“We’re glad to see Governor Christie agrees with our approach to ensuring victims of domestic violence have their firearms applications processed quickly and without delay.
“The Governor’s Executive Order immediately puts into effect the heart of the legislation (S-3062) we announced earlier this month to prioritize firearms permit applications for residents protected by a current restraining order.
“We will continue to work to put this protection into law so that it can’t be changed by future governors.”
