NJ: Bill compromise to cap magazines at 10 rounds but allow shooters to stop for coffee

A deal has been made in the New Jersey legislature on two bills, a pro-gun control bill that would ban all magazines larger than ten rounds and a pro-gun bill that would allow gun owners, hunters, sportsmen to stop on the way to the range or woods for food, emergencies or other “reasonable” stops.
Check it out:

The magazine limit bill, formally titled A2006 (pdf) , would limit magazine size to no more than ten rounds and was introduced by Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-Camden) in January.

The same bill was submitted to the New Jersey Assembly and passed last year, but was defeated in the state Senate when Senate president Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester) blocked it from a vote.

However this session Sweeny has agreed to let the bill run its course in return for passage of a pro-gun bill that would allow shooters who are transiting from home to a shooting range to stop for “reasonable deviations,” which are currently not allowed.
