NJ Legislators Approve Bill Banning Gun Manufacturing

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 4 days ago

Via WiscoDave, that’s not exactly the way the title of the article reads, but it’s close enough to the real effect.

TRENTON, NJ – No Ghost Guns. No 3-D Firearms. And no purchasing any component used in making either of these weapons.

Legislation banning the manufacturing of any untraceable or covert firearm was approved 68-5-3 by the full Assembly and the Senate 31-0 Monday.

The bill (A-3129)- sponsored by Assembly Democrats Paul Moriarty, Gary Schaer and Annette Quijano – would make it illegal to purchase firearm parts for the purpose of unlawfully manufacturing firearms without a serial number and to manufacture or possess covert or undetectable firearms and 3-D printed firearms.

“Instead of making it harder for criminals to obtain weapons, new technology and mail-order kits are only making it easier for criminals to manufacture firearms at home,” said Moriarty (D- Camden and Gloucester). “Our only recourse is to arm our court system with additional penalties for those who choose to skirt the law, avoid licensure and manufacture these types of firearms to keep or even to sell. We’re saying no to ghost guns, and no to 3-D firearms. Not in New Jersey.”

Well, in addition to running headlong into the second amendment, which they don’t care about, there’s also the issue that manufacturing a firearm for personal use without a serial number is perfectly legal under federal law as long as the firearm isn’t sold or transferred to anyone.

This isn’t really about 3D guns.  This is about universal background checks and government control.  But I’m being redundant, yes?

    I’ll repeat a quote from one of the members on ARFcom that sums it perfectly: “New Jersey…it ain’t for everyone.”

    Seriously, though, just how much further into the cesspool do states like NJ, NY, MD, MA, CA, etc. need to slide before they become truly FAILED STATES? And, why would any decent person with half a brain live in such places?

    Firearms made by one person without a serial number can’t be made with the purpose of transferring them, but they can be transferred at some later date. I dare say that there are few, if any, cases of anyone being charged with criminally transferring a self made firearm, unless it was a homemade machine gun. I have no plans to give or sell any firearm I’ve made or may make in the future.

    The BATFAE still gets away with arresting people for a non-taxed and registered machine gun despite the fact that they’re forbidden to collect a tax on them. So far, US government courts are aiding and abetting that crime.

    From the article: “would make it illegal to purchase firearm parts”.

    NJ courts have ruled very narrowly on exemptions to state ‘laws’. So, if someone orders – or just TRIES to order – even so much as a replacement part to an existing firearm they already own, they WILL probably be considered in violation of this ‘law’. Not to mention that suppliers will most likely stop selling or shipping non-NFA parts to NJ addresses anyway, to keep their own hands clean.

    [‘ExpatNJ’ (Expatriate from Nazi Jerzey) for a reason. Despite being born, raised and having lived most of my life there, I am fortunate I was able to escape to a free-er state. It was a Socialist Progressive Sh!thole when I left, and the situation has continued to deteriorate. For your own protection, DO NOT go to, visit, or attempt to drive through NJ, have any connecting flights there, or purchase any goods from its businesses. Starve that beast any way you can. Apologies for the rant.]

    ExpatNJ – I’ve commented before that since the (((bolsheviks))) have discovered the “Loophole” of how anyone can ‘legally’ Make their own Guns from ‘Parts’ that it is only a matter of Time before (((they))) will “Regulate” all purchases of Gun Parts (and eventually Accessories like Scopes, Bipods, Magazines, etc. in the exact same way as Complete Firearms are.. You will be forced to (at a Minimum) go through the NICS Check in order to Buy a Spring and Pin Kit for an AR.

    While the Phrase ..”purchase firearm parts for the purpose of unlawfully manufacturing firearms…” begs the Question of “intent”, for all practical purposes in the perverted “Just Us” system, the government does not need to “Prove Intent to Commit a Crime”, but only provide Evidence that one of their
    “Codes” was broken.

    These Nazi Jerzy communists won’t know whether to sh*t or go blind when they Figure Out that Anyone with Machine Tools can “Make Guns”.
