NJ Assembly Takes Up 4 Gun Bills

advertisement

The Assembly is planning final votes on the first four new gun-related laws expected to reach Gov. Chris Christie's desk.
 
The bills scheduled for a vote Monday afternoon would create a task force to look into school security and require that certain mental health records to be submitted for background checks for those seeking gun permits.

 
They also would mandate the disposal of unlawful weapons and require more sharing of firearms information among law enforcement agencies.
 
The laws are among several the Democratic-controlled Assembly has taken up since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting last year that killed 20 children.
 
Christie, a Republican, has said he's open to some more restrictions on guns in conjunction with laws on mental health issues and restrictions on video games.
