“The New Jersey state Assembly on Thursday sent Governor Chris Christie a gun control bill that would limit the capacity of gun ammunition magazines,” Reuters reports, “but it was unclear whether the Republican governor would sign the measure into law.” TTAG polled our readers on Gov. Christie’s probable move in a previous post. Our Armed Intelligentisa were of two minds. If Christie wants the Republican nomination for President, he won’t sign the bill (limiting NJ-legal ammo mags to ten rounds, down from 15). Then again . . .
is a mag cap law a career killer? Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney wasn’t exactly the world’s most pro-gun pol before he got the party’s nod. So Christie might sign, figuring Republicans will hold their noses – again, still – when the time comes to vote. The Governor’s given no indication of his position on the bill. We shall see.
