Johnson: Christie Again Puts Politics above Public Safety

(TRENTON) – Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen) released the following statement Wednesday after Gov. Christie conditionally vetoed legislation (A-1426) he sponsored to establish a commission to approve personalized handguns and require firearm retailers to sell personalized handguns:

“The governor’s veto statement is alarmingly replete with right-wing political talking points and grandstanding.
“This bill was a start toward making our streets safer, particularly in our urban areas, but sadly, Gov. Christie has once again put his political ambitions above the public safety of New Jersey residents. That’s shameful.”
