Gov. Murphy Issues Executive Order 83

Since municipalities use State contracts to purchase law enforcement equipment we would like to bring to your attention the recently signed Executive Order 83. On September 10, Governor Murphy directed the Division of Purchase and Property (DPP), within 30 days, to issue a request to all retail dealers or manufacturers of firearms that currently sell ammunition and/or firearms to the State to ascertain whether vendor practices, where applicable, adhere to the applicable public safety principles related to firearms noted in the Executive Order. 

DPP must then determine, based on the information provided, whether and how to ensure that any prospective bid solicitation for ammunition and firearms include a requirement that each vendor, prior to award, certify adherence to public safety principles relating to firearms as defined in the Executive Order. The Executive Order also requires the Treasurer and Commissioner of Banking of Insurance to take action to “to promote responsible gun safety practices for gun vendors and financial institutions providing services to the state, and take action against insurance policies that encourage firearm use.”
