New Jersey: Final Gun Control Legislation Passes Senate and Awaits Governor Chris Christie’s Signature
Posted on June 28, 2013
Only weeks after some anti-gun state Senators were caught on a live microphone discussing the need for “confiscation” of firearms after a Senate Budget Committee hearing, their Assembly colleagues fumbled through an embarrassing hearing this week on Senate Bill 2723/Assembly Bill 4182. The New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee failed to garner enough votes to pass the centerpiece gun control bill offered by Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3).
Yesterday, the New Jersey Assembly took another step toward finalizing extreme gun control measures which have been hotly contested all year. Despite loud protest from lawful gun owners across the Garden State over the last several months, state lawmakers continued on their relentless course toward even more gun control.
