nj.com wants its readers to know Where every candidate for N.J. governor stands on guns. While most of the Republican candidates are making the right noises on gun rights and we know how the Dems stand — “I don’t see any need for me or my friends to be carrying concealed handguns” — here’s a RINO in the running.
A spokesman for the former Monmouth County wouldn’t say if there were any gun laws which [Kim] Guadagno would support repealing, but did say she doesn’t believe the state needs any new ones, and certainly wants to reexamine existing gun transport laws.
“I believe because New Jersey has among the strictest gun laws in the country, we should enforce the ones we have on the books,” said Guadagno in an email to NJ Advance Media.
However, the rash of arrests of legal gun owners who obliviously got caught up in New Jersey’s gun transport laws does bear reexamination, she said.
Strictest and strictly unconstitutional. Hey! Here’s something Ms Guadagno might want to examine:
“I, ______ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully, impartially and justly perform all the duties of the office of _____ to the best of my ability.”
The New Jersey’s governor’s Oath of Office somehow fails to mention upholding the U.S. Constitution, which protects the right to keep and bear arms from government infringement. [Note: the New Jersey Constitution contains no similar prohibition.]
Which means the same old anti-gun rights Dem or RINO — which most likely includes the other Republicans paying lip service to the Second Amendment — will have no obligation to restore Garden State gun rights.
Same as it ever was.
