Christie Signs Bump Stock Ban Just Before Leaving Office


Chris Christie signed a bill Monday banning the sale or possession of bump stocks, marking one of the New Jersey governor’s final acts before leaving office.

The bump stocks bill was among more than 150 bills Christie signed on his final full day in office, reported.

Bump stocks, which can increase the rate of fire on a weapon, previously could not be attached to a weapon under New Jersey law, but the new legislation, sponsored by Democrats, completely bans the accessories. Selling or possessing a bump stock carries a three- to five-year prison sentence or a fine of up to $15,000, according to Those already in possession of the devices have 90 days to turn them over to law enforcement.

  1. YAY! He banned an accessory that was used in exactly one crime ever, and the function of which you can replicate with one finger, a 1.5 minute youtube video, and about 30-50 rounds of ammo used to practice. (seriously, I learned to bump fire a gun by watching a minute and a half youtube video and trying it at a shooting range. took me 2 magazines worth of ammo to figure it out. It’s really easy). This is why politicians who know nothing about guns shouldn’t make gun laws.

  2. Are they going to compensate people who turn them in? Or are they just going to steal them from people who paid for them because they decided to pass a law? and you gotta love how they decided to ban owning something that they previously banned using. Yeah, that’s not a redundant law.
