Gun safety activist Fred Guttenberg and Assemblyman Ryan Peters (R-Hainesport) joined host David Wildstein on the New Jersey Globe Power Hour on Talk Radio 77 WABC on Saturday, August 21.

Guttenberg emerged as a national voice for gun control after his 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, was shot and killed in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.  His daughter was one of 17 people murdered that day.  The shooter used an AR-15 rifle.

He is the founder of two non-profit organizations that advocate for laws to reduce gun violence: Orange Ribbons for Jaime and Orange Ribbons for Gun Safety.

Peters is a two-term assemblyman from Burlington County.  He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis and completed three combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Navy SEAL.  He currently serves as a SEAL commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve and practices law in South Jersey.

He announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election to the legislature in 2021 in order to spend more time with his family.

Wildstein is the host of the editor of the New Jersey Globe.

The New Jersey Globe Power Hour is available on the New Jersey Globe and WABC radio websites, and on Apple PodcastsGoogle Podcasts and Spotify.
