A4371: Establishes Firearm Violence Research Center at Rutgers, The State University http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2016/Bills/A4500/4371_I1.HTM Identical Bill Number: S2830 Assembly: Downey, Joann (D) as Primary Sponsor Houghtaling, Eric (D) as Primary Sponsor Vainieri Huttle, Valerie (D) as Primary Sponsor Senate: Madden, Fred H., Jr. (D) as Primary Sponsor How they will pay for it: "Under the bill, the Firearm Violence Research Center will be funded through an annual appropriation by the Legislature, and by any grants, gifts, donations, or other additional funds received by the center from public or private sources for research related to firearm violence." (So they'll be taking tax money and Everytown for Gun Safety money, no possible conflicts of interest there…) Scott Bach's take on it: "It's an anti-gun think-tank which would squander millions in taxpayer dollars to legitimize gun grabs and limit the rights of honest citizens to defend themselves,” he said. “In the post-Orlando era of terror attacks on U.S. soil, our lawmakers should be looking for ways to empower citizens, not turn them into victims."
