TRENTON, N.J. – Today the New Jersey chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, applauded the New Jersey State Senate for passing bills to help prevent gun violence. These bills are now headed to Governor Murphy’s desk, and he has indicated support. These bills include:
STATEMENT FROM BRETT SABO, VOLUNTEER LEADER WITH THE NEW JERSEY CHAPTER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:
“Gun safety measures such as background checks, high-capacity magazine limits and a system to empower families and law enforcement to act on red flags before they escalate into tragedies can all help save lives. We are thrilled our lawmakers listened to New Jerseyans who want to do more to prevent gun violence in our communities. The passage of these bills reaffirms that New Jersey is a national leader on common-sense gun policies, and we look forward to watching Governor Murphy sign them into law.”
