NJ: Gov. Christie Conditionally Vetoes Two Bad Bills

posted on August 26, 2016

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s conditional veto of “Justifiable Need” and “Smart Gun” legislation on Wednesday is a step forward for law-abiding gun owners in the Garden State. 

The two anti-gun bills—A.3689 and S.816— were opposed by NRA, but were ultimately adopted by anti-gun politicians. The governor’s conditional vetoes return the bills back to the legislature with suggested language, which if adopted, would drastically improve a pair of draconian gun laws.

As Gov. Christie expressed to NRA-ILA, “For decades, law-abiding residents of New Jersey have had their Second Amendment right to self-protection burdened by gun laws that are among the most unreasonable in the country. … Rather than doubling down on the unreasonable requirements for law-abiding residents of New Jersey to obtain a concealed-carry permit, I propose having New Jersey join the 42 other states that have adopted a ‘shall-issue’ standard for approving such applications.”
