Governor Chris Christie, once a Republican, surreptitiously admits that he’s running for president, as a Democrat. Proposes new gun control laws that he acknowledges won’t affect criminal’s behavior. But it will harass and hinder law abiding citizens, which is the hallmark of Democratic policy, in everything. Christie’s policy is obviously designed to repel Republicans and make him more attractive to Democrats – picture it as next waddle in his career plans after serving as Obama’s butt boy during Hurricane Sandy.
The plan calls for expanding New Jersey’s already strict gun control laws, expanding government-funded mental health treatment [higher taxes], making it more difficult for kids buy or rent violent video games, requiring that would-be gun owners show government-issued IDs and bolstering penalties for gun-related crimes. [Oh, and imposing an absolute ban on the Barret .50 caliber, a bolt-action gun costing $10,000 and is four-feet long, and until today known only to Christie as a popular weapon for mass murder].
According to the Brady Campaign, New Jersey already has the second-most extensive set of gun control laws, after California. According to the Tax Foundation, New Jersey had the second-highest state tax rate in 2010, and the 49th worst business tax climate.
A pure Democrat agenda, but can he switch parties in time for the primaries?
