In New Jersey, the legislature is attempting to pass a new control law that would prohibit almost every gun that has a magazine that holds more than 10 shots. The Assembly has already passed it but not by enough to override a veto.
They allowed just 3 hours of testimony before passing the bill. The Senate must pass it, then on to Gov Christie, who has a spotty record on gun control and gun rights. On one hand, he speaks of the benefits of gun control, but recently, he vetoed a law to ban .50 caliber weapons. He has not yet said where he stands on the law.
The Democratic led assembly passed the measure then passed the measure by a 46-31 tally. That would not be enough to override a veto by Chris Christie. Christie’s record on gun control is spotty at best, but he may still believe he has a chance to be president and gun control is a sure loser.
