Gov. Murphy: “I Am Furious That the Gun Lobby is Trying to Dismantle Our State’s Strong Gun Safety Laws”

Governor Murphy today release a statement on the recent legal filing by the gun lobby pushing for more guns at New Jersey playgrounds and youth sports games:

“At a time when parents across New Jersey are sending their kids back to school, I am furious that the gun lobby is trying to dismantle our state’s strong gun safety laws by advocating for more guns in playgrounds and youth sports games. These extreme right-wing organizations will not relent until guns are allowed everywhere, especially places with children.

“New Jersey is one of the safest states in the nation in no small part due to our strong gun safety laws, including our longstanding verification procedures that make sure firearms-carriers do not pose a threat to public safety. While greed and fanaticism continue to fuel the gun lobby, public safety will always guide our decisions.

“I am proud that the vast majority of our law restricting concealed carry of firearms in sensitive locations has been upheld by the Third Circuit and am grateful to everyone who worked on that law, including Senate President Scutari and Speaker Coughlin, for helping to keep our residents safe. We will remain steadfast in defending our nation-leading gun safety laws and maintaining our position as a national leader in protecting families from gun violence.”

  1. “Gun safety laws” = disarm law-abiding citizens laws, and deprive us (as much as possible) of our 2nd Amendment right to self-defense. I’m sick and tired of authoritarian politicians like Murphy, spouting the canard that responsible firearms owners commit gun crimes, and not lowlife criminals who couldn’t give a hoot about your so-called “gun safety laws”. Just as pathetic as leftist wing-nuts calling parents protesting at school board meetings “domestic terrorists.” We’ve already plunged into an Orwellian world where “lies” are “truth” and “truths” are “lies”. G-d help us escape this twisted galus existence.

  2. Do illegal gun toting hoodlums care about your gun laws, governor? Of course not! They hope that you are successful in de-gunning the populace with your unconstitutional restrictions.
