We’ve landed on a revelation concerning Chris Christie.

Jumping on the bandwagon, is he? Or not.

Christie is a gun-grabber from way back. He has Presidential aspirations. But he will never be President because he doesn’t believe in the second amendment. Well, in addition to the fact that he is a loud mouth blowhard.
