Jack Ciattarelli on Gun Control

 

 


No criminalization of all 50-caliber weapons

Excerpts from legislation: Revises definition of "destructive device" to include weapons of 50 caliber or greater. The current definition is 60 caliber.
  • Exemptions for antique firearms or muzzleloader rifles; these firearms would continue with the current 60 caliber restriction.
  • Individuals who lawfully own one of these newly prohibited firearms have one year in which to dispose of them.
  • Establishes a buyback program to facilitate the voluntary surrender of these firearms.

    Excerpts from veto message: New Jersey already has the second strictest gun laws in the US. In early 2013, the NJ SAFE Task Force recommended narrowly limiting one specific type of firearm: the Barrett 50 caliber long-range rifle. This bill goes well beyond that recommendation and would instead criminalize the ownership of a whole class of firearms.

    Legislative outcome: Ciattarelli voted NAY; bill passed Senate 23-16-1; bill passed House 46-29-4; vetoed Sept. 9

    Ciattarelli scores 57% by NRA on pro-gun rights policies

    While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly three million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.

    The following ratings are based on lifetime voting records on gun issues and the results of a questionaire sent to all Congressional candidates; the NRA assigned a letter grade (with A+ being the highest and F being the lowest).
