The 2014 Seton Hall Legislative Journal Symposium will explore gun control bills that are currently progressing through and pending before both the New Jersey and New York Legislatures. The New Jersey panel will focus on such issues as the tightening of restrictions on firearms and the stiffening of gun-trafficking penalties which were incorporated into bills recently signed by Governor Christie along with bills that address the ban of .50 caliber weapons, revisions to the state’s firearm identification card, and firearms training requirement. As an extension to these issues, the Symposium will also review the recent gun control legislation passed in New York --- specifically, the legislation in New York City stemming from Mayor Bloomberg’s push for tougher gun control laws across the country and New York’s “SAFE Act,” which Governor Cuomo pushed through last January.

This symposium will address these questions through the following panels:
