Next Actionable Step in Effort to Stem Gun Violence--Greenwald Six-Bill Package Bolsters Trauma Treatment in Hospitals throughout NJ

Setting the next course of action toward preventing gun violence in the state, Assemblyman Lou Greenwald introduced six legislative measures that will work to stem gun violence by engaging patients in the hospital, during their recovery and in the community following a firearm incident, putting much needed attention on mental health and counseling needs of gun violence victims.

In a recently published op-ed, Dr. Stephanie Bonne of University Hospital in Newark - the only hospital in the state with a fully operating community-based intervention program - spoke of gun violence as a public health crisis and described a particular approach to addressing it.

"Dr. Bonne made a poignant statement in her op-ed, 'Physicians, in general, are not anti-gun, we are anti-bullet hole.' We should all be too as legislators and policymakers," said Greenwald (D-Camden, Burlington). "A coordinated approach is the best way to tackle public health problems of mental health and violence. Community- and hospital-based prevention services are the key to improving safety in our communities." For More
