8:37 S.B. 1076 breakdown and legislative items
If you can make it to the Legislative Office Building, do it. If not head to Murphy's meeting. It's more important to show force at the hearing.
Thursday (3/14) is a normal committee hearing. The process will not be like the Gun Safety hearing in January.
You'll have 3 minutes to talk.
11 bills are being discussed.
1076 is the big one
If you need facts and statistics gunfacts.info or FBI.gov
Look at the other bills too, not just 1076.
If your legislator is not on the Public Safety Committee, walk into their office and ask to speak with them.
