CONGRESSMAN VAN DREW REACTS TO GOVERNOR MURPHY’S 8-STEP PLAN TO DIMINISH SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

December 16, 2021 — Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement after Governor Murphy released his 8-step plan that diminishes the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. 

“Governor Murphy’s anti-gun wish-list will only result in punishing legal gun owners,” said Congressman Van Drew. “The package of bills that Governor Murphy has proposed blatantly infringes on the constituional right of the American people to legally own a gun. This is not common-sense gun legislation, this is legislation that will make it tougher for law-abiding New Jerseyans to purchase a gun and will not stop criminals from committing gun violence.”

Over the next six weeks, Governor Murphy wants the state legislature to: 

“I urge the New Jersey state legislature to reject these proposals and come up with actual common-sense gun legislation that does not infringe on the rights guaranteed by the Constitution.”
