Do you have some actual evidence to support that conjecture or are you just playing around taking cheap shots at New Jersey? Bashing states just for fun is not helpful.
A little of both. I've read accounts of this sort of thing happening in NJ, and I exaggerated a little just for fun.
In one case, if I can remember it correctly, someone won a Marlin .22 autoloader in a police benefit auction. Some years later, they were arrested for possession of that same rifle and charged with a felony because the tubular magazine holds too many rounds. (not sure if it's too many .22LR's, or potentially
could hold too many if you load .22 Shorts.)
NJ police and politicians are *so* antigun (about like NYC but more corrupt) I really don't know how anybody lives there. Props to any gun owners who can manage it.
I think my main point is still valid; it depends on the politics of what state you are in, and maybe what county.
