Rationing Reason in Jersey

New Jersey wants to ration Second Amendment rights to "one a month." But the reasoning behind their legislation doesn't add up.

The New Jersey state Assembly passed the legislation just days ago. But in the Senate, it faces a lot of opposition- and for a lot of good reasons.

New Jersey already has some of the strictest anti-gun laws in the country. For example, you need a permit and approval from the state police just to buy an air gun in New Jersey. Buying a handgun there is tougher than in almost any other state.

Yet Jersey's violent crime rates are almost triple those of its northern neighbor Vermont, which has few restrictions on gun rights, and where you can carry a concealed handgun without even getting a permit.

Only three other states—California, Maryland and Virginia—have "one-gun-a-month" laws. South Carolina—the first state ever to impose such a limit—repealed the law after it failed to cut crime … even after almost 30 years on the books.

Virginia passed its "one-gun-a-month" law 15 years ago.

Yet New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" claims that Virginia still ranks near the top as a source for crime guns in New York City.

So if "one-gun-a-month" hasn't worked and won't work, then why do the gun-banners in Jersey want to pass it?

Maybe because they know that every failed gun ban gives them cover to demand more and more.
