Zero magazines turned in to New Jersey law enforcement

When New Jersey passed a law making these magazines illegal in 2018, there was a debate on whether the gun owners of the state would hand in their magazines. When the law went into effect at the end of last year, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal celebrated it as a victory against gun rights advocates.

AmmoLand news reached out to departments across the Garden State and the New Jersey State Police to see how many magazines were turned in for destruction. Local departments were quick to confirm that they did not receive any magazines turned in by the citizens of New Jersey. The State Police would not comment on the record on the number of magazines turned in by residents.

Off the record, State Police sources told AmmoLand no magazines were turned in. We filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get the official answer from State Police officials. Our first request went unanswered, so we sent another, then another, and so on until we finally received a response from the State Police.

SGT Kristina Pados of the New Jersey State Police responded to our FOIA request. She confirmed what our sources inside the New Jersey Police told us. The gun owners of New Jersey have surrendered no magazines.

However, she did state that local departments might have them.

AmmoLand reached out to local police departments across New Jersey and have not been able to find a single magazine turned over to the authorities. It would seem like the gun owners of New Jersey have decided to ignore the law most likely because it is unenforceable.

And now they're all felons, for possessing a piece of plastic (or metal) and a spring. Tragic.

That's true enough. It's also tragic that the libtard gun grabbing politicians will never understand why.
Do what you say you're gonna do.

NJ is one of the best examples of the politicians trying to make criminals out of everyone in order to better control them. A few years ago, they passed laws levying $1,000s of fines against pet owners who did not restrain their pets in cars using the "approved" techniques. I think it is a mistake to try to drive with a pet in the driver's lap as some people seem prone to do. But NJ's approach takes that good intent to a ridiculous extreme - just like this magazine law.
