Gov. Christie talks gun control in the state

Posted: Updated:

Governor Chris Christie says New Jersey is taking a more deliberate approach to gun control, mental health, and school security by forming a task force to study the issues that lead to violence.

Christie is requiring the task force to make recommendations within 60 days.  The Governor says that it will take more than just gun control laws to treat the problem.

"This is about the bigger picture, this is about violence control, not just about gun control," said Governor Christie.

New Jersey has had an assault weapons ban in place for 21 years, and Christie says he supports the state gun laws already on the books.
