The Brady group really wants to make sure that only so called “smart guns” are available in New Jersey, and they are now suing the state for not enforcing a 2002 gun control law.
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Million Mom March Mercer County Chapter of the Brady Campaign have filed a suit to force New Jersey to comply with the 2002 law called the New Jersey Personalized Handgun Law.
According to the law the Attorney General is supposed to issue a report on the availability and production of smart guns every 6 months, but no reports have been made in over 11 years.
The most crucial part of the law says that once “smart guns” are found to be available in the United States then ONLY “smart guns” will be allowed to be sold in New Jersey within 3 years. It looks like the anti-gun campaign is looking to make sure that traditional firearms as we know it will be taken off every shelf in NJ.
According to the Gun Writer,
“As far as we are aware, the acting Attorney General has not complied with the requirements of the New Jersey Personalized Handgun Law,” said Gregory G. Little of White & Case LLP, counsel with the Brady Center. “The enforcement of the statute will save lives by greatly reducing gun violence, suicides and accidental shootings.”
The ramifications for enforcing the New Jersey law have become part of a growing national debate. In recent months, California and Maryland firearm dealers announced that they would both sell “smart guns” manufactured by Armatix. The offer was later rescinded due to death threats and pressure from gun extremists.
“The Brady Campaign’s New Jersey Million Mom March Chapters and many other concerned New Jerseyans fought long and hard to enact this groundbreaking law to protect families in New Jersey from senseless gun violence,” said Carole Stiller, president of the New Jersey Million Mom March Chapters and president of the Million Mom March Mercer County Chapter. “We fought for this law because we would not tolerate children dying because the gun industry refused to make guns safer. This law will save lives, and we will not tolerate this law being ignored.”
Prior to filing this complaint, the Brady Campaign and its New Jersey Million Mom March Chapters contacted the Attorney General’s Office several times seeking information and to urge compliance with the law. The information received from the Attorney General’s Office showed that for the past 10 years the state has failed to comply with the reporting requirement of the statute. No report has been delivered since 2003, and that 2003 report has not been located or shared by the Attorney General’s Office.
“New Jersey recognized handguns should adapt with the latest safety technology available in the marketplace. Much like seatbelts and airbags save lives, so too will technology that helps to prevent a child or thief from being able to mistakenly fire a gun,” added Lowy. “This lawsuit hopes to ensure the voice of New Jerseyans is enforced.”
