ICYMI: Gov. Christie Had No Problems Signing A Bill That Could Potentially Deprive Americans Of Their Second Amendment Rights

Christie has stated previously he has no problems with the Obama administration’s initiative of banning Americans on terror watch lists from buying guns, despite that fact that these people have never been convicted of any crime related to such heinous charges. The reason: he already signed into law a similar piece of legislation back in 2013. Granted, this law is only in effect in New Jersey, but Christie showed he has no regrets over signing the bill. As you already know, being convicted of a crime is necessary in order for Americans’ rights to be stripped, specifically (depending on the charge) the right to vote and own firearms. Such a process is nonexistent for Americans, of which there are probably around 10,000, who have their names on such lists.

In a meeting with The Des Moines Register, the New Jersey governor admitted that there are problems with due process relating to getting one’s name off the terror watch list, let alone finding out if you have been added to it. Yet, even knowing the lack of due process inherent within this Bush-era anti-terror policy, Christie says he doesn’t regret signing it into law in New Jersey. The weird part is that the governor seems to know the problem. He also knows that the solution–getting one’s name off the list–is not possible at present without due process.
