“One Gun a Month” Bill Passes in N.J. Legislature

Gun-control advocates won a victory by the passage of a bill that could make New Jersey the fourth state with a one-handgun-per-month buying limit.

The measure was approved in the Senate with the bare- minimum 21 votes after Sen. Fred Madden (D., Gloucester) dropped his opposition to the idea.

Madden was one of three South Jersey Democrats who previously voted against the plan, joining all 17 Senate Republicans to block it.

But the former state police superintendent changed his vote after Gov. Corzine agreed to form a task force that will examine the law’s impact and draw up recommendations that could lead to exemptions for gun collectors and competitive and recreational shooters.
