In anticipation of proposed New Jersey legislation limiting magazine capacity, ANJRPC has joined a federal legal challenge to "large capacity" magazine bans currently pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. 

Duncan v. Becerra made headlines back in July when a U.S. District Court judge temporarily blocked a California law banning and confiscating firearms magazines holding over 10 rounds of ammunition. Currently on appeal to the infamous Ninth Circuit, the case is already deep in the federal court pipeline and poised to head toward the U.S. Supreme Court. 

By joining a federal magazine ban case already in progress, ANJRPC is ahead of the curve and helping to defeat hardware bans in advance of new legislation in the Garden State.

As the new legislative session begins in the Garden State, gun owners are already starting to react to the flurry of anti-gun bill introductions in Trenton. 

In an exclusive interview with Cam Edwards on NRA TV (click here to view), ANJRPC Executive Director and NRA Board Member Scott Bach sorts out fact from fiction and discusses the importance of strategic opposition to legislation.

Among other things, Bach discusses the importance of focusing the collective power of gun owners like a laser, when and where it is needed most, rather than dissipating gun owner energy by uncoordinated or ill-timed effort.

 

The following is reprinted from Scott Bach's Executive Director Message in the January-February issue of ANJRPC Member Magazine News & Briefs.

November's election outcome couldn't have been much worse. A national wave of pent-up liberal frustration swept over both New Jersey and Virginia. It was made worse in the Garden State by the vengeance of unions and other key voting blocs hurt by Governor Christie. The end result was loss of the governorship, larger anti-gun majorities in the legislature, and an election night nail-biter for some pro-gun incumbents from traditionally safe districts. 

And now, the aftermath. Higher taxes, impending sanctuary statehood, a taxpayer-funded state bank, and yes - a full frontal assault on the Second Amendment, euphemistically styled as a "conversation" about "common sense gun safety laws." But there will be no conversation, no common sense, and it won't be about gun safety - it will be about targeting the gun rights of honest citizens instead of punishing violent criminals.

We're going to see an aggressive push to limit magazine capacity, ban large caliber firearms, activate the "smart gun" law, tax gun ownership, regulate ammunition, reverse Governor Christie's carry improvements, mandate training, and all manner of schemes and contrivances to limit Second Amendment rights, and to harass and demonize law-abiding gun owners. What we won't see is any meaningful effort to severely punish violent gun criminals, or end the catch-and-release justice system that puts them back out on the street.

New Jersey's gun ban extremists are going to unleash eight years of pent-up frustration in a torrent of attacks that will rival what we saw in 2013. Except this time, the new Governor is all too willing to sign whatever comes his way.

New Jersey gun owners survived Governors Florio, McGreevey, and Corzine. Somehow, we will survive Governor Murphy too, but it's going to take everything we've got - everything. It's going to take our time, our energy, our faith, and our resources. We'll have to do battle publicly, privately, in the media, and in the courts. We'll have to persevere when it seems hopeless, fight when it seems unwinnable, and march fearlessly into battle, over and over, with the odds stacked badly against us.

New Jersey gun owners have done it before, and now we have no choice but to do it again. You have a critical role in these upcoming battles, and that is to make your voice heard, long and loud, throughout the entire process, even when it seems futile (it's not). 

Those who won't see the light must be made to feel the heat - they must be made to understand that we will not give up, we will resist them at every turn, they will have to work hard to gain every inch, and then they will have to work even harder to defend their gains. 

A battle unlike any other is about to unfold. Get ready to Stand and Fight.

                                  ANJRPC President Kathy Chatterton at the Association’s Annual Meeting Oct. 15

In an unprecedented event, Lieutenant Governor Kim Gaudagno delivered the keynote address to multiple standing ovations at ANJRPC’s 81st annual meeting and luncheon on Sunday, October 15 at the Grand Summit Hotel in Summit. Guadagno is the Republican candidate for Governor in the November 7 election.

“The Lieutenant Governor’s historic appearance marks the first time that a high-level member of the New Jersey executive branch has addressed an annual meeting of law-abiding gun owners,” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach. “We are grateful to Lieutenant Governor Guadagno for making this bold public statement of support of firearms owners and the Second Amendment.”

ANJRPC was inundated with media inquiries about the Lieutenant Governor’s appearance, with one reporter even attempting to gain entry to the meeting despite it being closed to the press.

The meeting was attended by an enthusiastic crowd, including other elected officials and candidates for office. ANJRPC President Kathy Chatterton led the meeting off with a discussion of the Association’s activities and achievements over the past year.

Along with other reports provided by ANJRPC officers and committee chairs, several special reports were given. NRA-ILA Grassroots Coordinator Christian Ragosta outlined what the NRA is doing for New Jersey, including hiring several full-time staff in New Jersey to coordinate grassroots activities leading up to November 7.

Also giving special reports were ANJRPC lobbyist Rob Nixon who presented a legislative report summarizing the current political climate in Trenton, attorney Dan Schmutter who provided updates on the ANJRPC’s Permitting StrikeForce™ and several cases related to gun rights in New Jersey. Assemblyman Anthony Bucco (R25) took the podium to urge attendees to support pro-2A candidates statewide. Other public officials in attendance included Freeholders Deborah Smith (Morris County) and George Graham (Sussex County). Following the reports, the meeting was opened to the audience for a lively Q&A session.

In her keynote address, Lieutenant Governor Guadagno discussed New Jersey Second Amendment issues and a variety of other issues, including taxes, healthcare, banking, and other matters affecting residents of the state.
