In the Party of Trump, controlled by a right-wing, red meat-craving base with xenophobic tendencies, the more extreme a candidate’s policies and rhetoric, the better he or she does in the polls.
That’s why gun-crazy NJ Governor Chris Christie, who just vetoed another TWO gun safety bills, is just one point out of third-place in New Hampshire.
A big part of Christie’s right-wing appeal is his hard-line opposition to common-sense measures to curb gun violence. As governor, Christie has vetoed a number of gun-safety bills, including a .50 caliber rifle ban. Christie’s also elected to pardon multiple individuals charged with gun crimes — amounting to six pardons in 2015, alone.
Just today, Governor Christie’s vetoed two more common-sense gun safety measures:
That second bill, in particular, was objectively non-controversial: The New Jersey Legislature passed it without any opposition, according to Politico.
When it comes to gun safety, Chris Christie is a hardline obstructionist with a gun-crazy ideology that matches Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio’s inflammatory rhetoric.
