New Jersey Second Amendment Society On NJ Governor Christie’s Veto Of Bad Gun Control Bills

New Jersey --(Ammoland.com)- Last Friday afternoon, Governor Christie vetoed the three most offensive gun ownership restrictions passed by the New Jersey Senate and Assembly this year.

These bills were deemed the “centerpiece” of what Senate President Steve Sweeney referred to as his “National Model“.

The Governor’s veto of these bills is a monumental victory for law-abiding firearms owners in the State of New Jersey. Thankfully, Governor Christie realized this type of legislation is not appropriate for New Jersey or as a model for the rest of the country.

The Governor was correct in ignoring the pleas of gun-grabbing organizations based out of state, like “Ceasefire New Jersey” and “Heeding God’s Call”. These organizations lobbied to further oppress the law-abiding New Jersey firearms owner, but have no standing whatsoever in our state. The project director of Ceasefire New Jersey lives in New York and the organization has no status as a New Jersey Corporation. Heeding God’s Call is a Pennsylvania-based 501(c)3 that has no business lobbying anywhere, let alone in New Jersey.

These gun-grabbing groups are not interest in the welfare of New Jersey’s citizens. Like the prohibitionists of old, they want to come here and destroy something they don’t personally like.

The Constitution doesn’t work like that, and it is time they learned that lesson.

The members and supporters of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society worked long and hard to send a message to the Governor about these bills. We are grateful that he took the time to review our concerns and to agree with our position. We would also like to recognize the other organizations that played a part in this victory to defeat this “national model” legislation. The California-based Firearms Policy Coalition hosted a contest that encouraged citizens throughout the country to take part in the campaign to convince Governor Christie to veto these bills. We would also like to recognize our friends at Pro-Gun New Hampshire who voiced their opposition to these onerous provisions proclaimed a “national model” by NJ Senate President Sweeney.

To everyone that participated in this campaign to prevent the further progress of these bills, we thank you and we give you our promise that we will continue to fight for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in New Jersey and throughout the Nation.

You can be certain the New Jersey Second Amendment Society will be there when it counts.

Thank you,

    1. Don’t get the idea that Christie is pro Second Amendment; he’s not. He has signed many anti Second Amendment bills that prevent citizens from buying guns if they are on a no-fly list, which is arbitrary and without recourse. He also said he would have signed the 50 caliber ban had it not been confiscatory. Christie is a rabid anti-gunner and will do everything politically feasible to take your second amendment rights.

    2. WarriorClass III has it right. He would have signed the 50 caliber ban. Christie wants to have it both ways – to claim he’s a “conservative” and “protecting” rights in some instances, while legislating away your rights in others.

      Some naive people might leap to defend him saying something like, “well that means’ he’s balanced!” That’s not “balance”, that’s pandering to the left and using our rights as toilet paper. He just wipes a little slower than the typical Democrat.

      Agreed, anyone who falls for this little stunt and considers him a pro-gun governor is a fool. If this guy is who the R puts up for pres in 2016 might as well vote Hillary, as Christie probably should have a D behind his name and scares me more since he might be more effective in destroying us faster.

      Just remember, governor, New Jersey, if he was pro-gun NJ would be more so too….

    4. christie is scum,…a bloomberg,obama,feinstein puppet. Those vetos are pure political,nothing more.

    5. Chrispy Cream is as pro-gun as he is a conservative eater.
