Christie bailing out on gun rights?

posted at 5:31 pm on April 20, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

For a time last year there was some serious chatter about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo being a potential Democrat nominee for 2016. Even if Hillary weren’t likely going to be in the hunt, I’m pretty sure that chatter ended once Cuomo took the shocking, overreaching measures of passing the gun grabbing SAFE Act and then signing an abortion bill which gave even some moderately pro-choice people pause. He had sailed so far off the Left fringe of the map that he would be easy meat for any Republican in the swing states.

This weekend, I have to wonder if one of his frequently mentioned counterparts from across the aisle, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie isn’t getting ready to head down the same trail. While the nation’s eyes were riveted on the Boston bombing, the West, Texas explosion and other tragedies, Christie was moving to increase gun control laws in a state which is already one of the most restrictive in the nation.

Days after the U.S. Senate killed off their gun control bill, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced expanded gun control measures in his state. The move isn’t likely to win him points with conservatives. In Christie’s plan he even bans a certain gun according to NJ101.5…

At the announcement of Christie’s NJ SAFE Taskforce in January in the aftermath of Newtown, he talked about targeting and treating the root causes of violence. Too many times there are instances of unspeakable tragedy and the question is asked how such tragedy could have been prevented. His proposals is this area include;

Making it easier for health professionals and courts to require potentially dangerous people to receive the treatment they need whether it is in the form of inpatient or outpatient care. This will allow the monitoring of their progress and ensure they are receiving the kind of specific care they need.

Creating flexibility in the type of care an individual is receiving, making it easier for someone to move from inpatient to outpatient settings.

Changing the current standard of involuntary outpatient treatment to eliminate the uncertainty expressed by clinicians and courts regarding their authority to order this type of essential assistance.

The mental health angle, more vulnerable to abuse than all the rest, is precisely the one that Cuomo used in NY to begin scouring the medical records of people who were prescribed anxiety or depression medicine and sending out the troops to confiscate their weapons. One would think that Christie would have the sense and the political survival skills to look at this particular pond much more closely before diving in.

He additionally includes provisions about going after regulation in the sales of video games. None of the proposed restrictions look all that heinous, but it’s yet another case of layering complications on the lives of private citizens where families should be doing the heavy lifting. I don’t know if this will be a negative watershed moment for Christie, but the folks in Iowa are already watching nervously here.

“Middle America is always suspect of the guys from the East Coast in these matters,” said Craig Robinson, who runs the influential Iowa Republican blog. “What is your understanding and foundation on issues like this? Plenty of Iowa Republicans are already grumbling at him. If he were to go another step further and sign into law the gun thing, or the marriage thing, I think it would almost disqualify him as a national candidate.”

MustLoveBlogs on April 20, 2013 at 5:45 PM

I want to know who “they” are.

We keep being told that some people out there pushing Christie to run as the GOP candidate for President in 2016. Who are these people because there is nothing about the fat bastard who endorsed the rat-eared coward days before the election that makes him fit for office (in all senses of the word fit).

But, his name keeps coming up and there is clearly a push even harder than Dole, McCain, or Romney. Where is it coming from and why? It is clear to me that Christie is unelectable because of his left-of-center views. He sneers and alienates social conservatives and does not attract Democrats because if you are going to vote for a gun-grabbing anti-life bastard- why switch parties to do it?

“They” need to take a flying leap off a short pier.

Happy Nomad on April 20, 2013 at 5:46 PM

This FAT PIG can use a little Bloomberging and only get a 12oz Soda, No Salt, Zero Trans Fat, and be REQUIRED to exercise daily. Wait, it’s not for the “Special People” even if they are Fat, Grotesque, Monsters unable to control themselves at the table, my bad!

Christie is a Fat F’n Slob that needs to push his Fat Azz away from the Table, so he doesn’t have time to worry about others guns.

Give Fat boy a Salad and a treadmill and when he loses about 1/2 ton we might just listen to him about the other issues, maybe. Fat, Drunk and Stupid is no way to go through life,according to Dean Wormer. Remember; Knowledge is Good.

Tbone McGraw on April 20, 2013 at 5:47 PM

I can understand why this would damage Christie’s reputation nationally, but I don’t think that Iowa Republicans in particular should have any special influence. Why shouldn’t it be South Dakota or Kansas or Nebraska Republicans grumbling at Christie instead?

The fact that the Iowa Republican Party may be good at scheduling an early caucus doesn’t mean that they have particular expertise in selecting a presidential candidate, or even counting the votes in their own caucus.

but, it speaks volumes about the ‘polarization’ of the states. (i seriously hate that word). IL just rebuffed a gun measure.

Our main hope is to cling to Federalism. the left seems to have a lock on 240 EV votes at the president level. Prying those away needs to be job one. If not, we’ll have one set of states (leftist) ruling over another set of states (red)

There is no longer a gun behind every blade of grass and they know it.

