TRENTON – Senator Raymond J. Lesniak will testify on his legislation which would declare violence as a “public health crisis,” would empanel a commission to look at ways to mitigate violence, and would recommend the federal adoption of stricter gun control standards at a hearing on Monday in the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee.
“The danger of gun violence in our communities has become a threat that is too great to ignore,” said Senator Lesniak, D-Union. “While there are no easy answers when it comes to reducing violent crime in New Jersey, there are certainly options available to us. If we are not willing to try, shame on us as a Legislature, and shame on us as a State.”
