New Jersey: State Senate facing petitions over gun control law

New Jersey state Senate President Stephen Sweeney is facing recall threats over gun control issues. This is the second recall petition filed against Sweeney this month. Petitioners claim that Sweeney promised to kill a magazine limit bill and then changed his mind after the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre.

Sweeney does not seem scared by the threat and for good reason -- NJ has a very tough recall law, and has not had a state-level recall get on the ballot. Petitioners would need 34,808 signatures in 160 days (25% of registered voters).
