The anti-gun politicians that control the New Jersey Legislature are racing to get a magazine and gun ban on Gov. Chris Christie’s desk.

A bill that bans magazines over 10 rounds and classifies .22-caliber tube-fed youth rifles as “assault firearms” could hit the governor’s desk as soon as March 27, according to the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs, which is the state’s affiliate for the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Scott Bach, the executive director of the gun rights club, thinks the Democrats who control the Legislature are speeding up the legislative timetable for purely political reasons.

“They want to put Gov. Christie in a corner if he runs for president and keep the negative headlines coming,” Mr. Bach told me Tuesday. “Democrats are intent on delivering this legislation to the governor’s desk, but New Jersey gun owners are tenacious and resisting with everything they’ve got.”

The General Assembly, the lower house, is expected to vote on the bill on Thursday. A committee had one public hearing March 13, but disregarded the protests from gun owners in passing the bill along party lines.

A Senate committee is scheduled to hold its one public hearing on Monday. It is expected to pass and then could be on the Senate floor by March 27.  The state’s Legislature typically goes on a “budget recess” in April.

The question all gun owners in the Garden State are asking is whether Mr. Christie will sign the bill into law or veto the most extremist gun-control measures, as he did last summer.

“We don’t know,” Mr. Bach, the NRA affiliate’s spokesman conceded. “Last year’s vetoes show that he knows the difference between feel-good proposals that do nothing and laws that actually get the bad guys, so we are hopeful that he will continue to make that distinction.”

    “Only Chris Christie Can Stop”

    Maybe because of time limits, but THIS, the highest law of the state of New Jersey – EXCEPT where it conflicts with the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it – says otherwise. The people of New Jersey can stop it at anytime IF they will start to exercise their power. Of course that does require reading the US Constitution and the New Jersey Constitution. Then making EVERY Governor of the state of New Jersey enforce Article V, Executive, Section I, 12 “… He shall be the Commander-in-Chief of all the military and naval forces of the State. He shall grant commissions to all officers elected or appointed pursuant to this Constitution” and “Section III
    1. Provision for organizing, inducting, training, arming, disciplining and regulating a militia shall be made by law, which shall conform to applicable standards established for the armed forces of the United States.” Plus enforce this also “2. The Governor shall nominate and appoint all general and flag officers of the militia, with the advice and consent of the Senate. All other commissioned officers of the militia shall be appointed and commissioned by the Governor according to law.”

    New Jersey State Constitution (Updated through amendments adopted in Nov 2013)

    A Constitution agreed upon by the delegates of the people of New Jersey, in Convention, begun at Rutgers University, the State University of New Jersey, in New Brunswick, on the twelfth day of June, and continued to the tenth day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty-seven.

Caps are mine to emphasis WHO made the government of New Jersey and are their bosses.)

    6. Every person may freely speak, write and publish his sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right. No law shall be passed to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech or of the press. In all prosecutions or indictments for libel, the truth may be given in evidence to the jury; and if it shall appear to the jury that the matter charged as libelous is true, and was published with good motives and for justifiable ends, the party shall be acquitted; and the jury shall have the right to determine the law and the fact.

    7. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated; and no warrant shall issue except upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the papers and things to be seized.

He shall grant commissions to all officers elected or appointed pursuant to this Constitution. He shall nominate and appoint, with the advice and consent of the Senate, all officers for whose election or appointment provision is not otherwise made by this Constitution or by law. (That would mostly be the Militia)