As a nation we are lazy and selfish and they know it.

i remember with great sadness at the Reagan Library? some poor woman beached Christie to run in 2012…the crowd was with her. Simply because he stood up to some left wing unionists.

I’m sure none of those people would vote for him with the current info we have.

What since the Sandy Hook shooting was about anything but a decades-old agenda item to grab all the guns from private citizens. Seriously, even the incident in CT did not generate any law in CT or the Congress that would have kept one of those sweet children from being killed. Even bringing their despicable parents to DC to shamelessly campaign for the rat-eared coward didn’t change that fact.

In the meantime, last weekend in Chicago (a gun-free city) four people were killed and 21 were killed by guns. There is no legislation pending that would change the underlying societal factors to change that reality. Things like eradicating gangs and gang violence. Encouraging families instead of three generations of single women under the same roof raising children from a series of baby daddies. And having strong male role models around to break the cycle that is so clearly established. NONE of that has even been broached as the left has decided to criminalize private gun ownership.

Amazing that Republicans even consider Christie a “national candidate.” Well, amazing to me but not surprising that the Republican Party is seriously considering him. Why wouldn’t the same party that offered us McCain and the Romney now give us Christie?

The Communists control MSM, public school system, most of the governments (at all levels, including our President Obama who was elected twice), and are on the verge of controlling The Law.

I hear you on these specifics, but I would just make two points:

Clark’s Kosovo campaign was an utter disaster from the start. He should have been booted out of the military the minute everything went haywire in the first days (for those who remember the chaos and the fact that no contingency plans were made for much of anything). I also don’t know what sort of scholar Clark would qualify as.

Jhen-jis Kherry … seems to only have the skill of marrying money.

You’re correct that there will be exceptions to the general rule (not these two dorks, but others) but I like the quote as a general rule.

The conservative firebrand also surprisingly defended and seemingly backed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for president after she told CPAC he is “off my list” only ten days ago.

“I’m warming to him again,” Coulter said of Christie. “I’m waiting for him to switch on amnesty, and I have confidence in his high I.Q.”

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on April 20, 2013 at 6:26 PM

Christie loves to brag about not answering to anyone but the voters. No special interest groups, not even the press (yeah, right). If he decides to run (for office since any other kind of running would kill him), he will be the flavor of one of the months but will give his tough guy act and say something stupid and he will be done. Unless he runs as a democrat. Then all he would need is a drug habit or a mistress and he would be a shoe-in for the nomination.

I do too obviously and thanks. Very smart people back then, much common sense from the classics and the founders of this country as well. Funny, as an enlisted guy, I actually study them all the time, to know my craft, I have been told I read too much, never understood that. My enlisted brethren seem to think that it is ok to cede that to the officer corps, but to me that is binding the mind to tyranny and I can’t do that, not in my nature. Of course it does tend to pit me against the officer corps alot, but it is my job to say no, so that at least there is a dialogue about things before executed.

While Christie is attempting to address the problems of the mentally ill, I haven’t been able to locate exactly what it is he’s trying to accomplish. It’s one step in the right direction (depending on what it is / how implemented). Anyone familiar with Cho, Loughner, Harris and Lanza can appreciate that. As was found out, most states don’t even forward the names to the FBI/NICS on those found mentally incompetent.

I have seen it written that Christie wants to ban the .50 Barrett BOLT ACTION rifle. Yeah, they have a semi-auto model, but it’s only sold to LE and military.

The Barrett is currently banned as AN ASSAULT WEAPON in The People’s Repubik of Kalifornia. Now Lady Diane likes to say that certain sick people like ASSAULT WEAPONS because they can be fired from the hip. I’d really like to see Lady Di, or even the Governator (who signed the bill) fire the Barrett from the hip. The weapon is almost 6 FEET long. It weighs in excess of 25 pounds. The muzzle blast is horrendous. Our local club will only allow them to be fired at one position on the extreme right of the line…..behind a blast wall.

Why would anyone want one? Extreme sports. Some folks like the challenge of shooting competition and hitting a target beyond 1000 yards. Some people like fast boats. Some like cars that can travel in excess of 150mph. Of all the folks I’ve met while engaged in competitive target shooting, I’ve only met one who owned a Barrett. A retired school teacher/Grandmother. Go figure.

Im glad he is letting his inner progressive douche show, that way i dont have to hear about him being the next great hope of the GOP in 2016. Let him stay in NJ forever….he could even steal a Senate seat there eventually…ill take that, but otherwise…Christie is persona non grata in my book.

You need to go check out the cover on “Three for Keeps” think it will show you what you want;) Didn’t we see that scenario in “Van Helsing” except I think it was vampire babies;)

Axe, truthfully you guys are all way smarter than this guy will ever be, I never take myself too seriously, well except when protecting “Her” then all bets are off. I post here because I learn and you never give yourself enough credit because even in your more lighthearted stuff is much wisdom, much more than I will ever carry in my brain pan.

At least he has the Coulter vote.

TitularHead on April 20, 2013 at 5:37 PM

Nope — Coulter has dropped him.

