Governor Murphy Applauds Rutgers University’s Designation as New Jersey’s Center on Gun Violence Research

October 25, 2018

Governor Phil Murphy today celebrated the designation of Rutgers University as New Jersey’s Center on Gun Violence Research (CGVR). The Governor, presenting by video, was joined at the Governor James J. Florio Distinguished Visiting Scholar Lecture by the Honorable Gabrielle Giffords and Captain Mark Kelly, who delivered a presentation at the annual event.

“It is long past time to take a stand against the scourge of gun violence in our communities,” said Governor Phil Murphy. “Beginning today, New Jersey will have its very own research center to fill the knowledge gap left by the federal government’s inaction and the gun industry’s obstruction. I applaud Rutgers University and the Legislature for helping to make New Jersey a national leader in gun violence research.”
