Christie to address gun-control issues Friday

LONG BRANCH – Gov. Chris Christie indicated today that he’s prepared to roll out his recommendations on gun control Friday.

The governor declined to answer a question asked by a reporter Thursday during a Long Branch news conference about how he felt about the way federal lawmakers voted earlier this week on a gun control bill in Washington, D.C.

Christie, before quickly moving on to the next question, said he would state his position Friday.

The governor’s office recently indicated Christie would be ready to roll out his recommendations for guns, and what the governor has also described as “violence control,” in the coming days.

The NJ SAFE Task Force recently unveiled its recommendations for the state.

"I don't think what he's doing tonight, the method by which he's doing it helps to build a trustful relationship."
