New Jersey’s Latest Gun Control Shenanigans

Published

on

New Jersey gun grabbers are not satisfied.

Even after Governor Phil Murphy signed comprehensive gun control into law, local gun grabbers in New Jersey are working hard to make it impossible for law-abiding citizens to acquire firearms.

A suburb of New Brunswick recently passed a resolution maintaining its anti-gun zoning codes.

“The resolution bans gun stores from opening within 1,000 feet of schools, parks, health   care facilities, and other sensitive locations. While the new zoning law does not explicitly forbid gun stores from opening in the suburb, it makes dealers subject to conditions that  almost no location meets.”

These type of zoning ordinances are not novel developments. California already has 24 municipalities featuring these anti-gun ordinances. Even New Jersey’s next-door neighbor, New York, has two cities with anti-gun zoning codes.

New Jersey is already one of the most anti-gun states in the country with Guns and Ammo magazine ranking it at a dismal 48th place.

Part of a larger scheme to destroy Second Amendment rights, gun controllers are looking to implement de facto gun bans where gun rights supporters least expect it.

Outright gun bans will draw out the most fervent gun rights supporters in opposition.

Nevertheless, a backdoor gun ban can slip under the public’s radar and get rammed through legislatures with very little opposition.

Given the Left’s dissatisfaction with the Trump administration on gun policy, the most logical course of action for them is to go local.

The rise of progressivism has been a story of big government activists operating locally but thinking globally. When they can’t get desired policies at the federal level, they will look to state legislatures instead.

States like New Jersey serve as launchpads for much larger anti-gun experiments further down the line.

The gun control beast’s thirst can’t be quenched once one state falls to anti-gun trickery.

Soon, all states look like juicy prospects in the gun controller’s eyes.

In times where gun control advocates are willing to go the extra mile to advance their anti-gun crusade, gun owners can’t afford to rest on their laurels.

There are no breaks in the fight to preserve American liberties.

LA County Sheriff Wanted to Ban Gun Sales After He Released Criminals Early, But Got SHUT DOWN

The Sheriff’s gun store closure was shut down.

Published

on

The Sheriff of Los Angeles County is ordering all gun stores in his jurisdiction to close as part of the state’s crackdown on public activity in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic. He’s also releasing more than 1,000 non-violent offenders from the county’s jail system.

Villanueva doesn’t seem to have let up on anti-gun sentiment as the concerned public seeks to arm themselves in unprecedented numbers. He earlier called the notion of purchasing a gun in the midst of the epidemic a “bad idea,” stating that the general public couldn’t be trusted to posses guns safely while they’re restricted to their homes in quarantine.

It wasn’t enough for him to merely discourage the public from arming themselves. As of Tuesday, the sheriff has ordered all of the gun stores in his county to close as nonessential businesses. Villanueva has been designated as the Director of Emergency Operations by the county, leaving decisions such as gun store openings up to his discretion.

He’s combined his shutdown of gun sales with a release of 1,700 non-violent inmates from county jails.

Villanueva’s combination of a crackdown on legal gun acquisition and the release of real criminals from the justice system seems like a textbook method to inspire concern among the general public, especially considering his sheriff’s department has ceased to make arrests for many petty crimes during the epidemic.

But according to the sheriff, it’s new gun owners who can’t be trusted with responsibility. He slammed other state and county politicians for the handling of the state’s comprehensive shelter-in-place order. He claimed elected officials were undermining his deputies tasked with enforcing the order.

UPDATE:

Villaneuva’s effort to close the county’s gun stores has been shut down upon intervention of the county counsel.

Villaneuva was unapologetic about his move to shut down gun stores in the midst of the pandemic, claiming the surge of new gun owners represented a great danger that necessitated their closure.
