The stronger gun control is for law-abiding citizens, the easier it is for criminals. We need to go through extensive background checks here in New Jersey from the state, county, and local police just to get a firearm purchase card. That allows you to only buy rifles and shotguns. Then when you want to buy a handgun you need to go back to your local police station, pay again, and wait for the process all over again! When you receive the permit and go to the firearm store to buy… with all your paperwork …you need to get another background check! Totally redundant and totally useless..all as a deterrent to buy and to make money for the state of New Jersey! Law-abiding citizens are considered guilty of GOING to commit a crime here in New Jersey as soon as you apply for a permit to purchase. Not innocent before proving you can’t be trusted with a firearm but GUILTY! They have you convicted and sentenced as soon as you apply!! Meanwhile, if you were a criminal wouldn’t it be much easier to go out on the street and purchase a firearm…easy peasy. These laws do absolutely NOTHING to fight crime with a firearm…in fact…it makes it much much easier for criminals. Look at Wyoming, when you turn 18 you can purchase and carry a firearm until you prove you can’t! Remember one thing, if you want to commit a crime with a firearm you will!! Whether you had a permit to carry and purchase or NOT. You can always get a firearm here in New Jersey illegally…easy as taking a shit after drinking 4 glasses of apple cider!! So, if the anti-gun people really stopped and thought about it..they TOO will see strict gun control only benefits criminals and people that do not follow the laws anyway!
