Senate enough time to get on board with advancing Governor Murphy's agenda.
As a reminder, Gov. Murphy's gun control wishlist includes, but may not be limited to, the following ideas:
- Require mandatory firearm training (A. 5030/S. 2169) DELAYED
- Mandatory storage requirements (A.5647/S. 3757) DELAYED
- Ban .50 caliber firearms (A. 1280/S. 103) DELAYED
- Restrictions/registration on imported out-of-state firearms (A.3686/S. 372) DELAYED
- Establish electronic ammunition sales records for law enforcement (A. 1292/S. 1481) DELAYED
- Promote microstamping technology (A. 5787/S.3826) DELAYED
- Regulate school shooting drills (A. 5727/S. 3726) PASSED GENERAL ASSEMBLY 12/20/21
- Attacks on lawful gun businesses via public nuisance laws (A. 6218) PASSED GENERAL ASSEMBLY 12/20/21
