07 Jan: Pair Of Turner Anti-Gang Violence Measures Receive Final Legislative Approval

TRENTON – Two bills sponsored by Senator Shirley K. Turner which build upon her previous efforts aimed at combating street gangs in New Jersey by cracking down on the number of “straw” purchases of handguns and ammunition were given final legislative approval today.

“Our fight against street games is like a game of cat and mouse – and we must always be looking to be a big lion and not a meek little field mouse,” said Senator Turner, D-Mercer. “Our focus must now turn to how these gangs get their hands on weapons and ammunition and limiting the number of straw purchases made to continue the violence.”
