“Three bills aimed at controlling gun violence gained final legislative approval in the state Assembly today, making them the first of what is expected to be a big batch of gun control legislation to land on Gov. Chris Christie’s desk.” Controlling gun violence. You gotta love nj.com. Or not. If you live in the Garden State and love your natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, you’re not going to be well pleased with this tyrannical trifecta. Read ’em and weep . . .
“The bills would give owners of illegal guns 180 days to dispose of them (A3796); create a task force to study ways to improve schools security (A3583); and establish uniform standards [for law enforcement officials] to report lost, stolen and discarded guns (A3797).
“Illegal guns” meaning anything black and scary (a.k.a., “assault weapons.”). Theschool security task force is examining “using biometric, retina, or other advanced recognition systems for authorized entrance into school buildings.” The “uniform standards” include test firing all recovered guns—a huge waste of taxpayer funds.
Anyway, Republican Governor Christie has 45 days to piss or get off the pot. With more civilian disarmament legislation heading down the [New Jersey turn]pike, the aspiring POTUS may sign these three “moderate” gun ban bills, hoping that the big kahuna (a bill dropping magazine capacity from 15 to ten) doesn’t make it to his office.
If it does, and he’s signed these measures, Christie can say to the legislature, what do you want, blood? There’s a pound of flesh joke in there somewhere . . .
Oh and a big shout-out to nj.com again for continuing the mainstream media tradition of not linking to the actual bills in their coverage. Anything Big Press can do to remain the gatekeepers of public information they do.
