A Day At The Shooting Range Pending Magazine Ban - My9 New Jersey

A Day At The Shooting Range Pending Magazine Ban

Posted: Updated:
Woodland Park, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Chasing New Jersey continues to follow the possible unintended consequences of New Jersey’s pending ten-round magazine law which would essentially limit the amount of bullets a gun can hold down to ten.

New Jersey’s youngest Second-Amendment activist, competitive shooter Shyanne Roberts, says that her father would immediately become a felon if this law passes for owning the guns she uses in her competitions.

The nine-year-old said that she just wants to compete and have fun, and she doesn’t understand the need for a ban like this.

“I wouldn’t be able to shoot anymore and that would make me really upset,” she explained.

Anthony Colandro, the owner of Gun 4 Hire invited Shyanne, her family and some Chasers for a day of private shooting at his range in Woodland Park, New Jersey. Colandro explained that the pending law will make felons out of people who may not even realize it.

“The guy who has a Civil War relic or a WWII gun that his uncle gave him that holds more than ten rounds, he’s not gonna know it’s illegal and if his house gets broken into or there’s a fire or the cops come in, he’s gonna get locked up and he’s gonna look at seven years of prison,” he explained.

The magazine limit continues to make its way to Governor Christie’s desk. Meanwhile, Shyanne is getting ready for a major competition in June.
