New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- This year’s gubernatorial election may not make front page news every day, but it will have a big impact on law enforcement, sportsmen and women and New Jersey’s law-abiding gun owners for decades to come.
With the tragic events of Las Vegas still fresh in our minds, now more than ever, the rights of law-abiding citizens enshrined in the Constitution must be protected.
As the NRA-endorsed candidate for New Jersey governor, I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and preserving New Jersey’s hunting and fishing tradition.
I served as the first female sheriff of Monmouth County, and as governor I will be a much needed check and balance on our state’s out of-control state legislature.
My opponent, Phil Murphy, would virtually shut New Jersey down for law-abiding gun owners and decimate the hunting and fishing community if elected governor.
Even though New Jersey has the third strictest gun laws in the country, Phil Murphy has promised he would sign every piece of gun control legislation vetoed by Governor Christie the day he takes office. He has received an “F” from the National Rifle Association and even promised to impose an additional tax on all legal gun sales in New Jersey if elected.
As a former prosecutor and sheriff, I also know that Phil Murphy’s plan to declare New Jersey a sanctuary state is seriously misguided and would make New Jerseyans less safe. By making New Jersey a sanctuary state, Phil Murphy is saying he would rather protect dangerous criminals and murderers than stand up for the law-abiding people of New Jersey. He even went as far as saying he is “biased” towards illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes.
If elected, I will oppose sanctuary cities and ensure that law enforcement is able to do its job to keep us safe. Phil Murphy’s plan to raise taxes by $1.3 billion would be equally disastrous for New Jersey. He has embraced everything from higher tolls and MVC fees to income, sales, business and property taxes.
Instead, I will audit all aspects of state government to save hundreds of millions of dollars and use that money to cut property taxes for the middle class. By capping school taxes to 5% of household income, families across New Jersey could save over $800 on average.
If you value the Second Amendment like I do and want to make New Jersey a more affordable place to live, work and raise a family, I humbly ask for your vote on November 7.
As governor, I will never stop working for the taxpayers of New Jersey.
