TRENTON, N.J. - Six gun bills cleared the New Jersey legislature and are headed to the governor's desk.
The measures are aimed at keeping guns away from those who pose threats.
The bills would reduce magazine capacity and require background checks for private gun sales.
They would also ban armor piercing ammunition and counter efforts to weaken gun safety regulations.
Governor Phil Murphy is expected to sign them into law.
