I’ve never liked Christie. One look at his stance on RKBA told me everything I needed to know about him.
When it comes to RKBA, I make Ted Nugent look “middle of the road”.
How a politician feels about us exercising that one, basic, fundamental HUMAN Right tells you almost everything you need to know about them and what they would do TO you given political power.

My sentiments exactly, brother.
They don’t place the same value on my life as I do. Therefore, I will do whatever I have to do to protect myself.
If the Public Servants have armed protection around the clock, I will too.
Pretty much period.
My only two hot-button issues are life and guns. If you do not have an absolute right to life, and the right to defend it, all other rights, arguments and propositions are purely academic. A pol who wants to take away my ability to protect myself and my loved ones is at best ignorant, and thinks he's actually acting in my interests by removing that ability. At worst, he's malignant and the removal of my ability to defend myself is wholly an intentional stepping stone on the path to some greater design.
That's not to say I don't have very strong opinions on most other issues, but I will, to varying degrees forgive or accept a pol's differences on them. The above two are entirely non-negotiable.
Exactly so. That has been my fundamental litmus test for 30+ years, a result of having a good understanding of history, especially the history of 20th Century totalitarianism.
