    I just received a response from Governor Christie regarding my letter telling him he was absolutely wrong to admonish the NRA for bringing up President Obama's children as well as the children of other polititians being protected by armed security while at school.

    Why do polititians have trouble understanding the best way to protect schools is by armed security personnel when they are doing just that for their children?

    Because its about taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens, thus unarming the country.

    GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE ELECTRONIC RESPONSE



    February 5, 2013

    Dear Friend:


    Thank you for writing to express your opposition to new laws regarding gun control.

    I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.

    Acting on my commitment to take a full and comprehensive look at the intersection of gun control, addiction, mental health and school safety in New Jersey, I have created the NJ SAFE Task Force. The Task Force will be chaired by two former attorneys general of New Jersey and members who have expertise in the fields of mental health diagnosis and treatment, addiction services and treatment, law enforcement and school safety.

    Violence in our society has never been solely about firearms, and we would miss an opportunity to better prevent the roots of violence if we didn't look at the complete picture. If we are truly going to take an honest and candid assessment of violence and public safety, we have to look more deeply at the underlying causes of many acts of violence. That means removing the stigma and evaluating issues of mental health, addiction, prevention and treatment services alongside the effectiveness of our firearms laws, enforcement mechanisms and our school safety measures. This task force will convene immediately and report back with its findings.

    My commitment has always been to evaluate public safety, criminal policy and behavioral science with an approach that recognizes that these issues cannot be separated from one another. The SAFE Task Force will further my commitment in that regard as we look at how we can better guarantee violence control.

    I hope you find this information helpful. Thank you again for writing.

    Sincerely,


    Chris Christie

    Governor

    Christy says that New Jersey is so anti gun that he has to support that constituency. He is unabashedly anti gun and that will get him reelected in a state that has gone mad. You don't want him to be a presidential candidate. He's little better than Obama, because he's little different. He'll do anything to be reelected. I've had enough of those kind of politicians.

    Are we now competing for which state will violate the 2nd Amendment the most? Well, New York passed a rediculous law but New Jersey will one up you. Seems to me we have too many liberal Democrats and worthless RINO Republicans that have zero respect for the Constitution. Please vote these people out of office. BT100dc

    You'd better get out of NJ. It's become a whole different and dangerous country. New York State's no better.

    Are the rest of these states like Illinois? Where the whole state isn't rotten but the cities? Cities getting too big, powerful and corrupt have been the bane of civilization since the beginning of time. The beat goes on.

    Barry----Your right---N.J. is run by 6 or 7 inner citys---Just like the rest of the blue states in the north and far west---That's who put the president in office----We (us) are in deep do-do----Too many folks voting for a living.
    They are taking our rights away drip by drip----These bills will be tough to beat in N.J.---The LIBS are strong and getting stronger----Romney said 47%
    Well he was wrong---It's more like 52% and climbing----
    Wish us well---We need a turn around----
