    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie under the gun over ammo bill, as White House beckons

    "N.J. Gov. Chris Christie will face a difficult decision in the coming days over an ammunition restriction bill that’s nearly found its way to his desk — and the pressure from the Second Amendment activists and the gun-control crackdown crowd could very well hang the fate of his White House aspirations.

    The legislation seeks to reduce the allowable capacity for ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, down from 15. It’s passed through the Senate and heads to the lower house for a second vote, where support is strong. Mr. Christie could see it within days, NJ.com reported. And pressure is mounting for him to take a side."

    The bill A2006 2R http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2014/Bi...00/2006_R2.HTM

    Lawmakers debated the bill on the Senate floor for 45 minutes today, with Republicans arguing it will do little to reduce gun violence and save lives and Democrats countering that forcing gunmen to change magazines more frequently will give people more time to escape during mass shootings.

    it's almost comical but not..... i hear of gangs in memphis shooting people with 22 revolvers all the time. whereas if i was confronted by 2-3 criminals, i may need my g17s full mag capacity of 17+1.

    I don't think much of Christie, he will probably sign it. IMO he is progressive in republican clothing waiting to feast on the sheep.

    He sure looks like he's been doing a lot of feasting.

    There is nothing in progressivism prevented by or incompatible with republicanism. The progressives have steadily coopted our living language to appear what they are not. The true one-dimensional political spectrum, one with a left-hand and right-hand extreme is the progressive/anti-progressive hierarchy.

    Progressivism is the political bowel movement to make-things-better, and practiced by historicist prophets.

    Just for clarification.... You seem to be saying you'll rather have a guy in office with a known history of antisemitism, holocaust history and national socialism vs the guy who just might be a progressive? And no, I don't think that progressivism is a good thing!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    At least Hitler was honest about his intentions (he was voted into office too) .... and he's dead so he would not do much to limit our RKBA. Just have his hat sitting on a desk.

    It would stink for Jersey residents if he signs it. But it would also be another nail in the coffin of his aspirations to get the Republican nomination for POTUS, which is a good thing. We do not want that assclown anywhere near the White House. While not perfect Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is a far better choice when it comes to gun rights and economic issues.

    What are these people still doing in office? Every single one of them that voted for this should be removed from their positions. Senators can and should be impeached for violating their oath of office and voting for a law that restricts the keeping or bearing of arms is a violation of that oath.
    "Which part of shall not be infringed is so difficult to understand"?

    "Any and all restrictions on the bearing of arms in public places are nullified as per the Second Amendment"
