State Goes After BB Guns: “Young Kids Can Get A Felony Charge And Their Lives Are Basically Over”

In New Jersey, an unregistered BB gun could mean jail time.

That’s right…a BB gun. That iconic, much-desired gift from the movie,  A Christmas Story. Apparently the government is just as deeply concerned about the potential of someone putting an eye out with a BB gun as Ralphie’s mother was. They are so concerned that if you don’t register your air gun, pellet gun, or BB gun, you could go directly to jail. Do not stop, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

The Graves Act is the primary statute that forms the spine of New Jersey’s oppressive gun control laws. It requires a minimum term of imprisonment and ineligibility for the violation of gun laws, even for first time offenders. Children are not exempt – they too are subject to strict punishment under the harsh gun control law. Punishable violations under the act include:

  • Unlawful Possession of a Machine Gun, Handgun, Rifle or Shotgun, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-5(a), (b) or (c).
  • Possession of a Sawed-Off Shotgun, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-3(b).
  • Possession of a Defaced Firearm, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-3(d).
  • Possession of a Firearm While in the Course of Committing a Drug Distribution or Possession With Intent to Distribute Offense, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-4.1(a).
  • Possession of Certain Weapons by Persons Previously Convicted of Specified Offenses, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-7(a) or (b)(2).
  • The Manufacture, Transport, or Disposition of a Machine Gun, Sawed-Off Shotgun, or Assault Firearm, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-9(a), (b), or (g).
  • The Defacement of a Firearm, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-9(e). (source)

    How about a law for the prosecution of violation of the Constitutions Bill of Rights.
    Sentenced to death by hanging from the closest lamp post to the Court House steps, with all law books which violate the Constitution tied to the perpetrators feet.
    This is a Law I would like to see “enforced”. I would expect to see a high compliance rate too! Some day…

    When they easily make our children criminals to take their rights to self defense away, what stops them from teaching 2+3=4?

    Walter Butts,
    In answer to your question: “When they easily make our children criminals to take their rights to self defense away, what stops them from teaching 2+3=4?”
    When enough uncritical, unquestioning minds accept others points of views as gospel, truth can be reversed, hidden or adapted. Global warming is happening, say many “scientists, and Al Gore, even though global temperatures paused for a few years and now have started to decrease. Why do people believe this obvious fallacy? Those who create the meme always have a particular agenda. Look at who benefits, either financially or through increased power, or prestige, and HOW they achieve that benefit, and the truth becomes apparent. The goal of those who produce false memes is to manipulate the perception of reality to further their agenda.
