TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — An Assembly panel is set to consider 25 bills aimed at reforming New Jersey’s gun laws.
The proposals include reforming weapon sales and allowing for only face-to-face transactions of ammunition. Another measure would require buyers to submit certain mental health records to the national criminal background check program.
The Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday morning to consider the measures.
Assembly Democrats unveiled the bills Friday as part of a gun violence prevention package. They say the measures are meant to enhance gun safety.
If approved by the committee, the measures are slated to go before the full Assembly on Feb. 21.
New Jersey’s gun laws are already among the nation’s toughest.
