New Jersey Democrats Pass Bill Banning Grenades, Firearms in ‘Sensitive Places’

Gun Rights

New Jersey Democrats advanced a bill Monday to ban the carry of grenades, firearms, and other types of weapons in “sensitive places.”

The New Jersey Monitor reports that Democrats focused on “grenades” and “propelled explosives,” in addition to “certain firearms,” in order to try to stave off legal challenges.

The gun control bill is a reworking of an earlier version that “could have seen residents face steep penalties for carrying daggers, brass knuckles, and other non-ballistic weaponry in parks, schools, and bars, among a host of other locations.”

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) describes the amended gun control legislation as an “attempt to completely thwart concealed carry in New Jersey by labeling nearly everywhere a ‘sensitive place.’”

The NRA-ILA noted: “The original bill banned more than just firearms and would have included, for example, common tools like knives in restaurants and hockey sticks in sports arenas.  Even though the amended bill addressed the common tools, it is still a complete end-run of the United States Supreme Court decision in [NYSRPA v. Bruen (2022)].”
