So what does this mean exactly? "Gun trafficking" is already illegal, in that interstate firearms commerce is severely limited, and each state has the power to strictly regulate their own firearms trade. Are they just making the sentencing and fines harsher? Are there provisions to increase the enforcement? Or is this just another way to make sure that Uncle Bob can't give a deer rifle to his nephew without the Garden State having a say in the matter?
They're ramping up the penalties by changing the crime from "fourth degree" to "second degree", which has fairly stiff jail terms. They're probably targeting NJ gangs, not Uncle Bob. However, all you need is one prosecutor looking to generate some publicity and UB could be screwed.
