    Nj Assembly Committee To Consider Gun Ban!

    Bill is an Attack on Sportsmen, Collectors, and Target Shooters

    The Fifty Caliber Institute has been working the past several days to combat legislation in the Assembly of the state of New Jersey that would ban the .50 BMG caliber. Representatives are already on the ground in Trenton looking to protect your constitutional rights. The FCI has been working in conjunction with the National Rifle Association, the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs, and sportsmen's groups all over that state, but now we're going to need YOUR help.

    On Thursday morning, June 12, the New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider legislation that would ban the purchase, transfer, and inheritance of many popular hunting guns, historical American firearms, and large bore target firearms, based on alleged public safety concerns.

    Touted as a ban on .50 caliber and larger firearms, A2116 assaults New Jersey sportsmen by banning dozens of models of popular hunting guns, including traditional .50 muzzle loaders with synthetic stocks, fiber optic sights, or scopes in lieu of sights. Such guns with sights not actually made of iron are also in question due to A2116's unclear wording. The bill also bans many modern safari rifles and hunting handguns.

    A2116 also bans hundreds of historical American firearms and replicas, including from the Civil War and Revolutionary War eras. A2116 is a slap in the face to collectors, historians, and the patriots who used these firearms to win the very freedoms this legislation now seeks to take away.

    A2116 also wrongly demonizes the .50 BMG rifle, which is not used in criminal activity, but which is regularly used by law abiding citizens for precision target shooting, competition, and collection. The legislation makes the fundamental mistake of banning guns based on the size of the hole in the barrel rather than punishing criminal behavior.

    Not only will .50 caliber owners in New Jersey be affected by such a ban, but those wishing to travel into the state with .50 caliber rifles for competition will no longer be welcome.

    Please immediately email, call, and/or fax the members of the NJ Assembly Judiciary Committee, and urge them to oppose A2116!

    The committee members, their websites, and contact information is below. Please contact them and respectfully request that they reconsider this reckless legislation. Phone calls will have the most immediate impact due to the proximity of the vote.

    Does this apply to 12 gauge shotguns?

    Next year they'll be banning the evil .499BMG. Yes we need to ban those fiber optic sights on firearms. We'll all be much safer without them.

    Wow what idiots I'm glad they have not even heard of the .408 cheytac or the new .338 xtreme tactical. All I have to say is BAAAAAAAA.

    Just a question: I didn't think that muzzle loaders where classified as firearms according to ATF definitions?
