It’s been 9 months since NJ put its new magazine restrictions in place. Prior to this latest law, the magazine limit was 15 rounds. Since January of this year, it was reduced (see how these work?) to 10 rounds. The magazines have to be destroyed or turned into the State Police. The total number of magazines turned is at a staggering “0”! How’s that working out?
They know that there are thousands of illegal magazines in the state but basically there’s complete non compliance. I intimately know a guy who had just bought 3-15 round magazines before the law was enacted.

Unconstitutional Official Acts

16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256:

The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be In agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:

The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.....

A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the lend, it is superseded thereby.

No one Is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.

Or the individual brags about it on Facebook.

Stupid people will still be stupid. Even still its an unConstitutional law. With this said no one single person has the money to fight it in court yet these laws should have never been made into law. The courts are bias against firearms, the Seconded Amendment, and do the politicians bidding and by being these - illegal, unjust, and corrupt

In 2019, if you still have a Fakebook account, you have bigger problems than an illegal 15-round magazine.

It would astound you what I see on Facebook. I stalk people there professionally, 8 hours a day.

I've seen the police catch felons with firearms, because they posted a video of range day.

Search warrants because they were selling drugs...on Facebook.

Legal gun owners fined by fish and wildlife, because they posted duck hunting pictures days or weeks before the season started.

States attorney filing a criminal complaint because one person sold too many cars in a year. (Without proper licensure.)

Social media will get at least a few caught. But yes, I agree. If you're just an "innocent user" of Facebook in 2019, you're just not that bright.


Edit: Make no mistake, I know for a fact that even your local police department has a team dedicated to watching your social media.
