Jersey City to Gun Companies: Explain How You Sell Guns Or No More City Contracts

Jersey City to Gun Companies: Explain How You Sell Guns Or No More City Contracts

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop (D) is asking gun companies to provide police with information “about their business practices” in order to stay in play for future city firearm contracts.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the information requested includes how gun companies “dispose of old weapons and comply with background check laws, and whether they make semiautomatic rifles… for sale to civilians.” Guns.com reports that Jersey City also wants to know what gun companies do with police trade-ins – whether those trade-ins are resold to the public.

In December 2013 Fulop told Al Jareeza he also wants to know if gun companies are “using their brand” in “aggressive video games.”

Fulop’s ultimate goal is “to try to change the firearms industry through the power of the city purse.”
