NRA Member Proposes Federal Implementation Of Strict NJ Gun Control Laws
January 16, 2013
“The Borough of Madison” urges federal adaptation of strict New Jersey gun control reform legislation.
Last Monday New Jersey’s Madison borough council passed a resolution titled “Resolution of the Borough of Madison in Support of Federal Legislation Adopting New Jersey’s Strict Gun Laws”. The resolution proposes that one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US are implemented at the federal level. The council will be “(…) urging federal legislators to adopt federal gun laws that are similar to those in New Jersey, which is considered to have among the strictest gun laws in the U.S.”, the MadisonPatch reported today.
During the council meeting, police-officers gave a demonstration of different types of guns, intended to get the get the resolution passed:
“(…) discussion on the topic was accompanied by a presentation by Madison police officers about various types of guns.”
On January 5 2012, the MadisonPatchreported that it was an NRA-member who also happens to be the councilman who intended to introduce the resolution:
“(…) Borough Councilman Robert Catalanello, a member of the National Rifle Association, plans to introduce a resolution at the governing body’s next meeting urging Congress to use New Jersey’s gun laws as the laws for the entire U.S.”
Madison’s mayor Robert Conley immediately put his signature underneath the pledge, adding that councilman Catalanello “will be quick to point out that he’s a member of the NRA while I’m a member of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.”
“We are working together on this because enough is enough”, Conley said.
The resolution in question was unanimously passed on January 14 by Madison borough council members.
“The resolution says more than 48,000 Americans will be murdered with guns during the next four years and Madison’s elected officials are outraged at the statistics and support common sense reform.”
If these strict gun laws were to be implemented federally, the following regulations would rain down on the entire United States:
“(…) prohibiting the possession of ‘assault firearms,’ and of magazines that can hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition, and that possession of automatic firearms is prohibited without a state license.”
“the Borough of Madison supports gun control reform legislation at the Federal level to mirror that of the gun restrictions in New Jersey” and “urges swift passage of these laws at the Federal level.”

Yup, if you have the wrong political views you can’t have kids. How much longer before this spreads to childbirth? The next question, when will this spread to us here in the USA? This is big goverment and big brother at work.
fluorescentbird asked: Just wondering if you guys have heard of the Enemy Expatriation Act, and if you’ve written anything about it? Scary stuff.
» SFB says: We haven’t, but as far as we can tell, the Enemy Expatriation Act (which would strip citizenship of those accused of terrorism) is a newer version of a bill introduced in both the House and Senate in 2010 (and notably co-sponsored by Joe Lieberman) called the Terrorist Expatriation Act. That bill didn’t go anywhere, though it got play in the media. Considering that the bill was resubmitted in October, in the wake of the recent death-by-bombing of Anwar Al-Awlaki, according to comments by Rep. Charlie Dent in a YouTube video, I get the impression that they were hoping to build new attention for the idea after it faded away the first time. Clearly, since the only news item on the new bill is a syndicated Activist Post story (which seems to suggest that the thrust of the bill got into the NDAA indirectly, “expatriation in practice but not in name,” though their reasoning sounds like a stretch to me), and it’s gone nowhere since October, according to GovTrack, it seems to me that it wasn’t very successful in that goal. However, we’ll keep an eye out. — Ernie @ SFB
Now Congress is trying to pass legislation to take away your U.S. citizenship if you are “engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States”. In other words, if you attempt to fight government tyranny, they will strip you of your citizenship and you will have no constitutional rights. This is the next step towards government tyranny after Obama just signed the NDAA.
