NJ assembly to vote on gun control

TRENTON, Pa. - New Jersey lawmakers have approved a slew of bills meant to reduce gun violence.

The state Assembly approved 22 bills Thursday afternoon.

The legislation covers many areas including the improvement of mental health services, tightening requirements for gun permits and limiting ammunition sales.

Lawmakers created the bills in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting.

The bills now head to the state Senate where similar bills were introduced.

Governor Chris Christie has not released a position on the bills.
