What Guns Are Outlawed?

According to a federal ban, all automatic weapons are banned from private ownership in the United States, with few exceptions. This includes the following types of guns:

  • Automatic rifles
  • Machine pistols
  • Automatic shotguns

Outside of machine guns, which are defined as any weapon that fires two or more rounds when the trigger is pulled once, the state of New Jersey has some additional laws regarding other weapons. These limitations prevent anyone in the state of New Jersey from owning or operating a weapon with a clip capacity over 15 rounds. Also, some semiautomatic firearms are altogether banned by the state.

In the state of New Jersey, gun possession crimes are treated harshly by the state, and these crimes are treated differently depending on the circumstances of the event. These charges can include jail time, strict financial penalties that may cost a defendant thousands of dollars if convicted. Other penalties can include lengthy probation periods, loss of employment opportunities, and a future loss of gun rights.
