It seems that due to strict wording of a bill that is being pushed through the New Jersey legislature (and is expected to pass thanks to a back room deal), NJ residents may soon find that their .22LR rifles with tube fed magazines banned and/or confiscated.

Many .22LR rifles use tubular magazines that can hold between 10-15 rounds of ammo. Under the new law, magazines and guns with permanent magazines that hold more than 10 rounds would be banned.

Emily Miller at the Washington Times has more details,

The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs gave the draft legislation to top firearms experts in the country to determine what guns would fall under the expanded ban.

They discovered that the bill would affect tube-fed, semi-automatic rifles because the magazine cannot be separated from the gun.

Thus, the experts found that at least 43 common rifles would suddenly be considered a prohibited “assault firearm,” such as the .22 caliber Marlin Model 60, Remington Nylon 66 and Winchester 190.

Just having one such gun would turn a law-abiding owner into a felon overnight.

There is no grandfather clause for guns and magazines that are currently legally owned.
