In the wake of the Newtown massacre of 20 little children and 6 adults, we can not sit back and allow illogical politics to rule over common sense legislation for public safety.
We need universal background checks , a federal ban on military style assault weapons and high capacity magazine clips .No matter how strong our NJ gun control laws are, if someone can go to another state and buy these weapons with no questions asked , and no background checks , then this jeopardizes the safety of New Jersey where these weapons are banned.
This MUST be done on a federal level and our NJ Congressmen need to put away their partisan politics and commit to serving our families and children.Our voices need to be heard over the nonsense of the NRA. This is not a partisan issue --It is a human issue and a public safety issue. Our NJ Congressmen are ultimately responsible for our public safety and they must be held accountable .

New Jersey Residents For Action is planning a public
forum and discussion on the effects of gun violence , updates
on current and pending NJ legislation as well as federal legislation and
how residents can use their voice for real action .
It will be held on May 1 at Temple Emanuel
in Westfield beginning at 7:00 Pm . We will be updating the public as to
details as we move closer to the date .
We are having a meeting of existing and new members tonight at 7:30 in Westfield at the First Congregational Church on Elmer St( next to the Chase Bank)
We were very disappointed in our meeting with Leonard Lance that he has taken NO PUBLIC POSITION on any of the proposals set forth by the president for initiatives to be enacted on a federal level--not even background checks. Please remember in order to keep NJ safe, PA has to also have a ban assault rifles and magazine clips , or else anyone can buy the deadliest of weapons and bring them to our state to murder our children. I told this to Mr. Lance in our meeting .,. He said " he always votes his conscience"
Let's see what his" conscience" is telling him now.
He has refused to meet with the 7th district constituents at Westfield HS on this burgeoning issue facing our country. We are working on getting other speakers to the HS on this issue facing our community for a public forum.
I will be will be meeting on Feb 4 with Leonard Lance in his Westfield office to finalize plans for our town hall meeting with him to be held in Westfield. . I will be informing you all of the date, time and place very soon .
