New Jersey settled a suit against a Nevada-based gun dealer after it agreed to stop selling large-capacity magazines in the state and pay a $50,000 fine, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced Thursday.
New Jersey last year passed a law limiting the maximum capacity of magazines to 10 rounds, but New Frontier Armory LLC continued to sell larger magazines in the state, including two online sales to undercover law enforcement officials. One of the sales was made after the state issued a cease-and-desist order.
“This settlement not only holds New Frontier Armory accountable for its unlawful conduct, but also puts gun dealers on notice that we are closely monitoring internet weapons sales and will take immediate action against anyone who endangers our residents by selling and shipping deadly and unlawful firearms and magazines into our state,” Grewal said.
The state launched the suit against the firearms dealer last June.
As part of the settlement, the company will block shipping of large capacity magazines to all New Jersey addresses and include links detailing the state’s magazine restrictions.
