    This is all prep for post 2020, see SatCong’s post “This could happen to us.”
    They will punish every gun owner, Christian and or conservative with extreem prejudice.

    One of the loonies has already said that he wants to regulate speech. The rest will try to do it in time. But first the guns must go.

    I just looked online and found a bank in Allentown, PA where you can get a safe deposit box for $30 a year that would probably hold all your "Murphy Mags." There are probably even better storage deals to be had across the border. If the mags are not in NJ, NJ can't do anything about them.

    Another thought: Box them up, mail or ship them to a friend or relative in a free state.

    Then start planning to move out of NJ.

    Good advice in dealing with the situation in New Jersey. It is also applicable in other states as the gun-grabbing rabid liberals attempt to convert us to a communist nation.
    So who is this Will that everybody fires at, what did he do, and how come he's not dead yet??

    That would be proof positive of illegal possession at this time.

    Proven how? If the package gets in a US mailbox, even the one in front of your house, NJ authorities can't touch it by law and gun magazines are not prohibited items with the USPS.

    Contraband in a particular jurisdiction becomes exempt when dropped in a mail box?

    18 U.S. Code § 1708: Technically, a local cop would need a warrant to just look in your mailbox, although probably that wouldn't be strictly enforced. But it is a federal felony for him to even take any first class letters or packages out of the box, much less open them. It is the province of the US Postal Inspectors to determine if illegal items are being sent by mail. Even they need a federal warrant to open first class letters and packages. But the magazines would not be illegal as far as the Post Office is concerned. Once something becomes first class mail, it is protected by 4A and the US code.
