CFPA's High Impact Peace and Gun Safety Advocacy is resulting in more successes, even as we are in the midst of the summer!
On July 16 a CFPA delegation led by Ceasefire NJ (CFNJ) Legislative Director Dolores Phillips joined NJ Gov. Phil Murphy as he signed four new gun safety bills into law! They include:
S101 (Weinberg, Codey/Johnson, Vainieri Huttle, Wimberly) - Establishes commission to approve personalized handguns; requires firearm retailers to sell personalized handguns.
S3897 (Weinberg, Greenstein/Greenwald, Reynolds-Jackson) - Criminalizes purchase, transfer, or possession of certain weapons and ammunition by persons convicted of certain crimes; establishes crime of transferring or possessing firearm without serial number.
A4449 (Tully, Swain/Singleton, O’Scanlon) - Establishes crime of soliciting transfer of firearm by disqualified person.
A3896 (Downey, Houghtaling, Schaer/Cryan) - Requires AG and Commissioner of Health to establish suicide prevention training course and informational materials for firearm retail dealers.
There are nine more bills that CFPA's CFNJ Project is spearheading in the NJ legislature. Last year, NJ passed eight new gun safety bills, more than any other state!

In addition, key peace bills to permanently end the Korean War; and mandate No War with Iran unless Congress approves it, as constitutionally required, recently passed in the US House before Congress adjourned for its summer recess.
CFPA has been vigorously advocating these measures for many months. Below see a delegation meeting with Rep. Andy Kim, the only Korean American in Congress, who became a prime sponsor of the Peace in Korea bill.
