By Robert Farago

“In a partisan vote of 3-2, the New Jersey Senate Law and Public Safety Committee today passed S993 out of committee,” the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs’ presser laments. “Despite impassioned testimony from gun owners and Second Amendment leaders who were in attendance.” Click here for bill’s text, which would restrict NJ gun owners to 10-round ammunition magazines and ban the sale of “assault weapons” (list of firearms covered after the jump). “The legislation now moves to the full Senate for a vote, which could come as soon as May 12.” This after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the Drake case on the NJ’s “justifiable need” concealed carry provision. If the bill lands on Republican Presidential hopeful Chris Christie’s desk, will he sign it? . . .
