TRENTON, N.J. — A N.J. gun law needs exceptions for various groups — including retailers who will only be able to buy one handgun a month from suppliers — members of a task force reviewing the legislation said Tuesday.

The law, intended to restrict the flow of weapons to criminals, has riled gun advocates who say it penalizes law-abiding citizens like target shooters and collectors.

The task force’s central proposal would make it easier for gun store owners to stock their shelves while still limiting customers to buying one handgun every 30 days.

    This is exactly the kind of compromise the liberals want and expect. It is why gun control has already gone too far. Exempting gun stores is a total and complete loss for freedom. This is how liberals always seem to win. They push something too far and when the other side compromises it is what the liberals expected all along.

    The stance on limiting the exercise of a constitutional right to once per month on anyone should be fought outright and never compromised.

    The gun control groups have won if the law is allowed to pass at all.
