(TRENTON) - Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) will join the national call for tougher gun safety laws this weekend when he speaks at the local One Million Moms for Gun Control Rally in Jersey City on Saturday, January 26.
"The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown was absolutely devastating. While the headlines about this tragic and senseless shooting may have waned, the urgency for protecting our communities from gun violence has not," said Greenwald. "Preventing senseless gun violence is an issue that must be confronted in a comprehensive way, and President Obama has been a leader in setting the stage for stronger federal gun safety measures. It is up to us to keep the momentum going and keep the pressure on our representatives in Washington to make sure they put the safety of our children first and implement the policies that will help prevent the next tragedy."

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
