We’ve landed on a revelation concerning Chris Christie.
“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.

Christie said New Jersey has the second toughest gun laws in the nation, behind New York. “I’ve been a supporter of that as governor and will continue to be,” he said.
Jumping on the bandwagon, is he? Or not.
In his first campaign for elective office in 1995, Christie based his bid for the state Assembly on supporting New Jersey’s assault-weapons ban.
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.
