NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt issued a response to Governor Phil Murphy’s attack on the Second Amendment. His press release follows:
Trenton, NJ - Today, Governor Murphy signed an Executive Order attacking the Second Amendment. NJGOP Chairman released the following statement in response:
“Like most sensible New Jerseyans, the NJGOP also supports common sense gun laws, but once again Governor Murphy shows his inability to take aim at gun crime and instead continues his practice of targeting legal gun owners.
"Today’s Executive Order is big on bravado and short on substance. It creates the same false sense of security that the rest of his political pandering creates.
“On behalf of the NJGOP, I call on Governor Murphy to do something meaningful to combat gun crime and stop criminalizing gun owners, manufacturers and retailers.”
