New Jersey wants to ban any and all rifles, shotguns and handguns with any
one 'military' feature. You can find the text of the bill (S548) HERE.
So basically between this and all the other restrictions in New Jersey, you
have a choice between a bolt action 22LR and a Thompson Center Contender
Sucked the dick of the local police chief
Passed a stringent background check
Proven a need to own a firearm
Taken an extensive 40 hour class and
Told your mother-in-law that you love her.
