New Jersey bans Bump Stocks

N.J. bans gun device used in Las Vegas shooting after Christie signs bill

http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2018/01/nj_bans_gun_device_used_in_las_vegas_shooting_afte.html

It's now illegal in New Jersey to sell or posses a "bump stock," the controversial firearm accessory allegedly used by the gunman in last year's Las Vegas massacre.

Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican set to leave office Tuesday, signed a Democratic-sponsored bill Monday outlawing the devices, which can be affixed to semiautomatic riffles to allow them to fire bullets, mimicking automatic weapons.

Christie -- who took action on more than 150 bills on his final full day in office -- made no statement on the legislation (S3477/A5200), which takes effect immediately.

Anyone who owns a bump stock or "trigger crank" now has 90 days -- until April 15 -- to surrender the accessories to law enforcement authorities. Retailers who sell them have 30 days.

Sale or possession of a bump stock is now a third-degree crime that carries a sentence of three-to-five years in prison, a fine of up to $15,000, or both.


Good for NJ!

6. No, that's BS. If a person damages someone

else's property or hurts or kills someone else, then go ahead and use existing laws to charge them criminally or file a civil suit. But if somebody wants to waste a bunch of ammo pretending they've got a machine gun and aren't hurting anyone else, then I don't care and the government shouldn't either.

It's not like there aren't any real problems to work on: crumbling public infrastructure, environmental degradation, too many poorly-performing schools, people dropping dead of fentanyl overdoses, etc, etc, etc.
