Anti-gun violence group visits Bloomfield, 3/24/14

Representatives of Do Not Stand Idly By discussed American gun violence on Tuesday at Bloomfield’s Law Enforcement Building.  The Metro IAF campaign shared its efforts with elected officials, police, religious leaders, fellow gun-safety advocates, as well as concerned citizens.

“As a former staffer for Senator Lautenberg, this issue is very near and dear to me,” Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia said. “We’re not trying to take guns away. We don’t want our police facing more powerful weapons than they have.”

Many in attendance expressed the sentiment that now is the time for action.
