Assembly Members Houghtaling and Downey released the following statement in response to attempts by Governor Christie to once again loosen gun carry permits in New Jersey:

"It is unnecessary and unsafe for the Governor to continue insisting on loosening gun regulations in our state," said Downey (D-Monmouth), "Last year we introduced and passed legislation to block this change, we intend to continue pushing back against Christie with all we have."

"What the Governor is trying to do is completely out of line with legislative intent and goes against laws already on the books," said Houghtaling (D-Monmouth), "Just as we've done before, Assemblywoman Downey and I will fight these changes in favor of common sense gun control."
