Need Tactical Response

Mar 21, 2018

To the Editor:

I sent the following note to Gov. Murphy in response to the email from him on N.J. Democratic State Committee letterhead.

First, let me say I am shocked “gun reform” is not listed as a topic on the website to contact the governor.

In your budget email, you stated you are going to create a Gun Violence Research Center at one of the N.J. universities. What is your interim solution to protecting children in schools while the research center is designed and built?

May I suggest New Jersey hire unemployed veterans and retired police officers or activate the National Guard. Perhaps you could ask state representatives to address a plan on March 24 at the rallies planned across the state.

We are in the midst of a crisis. The center is a strategic solution; we need to have a tactical response before an assault on our children becomes a statistic.

What would have been the response in Florida if Gov. Scott offered that solution? New Jersey needs action now.
