Gun Control Measure Signed by Christie

Gov. Chris Christie has signed a law requiring law enforcement agencies to tell the state information about guns that are seized or found abandoned.

Christie said in a statement Friday that the law will help keep weapons away from criminals.

His approval comes after the Legislature reworked parts of the bill following Christie’s previous conditional veto of it.

The governor said that provisions calling for public reports to be produced about some of the information would have violated federal law.

Last month, Christie vetoed two bigger pieces of gun legislation. One would have banned .50-caliber rifles and the other would have overhauled the state’s gun permit law.
