A New Jersey gun rights group has filed a motion to block enforcement of a ban on ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs asked the U.S. District Court of New Jersey to prevent the enforcement of the ban while the court considers the group's case.

The law in question requires anyone in New Jersey that possesses an ammunition magazine that holds more than 10 rounds to permanently modify it, transfer it out of New Jersey, or hand it in to police within 180 days, The Free Beacon reported.

If the court needs more than 180 days on the case, those who have such magazines could be made to comply with the law even if that law is later found unconstitutional, the report said.

"This unconstitutional law will be ignored by criminals and madmen, and affects only law-abiding citizens," the club's executive director Scott Bach wrote in a statement when the group filed its suit June 14.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed six gun control measures into law on June 13.
