(TRENTON) - Assembly Majority Leader Louis D. Greenwald (D-Camden) issued a multimedia package Tuesday on his legislation to reduce the maximum capacity of gun magazines sold in New Jersey to 10 rounds of ammunition.
Under current law, magazines capable of holding a maximum of 15 rounds of ammunition are legal in New Jersey. Greenwald's 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, which limited magazines to 10 rounds.
The multimedia package consists of a video of comments from Majority Leader Greenwald on his legislation and audio and a transcript of same.

His administration has also awarded legal work to Weiner Lesniak, the Parsippany-based firm run by state Sen. Ray Lesniak, the Union County Democratic Party power broker." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
