I simply would like to sling macadamia nuts or acorns at animals on my property ...no blood, no death, just a sting so they move on.
Why this legislation was not proofread and verified before signing is bizarre/incompetent.

Slingshots have the right to be used as sport shooting and hunting just as bows, crossbows and firearms.

I’m signing because laws that are ridiculous do not benefit the citizens of New Jersey, and worse, they lead to contempt for the just laws that the State makes. Please remove the ban on this classic children’s toy immediately.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This law is ridiculous. I used to have one as a young teen and i didn't hurt any living being with it. They are fun for target shooting.

Because I think it's absurd that slingshots and BB guns are illegal

Thanks for adding your voice.

NJ citizens have the right to peaceably engage in the traditional American sport of slingshots without exposing themselves to a felony arrest period.
