    NJ: Bill Compromise To Cap Magazines At 10 Rounds But Allow Shooters To Stop For Coffee






    Via Guns
    A deal has been made in the New Jersey legislature on two bills, a pro-gun control bill that would ban all magazines larger than ten rounds and a pro-gun bill that would allow gun owners, hunters, sportsmen to stop on the way to the range or woods for food, emergencies or other “reasonable” stops.
    The magazine limit bill, formally titled A2006 (pdf) , would limit magazine size to no more than ten rounds and was introduced by Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-Camden) in January.
    The same bill was submitted to the New Jersey Assembly and passed last year, but was defeated in the state Senate when Senate president Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester) blocked it from a vote.
    However this session Sweeny has agreed to let the bill run its course in return for passage of a pro-gun bill that would allow shooters who are transiting from home to a shooting range to stop for “reasonable deviations,” which are currently not allowed.
    What are “reasonable deviations?”
    Well, according to the measure, stops for “collecting and discharging passengers; purchasing fuel, food and beverages, medicine or other supplies; use of a restroom; or contending with an emergency situation.”
    “We’ve been part of this discussion and we’ve always said there has to be a limit on magazine size,” said Greenwald, the sponsor of the mag-limit bill. “There is a position now that everyone is comfortable with that will allow the passage of both bills.”

    I'm not the smartest yet I realize that bill is not sufficient. It should require gun owners to have current and verifiable vehicle maintenance records as well as run-flat tires.

    They wouldn't do this without good reason, guys!!!
    By cutting X amount from their current capacity limits, it would stand to reason that they would also see a reduction by the same amount in all gun crime in the state as well....Duh!!!! :beat:

    They will "let" you stop for coffee or take a leak? Well I guess that makes it all good then... Wait, do you have to get a hall pass first?

    Maybe this explains how it got to this point
