We are happy to announce that NJ2AS successfully lobbied to have an anti-gun bill removed from the NJ Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism, and Historic Preservation committee.
The proposed bill, S-1976, which aimed to have New Jersey’s pension systems divest from the firearm industry, was scheduled for a public hearing at 11:00 am on Monday morning. Please view a video of NJ2AS President, Alexander Roubian, testifying against a similar bill in 2013 here:
At that time we were successful in having the legislation amended. This time we were successful in having the entire bill pulled from the committee.
However, while we have been advised they pulled the legislation from committee “for now,” we will not stop here. Victory will be achieved when the actual sponsor removes the bill from ever being considered again.
This is why we need your help to empower NJ2AS to do just that. We have expanded our reach, influence, and relationships, and that is solely due to our members and supporters. We have been transparent on social media and our website when we have meetings with policymakers, and, in this case, it seems our engagement with legislators is working – all thanks to the proud card carry members and donors of NJ2AS!
