Murphy says ‘we need action’ after fatal school shooting

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says he was “staggered” by the fatal shooting at a Florida high school and that “we need action.”

Murphy addressed the shooting Thursday at an unrelated event in Trenton.

The shooting Wednesday at a Parkland, Florida, high school left 17 people dead. Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder

Murphy, a Democrat, says New Jersey will seek to join with “like-minded” states to come up with regional solutions. Murphy held a round-table talk earlier this week on gun legislation and has repeatedly called for enacting what he calls common sense gun safety measures.

Last month, Murphy announced that he was rescinding a Christ Christie-era rule that made it easier for residents to acquire carry permits for handguns.
