NV – RETAILERS – Las Vegas gun dealer will stop selling high-capacity magazines in NJ to settle lawsuit (VIDEO)

A Las Vegas gun dealer that allegedly sold undercover investigators six illegal high-capacity magazines — including a 100-round drum magazine for an AR-15 rifle — has promised to stop advertising and selling the merchandise in New Jersey, the state Attorney General’s Office said Thursday. New Frontier Armory, which bills itself online as Nevada’s premier gun store, will also pay the state $50,000 to settle Attorney General Gurbir Grewal’s 2019 lawsuit, which claimed the store sold the magazines despite knowing they were banned in New Jersey. The settlement “puts gun dealers on notice that we are closely monitoring internet weapons sales and will take immediate action against anyone who endangers our residents,” Grewal said in a statement. “Large-capacity magazines, which significantly increase a shooter’s ability to injure and kill large numbers of people quickly, are illegal in New Jersey, and we have zero tolerance for their sale here.” New Jersey outlawed magazines of more than 15 rounds three decades ago. Two years ago, Gov. Phil Murphy lowered the limit to 10 rounds as part of a package of gun control laws that state Democrats pushed through after a string of mass shootings rocked the nation. New Frontier Armory did not respond to a request for comment. The attorney general said in his lawsuit that New Frontier twice sold outlawed magazines of 15, 30 and 100 rounds to state investigators in 2018 and 2019.  [full article]
