    New Jersey’s Slippery Slope Toward Outlawing Non-Smart Guns

    BY DAN ZIMMERMAN |
    JUL 19, 2019 |
    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy speaks during a bill signing ceremony in Berkeley Heights, N.J., Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Murphy has signed a measure aimed at making so-called smart guns available in the state. He also signed three other measures aimed at reining in gun violence. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)

    New Jersey’s new law requiring all gun stores in the state to sell so-called smart guns is the first step toward outlawing traditional firearms.
    This law still isn’t as bad as it might be… yet. It only says that the guns have to be available for purchase. But it clearly paves the way for later legislation demanding that only smart guns be sold or owned in the state. That’s a terrible policy for several reasons.
    First of all, smart gun technology is in development, but it’s still far from perfect. Assuming you find one that works every time, they still take too long to draw and prepare to fire. And a firearm that won’t function when needed is about as useful as a brick. On top of that, they tend to be insanely expensive.
    Further, just from a small government conservative perspective, having the government demanding that private retailers sell this or that product is simply bad policy. And banning them from selling otherwise legal products is even worse. And I won’t even get started on the Second Amendment issues being raised.

    You can bet, that when it comes to guns, Democraps have thought out the long game, and the long game is to outlaw guns.

    You are forced to acquire a gun from elsewhere. Now you are a felon. Should you use that gun to defend your life, now a murderer. Regardless of the circumstances.

    So your only options are to be risking your rights and freedom or vacate N.J. and leave it to the totalitarians.

    DAMNED good business opportunity for the Mob, if the Garden State goes this route.

    Would that apply to LEO's in NJ, or are some animals more equal than others?
