    2016 Nomination

    With decisions like this, I'm thinking he's not getting the nomination, what a RINO

    If Chris Christie is the best that NJ has to offer, all is lost.
    He looks a lot like Michael Bloomberg, without the $ billions.

    In NY or NJ, CT, and a bunch of other Northeast states, being one and a half hairs right of the cross-hair is enough to run as a "Republican"...and enough to be elected.
    Yeah, I was born and raised in CT, so I have seen all of this. Google Dick Blumenthal, Oympia Snowe and Susan Collins for starters...and pm me if you want some more.

    I didn't think gun measures in New Jersey could get much worse than they already are. :scrutiny:

    Good thing he is going to try to ban the Barrett, considering all of the people who have caused serious mayhem with one recently ever.

    Good on him for taking relevant measures to reduce violent crime.

    Banning the Barrett is a purely symbolic gesture.

    But then, gun control has always been about symbol and not reality.

    But of course. 15 gangbanger cars = 1 Barrett in price. Gun control is about political theater as you correctly noted.

    Watch out I was explained to that his weight was OFF Limits here at the HR. He is killing any chance of getting elected because the South will not vote for him.

    His weight is off-limits for the same reason that Dianne Feinstein's looks are. Utterly irrelevant to the problems these folks instigate, and dumbing down and blunting of our efforts by going for low, grade school cheap shots instead of incisive, intelligent assaults on their positions.

    We are smarter and better than that. If you find yourself NOT above that sort of thing, we ask that you stay quiet while the adults are talking.

    ...


    Anyway, does anyone have a text of a bill here? What's specifically being put on the table?

    it doesn't look like there's a bill yet, just him asking certain things to be introduced.

    I'll start calling on Monday and blowing up his phone.
    Guess I should also call his opponent(s) and see where they stand.

    It seems the majority of the people in states like NJ, NY, and CT want these draconian laws. They've been brainwashed. Over forty years of public schools, universities, and the media telling them they are better than us, more evolved, and enlightened without guns. Sad.

    Christie is just a product of his constituency.

    True! Which is why such places are a great spot to exercise that function of government which is to protect the rights of the minority from the wishes of the majority!

    Ah! The Barret .50 caliber. :eek:

    Because they can be used to shoot down airplanes.

    Never mind trying to explain to any of'em how hard it would be to even hit a commercial airliner with a single shot...at an unknown altitude, distance, speed, and angle...much less hit one in just the right place to compromise its flight capability. They've got their minds made up.

    I know. I've tried. It's like arguing with a drunk.

    I don't know the answer to that, but I'm certain the antis don't care to know the answer. They just want what they want.

    Christie has now through his own actions, joined his fellow governor across the Hudson River, Cuomo, in assuring that he will never be president of the united states.

    What a great question! Almost sounds like a Bill of Attainder, doesn't it? Almost.

    I'm glad I left nj 30 or more years ago, it used to be a decent place, but I guess things change. I still have a brother living there and I think ever he has gone over to the dark side.
