“It is an honor to begin my new role as Acting Attorney General today,” Matthew Platkin wrote. “I am humbled beyond measure for the opportunity from Gov. Murphy to serve my home state and its great residents.”

“I follow in the footsteps of extraordinary people who have held this office, and I hope to continue their proud legacy of service to the people of New Jersey. And as New Jersey’s chief law enforcement officer, my highest priority will always be keeping our residents safe.

“ That means taking on the scourge of gun violence that harms so many of our residents, building ties between the police and the communities they serve, and having the backs of the most vulnerable among us where they live, work, and play. Now, let’s get to work.”

  1. Another idiot liberal, the problem isn’t guns, it is criminal violence that is the problem, but the democrats coddle criminals and want to take guns from law abiding citizens so they have no protection against the criminals the democrats coddle.
