Chris Christie on the spot.

chris-christie-eating

Governor Christie indulging himself and a late night TV host.

Legislators continue to advance a new bill, A2006 in New Jersey.  Ultimately some form of this bill is likely to reach the Governor’s desk.  The new bill would ban magazines holding more than 10 rounds.  It would also ban rifles that have an internal magazine of over 10 rounds, such as several level action .22lr rifles.

Keep in mind NJ has already banned magazines over 15 rounds in capacity.  You are probably asking why?  Why would they try and take away 5 rounds?  It actually makes perfect sense when you realize that the ultimate goal is total disarmament and they won’t stop till they achieve that goal… even if they have to do it 5 rounds at a time.

If it wasn’t for Presidential aspirations, this matter wouldn’t even be up the in air right now.  Given his history, Christie would have definitely signed it without giving it a second thought.  If Christie wants to have a shot in 2016, any campaign adviser worth his salt would be telling him to veto it.

I’ll be brutally honest here, if I were a truly selfish person I’d be hoping Christie signed it so there would be no doubt of where he stands when it comes to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and he’d destroy his chance of winning the GOP primary here and now.    Chances are this ban will wrapped up in some sort of “sportsmans” package throwing a bone to hunters or something similar to give Christie an ‘out’ or try and claim it was a ‘reasonable’ compromise.

I feel for the honest, decent people of New Jersey who live under such a despotic legislature though.

I hope Christie honors his oath of office and veto’s this draconian piece of legislation.  If he doesn’t I predict we will see NJ gun owners in the same position as those in CT and I’d remind them of the Marbury v Madison decision that a law repugnant to the Constitution is null and void.

    Joe your article is incorrect the assembly passed A2006, It has not yet passed Senate or gone to the Governors desk. The bill has stalled before being voted in Senate. There is no bill on the governors desk yet.

    Joe,
    The bill you are showing is Greenwald’s bill from last year. Like JerseyPatriot said A2006 has not been voted on by the Senate. It’s hung u[p because some members think it’s unworkable as written. I think they are afraid the courts will overturn it because there’s no grandfather clause or compensation. Some members (Dems) are hesitant to make some many people instant felons. The GOP is unanimously voting no.

    The senate bill that corresponds to this is 993. It has not even receive a senate committee hearing date yet.

    Ronaldus Maximus signed a ban on machine guns made after the mid 1980s for us peasants. Bush Sr. wrote an executive order to ban the importation of some firearms. Bush Jr. said he would sign an “assault weapons ban.” Romney signed an “assault weapons ban.” McCain can’t figure out if he’s a Democrat or a Republican. Republicans talk like they support gun rights, but there are quite a few examples where they act like Democrats. All Republicans do is slow down gun control. When is the last time we repealed gun control or expanded gun rights at the federal level? Show me a Republican candidate that wants to do that and I will vote for a Republican again. Show me another Romney, Bush, or McCain and I will vote third party again.

      I would trust Ted Cruz or Niki Hailey or Rick Perry. Not that I expect to see any of these nominated.

        Rand Paul. He recently won the CPAC straw poll for the second year in a row. He’s a viable Presidential candidate and is already advancing our cause of firearms freedom as a Senator.

          We can only hope that the GOP does something as intelligent as nominate Paul for the presidency. If not, it’s just business as usual unfortunately.

      Not that it matters at this point, but the claim that Romney signed an assault weapons ban is false. When he entered office, Massachusetts already had a permanent AWB in place. The “Assault Weapons Ban” that Romney signed was supported by the Massachusetts Gun Owners Action League because it preserved certain exceptions to the law, rather than adding more onerous regulations.

      Make no mistake, I hardly see Romney as being Pro-2A. He just isn’t anti, either. His administration helped Massachusetts gun owners much more than it harmed them.

      Like I say, this hardly matters at this point. I just think that we, as gun owners and voters, need to pay closer attention to what’s really going on. Had more gun owners really understood Romney’s record on gun rights, and showed more support for him in the polls, we could be in a much better situation right now.

    It would seem. . . that Marbury v Madison won’t keep the big bad wolf from busting in your front door and breaking into your safe.

    Christie = Romney/McCain/Bush. How many times are Republicans going to
    nominate the same weak candidate and expect voters to fall for yet another RINO? The unofficial official party motto should be “The Grand Old Party: Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 1992.”

    One typo, you spelled lever level. I used to feel bad for people who live in the NE, but after living there for a year and a half I have a hard time feeling bad for them anymore. The people I do feel bad for are the ones who live in places like upstate NY, where they are mostly freedom loving gun lovers. They, like other parts of this country, are being controlled by the masses in the cities. Situations like this is why the 2A exists. Sadly though, no one seems to understand what “shall not infringe” means…..

    I feel no sympathy for the citizens of N.J. The words of another are spot on: We get the government we deserve. And the people of N.J. voted this house of fools into office. IF they feel they are not the best ones to represent them, then they should work to change the direction of their own state legislature.

    I too wish Christie would actually vote his conscience rather than putting on a shame appearance simply to garner support for a presidential bid. If he’s for gun control, then vote for it. If he isn’t veto the bill and give the legislature a good tongue lashing for even sending it this desk.

      As a former NJ resident, and avid gun rights advocate, I voted for Steve Lonegan in the 2009 Republican Primary against Chris Christie. I did nothing to deserve this! Then again, I also left NJ several years ago for a much “friendlier” state!

      • Jwedel1231

        People get the government they deserve, and you deserved better. If everyone who hated it actually did something about it, there would be a better government in place, or very few people left. Sitting and complaining only hurts you in the long run, something you seem to have understood well.

    IMHO Chris Christie is not a true Republican. He is what my dear grandmother would have called a “Yellow Dog Democrat.” The fact that he ran for office as a Republican only indicates that he had little chance of defeating his Democratic opponent in the primaries. I find it disheartening that so many Americans are fooled into thinking that ANY politician – OF ANY PARTY – truly has their best intentions in mind. Politicians are nefarious, narcissists who are only interested in what is best for them, their party, or their cronies. Our beloved country is no longer a Republic, lead by statesmen interested in the greater good. We are just a socialist as the former Soviet Union – our politicians just haven’t gotten around to usurping all our rights and freedoms. But believe me, they will!!!

      We are, currently, as full-on democracy. What the mob wants the mob gets, individual liberties be damned. The mob happens to be led by the media, which is following the ruling class’ lead, so its basically a democratic aristocracy, that happens to look communist.

    I hope he DOES sign it. I’m not being selfish, I just want people to be known for who they really are, not what some “adviser” tells them to act like.
