As Second Amendment lawyers in New York you would imagine that we are familiar with idiotic “gun control” laws. Which is why an article in this month’s Ballistic Magazine about the twelve most idiotic gun laws caught my eye. To be sure New York, along with neighboring New Jersey are well represented on this list. So lets go through them
- New Jersey’s ban on hollow points. Yes, believe it or not New Jersey wants everyone running around with full metal jackets. Hollow points are illegal every place except at the place of purchase, your home, the range or hunting. Although the law is so poorly written that expanding bullets like Federal Guard Dog and bullets with the tip filled with polymer like Critical Defense/Duty are legal.
- Back to New Jersey, New Jersey also treats BB guns and Antique Black Powder weapons as modern firearms. You need the New Jersey State Firearms ID Card just to buy them.
