Skip to comments.Gov. Christie: Americans need to have a 'national discussion' about gun control
Posted on 12/19/2012 7:47:55 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
TRENTON Gov. Chris Christie said tonight that gun control is one of several issues that must be examined to prevent tragedies like Fridays school shooting in Connecticut.
On New Jersey 101.5 FMs "Ask the Governor," Christie said Americans should engage in a "national discussion" about gun control, as well as the stigma associated with mental health treatment and violence in the media.
"What role does the media play in terms of the violence we see on television and the movies? And the violent video games that I think desensitize our children to the real effects of violence. So I think we have to have a national discussion," the governor said.
When asked whether gun control was an issue as well, Christie said, "Gun control absolutely has to be part of that discussion too."
Christie said New Jersey has the second-toughest gun laws in the nation, behind New York. "Ive been a supporter of that as governor and will continue to be," he said.

In the Bible, the “whore of Babylon” is not exclusively female. Just sayin’.
Don't you just love that phrase? All the pols are suddenly using it. It sounds so reasonable, like everybody in America gets to speak and give their opinion, and be listened to.
What it REALLY means is, "we need more gun control."
While you are “dicsussing,” the rest of us are buying guns like mad.
He needs to worry about his own damn state.
These east coast governors seem to think they matter to the rest of the country.
Yeah, just like we had a national discussion about race.
And we see how well that turned out.
The national discussion about guns should be a bp-sized blast......
Beggin’ your pardon, sir, but how long would it take you to know you’d been shot?
Hey Governour Chrispie Kreme, we already HAD a national discussion about gun control. Your side lost it a long time ago.
He ate them.......
I think a discussion on gun control is very important.
It should be discussed and practiced on the gun range.
