On August 16, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) vetoed some gun bills and sent others back to the state legislature with “recommendations.” One such recommendation is “requiring a New Jersey firearms identification card for the purchase of all ammunition.”
Christie also wants physicians and screeners overseeing involuntary commitments to inquire about firearm ownership. This information could be obtained through a provision in the bills for a firearms identification card.
Christie vetoed the .50 caliber rifle ban, saying he wanted to ban long range Barrett .50 calibers, not all .50 calibers in general.
