Governor Christie has been consistently wrong on gun control.
His decisions to veto sensible and bipartisan gun violence prevention legislation and to relax enforcement of existing regulations have made us less safe.
It’s time for the state Legislature to override Christie’s vetoes. Watch the video, and then call Republican leaders and ask them to stand with New Jerseyans instead of Christie and the NRA.
As governor, I would sign every piece of commonsense legislation that Christie vetoed; mandate gun safety training; promote smart gun technology; and tax gun sales to fund law enforcement, mental health services, and drug treatment.
But New Jersey’s families and communities can’t wait any longer for new leadership to get guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, terrorists, and gang members.
We need action now. Call the Republican leadership today:
Senator Thomas Kean: (908) 232-3673
Assemblyman Jon Bramnick: (908) 232-2073
