New Jersey’s Prohibition on Large Capacity Magazines

December 28, 2018

The Governor of the State of New Jersey recently signed an amendment to the State’s firearms law which prohibits the possession of large capacity ammunition magazines. This new law defines a large capacity magazine as capable of holding more than ten (10) rounds of ammunition to be fed continuously into semi-automatic firearms. Violation of this law constitutes a crime in New Jersey. Please read the following NYPD Finest Message (pdf file) which outlines the particulars of this new law, currently in effect.
