    Postak New Jersey: Gov. Christie vetoes three gun control bills

    Gov. Christie rejected three major pieces of gun control legislation Friday that Democrats passed following last year's fatal school shootings in Connecticut.Despite proposing a ban on purchases of the Barrett .50 caliber gun and similar weapons in April, Christie vetoed a bill that would have done just that.He said Friday that the bill went too far, in that it would have criminalized current and future ownership of all .50 caliber guns, which have never been used in crimes in New Jersey, but are used by marksmen for long range, precision shooting.

    Although I'm glad he vetoed the gun control bills - I wonder if he is trying to look more progun before the next presidential elections (where he might be a candidate). Just a random thought...
