While the vile Gov Christie plays useful idiot for this enemy of this country !
Christie is scum !
Whoa there, cowboy!
Don't forget Christie endorsed Romney (to my consternation) and has been tirelessly campaigning for him eversince. We can safely suspect he has something in mind Obama won't like.
To quote Sherlock: "The game is afoot!"
I agree, and I have held that same opinion for a couple of years.
Here's my reason why. According to what I have read and have been told by people who claim to know, a young man who had lived in CO for a few years decided to move back to NJ and live near his widowed mother. He owned two or three handguns that he packed in a suitcase and placed in the trunk of his car, which according to federal law makes it legal for a gun owner to transport firearms through any state or states in the Union as long as it is a continuous trip. He had read NJ law which requires that any hand gun, maybe any gun, I'm not sure, has to be registered immediately after it is brought into the state. After he got to his mom's house he stayed overnight there before going on to an apartment in the same city that his mom had rented for him. Unfortunately he didn't go directly there for some reason, and after a while and his mom became anxious because he hadn't checked in with her by phone when he got to the apartment. So she called the cops, described him and his car and asked them to find him. They found him alright, and for some unknown reason, unknown to me at least, she had told the cops about the guns in his car. He says that he fully intended to register the guns as soon as he moved into the apartment, which was admittedly not in full compliance with NJ law which apparently requires registration immediately upon arrival. In any case, he was arrested and charged with illegal possession of unregistered firearms or something like that, and a virulently anti-gun judge sentenced him to the maximum sentence of 5 years in state prison where he still remains today.
But here's where the scumbag Christie comes into the picture. He has steadfastly refused every plea from several upstanding, law abiding, NJ citizens to even consider a pardon or even parole for this previously law abiding young man who committed the outrageous, dastardly, horrible crime of, get this, failing to register his guns the same day he arrived in NJ. I realize that NJ is one of the most, if not THE most, anti-gun states in the US, and that the young man did technically violate NJ law by failing to immediately register his guns. But really, does he deserve 5 years out of his life spent in a prison hellhole and after release to become a registered felon unable to legally possess a firearm for the rest of his life?
Christie could at least get him out of that hellhole with a pardon, especially since he has already served a large portion of the 5 year sentence. But he won't even consider it, or as I have read, won't even bother to find out the true facts of the case. My conclusion in re this issue, Christie is nothing more or less than a self-serving scumbag politician who has no place in the GOP lineup EVER.
PROVISO: I think I have stated the facts of this matter correctly as best I know them to be. But since I don't have any personal knowledge regarding the matter and am depending on both what I was told by another gun owner and on my own memory of reading about the matter in a gun magazine, some of what what I recalled and wrote may not be 100% accurate. However, even if my info isn't 100% factual on one or two minor counts, IMHO Christie is still neither a conservative nor a fair minded governor. Instead, he's an anti-gun, foul mouthed, self promoting, fatass politico who is far more interested in enhancing his public image as a hard nosed law enforcer than he is in basic justice, facts, and the Constitutional rights of NJ citizens. And all in an effort to make a successful future run for the White House. Count on it, the media whores are, and only because they know he will lose big time at the national level when the voters learn more about him. I only hope the NJ voters reject him at the next election, and that all Republicans nationwide will learn a lot more about his true colors before the next primary season than the fawning media is reporting.
