We must find common ground on gun violence

www.phillyburbs.com

One of the hallmarks of a free and strong society is its ability to protect its citizens from dangers both foreign and domestic. New Jersey continues to face such a challenge with respect to how we deal with gun violence in our communities. We must address the flow of illegal weapons into the hands of violent predators. Far too many innocent men, women and children have been hurt or killed due to illegal gun activity. Nationally, according to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the vast majority of the approximately 12,000 annual gun murders and 66,000 nonfatal shootings are committed by people who have no legal right to a gun. By not addressing this problem now, more unlawful weapons will enter our streets and our schools. We must find common ground if we are to tackle this issue effectively, because the stakes are too high if we do not.
