If true–if Christie really believes that this will be enough to appease gun rights advocates–he is adding insult to the injury of the extremely draconian anti-gun bills he has signed, like the one that enables the federal government to disarm anyone it chooses, simply by designating political enemies as “suspected terrorists.” One would certainly hope that gun rights advocates are both far too intelligent and far too proud to be bought off that easily.
Yes. Read all of Kurt’s assessment of Christie’s recent pandering in his rejection of the ban on .50 rifles. I am equally unimpressed. Recall that we’ve discussed Chris Christie before. Chris Christie is a gun grabber from way back who made his fame in New Jersey by supporting the assault weapons ban.
Chris Christie is of the get the hell off the beach crowd of obnoxious, loud mouth, blow hard, windbags who like to run the lives of other people. However, that’s not what’s really wrong with him. I may be a loud mouth too, but at least I’m not a totalitarian. But it would be just like the dead elephant party to nominate this man for national office.
