Assembly Democrats News Release

HGreenwald, Quijano, Coutinho, Eustace & Johnson Bill Banning High-Capacity Magazines in NJ Clears Assembly Panel

(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Lou Greenwald, Annette Quijano, Albert Coutinho, Tim Eustace to ban the sale of high-capacity magazines capable of carrying more than 10 rounds in New Jersey was approved Wednesday by an Assembly committee.

"High-capacity magazines have only one purpose - to inflict the most damage possible in the shortest amount of time. It is time we make public safety a priority and ban these magazines which have fueled some of the worst shootings in this country," said Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington).

Under current law, magazines capable of holding a maximum of 15 rounds of ammunition are legal in New Jersey. The bill (A-1329) would reduce the lawful maximum capacity of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds. The limit proposed by the bill would bring New Jersey's laws in line with the magazine limits contained in the original 1994 assault weapons ban (10 rounds).
