2nd Amendment supporters rally against gun bills in NJ
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Second Amendment advocates rallied at New Jersey’s state capital in opposition to a half-dozen gun control bills expected to get a vote in the Assembly.
Many of the dozens of people wore National Rifle Association hats and carried signs that read “NRA Stand and Fight” at Monday’s rally outside the War Memorial in Trenton, steps from the statehouse.
The Democrat-led Assembly is scheduled to vote on six bills that gained traction after the Florida high school shooting that left 17 people dead.
Among the measures being considered is a bill that requires firearms to be seized upon a court order when a health care official deems someone poses a serious threat.
If approved the measures go to the Democrat-led Senate. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy says he supports of the effort.
