Wagner to Participate in Million Mom March for Gun Control in Washington DC

(Trenton) - Assemblywoman Connie Wagner announced plans to attend the Million Mom March for Gun Control in Washington DC on Saturday, January 26. The legislative office also will organize bus trip for Bergen County residents to also attend the event.

"Gun control is a critical community issue heightened by the recent unspeakable tragedy in Connecticut," said Wagner (D-Bergen/Passaic). "I look forward to joining with the residents of Bergen County and Moms from across the country to march for impactful legislative action to occur nationally and within each state that would help us take the reigns on gun control.

"We will go to Washington to represent our state in the fight against senseless gun crimes occurring far too often in this country. It is time the nation takes a stand and New Jersey will be there."

Residents wishing to participate in March for Gun Control and bus trip to Washington may contact Julie O'Brien at the 38th District Legislative Office (201) 576-9199 or by email, AswWagner@njleg.org.

One Million Moms for Gun Control is the co-sponsor of the March on Washington for Gun Control in Washington, DC, on Sat., Jan 26. The goal of the march is to demand immediate action on common-sense gun legislation. More information on march logistics is available from the March on Washington for Gun Control at: http://www.guncontrolmarch.com.

The March will begin at the Capitol Reflecting Pool on 3rd St--across from the Museum of the American Indian-- and progress down Constitution, ending in a rally with speeches and music at the Washington Monument NE quadrant.

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
