Despite the fact that gun control is way down the list of voters’ priorities, the President’s CNN town hall confab has placed civilian disarmament at the top of the assault media’s pile. They will eventually lose interest, of course, until the eventual Republican nominee picks up the ballistic ball and runs with it to increase Republican turnout in the general election. Meanwhile, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie . . .
is rising in the New Hampshire presidential primary polls on the back of his get-tough-on-terrorism shtick. But man is the Obama-hugger weak on gun rights. Well he was. His position has changed. He’s now in favor of “shall issue” and “working towards making it easier for folks to able to get a permit in New Jersey.”
Uh, no. Christie could issue an executive order – yes, one of those – to change NJ to “shall issue” for concealed carry. As for easing the Garden State’s unconstitutional restrictions on concealed carry, Christie’s referring to the report by the Firearm Purchase and Permitting Study Commission, the three-member body created by Christie the night before he announced his presidential bid. Which did nothing to ameliorate NJ’s disarmament regime.
Forgive and forget? I don’t think so. And probably neither do you. But again, your average voter doesn’t care so much about gun control. Still, we’ve seen Obama generate crocodile tears for victims of “gun violence” in pursuit of his anti-gun agenda Is this RINO’s regrets on gun rights going to sway anyone to vote for Chris Christie?
