The Jersey Journal -- 6/2/2014 -- Three state assemblymen, including one from Jersey City, have introduced legislation that would create a database for firearms used in illegal activities that are recovered by law enforcement agencies.

The bill, sponsored by Assembly Democrats Raj Mukherji of Jersey City, and Gary S.
