My friend Jason mentioned a .22LR semi automatic he used when he was a kid called the J.C. Higgins Model 29:
It’s got a 17 round tubular magazine. These were sold through Sears back in the days when Sears actually sold firearms. But “What?” You say, “That doesn’t look like an assault weapon.” Oh but it is! The State of New Jersey defines an assault weapon as any firearms with a magazine capacity greater than 15 rounds, or any detachable magazine that’s greater than 15 rounds. It’s not just a mere technicality. There have been people sent to prison in New Jersey for possessing one of these or similar firearms.
The powers that be in New Jersey are not kidding. They do not like gun owners, and do not believe you should own a gun. If my friend Jason were to take his model 29 over the river, they’d send him up the river. Next time The Brady Campaign, or anyone else tells you all they want are “reasonable gun control laws”, kick them in the nuts.
UPDATE: Thanks to Jason for providing a better picture than the one I was able to find online!
