One of the few good things to come out of Chris Christie's quixotic quest for the presidency was his embrace of the Second Amendment. Earlier this month he issued an Executive Order relaxing gun permit and transport regulations. Because, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. And New Jersey issues fewer than 500 carry permits annually, mostly to retired law enforcement officers. Which didn't help domestic violence victim Carol Bowne, whose application for a firearms permit was held up by red tape, allowing her stalker ex-boyfriend to murder her in cold blood in her own driveway.
Well, as much as it sounds incongruous, State Senator Loretta Weinberg is OK with Bowne's murder. How else to explain her opposition to Christie's attempt to make it easier for women like Carol Bowne to legally carry a gun?
Top Democratic leaders in the state Legislature said Monday they are acting to block Gov. Chris Christie's effort to issue gun permits to anyone in New Jersey who can prove a "serious threat" against their life, saying the move oversteps state gun control laws.
Speaking at the Statehouse, state Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) assailed the newly relaxed regulations as expanding "the scope of the right-to-carry well beyond what is authorized under current law."
"To put it simply, if these regulations were adopted, it would allow every cab driver, pizza delivery driver, Uber driver and anyone else living or working in a high-crime neighborhood to qualify for a firearm permit," Weinberg said.
Woah. Loretta Weinberg only wants the criminals to have guns!
Hmm. The very definition of a "high-crime neighborhood" is where the bad guys have the upper hand. Meaning, they have guns, and we don't.
Seems to me that leveling the playing field ought to cut down on crime. And cutting down on crime is good, right?
Nope. Loretta Weinberg and the NJ Democrats would prefer that law-abiding NJ residents remain victims instead of standing up for our rights.
Because victims vote Democrat. Especially when they're dead.
