Sorry, Gun Owners: Chris Christie No Better Than a Liberal Democrat

New Jersey Chris Christie commuted Brian Aitkens. Too bad he supports every idiotic left-wing gun law that put him in jail. So much for "President Christie."

My latest post is up at Pajamas Media.

Christie comes from a "Blue State" prosecutorial background, where only the goblins and the LEOs he worked with, had guns.

He seems trainable on this issue, but it has to be done the right way from knowledgable, fair-minded gun owners!(like me!!!)

Great, now I don't have to worry about voting for the N.J. Gov.!!! I guess I'll stick with my first choice, that Alaskan huntress of the Great Northern Territories.

Well, he outright said he didn't want to run for President, so I'd say this doesn't matter too much. Also, I really don't put gun issues on the make or break line for a candidate. National defense and fiscal sanity trump guns, abortion, and a whole lot of other issues.

There is a much bigger problem than gun-grabbing right now, and that is the moral bankruptcy of the administration of states in dealing with fiscal problems. The gun-grabbing proclivity, or lack thereof, of CC is not all that important today compared to the 800 lb gorilla of a state going bankrupt over pensions and salaries.

MunDane hit it right on the head. Christie has one HUGE problem right now. How to keep Jersey from going flat broke, boom. Anything else will be a distraction, and that includes doing something stupid like trying to push pro-gun legislation in Bluest Blue NJ. (even if he wanted to)

He's doing exactly what he should be doing for New Jersey's financial health.
