“Gov. Chris Christie said he would consider revisiting New Jersey’s strict gun laws if he had a Republican-led legislature,” wsj.com reports. “In response to a question about his support for the Second Amendment [at a town hall meeting], the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate said that New Jersey’s Democrat-led Legislature has sent him only bills that further restrict these rights, many of which he has vetoed.” The WSJ notes that Christie previously vowed to “strictly enforce” all of the Garden State’s gun laws, regardless of their Constitutionality. Here’s his new promise on gun rights . . .
“Send me a Republican legislature. And with a Republican legislature you’ll have a governor who will respect, appropriately, the rights of law-abiding citizens to be able to protect ourselves.”
Otherwise? Fuhgeddaboutit. Note: that this the same Chris Christie who proposed a new gun control law in January which would require FFL dealers and firearms manufacturers (!) to make gun records available for State Police inspection.
According to nj,com, that law would also put rules in place requiring ‘dealers to immediately notify state and local police if their security systems fail.” And if, by chance, the security system cannot be repaired within 24 hours, the dealer could be allowed to ‘move the guns to another licensed location with approval of the State Police.'”
It didn’t happen, but still. Anyway, Chris Christie the (presumed) presidential candidate now says “No rights are given to you by government. All are rights are given to you by God.” And no tenure in the White House is given by God either, Just sayin’.
