New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ® vetoed legislation on Friday that would have banned .50-caliber rifles from the state, despite backing the same proposal just months ago.
In April 2013, Christie recommended banning the sale of Barrett .50-caliber semi-automatic sniper rifles as part of a group of proposals to curb gun violence. On Friday, Christie said the ban wouldn't make the Garden State any more safe, according to Reuters.
"Tellingly, the legislature points to no instance of this class of firearms being used by even a single criminal in New Jersey," he said. "The wide scope of this total ban, therefore, will not further public safety, but only interfere with lawful recreational pastimes."
Lets apply this to North Carolina:
"Tellingly, the legislature points to no instance of voter fraud that could have been prevented by VoterID being used by even a single voter in North Carolina"
"The wide scope of this VoterID law, therefore, will not further voting integrity, but only interfere with lawful voting."
But for some reason we NEEDED that one!
