Posted on 04/20/2013 1:01:35 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Gov. Chris Christie on Friday unveiled a multi-faceted plan to curb gun violence in New Jersey that includes expanding government-funded mental health treatment, requiring parental sign-off before children can buy or rent violent video games, and mandating that ID presented by would-be gun-owners is government-issued.
The Republicans plan also includes a ban on the sale of Barrett .50-caliber semi-automatic sniper rifles, bail reforms that would make it harder for people suspected of violent gun crimes to be released, and provisions to make it easier for courts and health care professionals to involuntarily commit people they consider violent to a psychiatric hospital.
The plan does not address classroom security or propose stricter limits on the capacity of ammunition magazines, which in New Jersey stands at 15 rounds.

How many people have actually been shot with a Barrett .50?
Thank God they outlawed those Barrett 50 Calibers here in Commiefornia.
After all, there were ZERO Crimes ever committed using a Barrett, but you never know when a Teenage Muslim might get a hold of one...
Just when you think even Liberals and RINOS can’t be that stupid, your worst fears are realized.
I think Christie wants them outlawed because it’s the only Rifle powerful enough to take down such a big hulking mass.
I’ve never heard of one used in a crime.
It’s hard to imagine a fascist toilet like New Jersey still has any more “gun control” measures left to pursue. I think Governor Pork Porkie is just trying to burnish his resume with the Democrats he hopes will nominate him for their 2016 presidential ticket. Maybe he can get Ann Coulter to campaign for him.
I'd like to see how it could get around United States v. Miller.
The plan does not address classroom security
Of course not, why solve the actual problem when you can ban things that aren't used in crimes??
>> The Republicans plan also includes a ban on the sale of Barrett .50-caliber semi-automatic sniper rifles,
What a bunch of #ing anal douche bags.
>> Ive never heard of one used in a crime.
More gubmint control and expansion and intrusion into our business. No thank you very much. The communist leader class just doesn’t get it.
Gonna make it illegal to shoot moose-limb terrorists.
So what happened to the “Christie for Prez” crowd around here? They hanging around with the “Scott Brown for Prez” crowd?
They are busy reading some Ann Coulter drivel.
Why Barrett? There’s other brands. Does Krispy have something against guns manufactured in Tennessee?
Things just seem to get worse every election cycle, the way it’s going now Bloomberg will be back claiming to be a republican again.
The pols want to get rid of them because they can punch right through limo, from any direction.
Thinking of their own safety, as usual.
Back prior to 1968 I owned a share of a Boys antitank rifle, even hotter than .50BMG. Shot down a few trees, never tried it on a limo.
In America? zero as far as I know.
