MEDIA ADVISORY - LESNIAK TO UNVEIL ‘VIOLENCE COMMISSION’ LEGISLATION TOMORROW

Measure Would Declare Violence a Public Health Emergency, Support Stronger Gun Control Measures and Expand Mental Health Programs to Defuse Violence in NJ Communities

TRENTON – Senator Raymond J. Lesniak, along with Salaam Ismial, Director, National United Youth Council, and a representative from Union County's Mental Health Court, will be on hand tomorrow, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19 at 11:00 AM in STATEHOUSE ROOM 103 across from the Senate Chambers to unveil the Senator’s legislation to reduce violence in New Jersey communities.

“As President Obama so eloquently stated at the Sandy Hook Prayer Vigil, ‘No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. But that can't be an excuse for inaction,’” said Senator Lesniak, D-Union. “We cannot simply accept the status quo any longer when children are being gunned down in classrooms in Connecticut or on the streets in urban New Jersey. It’s time that we get serious about reducing violence and protecting the innocent from becoming victims.”
