    "prohibited by name"

    What does it mean when a firearm is 'prohibited by name'? Why do they not just say 'prohibited'? I was reading that the AR-15 is 'prohibited by name in New Jersey'. Just wondering...Is there some other similar firearm that's not called AR-15 and thus not prohibited? Sort of like a generic version???

    The phrase should be defined in the law that created or uses the term.

    IE, '"Prohibited by name" is defined as......'

    Since many laws are state-, county-/parish- and city-authored, the definition can change simply by crossing an imaginary line.

    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    The Sig Sauer MCX is not called an AR15 and is different from your usual AR15 in some ways such as not having the typical buffer tube and being gas piston versus DI.

    Crappy New Jersey gun laws.

    Here's an Idea, get a Ruger Mini 14 or a Saiga 5.56 Sporter. Have shot a Mini 14 before and it is OK but have never shot the Saiga or even handled one. Manufactured by Kalishnakov (of the AK-47 fame). I guess the Saiga may be considered an AK platform but it doesn't come stock looking like the typical AR platform firearm.

    But I'm sure the socialist government of New Jersey has both these guns on the "Banned List"...

    Based on this link https://www.njsp.org/firearms/coltma...ingfield.shtml these 2 guns are OK in Jersey;

    Springfield M1A- Simply AWESOME!

    And Colt Match Grade in 5.56 that does not look like a typcial AR15...

    Annie, in my travels I have owned a traditional AR-15, an AR-15 with a heavy barrel for varmints, an HBAR and a CAR. You'll notice that I sold them all.

    If I had to chuck a 5.56 NATO round at some Muslim interloper, I would buy a a Mini-14.

    I absolutely prefer the Mini 14 over an AR of any brand.
    I paid $400 for my 1999 Ranch Rifle.

    When the Aussies jumped on "gun control" a while back , Remington made a very nice pump .223 that takes AR magazines. The remington website is a clusterfuk and can't find a link. Maybe search remington australia. I hope remington survives as a USA gun maker

    I wish mini 14 was more garand action. Their 308 version could not hit a thing and they dropped it.

    I do like the mini 14 though.

    Edit: Crap heads at Remington dropped that nice pump 223. Mexifornia and New Jersey would have been a good market these days.

    Too bad azz hats are running the show at Remington.

    Ruger makes/made a Mini-30 that fired the 7.62x39, and if I was in the need of a 7.62 slug, this would be my rifle and cartridge of choice. I think you can buy three 7.62x39 rounds for the cost of a .308. Further, I like flat shooters, and I would pick the .243 WIN round if I needed the same case.
