 7 ANTI GUN BILLS PASS SENATE COMMITTEE
AS GUN OWNERS‎ PUSH BACK
 

April 16‎ -- All seven anti-gun bills up in the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee were passed this afternoon, after a marathon 5-hour hearing in a packed meeting room. The media was also present for much of the hearing.

Numerous gun owners attended, many of whom testified passionately against the measures, along with gun rights leaders. Anti-gun organizations and activists were also out in force.

Several of the bills were amended at the hearing, with no advance notice or an opportunity to review the text. ANJRPC is currently analyzing the amendments and will provide further updates (one of the amendments affects the magazine ban). Additionally, several committee members stated that they would like to see further amendments to some of the bills in response to gun owner testimony.

Reminder: none of these bills have been enacted into law at this point. In order to become a law, legislation must first be passed by both houses of the legislature (after being heard in committee) and then be signed by the governor. So far, the package of 6 anti gun bill has passed the full Assembly and today passed through Senate committee. The next step in the process is for the full Senate to vote on the bills. The earliest that could occur is June 7th under the current anticipated schedule.

Anti-gun activists pressured the committee to move the legislation along more quickly, claiming that June 7th was not soon enough for them.

ANJRPC is monitoring the situation closely. Please watch for further updates and alerts.
