One Handgun Per Month - NJ

Not much traffic in this subforum, and I'm sure everyone already knows, but in case there are any uninformed individuals:

(TRENTON) – Legislation Assemblywoman Joan M. Quigley sponsored to make it illegal to buy more than one handgun a month in New Jersey - a restriction aimed at helping curtail gun access by criminal street gangs – received final legislative approval early this morning. The Senate voted 21-15 to approve the bill. It was approved by the Assembly in June 2008 and now goes to the governor.
If enacted, New Jersey would become the fourth state to restrict handgun purchases to one a month, behind Virginia, Maryland, and California.
“There’s no good reason why anyone would need to purchase large quantities of handguns all at once,” said Quigley (D-Hudson). “Providing criminals and gang leaders one-stop shopping to outfit themselves with weapons is the obvious implication of bulk handgun purchasing.”
Here's the list of sponsors so you know who not to vote for:
