Instead of requiring stores to only sell smart guns three years after they are introduced in the U.S., Sen. Loretta Weinberg wants to amend the law to have retailers offer smart guns alongside their other products.
Members of the Assembly are considering a bill that would allow domestic violence victims to report firearms that haven't been seized to a court for removal. Critics say the bill misses the mark because New Jersey's definition of domestic abuse is too broad.
New Jersey has a law on the books that says three years after the first smart gun is sold anywhere in the country, state firearms dealers can only sell smart guns. That law has led to threats against store owners who try to sell the new technology.
