Jersey Smart Gun Debate is Aflame

Jersey Smart Gun Debate is Aflame
BY GABRIELLA MANGINO
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The heated debate over a gun law, the Childproof Handgun Bill, is on after 12 years, and NJ gun-rights activists are saying “no.”

Northjersey.com reported in the past few months the gun rights lobby has been frantically working to derail a 12-year-old law intended to speed the adoption of new technology that would ensure guns would fire only in the hands of their authorized users.

The law required that the only guns sold in NJ would be so-called “smart guns,” guns that only fire in recognition of the owner/operator.

But, why is the law receiving such attention now?

A story in The Record seven months ago has become a flash point in the debate over gun safety as a German manufacturer, Armatix, has attempted to sell the first such “smart gun” in the country: the iP1, northjersey.com reported. Evidence that a smart gun had been stocked in a NJ store could start the ticking clock on the state requirement.

According to nj.com, State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg told MSNBC on Friday that she and colleagues would change the 2002 law so that the smart-gun-only restriction would kick in three years after the first such weapon was available for retail sale.
