    Postak New Jersey expedites magazine and gun ban; only Chris Christie can stop

    The anti-gun politicians that control the New Jersey Legislature are racing to get a magazine and gun ban on Gov. Chris Christie’s desk.A bill that bans magazines over 10 rounds and classifies .22-caliber tube-fed youth rifles as “assault firearms” could hit the governor’s desk as soon as March 27, according to the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs, which is the state’s affiliate for the National Rifle Association (NRA).

    Are you kidding me? If he signs this garbage, and he will, EVERY POS DEMOCRAT in NJ will vote for the fat basturd.
    Only in the People's Republik of Nuevo Yersey is this asshat considered a Conservative.

    I am not kidding, he will never make it past the primarys if he votes for this.

    I wouldn't vote for the fat turd now, but some people will. I think this would be the nail in the coffin for him as far as the primary's go. We will all see the results together though, and this was just my opinion.

    I am hoping Rand Paul gets some traction. My only fear is his Dad's name will drag him down.

    well as expected it passed the assembly

    TRENTON — A bill that would reduce how many rounds a gun ammunition magazine is allowed to hold has taken another step closer to Gov. Chris Christie's desk.

    The state Assembly today voted 46-31 to pass the legislation, which would reduce the permitted capacity from 15 rounds to 10.

    “We have statements, time and time again, from law enforcement officials that have said it is during that time when an individual has had to go to reload that lives have been saved,” said Assemblyman Lou Greenwald (D-Camden), the bill’s sponsor. “And that this legislation, reducing to 10 rounds, is the most significant piece of legislation that will have an impact on peoples’ lives.”

    Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris) called the bill “absurd,” “anti-freedom,” and “unconstitutional,” and said it’s unfair that retired law enforcement officers will still be able to possess the higher capacity magazines.

    “This body intends to treat law-abiding citizens the same way it treats sex offenders, arsonists, burglars and kidnappers,” Carroll said. “For what? A public relations stunt. Because that, Mr. Speaker, is what this bill is all about.”

    Carroll said the bill -- which moved through committee just a week ago -- “will do precisely nothing to save a life but will ruin other lives” by turning gun owners into criminals.

    The bill (A2006) was pushed by some family members of children killed in the 2012 Newtown, Ct. school shooting.

    “It is not a public relations issue to the family of Sandy Hook who lost 20 children – babies – between the ages of six and seven.”

    The bill passed the Assembly last year as well. But it died when Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester), who faced reelection in a competitive district, refused to put it up for a vote in the upper house. Now Sweeney supports the bill, though it has not yet been scheduled for a vote in the Senate.

    Republican Gov. Chris Christie has not said whether he supports the measure, though in response to a question at a town hall last week he hinted he would not sign it by saying he’s vetoed more bills than any governor since at least 1947.

    Another bill passed by the Assembly (A2777) would allow gun owners to make "reasonable deviations" while transporting weapons between home and the range to pick up and drop off passengers, stop for gas, use the bathroom or deal with emergencies. The bill passed by a vote of 42-29 with 4 abstentions. Republicans sought to amend it to give judges more discretion on what kind of stops would be allowed.

    “I think the average lawful gun owner who gets arrested while transporting a weapon, doing the right thing, can find themselves with three to five years in jail because of improper language," said Assemblyman David Rible (R-Monmouth).
