Christie’s Gun Control Hypocrisy

In the aftermath of the Aurora tragedy, Governor Christie chided Mayor Bloomberg and others for making gun control a political issue. Yet, on the same issue, Christie is the epitome of hypocrisy. At a taxpayer-funded political rally in November 2010, Christie was asked by an NRA member whether the governor supports a “concealed carry” law. We never got an answer. Instead, the governor told the audience that if they support lax gun laws, they should vote for Republicans. Christie himself straddled the fence on the issue so as not to infuriate one side or another. Given his charge to the audience to vote Republican now and find out his position on the issue later, his criticism of Bloomberg rings hollow.
