(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Lou Greenwald, Joseph Cryan, Tim Eustace, Gabriela Mosquera, Jason O'Donnell, Mila Jasey, Annette Quijano, Charles Mainor and John F. Mckeon to limit how ammunition is sold in New Jersey and require better record keeping of ammunition sales in order to improve accountability was approved Wednesday by an Assembly panel.
"Right now it is too easy for individuals set on harming others to purchase round after round of ammunition without even leaving their homes," said Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington). "We are too familiar with the terrible tragedy this gap in the law can bring - as we saw in Aurora, Colorado. This is not about targeting responsible, law-abiding gun owners, but rather those individuals who stockpile bullets with deadly intentions."
