Graves Act

BB Guns and Graves Act

Possesion of BB Guns should not fall under the Graves Act for first time offenders. Likewise,   Pretrial Intervention should be available to these individuals.  All too often a young person or out of state resident is properly transporting said BB gun and ends up unwittingly with a 3rd Deg. Offense or worse- prison.  This is a clear example of the pendulum swinging too far. The NJ legislature needs to address and correct this over punishment of unwitting 1st time offenders.  The scar of a 3rd deg. conviction will forever negatively impact a young persons life for the rest of their life. Was that the intent of the legislature?
