School Massacre Families Seek NJ Gun Rules

Relatives of children killed in the Connecticut school massacre are pressing for stronger gun control laws in New Jersey.

They'll join Assembly Speaker Shelia Oliver and Assembly Majority Leader Low Greenwald at a news conference in Trenton Tuesday as a Senate committee considers bills aimed at preventing gun violence.

The Assembly in February passed a 22-bill gun violence package. But the Senate version does not include a 10-bullet limit on ammunition magazines.

New Jersey's current law has a 15-bullet limit.

The state's gun laws are among the strictest in the nation. Purchases are limited, there's a waiting period and assault weapons are banned in the state.

Gov. Chris Christie wants to expand government-funded mental health treatment and restrict children's access to video games.
