United States Third Circuit

Association New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs v. Governor of the State of New Jersey, 12-1624

Plaintiffs' motion to enjoin New Jersey statute that prohibits the purchase or sale of more than one handgun per person per month, including B-B and air guns, was properly denied and their case dismissed, where: 1) because the statute regulates but does not prohibit the sale of B-B and air guns, it is not preempted by 15 USC section 5001(g)(ii); 2) implementation of the statute's exemptions does not violate due process; and 3) the district court properly declined jurisdiction over plaintiffs' state law claims.
