Phil Murphy gun control push on in New Jersey

Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday pushed for new gun laws to solidify New Jersey’s status as one of the most restrictive in the nation for firearms.

The move came just a day before a gunman killed at least eight at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, critically wounded several others. 

The shooting in Indianapolis comes after a pair of shootings last week – one in South Carolina that left six people dead, including the gunman, former NFL player Phillip Adams – and another at a cabinet-making facility in Texas.

Those incidents followed three high-profile mass shootings last month, beginning with a gunman’s rampage in Georgia that killed eight people at three spas in the Atlanta area on March 16. Less than a week later, a gunman killed 10 people inside a Colorado supermarket. Then, on the last day of March, four people – including a 9-year-old boy – were killed in a targeted shooting inside an office building in Southern California.
