Gov. Murphy urges lawmakers to pass gun safety bills introduced 1 year ago
Gov. Phil Murphy is renewing his call for the state Legislature to pass a series of gun safety bills.
The package of bills was first unveiled a year ago.
The bills would change requirements on storing guns, increase the age requirement for purchasing shotguns and rifles from 18 to 21 and mandate all dealers keep logs of ammunition sales.
“I urge the Legislature to get these laws passed now so we can continue making our streets and communities safer for all who are proud to call New Jersey home,” Murphy wrote in a tweet.
Critics of the plans say that the bills won’t curb gun violence because they largely target law-abiding gun owners.
