New Jersey Could Face Anti-Gun Onslaught Under New Governor

posted on August 10, 2017

As bad as New Jersey currently is for gun owners, there’s a chance that things could get much worse. The election of an anti-gun governor could remove obstacles to a blitz from the anti-gun Democrats who dominate the state legislature.

Sen. Loretta Weinberg, whose legacy is tied up in the state’s disastrous “smart gun” mandate, is hoping for the election of former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy. Weinberg told NJ101.5 that she had already apprised Murphy, “I have at least 20 bills ready the day he walks in that have all been vetoed by Gov. Christie.”

By vetoing at least nine egregiously anti-gun bills and pardoning several law-abiding citizens who unintentionally violated the state’s draconian gun laws, Christie has acted as the one effective check on a den of radically anti-gun lawmakers. It will be a bad day for New Jersey gun owners if those same politicians see the election of one of their own.
