If you tell enough lies often enough about guns and your goals or civilian disarmament, some people begin to believe them. Apparently.
Gov. Phil Murphy insisted the state is not against guns. But he said the only choice for New Jersey and other states is to work on preventing gun violence on their own since Congress has failed to pass meaningful gun laws.
Murphy said the U.S. is still reeling from the effects of the Dickey Amendment, legislation that ultimately stopped the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from studying gun violence.
“To more effectively combat the scourge of gun violence, we must undertake the important multidisciplinary research that Congress had blocked for more than two decades,” he said.
However, the process will take time, even after the basic infrastructure is set up.
