New Jersey Resident Turn Zero Magazines In Despite Ban
By Tom Knighton
While I’m someone who believes the law should generally be upheld, I also have a fondness for acts of defiance. No, it doesn’t make sense to me, either. I blame my parents. Mom was a defiant sort, and Dad was a police officer.
Yes, my childhood was confusing.
Regardless, there are some acts of defiance we should all celebrate. A great example of that is what’s transpiring in New Jersey.
You see, despite the recent magazine ban, gun owners in the Garden State have decided to give their government the middle finger.
Thanks to a December 5 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, New Jersey’s ban on gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds took effect on December 10. By that date, all owners of heretofore legal “large capacity magazines” (LCMs) were required to surrender them to police, render them inoperable, modify them so they cannot hold more than 10 rounds, or sell them to authorized owners. Those who failed to do so are guilty of a fourth-degree felony, punishable by a maximum fine of $10,000 and up to 18 months in prison.
