New Jersey Legislature Passes Sweeping New Gun-Carry Restrictions, Insurance Mandate

The Garden State will become the latest jurisdiction to test the boundaries of the Supreme Court’s latest gun-carry decision.

The New Jersey state senate passed Assembly Bill 4769 by a 21-16 vote on Monday. The wide-ranging bill would create liability insurance requirements, increase carry permit fees, and impose numerous “sensitive places” restrictions where lawful carry is prohibited. It now heads to Governor Phil Murphy’s (D.) desk. He is expected to sign it into law.

“The decision by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year stripped away the right for states to regulate who is able to carry concealed weapons in public,” Senator Linda Greenstein (D.), a prime sponsor of the bill, said following the final vote.
