On Monday, May 5, the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 993.  Sponsored by state Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37), S.993 seeks to restrict the maximum capacity of ammunition magazines from 15 to 10 rounds and ban many popular firearms.  Under the guise of public safety, anti-gun politicians continue their efforts to erode the Second Amendment rights of New Jersey residents.  New Jersey is one of only a few states which already has a magazine restriction, and another arbitrary limit will have no impact on crime or criminals.  Instead, this legislation demonstrably favors criminals who prefer to prey on unarmed victims.

NRA members are urged to attend this Senate committee hearing and respectfully voice their opposition.  Hearing information is provided below:

Monday, May 5, at 10:30 a.m.
Committee Room 10
State House Annex
