NJ gun laws strike again

im seriously thinking about not moving back.

Quote:
PARSIPPANY -- Assault rifles and other high-powered weapons were among more than 40 guns confiscated Thursday morning from a Lake Hiawatha house after authorities raided the home and arrested its owner, Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi said.

Police converged at the 43 Roosevelt Ave. home of Adam Coughlan at 12:15 a.m. and found that many of the firearms were fully loaded, in addition to recovering thousands of rounds of ammunition, Bianchi said.

Coughlan was taken into custody without incident, said Captain Jeffrey Paul of the prosecutor's office.

Bianchi said the suspect was charged with three counts of unlawful possession of an assault firearm with a high-capacity detachable magazine and unlawful possession of high-capacity magazines. He was remanded to the Morris County jail on $200,000 cash bail.

Bianchi declined to elaborate on what led to the arrest, which came after what authorities described as a short-term undercover gun investigation.

Parsippany Police Chief Michael Peckerman, asked about the gun seizure, said it was not the largest in the town's history. Peckerman alluded to a narcotics investigation in the late 1980s which netted approximately 100 firearms.

The investigation was conducted by the prosecutor's Intelligence Crime Task Force and Major Crimes Unit, in partnership with the Parsippany police and the county sheriff's office.

"This arrest again represents the benefits of pursuing an intelligence/community led policing strategy," Bianchi said.

Bianchi said his office is working with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the state police and county sheriff's office to determine whether the seized weapons were used in any other violent crimes.

"This investigation is ongoing and it will take us several days to sort through the voluminous amounts of evidence which was seized. Additional charges are anticipated," Bianchi said.

State Attorney General Anne Milgram also issued a statement on the arrest.

"This is another example of how important it is for law enforcement agencies at the federal, state, county and local levels to share information and resources and target the most dangerous suspects, I applaud Prosecutor Bianchi and the team he put together in this investigation in getting this cache of dangerous weapons off the streets," Milgram said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the MCPO, (973) 285-6200 or CrimeStoppers, (973) 267-2255 or (973) CopCall.

Re: NJ gun laws strike again

I love how they always refer to them as &quot;dangerous weapons&quot;, there only as dangerous as the retard holding them.

Re: NJ gun laws strike again

&quot;assault weapons&quot; are just as dangerous as anything else if put in the wrong hands. i dont understand why a person who is otherwise a law abiding citizen cannot have weapons of their choice.

Re: NJ gun laws strike again

The only reason i disagree with you is because, well i just dont trust people, and even if a law abiding person has one a theif can always take it. And in the wrong hands an assult rifel CAN be a hell of a lot more dengerous then say a 22 or a 9mm, 357, or 45. Id love to have an Ar-15 but if i got stolen and use to hurt someone innosent id feel bad. But then again if it was used too mow down a couple gang bangers, id be pretty damn happy.

All in all I agree with you, other then this isnt a perfect world... But then again if it were we wouldnt need guns, or would we????? I did read an article in the paper tho, saying volient crimes, in PA, were down some 30% since they made it EASYER to cary. HEHEHEHEHEHE

Re: NJ gun laws strike again

i actually read the nra&#039;s factsheet about pa gun laws, and i have to say. i may move there when i get out instead of back to nj.
an assault rifle is no more dangerous than a hunting rifle. most hunting rifles shoot bigger rounds than the machine gun i tote around every day. that said a &quot;assault rifle&quot; is no more powerful than a self feeding hunting rifle. magazine capacity its totally ridiculous. a skilled shooter can rotate through magazines so fast it doesnt matter if it holds 10 or 30

One could argue it&#039;s pretty &quot;retarded&quot; to keep 40 guns in your home fully loaded

Ya I saw a few of them sharp shooter shows, dude using a revolver poping of all 6 rounds in well under 2 seconds hitting the bullseye every time, swaping out a clip or wat ever u call it the revolvers have, faster then you can see. I saw some SICK fricken shooters, dudes youd be dumb to try to rob at gun point, draw and fire so fast your filled with lead before you even have time to react. And you know what, they were all stand up guys, who have a passion for guns and and hittin there mark. One dude caped a pain pill he through in the air him self with both a revoler and a rifel. He nailed the pill on the first shot with both guns. Point is we dont need gun controll we need retard controll.

RIF Alec - &quot;many of the firearms were fully loaded&quot; How many is many? How many is too many?

I keep at least one loaded gun in the house. No sense having it for self defense if it isn&#39;t loaded.

During the elections I had most of my guns at the ready due to locals stating they were going to riot whether or not BHO was going to win.

I&#39;d hate to hear what they say about my collection. WWII Russian battle rifles = &quot;high powered sniper rifles that can shoot through buildings&quot;... &quot;Shotguns that can hold 8 rounds and mow down whole fields of deer without reloading&quot;... &quot;AR15s just like they use in the Army&quot;... &quot;AK47s which are favored by terrorists and gang-bangers.&quot; o_O I keep mine in a safe when not in use, however. I don&#39;t want anyone to break in while I am not home and take anything. You lock your car so someone doesn&#39;t steal it and run someone over, right? Same concept with firearms.


I love how they also commented on the BATF checking the guns for &quot;use in any OTHER violent crimes.&quot; How was it a violent crime to own a firearm? No other crime was stated in the report. Some nosy neighbor probably called him in for mowing before noon on a Saturday. :/


I&#39;ll have to keep an eye on the thread and see if any valid criminal offenses pop up.

I can&#39;t find anything on magazine capacity bans or EBR bans. I guess I&#39;ll have to check the AR15.com hometown forum when I get home.

Re: NJ gun laws strike again

40 guns and only 3 were assault rifles? thats a pretty small percentage of the collection.

And I didn&#039;t realize NJ had such strict laws... Sucks for the people living there.

Re: NJ gun laws strike again

Personally, I feel a ton safer living in an area where people aren&#039;t allowed to stockpile firearms. So that pretty much wouldn&#039;t suck
