The New Jersey Legislature has taken a step in the right direction in reducing gun violence.
The bill signed by Gov.
Chris Christie, which passed the Assembly this week, prohibits the sale of “assault weapons,” but allows for certain firearms that would not otherwise be legal under state law to be sold.
The state has not yet issued a license to sell them.
That could allow law-abiding gun owners to obtain a new gun license and carry it openly in the state.
If a person uses the law to obtain an assault weapon, it would be subject to a penalty of up to $2,000 in fines.
This is the first time a state has issued a licensing requirement for assault weapons.
This law does not affect guns already on the market, but it does put a gun’s sale into a new category.
There is no way to know if the new law will affect sales of those firearms, but there are many in the gun industry that believe the bill could.
“If they don’t pass this bill, then you’re looking at a significant decrease in sales,” said Mike DiGiacomo, president of the National Rifle Association.
The New York state legislature also approved a bill on Friday that would prohibit people from buying guns that can be easily converted to machine guns.
The measure is in response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and injured more than 500.
It also makes it illegal for a person to buy a weapon that can easily convert to a machine gun.
New York’s bill could also be used in other states to enforce tougher gun laws, which would likely include a ban on buying guns from China.
But gun advocates say the new bill is the least restrictive of the five they are pursuing.
“The most restrictive legislation we have on the books is the ban on assault weapons,” said Steve Cohen, the executive director of Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control group that opposes a ban.
The legislation has broad support, and New Jersey Governor Christie said he would sign it if it passes.
“We will not hesitate to sign it and get this done,” Christie said in a statement.
Christie, a Republican, has said he is opposed to a ban that could restrict access to guns.
Lawmakers in Washington, D.C., also have passed gun control bills, but the measures have not been fully implemented.
