On May 9 New Jersey state senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37) told MSNBC that she and fellow lawmakers would “reverse” a 2002 law limiting gun sales to smart guns “only if the National Rifle Association (NRA) vows not to try to stop the…manufacture or sale of smart guns.”

Breitbart News reported that the 2002 is designed to go into effect three years after a “viable” smart gun is available on the retail market. Once in effect, the law states that “no other type of handgun shall be sold or offered for sale by any registered or licensed firearm dealer in this state.”
Smart gun proponents have seized on the Armatix iP1 as the “viable” smart gun to trigger the law, although the gun is only chambered in .22 long rifle, costs $1,800 a gun, and is already being targeted by tech companies who are working on ways to jam the gun electronically, so that it will not fire.
Gun rights proponents in New Jersey have opposed the marketing of the gun because they do not want to be forced to buy it and be further forced to depend on it to defend their lives or property.
