New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal has been caught in a massive scandal involving the use of undercover detectives who used entrapment to take out gun manufactures and dealers from other states. A small mom-and-pop firearms retailer based in Florida, 22Mods4ALL, is being targeted.  AG Grewal asserted that the small retailer tried to sell 30-round magazines to undercover detectives from New Jersey, these magazines are illegal in the state of New Jersey but legal in the state of Florida.

An undercover detective purchased 3 magazines from the retailer and then 3 more shortly after, the retailer was then met with a cease and desist letter from the AG’s office. Despite the small store honoring the cease and desist letter from the state, this was not the end of AG Grewal’s persecution. AG Gurbir Grewal would then seek the records of all sales data related to the state from the store, this included the purchaser’s address, their identity, and what it was that they had ordered. The store refused this order, now a judge has stepped in and demanded that this small firearms retailer comply and pay a $150,000 civil fine for their refusal to cooperate.

This is just a new form of gun control as the Second Amendment Foundation points out.

From The Second Amendment Foundation:

The New Jersey AG is weaponizing his office to push a political agenda, according to former Florida prosecutor Lisa Chittaro.

Last year, Chittaro ran for State Attorney of Sarasota County, but lost during the Republican primary to the incumbent. She had been endorsed by the National Rifle Association in the race.

“This is a crafty and questionable use of litigation,” Chittaro said. “Because of their elected position, this seems designed to impede and attack a legitimate business – a business that did not target the citizens of that state – for the sole purpose of attacking the Second Amendment.

“This attorney general is trying to harness access and regulate the spread of the internet, and hold a legitimate business accountable,” Chittaro said. “This is an attack on the Free Market, an attack on the Second Amendment – it’s an attack. They are using their office as a political weapon. They are pushing through their political agenda of gun control, and they are overreaching into the state of Florida. New Jersey is trying to put a legitimate Florida firm out of business.”

This assault on a small firearms retailer in another state is almost sure to put them out of business if this proves true and 22Mods4ALL goes under expect other states to engage in similar tactics.

This was the NJ AG’s office not ATF, however it seems both agencies are going out of their way to target small businesses and individuals (easy targets) instead of using their investigative tools on much more important violators, many in their own back yards!

Frankly, all of the alphabet agencies are out of control, and threat to the Constitution at this point. Shut them down, fire everyone and start over.

This should be an easy one. Is it illegal to sell or just to have in new jersey? It is NOT illegal to sell in Florida. Shut case. If it is illegal to sell to people that live in new Jersey then they might have a case.
