10 NJ Gun-Control Bills Get Senate Vote

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -

The New Jersey Senate has passed 10 gun-control bills, three of which received a final legislative vote and now head to Gov. Chris Christie’s desk.

The bills before the Senate Thursday that go to Christie for his passage or veto include a bill that forces state-run pension funds to divest from companies making military-style guns for consumers. Another would require people applying for gun permits to submit some mental health records to a national background check system.

A third would disqualify anyone named on a terrorist watch list from obtaining a gun permit.
