The anti-gun movement is trying to back-door gun control by taking away ammo. Do they think by confiscating magazines that hold more than 10 rounds that the “bad guys” will hand over their guns and ammo too? While law-abiding citizens are harmed by the gun control efforts, the bad guys are laughing…Here’s the latest dumb idea from the state of New Jersey:

A New Jersey gun-rights group is challenging an effort to ban and confiscate ammunition magazines that can hold up to 10 rounds. The group just filed a motion to block enforcement of the law.

WFB reports:

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs asked the U.S. District Court of New Jersey to keep the state from enforcing the ban while it considers the group’s case. The law in dispute requires anyone in New Jersey who has a magazine holding more than 10 rounds to either permanently modify it, transfer it out of state, or turn it into the police within 180 days of last Wednesday. If the court takes more than 180 days to litigate the case against the law, those with magazines may have to comply with the law even if the law is later found to be unconstitutional.

The group said the law violates the Second Amendment and has the potential to turn many law-abiding gun owners into criminals.

“This unconstitutional law will be ignored by criminals and madmen, and affects only law-abiding citizens,” Scott Bach, the group’s executive director, said in a statement when the group filed their suit. “It turns one million people into criminals with the stroke of a pen, limits self-defense, and takes away property lawfully acquired. Buy it yesterday, ban it today, go to prison tomorrow—it’s the Jersey way, and the goal of our lawsuit is to boot this law, which makes no one safer, into the trash heap of history where it belongs.”
