You probably have never heard of New Jersey Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, but after giving a speech like this, you won’t soon forget him.
In opposition to legislation banning magazines over ten rounds in New Jersey, Carroll gives a great floor speech which needs to be sent to Governor Christie.
It’s amazing how silly the argument is for pushing a ban on gun magazines over 10 rounds, but if more people understood that this is an attack on freedom, it would make even non-gun owners wake up and reject this kind of legislation.
In the speech Carroll slams the idea that the gun control bill would make NJ safer.
There is quite literally no benefit to public safety from a proposal such as this. It will not save one life, while potentially ruining tens of thousands.

Here is a transcript of that last part of Carroll’s speech:
Punishing the guilty and helping the mentally imbalanced to ensure they do not become a danger to themselves or others is well within the prerogative of this body, but depriving millions of people of there cherished rights because an infinitesimally small number of our fellow citizens abused those constitutional guaranteed liberties is unwise, improper and unconstitutional.
This proposal is not a reasonable measure to save lives but it does have huge consequences upon personal freedom.
It will stop no criminals and create thousands of new ones.
It will work hardships upon millions of our fellow citizens, those people we proport to represent. For those reasons, Mr. Speaker I urge a negative vote.
