Murphy called the new laws "gun-safety package 2.0." and the bills will include:
- Measures to criminalize all aspects of gun trafficking
- Requirement that every gun retailer in the state to carry at least one smart gun
- Requirement that ammunition retailers report sales to the state police
- Measures to criminalize the purchase of ammunition by people convicted of serious crimes.