Dasher on April 20, 2013 at 6:08 PM

Yeah, just like she, of the fleeting principles, dropped Sarah Palin on behalf of the GOP elites?

The conservative firebrand also surprisingly defended and seemingly backed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for president after she told CPAC he is “off my list” only ten days ago.

“I’m warming to him again,” Coulter said of Christie. “I’m waiting for him to switch on amnesty, and I have confidence in his high I.Q.”

Four words: Three Cheers for Romneycare.

Coulter is both a fraud and a cancer on the Conservative movement. The sooner she is blackballed, rejected and shunned, the better.

Myron Falwell on April 20, 2013 at 7:27 PM

BAILING?

How can Christie BAIL on something that he never supported in the first place? Christie has always been 100% anti-2nd Amendment, and 100% anti-gun. Christie is a flaming, treasonous liberal.

Pork-Chop on April 20, 2013 at 7:30 PM

Christie will switch parties around 2014…then hope he can be the VP pick for the Democratic party in 2016…

Hey Pop’s! You’re back!

You keeping tabs on me?

Kinda hard to spit venom and victimization when every one is focused on real things like this week, huh?

Huh?

Funny though, more vitriol, treason indicting, and accusations of being sick a demented for Christie and Rubio et al. than for ACTUAL treasonous, sick and demented bombers. I suppose you may be one of those who spent the last few days more worried about how seeing what Boston was capable of will reflect on you or your actions in the future though. No?

Can’t with to hear the GOP elites tell us that Christie is OUR GUY in 2016!

Rational Thought on April 20, 2013 at 5:35 PM

Yeah, and their surrogates will be posting about that here and other blogs like they did for Romney and McCain.

1. Closer to The Man with Two Brains and Young Frankenstein in my head. :)

2. Checked out Three for Keeps, by Lila Munro. Had to hold my hand up to save myself from the bottom of the cover. :) Close, and the stethoscope introduces a whole new set of possibilities, but . . . meh. Most women pale.

3. You give me too much credit. Ask anyone. :)

4. You sell yourself short.

Axe on April 20, 2013 at 8:08 PM

“Christie” and the word “Principle” should never appear in the same sentence !

Sandybourne on April 20, 2013 at 8:11 PM

Christie pisses off all the right people in my book. He could go all the way to the White House riding a populist wave.

keep the change on April 20, 2013 at 8:14 PM

Christie will never win again on the republican ticket.

TX-96 on April 20, 2013 at 8:15 PM

Christie – it’s whats for dinner. ( not that bleached out bag of antlered skanks ever eat dinner)

It would figure that you think pissing off the right people is peachy when the people he pissed off is anyone with two brain cells to rub together or a sliver of morals to stick to.

MelonCollie on April 20, 2013 at 8:29 PM

Laughing at all of the Christie hate

You right wingers HATE everybody….as usual, nothing new over here at HA..just a bunch of haters

Y’all need to hang out over at Huffo or Democratic undergound….I’d love to see the fireworks…

Us middle of the road folks who actually decide elections laugh our asses off at both of you

You wish.

Redford on April 20, 2013 at 8:31 PM

Keep laughing, mental midget, the libtards are laughing by the tens of millions at you uppity retards who think you count for cr@p.

Here’s a little inconvenient truth: one major city’s worth of Democrat welfare voters has more sway than you lot. Let THAT sink in how irrelevant you are.

MelonCollie on April 20, 2013 at 8:37 PM

He can do whatever he wants in NJ. If he is on the ticket for 2016 then the GOP can kiss my lily white a$$. I won’t vote for him.

I dislike and distrust the mental health industry anyway. Too many drugs are handed out for “mental disorders” these days. For example boys tend to be loud and out of control yet many idiotic parents put them on drugs as a substitute to parenting them, in other words doing their job.

William Eaton on April 20, 2013 at 8:53 PM

After his moronically-timed stroll along the beach with Odumbo, I said I’d never vote for Christie, the fat POS.

What happens in NJ might not stay in NJ, but that fat-head may as well.

Were I to use the amount of profanity I think sufficient to describe this practice, Gabriel would come cut my tongue out. A few children can really truly benefit from the proper medication. But I really wonder if at least half of the cases could be cured with home remedies of a peach tree switch to the backside until Junior payed attention. We didn’t have these problems where teachers could swat unruly students and parents didn’t put some nonsense from a shrink before the Biblical admonition about a rod.

And things have only gotten worse. As the excuse of ADD & ADHD has worn too thin, the popular ‘diagnosis’ has switched to autism, to the point where it’s becoming a running joke among the cynical, and true autism cases are not funny.

MelonCollie on April 20, 2013 at 8:58 PM

There’s a reason I voted for Steve Lonegan in the primary and it’s because I don’t trust Christie. He is not a limited government Conservative. He’s a big government busybody in the mold of Bloomberg. He was the lesser of two evils against Corzine who was just a corrupt, incompetent buffoon, but I doubt I’d be willing to vote for Christie ever again.
