Christie Announces Sweeping Gun Control Plans
Townhall.com ^ | 4/22/2013 | Leah Barkoukis

Posted on 04/22/2013 6:15:42 AM PDT by rktman

New Jersey has the second toughest gun laws in the nation—it’s one of seven states with an “assault-weapons ban,” one of three with a one-gun-a-month law and gun shows are not permitted. But on Friday when the nation was fixated on the events in Boston, Gov. Chris Christie was pushing for even more gun control.

Well, that should put THE nail in that oversize coffin. I guess his little communing event with king hussein after hurricane Sandy opened his eyes and "allowed" him to fall in line like a good little sheep. Maybe he and springsteen had a beer summit to seal the deal on brucies "farm".

I was thinking the exact same thing. No need to worry about this jerk in the next Presidential race..uh..unless he decides to run as a Democrat.

Isn't Christie Ann Coulter’s latest northeast liberal favorite for President?

I hope he's simultaneously preparing for the inevitable crime increases that always follows ‘gun control’.

In November, voters sent the GOP a message. That message was “We are willing to moderate”. The GOP got the message.

Hope people enjoy the result.

Finally the fat man shows his true colors.

His red drawers should be flown from the flag pole over the New Jersey State House. Just another way to block the sunlight from this otherwise gloomy state. It should be renamed the Garbage State replacing the Garden State as its motto.

Farewell, Christie.

I wonder if the maid with the flaxen hair feels stupid?

Why is anyone surprised? It is already illegal to own a SLINGSHOT in New Jersey and you need to get a permit to buy a BB gun.

Gun banners want more crime it gives them more excuses for more anti gun laws.

Gun control is not about crime control it is about people control

Ann Coulter already has crossed Cristie off her dance card....he’s no longer Ann’s BFF.

I’ve heard Ann on talk radio a number of times during the past few months, and she said her interest in Christie ended when Christie burst into tears upon meeting Bruce Springsteen.

As I watched some of the coverage of the events down the road in Watertown this past week, I was amazed at how quickly they were able to deploy armored assault vehicles and get every officer (even the hugely fat ones) outfitted in armor and tactical gear and M-16s with huge capacity magazines. Some looked larger than 30 round.

The militarization of local PDs should be scaring the crap out of anyone with the ability to add 2 and 2 to get 4.

I disagree. Gunbanners do not give a damn about crime one way of another.In addition, they do not wish to ban guns in total. They just do not want you to have guns. They do want the power it gives them to have you, unarmed and at the mercy of their armed goons. They themselves, will be personally armed in addition to having leigons of armed guards at their beck and call to protect them from the serfs and other asundry and evil deeds they order them to do.

Don’f fall for the,”We want to get rid of guns in the hands of the peasants to reduce crime”, trap. It is only about control and being able to extermineate their enemies without fear of repucussion, not crime reduction.

Does the rotund gov have a permit to go to Krispy Kreme? Needs to be revoked. As for chi-town, just another normal weekend in a gun free zone. Maybe they should put some billboards up at the city line stating “No Guns Beyond This Point”. That should take care of it.

From the article: “The proposal calls for... mandating would-be gun owners show government-issued IDs.

Change “would-be gun owners” to “would-be voters” and the left would be calling Christie a racist for tryig to disenfrachise minorities and poor people.

Don't worry, the GOP-elite will push him or Jeb Bush into the candidate position, like they did Romney...
Then when he fails they can say "OMG, conservatism's dead!" and abandon more party-planks.

Yes they were heavily armed... but they couldn’t kill two terrorists with hundreds upon hundreds of rounds fired. One was run over by the other and now the press says the little boy terrorist shot himself in the neck.

Gun control is not about crime control it is about people control

Gun control is about security. The fewer guns that citizens have, the more secure the tyrants are!
