In this video press release, Assembly Majority Conference Leader Gordon M. Johnson (D-Bergen) discusses his legislation to criminalize the sale or possession of ammunition by individuals in New Jersey who have previously been convicted of a crime.
Current New Jersey law already prohibits convicted criminals from possessing firearms. Johnson's bill (A-1683) would make it illegal for certain types of convicted criminals to purchase, own or otherwise possess ammunition. Violators found to be in possession of ammunition would be subject to fines of up to $10,000 and up to 18 months in prison.
The measure passed the Assembly in February 76-0-1.
