Skip to comments.Corzine to Millions of Honest Gun Owners: You're Potential Criminals and a Threat to Public Safety
Posted on 07/22/2009 10:37:31 AM PDT by FlorianG
Memo to the millions of American citizens who have managed to qualify for government permits to carry firearms: you are "potential criminals," and you are "a threat to our citizens' safety and well-being," even though you have passed criminal background checks and satisfied state firearms proficiency standards. That according to New Jersey governor Jon Corzine (D), who apparently thinks that the path to re-election later this year is paved by trampling the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

And don’t you dare question Corzine’s competence at Goldman. Or his buddies at Goldman who are picking your pockets clean.
He is what the second amendment is there for.
“You are difficult to control and pose a threat to unConstitutional liberal political power”
Memo to Thorazine: KMA ya senile old coot.
too bad we lost all our guns in a boating accident...
Ha ha...me too!
More like potential revolutionaries for freedom.
A simple single sentence to these elitist rumpswabs: “The Second Amendment exists to protect people like me from people like you.”
I’m a potential criminal, too. I’ve got fists, haven’t I?
Isn’t everyone, save perhaps the comatose?
It’s amazing how frightened these dems are of the Constitution of the United States and of conservatives in general. Notice how they use words like “security”, “stability”, “change”.......
Another reason to hate New Jersey!
Just when I thought I had listed them all!
Unfortunately, a bill pending in the State Senate and up for committee vote 12/8 (S1774) is a bad dose of old medicine. It's a proposal to ration the Constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to own handguns beyond the existing regulatory thicket, which already slows exercise of those rights to a trickle. It ignores violent behavior and known sources of illegal trafficking, instead restricting only persons investigated and pre-certified as acceptable to own firearms. Even mainstream media recognize the ineffectiveness of this approach.
This is from another blog entry on the same page as the linked article.
Seatbelt laws perhaps? Remember the idiot was bed-ridden for months while riding in some SUV at over 80mph?
He’s communist mafia...pure and simple
They say they're looking for a few good men, not always what they find.
I would rather be a felon with a gun than a slave without one.
Me to the dishonable Corzine: You sir are an ass.
They will always attempt to legislate our constiutional rights away from us rather then just outright attempt to take them. The are very aware of the hornets nest they are poking at. I am convinced our ownership of firearms has prevented them from taking many other rights from us.
And more people are understanding the importance of the 2nd amendment every day and exactly how precious it is.
People who hate the Second Amendment just want to do things to you that they couldn’t if you were armed...
The police, private investigators, government employees, and licensed bodyguards?
Nothing succeeds like success.
The liberal eastern Dems always follow the SAME script:
Pull out the Guns and NRA, Abortion, Gay Rights, etc, and wiggle them in front of the facces of the liberal dopes who keep electing them to office , and Democrat voters start to tremble and can’t wait to pull that lever agains the eveil guns, abortion blockers, etc.
But THIS time, I don’t think it is going to work. Corzine has been too much of a horse’s ass on economics.
All the services have the occassional “chickensh*+” member, so that would explain Corzine ~ random flux.
Corzine, Murtha, Lee Harvey Oswald, Charles Whitman (The UT sniper).
It seems to have worked for any number of NJ pols and COPs. Not sure why that would change now. The voters of NJ seem to agree too.
The “Torch” Torricelli should be in prison!
NJ and 2A ping
Corzine is an A$$-HAT. Considering the amount of corruption undertaken by the politicians of his state, the most recent being the huge bust for money laundering & organ selling, it would appear that you don’t need a gun to be a criminal or a threat to the public well being, ya just need to be a politician! He & his ilk are EXACTLY why we have a 2nd ammendment. The time to employ it to it’s intended purpose draws ever closer.
Someone needs to make available the stats for CCW holders who commit crimes.
They would speak volumes, but for somereason, the states do not find it in their interest to release this information.
Cause you know that Criminals always get a background check before they Carry.
The governor is the criminal and a charter menber in the criminal enterprise that is the Democrat party. He is a governor and Don
This is what happens when people that claim to defend the 2nd amend attempt to compromise with the gun haters.
CCW laws infringe on the right to bear arms as much as any other gun control law.
We need laws that punish people for the criminal use of a gun. Not gun control laws that only law abiding citizens obey.
When was the last time a criminal obeyed a gun control law?
