NJ Senate panel to consider more gun control bills

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey Senate committee is set to consider several gun control bills, but a limit on the number of bullets allowed in ammunition magazines is not among the measures due to be discussed.

The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee is scheduled to debate the bills Thursday. The 10 measures are part of a 22-bill gun control package passed by the state Assembly in February.

One bill would require the submission of certain health records to the national background check system. Others would enhance penalties for certain firearm offenses and revises the definition of a destructive device.

Parents of four of the 20 children killed in the Newtown, Conn. shooting had also urged the Senate to consider the ammunition magazines measure, but it's not on the committee's schedule.
