Building on the advocacy by CFPA's Ceasefire NJ Project (see CFNJ representatives testifying to NJ Senate Committee above), A4218, the bill for guns to be removed from those with restraining orders passed both Houses of the NJ Legislature late afternoon on June 25.
Passage was by strong majorities: in the NJ Assembly, which voted first, it was 49 yes, 11 no, and 19 abstentions. In the NJ Senate, it was 29 yes, 1 no, and 10 abstentions.
NJ Gov Chris Christie's may have to make a decision soon whether to sign, veto, or conditionally veto. It is urgent that NJ residents let him know we, his constituents, want him to sign it into law! We urge all NJ supporters to call (609) 292-6000 and/or click here to send an email demanding that he sign the domestic gun violence prevention bill; no veto or conditional veto!
