New Jersey Adds Certain Air Rifles To ‘Assault Weapons’ List




” The Garden State is adding an entire class of air rifles to their banned “Assault Weapons” list. The New Jersey Firearms Investigation Unit, which in accordance with state law, has declared that air rifles featuring noise reduction devices count as suppressed firearms, which are banned.

Lumping them in with silencers, the New Jersey State Police has made the decision to add all air rifles equipped with noise reducers to their list of illegal guns — specifically the Gamo Whisper .177 and .22 DX models and anything “substantially identical.” The New Jersey police consider any noise reducer that uses internal baffles a silencer.

The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) recently obtained a copy of the new interpretation and posted it on their website.

“By definition, the Gamo Whisper is considered a firearm by NJS 2C:39-1f,” reads Lieutenant Joseph Genova’s notice (.pdf). “As such, the definition of a firearm silencer is defined by NJS 2C:391g which states, ‘”Firearm silencer” means any instrument, attachment, weapon or appliance for causing the firing of any gun, revolver, pistol or other firearm.’” “
