Members Discuss Methods, Urgency of Enhancing Gun Violence Prevention in the State in Advance of Wednesday Committees Focused Exclusively on Gun Violence Prevention Legislation

(TRENTON) - Assembly Democratic members issued a multimedia package on Monday in which they discuss the need for and their desire to address gun violence prevention in New Jersey in advance of a special Wednesday Assembly committee day devoted exclusively to examining the issue.

Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex), Assembly Majority Conference Leader Gordon M. Johnson (D-Bergen), Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee Chair Charles Mainor (D-Hudson), Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee members Joseph Cryan (D-Union) and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer), and Assembly members Jason O'Donnell (D-Hudson) and Connie Wagner (D-Bergen) all added their voices to the growing call for swift, sensible gun violence prevention in the state.

The call to action comes after a rash of devastating shootings across the country - including one this morning at the New Castle County, Delaware courthouse that left two people plus the gunman dead and two others wounded - placed the discussion of gun violence prevention front and center on the national stage and prefaces Assembly action on Wednesday on numerous pieces of gun violence prevention legislation.
