[…] both houses of the Legislature passed another gun-control bill Monday, to ban "ghost guns" and 3-D printable guns in New Jersey.

The measure (S2465/A3129) would prohibit the purchase and assembly of untraceable firearm components used to make homemade guns without serial numbers. 

The Senate passed it, 31-0, and the Assembly 68-5, with three abstentions, at the Statehouse in Trenton. [Gov Phil] Murphy must now sign the legislation for it to become law.

The legislation passed amidst Murphy’s continuing push to make New Jersey a leader in gun regulation. He signed a package of six gun laws in June, and has promised “gun safety package 2.0” in the coming months.

LEAP Forward has scored the final votes on S2465.

New Jersey is already ranked #2 among all states for the strength of the state’s gun laws by the Giffords Law Center.
