(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Lou Greenwald, Joseph Cryan, Tim Eustace, Gabriela Mosquera, Jason O'Donnell, Mila Jasey, Annette Quijano, Charles Mainor and John F. Mckeon to limit how ammunition is sold in New Jersey and require better record keeping of ammunition sales in order to improve accountability was approved Wednesday by an Assembly panel.
"Right now it is too easy for individuals set on harming others to purchase round after round of ammunition without even leaving their homes," said Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington). "We are too familiar with the terrible tragedy this gap in the law can bring - as we saw in Aurora, Colorado. This is not about targeting responsible, law-abiding gun owners, but rather those individuals who stockpile bullets with deadly intentions."

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
