The following story is via the NRA-ILA,
On Monday, May 5, the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 993. Sponsored by state Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37), S.993 seeks to restrict the maximum capacity of ammunition magazines from 15 to 10 rounds and ban many popular firearms.
Under the guise of public safety, anti-gun politicians continue their efforts to erode the Second Amendment rights of New Jersey residents. New Jersey is one of only a few states which already has a magazine restriction, and another arbitrary limit will have no impact on crime or criminals. Instead, this legislation demonstrably favors criminals who prefer to prey on unarmed victims.

I know this is third-generation information. If you haven't read this news item elsewhere, though, you need to think about it.
NJ is just one of the MANY states working assiduously to restrict Second Amendment Rights ....
... One Step At A Time.
If YOUR state is unwilling to accept magazine restrictions of 10 rounds, they'll sell you on a 15-round limit.
And then they will turn around and change the law from 15 to 10 rounds, because ... well, you have already shown that you are a whore; what they are doing now is merely dickering about the price.
What's next? Probably, a five or six round ban, which will essentially eliminate all firearms except revolvers .. if that .. and then all guns will be banned by administrative fiat. At that point, you won't get a vote.
For the benefit of those states whose citizens are currently dickering with their legislatures; take note of where this "Road To Perdition" will take you.
