Well, Im one step closer to being a criminal...

NJ assembly passed all the new gun regulations today....including...

1) A reduction of magazine capacity from 15 to 10.
2) Ammo sales can only be done in person (not online) so stores can now rape everyone.


I guess my 10 glock 19 mags will make me a criminal soon.

It still needs to pass the senate, and Christie will have a chance to veto it (which me thinks since he wants to be president one day, he might want to consider it) but since he supports the AWB, there's a fat chance...no pun intended.

If this does pass, I'm out of here....seriously. It may be the straw that I have been looking for to leave this state.

These laws are getting out of control...Maryland senate is debating/voting tonight on an "awb" as well...I have been contacting senators non stop lately but MD is full of a bunch of f0cking idiots...I'm hoping this gets voted against, we have a few good politicians fighting the good fight.. I did get this email back today, which was my favorite response, the rest of them made me want to throw up and gives me a little hope:
I would like to thank you for taking the time to write and share your thoughts with me on the anti-gun legislation before us this session. As I am sure you know, the Judicial Proceedings Committee had its hearing on SB 281, on February 6, 2013.

Those who came down to Annapolis that day to attend the rally and to testify against the SB 281 were nothing short of amazing. In all my years in Annapolis, I have never witnessed so many people as compassionate about their rights as citizens, their willingness to do whatever it took to be there, and then waiting for many long hours for the opportunity to testify.

It was quite obvious that the leadership in Annapolis was not prepared for the hundreds and hundreds of people wanting to speak before the Committee. I totally disagreed with cutting testimony off at 9 p.m. and only allowing those who had waited so patiently to give their name, where they lived and their position on the bill. Everyone should have been allowed their time to express their feelings towards these bills, even if it meant going well into the night or the early hours of the following day.

Many of the Marylanders I have heard from are well aware of my long standing position to protect our Second Amendment rights. For those of you who may not know me, I want to assure you that I am opposed to any and all legislation that infringes upon your Second Amendment right to bear arms. My record is clear on this issue as I have never voted in favor of any “anti-gun” legislation.

Please be watchful of the House crossover bill HB 294. As of February 8, it has not been scheduled for a hearing.

I will be working non-stop to defeat the Governor’s bills. Thank you for fighting the good fight with those of us who support the Second Amendment.

Sincerely,

Senator Nancy Jacobs
District 34, Harford and Cecil County

it is difficult to just pick up and move, especially if you have a decent job and family/community ties. and it just gets harder if your moving out of state. i hope he axes it. he will make more of a statement at this point axing the ban than he would letting it pass

I think that if he wants ANY hope to be president, he will need to veto this, but what do I know.

What I do know is that the wife and I are going to have a SERIOUS talk tonight.

Good luck sir. Gonna be hard to justify leaving a state over gun-laws to someone who may not have the same feelings (not knowing your wife at all)

Its simply a matter of numbers my man. If your state has the democratic votes (and a democrat governor doesn't help) this sh!t passes. NJ is a full retard state, so I expect this to pass.

MD is 98% Full Retard...but we've been coming out in numbers and have had a couple organizations behind us...however our governor is the biggest jackass in the country... and he's got a couple pets that will do as instructed.

She has no problem leaving. Her only holdbacks are the facts that she has a good job and family. Granted, those are pretty serious holdbacks, but like I told her, we need to live our lives for US first and foremost. She wants a nice house. A nice house in NJ has property taxes over $14,000 a year. I refuse to buy a house in a place like this. I can move somewhere else, and buy a house and be able to afford to live my life working as a manager at Applebees. The amount of money I would need to shell out on a downpayment here for a decent house would BUY me a house elsewhere. Im not moving tomorrow, and the wife already knew it was on the burner, just that now it's being moved a little closer to the front. Remember, it starts with gun laws. The rest follow. I am looking to open a restaurant. In NJ, it will take close to 8 months before I could even open the doors. In a decent state like Texas, it would be A LOT faster. Do you know how much money those 8 months would cost me? There is a reason why businesses and people are running away from these full retard states.

VA and NC were on my list if I decide to stay on the east coast....but I still prefer the Utah/Wyoming/AZ area.....thanks for the offer though...if it comes down to it, I will definitely take you up on that offer.

I really REALLY don't like heat, and don't tolerate it too well. I can't live in a place where the AC is on 10 months a year. I also want to live in a Colorado style environment (forests, pine trees, etc) and 4 seasons. I gotta have my snow bro. (Utah is the exception.)

I'd be perfectly happy dropping down to two seasons and traveling to visit snow if I really want to see some.

The past few winters here have been a joke anyway, and spring and fall usually just kind of give it a miss.

Depends on which two seasons.... Hot and hotter isn't gonna cut it.

I'm also considering leaving this shithole called NJ.I think most of the blue states will be bankrupt soon.The only people that will stay in those states are the non-tax payers,welfare recipients with their free Obama phones.
