N.J. Anti-Gunners Fail In Gun Bill Veto Override

posted on September 26, 2015

The New Jersey legislature has failed to override Gov. Chris Christie’s veto of a piece of anti-gun legislation that would have piled even more restrictions onto the state’s already overblown plethora of firearm laws.

In his veto message, Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, said he couldn’t support “a continued path of patchwork proposals and fragmented statutes that add further confusion to an already cumbersome area of law.” He has instead proposed a set of reforms to the state’s mental health laws “to better protect our citizens against mass violence.”

Of course, anti-gunners weren’t happy with the failed override attempt. “I am committing to you right now it is coming back until it gets passed,” said Democrat State Sen. Stephen Sweeney.
