North Jersey Ceasefire Anti-Gun Violence
The North Jersey chapter of Ceasefire New Jersey (CFNJ), now an issue group within BlueWaveNJ, supports commonsense legislation and initiatives at the state and national level to prevent gun violence and support gun responsibility. Over the past 25 years, CFNJ has taken a leadership role in passing and then preventing the repeal of New Jersey’s Assault Weapons Ban (still the strongest such law in the nation), and spearheading a broad coalition of over 50 groups in passing the first-in-the-nation Childproof Handgun Bill (mandating that all handguns sold in NJ be equipped with built-in technology that prevents them from being fired by anyone except the lawful owner).
BWNJ’s North Jersey Ceasefire supports the national and state efforts of the following organizations: The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Both organizations are committed to closing the gun show loophole and interstate trafficking of illegal guns. Please visit their websites to learn more.
