On July 17, Governor Murphy signed four bills strengthening gun safety laws in New Jersey. The most notable, a bill requiring gun stores to offer smart guns. This offers homeowners an option to better secure their guns from theft and children. Congratulations to Governor Murphy and the State of New Jersey.
