Gun Control Bill Targets FBI Watchlist

A common sense measure advanced by a New Jersey Assembly panel today would deny anyone on the FBI Terrorist Watchlist a firearms identification card or permit. The bill is one of several that are part of a Democratic gun violence prevention package.

Current law indicates that a card or permit may be denied to any person if it “would not be in the interest of the public health, safety or welfare.” However, this bill takes an extra step by providing a separate statutory provision for a person on the watchlist.

“The individuals on this list are wanted for plotting, attempting or carrying through life-changing criminal acts against humanity,” said Assembly Democrat Angel Fuentes, one of the bill’s sponsors. “By specifically establishing this provision, we are ensuring the people of this state greater protection down the line.”

This and other gun prevention measures are headed to the Assembly Speaker for consideration of a vote on the Lower House floor.
