Assembly Democrats Discuss Gun Violence Prevention in New Jersey in Advance of Wednesday Assembly Committee Action on Issue

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.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop
