NJ Assembly Gives Final Passage to Three Gun Bills

The Assembly has given final passage to three gun-control bills, sending them to Gov. Chris Christie for his signature.

The bills are the first to clear both chambers of the state Legislature out of several that were introduced after the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., last year that killed 20 children.

The bills passed Monday would create a task force to look into school security, mandate the disposal of unlawful weapons and require more sharing of firearms information among law enforcement agencies.

A fourth bill that would require certain mental health records to be submitted for background checks for those seeking gun permits was also passed after it was amended. It’s being sent back to the state Senate for approval.
