In a blockbuster announcement today, Governor Christie conditionally vetoed two pieces of anti-gun legislation (A3689 and S816), imposing dramatic conditions that would change them into pro-gun measures establishing shall-issue right-to-carry and repealing New Jersey’s 2002 “smart gun” law mandate with no strings attached.
The “conditional veto” procedure allows the governor to reject legislation that reaches his desk and propose a re-written version to the legislature. If the legislature concurs in the conditions imposed by the governor, then the measure as re-written becomes law immediately. Otherwise, the legislation dies.
First, good for him and good for the citizens of New Jersey.
Well, this makes sense. First, Christie stays in the race long after it was clear that he couldn’t win and spent his time attacking anyone who threatened Trump. Now, after Trump gets eviscerated at the last debate, Christie steps in to draw the media’s eye away. Clearly, Christie is acting as Trump’s ally.
New Jersey governor and former Republican candidate Chris Christie is endorsing frontrunner Donald Trump for president, he has announced.
Mr Christie dropped out of the 2016 presidential race after a lacklustre showing in polls and state races.
