We all knew it would happen one day, this final divorce from the political scene. It's been building for a long time, but before I get ahead of myself, let me explain how I got into politics. I've never really been in politics, per se. I've never run for office, I've never been an active part of a party, but I have donated, worked hard to persuade others of my views, and diligently voted, as well as followed the political scene very closely. It all began my final year at Clemson [read more]
Gov. Chris Christie’s gradual pivot away from the gun control policies he had advocated as New Jersey governor took its sharpest turn yet Sunday evening on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.
The governor and Republican presidential candidate, while fielding questions from a town hall meeting, took sole credit for keeping the Second Amendment “alive” in New Jersey, which is he said is home to “some of the worst gun laws in America” despite his office voicing support for the state’s firearm laws well before he launched his presidential bid.
“The problem with guns in this country are criminals. Everything we need to make you safer is already on the books and then some,” Christie said.
“If you go to the person that’s in charge of the New Jersey Pistol and Gun Club, what he’ll tell you is the only reason that the Second Amendment is still alive in New Jersey is because I’ve been governor for the last six years,” he said.
First of all, let’s get one thing straight you collectivist windbag. No one is safer because of your laws because you won’t allow anyone to be legally armed in their own self defense. God gives us the right to self defense, not the second amendment. The second amendment applies to everyone and everywhere whether you exist or not. Therefore, you can’t take credit for anything of the sort. You will only answer for your own refusal to acknowledge men’s rights before God. You have everything backwards.
But as for this notion of asking the “person in charge of the New Jersey Pistol and Gun Club” about this, I don’t believe you. I think you’re a liar. So I’ve taken it upon myself to contact them myself and I will publish any response I get.
I think you’re a liar and you never really talked to the “person in charge” of anything pertaining to gun rights. And I don’t think that’s what they will say at all.
