NJ governor signs harsher law
And calls for more.
Scott Bach of the New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs misses the point. Restricting law abiding gun owners while leaving the lawbreakers to buy whatever they wish is called professional courtesy.

Corzine was noted as saying he wanted NJ to be the first gun free state.
As for crimes committed with what NJ defines as AWs...other than merely having one...that would be zero, zip, nada, AFAIK.
Every time I read something like this, I keep thinking "sooner or later, we're going to have to blow the bridges and mine the river, or at the very least setup passport checkpoints." (The eastern border of PA is the natural barrier of the Delaware river)

And yet the crowd here will keep bitching about California...

I am from NJ and believe me California has little on NJi in this respect and at least it has better weather. Even NY as a state is better because it is divided in two, upstate and NYC.

If he really wants a gun free state he needs to disarm all LEO's and shut down all military facilities in NJ.
Somehow, I think he is a liar. He likes guns, he loves guns, he adores guns, but only guns in service to him.

That's because nobody ever said: "As New Jersey goes, so goes the nation." Everybody, and I mean everybody, knows that Jersey sucks. It is California that still tries to con everybody into thinking it is the Golden State.

Yes, and I pray this tired shibboleth will soon go the way of the dinosaur.
I'm lovin' the budget problems of this dysfunctional piece of crap called a "state".
Starve the beast!
