Stender on Preventing Persons on FBI Terrorist Watchlist from Purchasing Firearms in New Jersey

Measure Part of Assembly’s Comprehensive Gun Violence Prevention Package

(TRENTON) – Assembly State Government Committee Chair Linda Stender (D-Union) issued a multimedia package Friday on her legislation to prohibit individuals on the FBI Terrorist Watchlist from being able to obtain a firearms permit or purchase firearms in New Jersey.

The measure (A-3687), part of the General Assembly’s sweeping gun violence prevention bill package, would disqualify a person named on the consolidated Terrorist Watchlist maintained by the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center from being issued either a firearm’s identification card or a permit to purchase a handgun. It would be effective immediately upon enactment.

The multimedia package consists of a video of comments from Assemblywoman Stender on her legislation and audio and a transcript of same.
