Chris Christie Unveils Sweeping Gun Control Plans
New Jersey 101.5 ^ | April 19, 2013 | Kevin McArdle

Posted on 04/19/2013 3:54:37 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Gov. Chris Christie unveiled gun control and violence prevention measures that are as comprehensive as they are ambitious.

Christie acknowledges there is no way to prevent all violence in our society, but he says it is the job of government to question, to scrutinize and to demand more in an attempt to address the problem.

The plan calls for expanding New Jersey’s already strict gun control laws, expanding government-funded mental health treatment, making it more difficult for kids buy or rent violent video games, requiring that would-be gun owners show government-issued IDs and bolstering penalties for gun-related crimes.

“It’s hard for me to sit here today and say, ‘If all these things got imposed we’d see an ‘X’ percentage drop in gin violence in this state.’ I don’t know,” said Christie. “Bad people are going to do bad things and so, would greater penalties deter people? You hope they do.”(continued)

Stop with the gun control, Christie. WE the PEOPLE do not want it, not that you care.

I don’t know about gin violence but I’m sure you’re capable of wrecking a completely good buffet, Christie. And no much good for anything else except sucking up to Obama.

Good grief, from what a NJ friend told me, the only place you can handle a gun is on a firing range (and why do they even have them)?

What more is this jellyroll going to do? Edit out guns on video and in film and replace them with bananas?

Actually he's going to end up in "no man's land" if he switches to democrat. They make fat jokes about him all the time. Almost as much as republicans do.

I don't think America will elect a morbidly obese guy, regardless of party.

Why would he want to lose as a Republican when he can win as a Democrat? I'm thinking either Rubio-Christie or Christie-Rubio.

Christie said: “requiring that would-be gun owners show government-issued IDs “

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS HE GOING WITH THE “GOVERNMENT-ISSUED ID’S”????????????????

This bad impression of a literate Tony Soprano needs to be voted out of office!!

It is hard for me to say that Christie has read the newspapers for the last few days.

Simply unbelievable!
