Today we brought charges against current and former public and elected Wildwood officials for alleged breaches of public trust. We will root out corruption and restore faith in our institutions. https://bit.ly/39TJBv4

Today I issued a Directive to law enforcement reiterating that even with SCOTUS' reckless Bruen decision, individuals in New Jersey cannot carry firearms without a permit, and all other aspects of the permitting process must continue to be enforced. https://bit.ly/3xQnddT

The @SCOTUS decision on Bruen will not stop us from using every available tool to defend New Jersey’s tough gun safety laws. I stand ready with @GovMurphy and @NJSP to do all that we can to protect our communities.

Talked with @gabegutierrez and @NBCNews about today's dangerous SCOTUS decision on concealed carry in Bruen. But make no mistake, in New Jersey we will use all lawful tools at our disposal to protect our residents from the deadly threat of gun violence. https://nbcnews.to/3u02C5L

This week marks 1 year since @GovMurphy signed the Fair Chance in Housing Act, the first state law protecting people with criminal records from housing discrimination. Thank you @FairShareNJ for hosting me at yesterday’s anniversary celebration.

Thank you @NPR and @MorningEdition for talking with me about the imminent SCOTUS opinion on concealed carry in NYSRPA v. Bruen. A decision limiting states' power to protect residents from gun violence in public would be bad law and bad for public safety. https://n.pr/3A3nTQ5

Businesses have a duty to protect their customers using strong data security measures. Carnival Cruise Lines failed to do so, and compromised the personal info of 180,000 Carnival employees and customers.

I was proud to join @GovMurphy in holding a summit today on how our State can combat the alarming rise in hate and bias in our communities.
