Kean: “Governor’s Task Force is the Deliberative Approach to Gun Violence”

 

 
 Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R- Union) issued the following statement on Governor Christie’s recently announced task force on gun violence:

In the wake of the Newtown, CT tragedy, that state’s legislature formed a bipartisan task force to study the issue of gun violence, and how to end it, before there was a rush to pass legislation.

I am pleased that the Governor has also chosen the deliberative, informed approach being used by the state legislators most directly affected by the massacre at Sandy Hook. Before we act, we need information so that New Jersey policymakers and lawmakers can make similarly educated decisions.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
