McKeon, Prieto & Greenwald Bill to Create Statewide Gun Buyback Program Clears Assembly PanelLegislation sponsored by Assemblyman John McKeon (D-Essex/Morris), Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) and Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) to create a statewide gun buyback program to cut back on the number of firearms out in communities throughout the state was released Monday by an Assembly panel.
"Gun violence claims lives everyday. In some communities, it is an-all too common reality," said McKeon. "We realize a gun buyback program alone will not eliminate gun violence, but it can help enhance public safety by reducing the number of firearms in circulation."
