Speaker Coughlin Statement on New Gun Safety Laws

Gov. Murphy Signed Six Gun Safety Bills Sponsored by Assembly Democrats

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement Wednesday after Gov. Murphy signed six gun safety bills into law.

“These laws, which I am proud the Assembly fought for tirelessly, further our commitment to keeping New Jerseyans safe, and keeping guns away from people who are unstable and possibly dangerous. People should not live in fear of doing simple, everyday things because there might be an unhinged individual looking to do them harm. These laws will help provide our families with the peace of mind and sense of security that they expect and deserve. I commend Gov. Murphy for signing these bills, and my colleagues for bringing them to the table.”
