NJ case strikes gun rationing
Scott Bach reports on it. The court found that that the Jersey City statute failed the "rational basis" test, which is pretty hard to flunk.
According to our friends, the Gun Guys, New Jersey passed the gun rationing bill A339.

I was very surprised to see any kind of pro-gun owner decision coming out of New Jersey. Unfortunately, I am not surprised to see the People's Legislature of the Demoktratik Republic of New Jersey act swiftly to overcome it.
I say this a someone born and raised in NJ; lived there for 35 years before getting the hell out and moving to VA - where the damn libs are starting to try to do some of the same inane jackass things here...

The article doesn't say what the monthly purchase limitation was, but I still think one firearm a month is a worthy goal for me for the next 12 months.

A339 passed the assembly and now goes to the senate. I have no clue what the chances are for killing it. It started as a way of banning .50 caliber guns and had many other things tacked on, such as limiting handgun sales to once a month. Getting 'permission' to purchase a handgun in NJ is an trial of patience and persistence so the bill codifies the reality.
