Can't see the forest for the trees....

I posted early earlier about the 15%, no wait, it's 14% now, increase in homicides in New Jersey and it's still news. New Jersey lawmakers Sen. John Girgenti (D-Passaic) and Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen) had a joint press release and said that police layoffs and a stagnant economy could lead to a continued increase in crime. There is a lot of talk about what has caused the increase but not much discussion on a solution.

Assemblyman Johnson is looking for a 'coordinated crackdown'. Where is he going to get the manpower from? He already stated one of the problems is the police layoffs. Not once in the article is there a mention of allowing citizens to protect themselves and their loved ones by allowing them to concealed carry (unless you are counting the comments).

Let's get S69 and A1384 out of committee and on the floor.
