Christie Will Hold Conference Following Task Force Report on Violence

New Jersey Governor Christie is expected to have more to say about a report that calls for tighter controls on guns and video games.

Christie has scheduled a news conference in Trenton today.

The NJ SAFE task force that Christie created after the Connecticut school shootings released its report last week.  Christie has said he would be willing to consider more gun laws but only if they addressed mental health issues and violence in the media.

The group recommended the periodic renewal of gun licenses and called for a law banning people from buying guns for others.

The group also recommended helping those with mental illness.  Gun control measures have remained stalled in the Legislature.

New Jersey has among the strictest gun laws in the nation.
