New Jersey Governor Signs 'Name And Shame' Order On Gun Data
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has signed an executive order making data on gun violence more accessible to the public.
The so-called "Name and Shame" order will cite the origin of a gun involved in a crime. According to the state, approximately 80 percent of guns involved in crime come from outside of New Jersey.
Now, New Jersey authorities will identify the origins of those guns involved in crimes. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, who was elected to replace Republican Chris Christie, touts the order as being in the public interest, saying in a statement, "Any death due to gun violence, is one death too many."
