Governor Phil Murphy has signed A-2846 into law today. We have been victorious in rectifying an issue brought on by a recently enacted law that restricted the number of rounds of ammunition that law enforcement could possess. We pushed hard to have it clarified and codified into law that active on and off duty officers were not restricted to less than 17 rounds of ammunition. The new law makes it clear that the number of rounds of ammunition that can be possessed and carried will increase to 17 for active on and off duty officers and 15 rounds for retired officers.
This law wouldn’t have happened without us. FOP STRONG!
