If you are a proud American gun owner, chances are that the state of New Jersey has been on your ever last nerve over the course of the last few months.

The Garden State, normally known for its love of Bruce Springsteen and the debauchery of MTV’s imbecilic “Jersey Shore” television program, has been at the forefront of knee-jerk, reactionary gun legislation that attempted to sweep the country in the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting back in February.

While New Jersey has always leaned liberal, this latest glut of gun grabbing legislation has been particularly difficult for supporters of the Second Amendment in that the hasty installment of such new laws has provided massive headaches in terms of enforcement.

Now, the inanity of one such regulation is being adjusted for the sake of common sense.

The state Senate on Thursday approved a rushed proposal to add a carve-out to New Jersey’s ban on “high-capacity” magazines for off-duty law enforcement.

The measure, S2846, was sponsored by the chamber’s top two Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg and Senate President Steve Sweeney, sailing to a 29-0 approval just two days after it was introduced. The bill allows off-duty officers in the state to have a detachable magazine loaded with as many as 17-rounds of ammunition in their possession for an issued-weapon, going beyond the current 10-round limit signed into law by Gov. Phil Murphy last month as part of a sweeping gun control package.

“This restriction ensures that the officer is not limited by civilian restrictions, but we also are being responsible by not giving carte blanche to an unlimited number of sanctioned large-capacity magazines,” said Weinberg in a statement.

The power of a “good guy with a gun” has been repeatedly demonstrated in this great nation of ours, despite the constant, defiant rhetoric of the liberal left.

Now, if we could only inject some sense into the rest of New Jersey’s insanely complicated and restrictive gun laws, we might truly protect the good people of the Garden State.
