New Jersey's Latest 2A Infringement Goes into Effect TOMORROW

When the founders gave us the Second Amendment, they didn’t give us just the right to own guns, but the right to bear arms.

There is a difference here, and it’s one the the liberal left doesn’t like to talk about.

You see, the Second Amendment is meant to arm us as a deterrent against tyranny.  Basically, the American people must be allowed to freedom to own the weaponry and ammunition possible to overthrow a corrupt government, or to repel an invading army.

Good luck doing that in our modern day, even with the oh-so-scary AR-15 at our disposal.  Even this weapon cannot compete with the hardware of any major military power on the planet.

This all means that, when we talk about the infringement of the Second Amendment, we must draw a hard line in the sand as to where infringement begins.  This is what New Jersey is tackling with a new law going into effect tomorrow.

The possession of “high capacity” magazines will be a fourth degree felony in New Jersey beginning Tuesday morning.

Gov. Phil Murphy (D) signed the ban on magazines holding over 10 rounds in June, and it takes effect December 11.

How does banning magazines over a certain capacity coexist with our guaranteed right to be able to defend ourselves against an army, either foreign or domestic?  The new law was challenged legally on a Second Amendment basis, but to no avail.

The ban was challenged in court after it was signed, but last week the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upheld the ban. Breitbart News reported that a three-judge panel from the Third Circuit voted 2 to 1 to uphold the ban.

Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, was the panel judge who voted against the ban. He argued that the ruling treats the Second Amendment as protecting second-class rights, unequal with other rights. He wrote, “The Second Amendment is an equal part of the Bill of Rights. We must treat the right to keep and bear arms like other enumerated rights, as the Supreme Court insisted in Heller. We may not water it down and balance it away based on our own sense of wise policy.”

Let’s just hope that tyranny doesn’t attempt to take root in New Jersey.
