Poll: What Do You Think of the Governor's Veto of the Latest Gun Bill?
Is Chris Christie protecting the Second Amendment, pandering to his political base, or . . . ?
On Monday, Gov. Chris Christie conditionally vetoed legislation that would have scaled back the size of the clips legally allowed in semi-automatic rifles in New Jersey, reducing magazine capacity to 10 rounds, down from 15. In place of the bill the governor sent the Legislature a list of reforms for strengthening the state's mental health system. Before vetoing the bill, Christie refused to meet with a delegation of parents of children murdered in the mass shooting at Newtown, CT. The governor also said that the gun lobby did not influence his veto.
