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).
Scott Bach, the executive director of the gun rights club, thinks the Democrats who control the Legislature are speeding up the legislative timetable for purely political reasons.
“They want to put Gov. Christie in a corner if he runs for president and keep the negative headlines coming,” Mr. Bach told me Tuesday. “Democrats are intent on delivering this legislation to the governor’s desk, but New Jersey gun owners are tenacious and resisting with everything they’ve got.”
