[Video] CEO of NJ Firearms Company to Lawmakers – “We Will Not Comply”
Anthony P. Colandro, who holds ownership and executive positions in several gun related companies didn’t mince words when speaking to NJ lawmakers in regards to a proposed magazine capacity limit bill currently being considered by the NJ state legislature.
The bill proposes lowering the legal capacity of magazines from the current limit of 15 rounds (also ridiculous) to 10 rounds (even more ridiculous).
In the video Colandro tells lawmakers that tens of thousands of dollars of magazines and firearms that he owns for his various business ventures will be rendered worthless if this bill becomes law.
Some of the highlights from the video,
“I own, personally, approximately $30,000 of guns, contrary to what Cease Fire New Jersey Says, that they do not make 10-round magazines for,” he explained. “I also have in my possession at my range over $20,000 of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.”
“Have you guys seen what is happening in Connecticut right now?” he continued. “One million gun owners in New Jersey are also gonna say, like our brothers and sisters in the north, that we will not comply. And I can tell you here and now, I will not comply.”
The NJ bill has several more steps to go through before it would reach Governor Chris Christie’s desk. It is unclear if Christie, a “Republican” would veto such a bill. Christie has been a mixed bag on gun control bills in the past, allowing some to become law and vetoing others.
The bill has already passed the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee by a vote of 5-3.
