“This event was a tremendous success and I thank Craig Guy, Assemblyman Mukherji, Commissioner Romano, and everyone else who joined us,” Hoboken Council President Emily Jabbour, who is also the founder of the Hudson branch of Moms Demand Action, said in a statement.

“We organized this walk to show that mothers, parents, and all residents of Hudson County are fed up with the status quo and are demanding change. Support from Democratic leaders like Craig Guy is critical to our goal of ending gun violence.”

The walk began at the Water’s Soul statue on the Jersey City waterfront and continued to Sinatra Park in Hoboken.

Others in attendance included Jersey City Ward E Councilman James Solomon, Hoboken Councilman-at-Large Joe Quintero, Hoboken Democratic Committee Chair Rachel Hodes, Hudson County commissioner candidate Ron Bautista, and Hudson County executive candidate Craig Guy.

“Gun violence is an epidemic in our country and I was proud to join community leaders and advocates [Saturday] morning to say this — enough is enough and it’s time for Republicans in Congress to stop blocking responsible gun safety legislation like the assault weapons ban,” added Guy.

“With deadly mass shootings continuing to happen all over the country and with persistent gun violence even here in some places in Hudson County, we all need to use our voices and our platforms to call for an end to the violence and for Congress to finally act.”

  1. When you’re in a life and death situation, you are guaranteed one thing: train and be ready to defend your life and liberty or become a statistic. Decide.

  2. Guns don’t kill people, stupid Emily Jabbour does! Look at her chipmunk face – queen of the Hoboken Commies – demanding action against our constitution, but too stupid afraid to spent a single night in Newark.

    • It’s people like this that unleashed mental illness on the country and then refuse to lock up the criminally mentally ill. Just what we saw in NYC with the guy running amok on the subway with an open warrant.

      They create the problem and then look to deny your basic civil rights. This while they run the country into the ground, not by incompetence but by intent. Hey, if a criminal comes to kill you just tell them to stop and say you have to call Little Emily to the scene first.

    • You’ll never know what it feels like to be a mother or a father or even out on a date that could lead to becoming a mother or father. Stay in your lane, incel
