Cedar Creek will be closed Wednesday, January 4-Friday, January 13. We will re-open Saturday, January 14.
Thanks to your calls and emails, A.4179 and A.4180, the anti- gun bills sponsored by Assemblyman Ralph Caputo (D-28), were removed from Monday’s NJ Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee’s agenda. As written, these bills require target shooters to produce a state issued ID along with an FID card or a purchase permit before using a range.
As a way of saying thank you for your support in this crucial matter and for your support throughout the year, Cedar Creek Sporting Clays will be offering a complimentary lunch to all shooters on Saturday, December 10th. Come on out, shoot some clays and enjoy a great day at the range!
While A.4179 and A.4180 might have been removed from Monday’s agenda, these bills are by no means dead. Opposition from gun owners has resulted in the bills being held for further discussion. Again, thank you to our shooters who contacted committee members in opposition to these anti-gun bills. Your action made all the difference. Again, there will be no hearing on these bills Monday.
Shooting ranges as we know them may be a thing of the past if anti-gun politicians have their way in the Garden State. A pair of dangerous bills are scheduled to be heard in the Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee as early as Monday, December 5.
A.4179 and A.4180, sponsored by Assemblyman Ralph Caputo (D-28), require target shooters to produce a state issued ID along with an FID card or a purchase permit before using a range. Even if you have a firearms id card, this affects you because you will have nowhere to shoot. New Jersey has been notorious for delaying issuance of those documents, and this bill would ban using ranges without such paperwork. In addition, the bills as written contain excessive “transfer” prohibitions where simply handing a gun between an instructor and a student would be a serious issue. Hunter safety courses, family days at the range, open houses and new shooter introduction events would all be jeopardized. Even law enforcement members would have a hard time using ranges to train or qualify.
