    I am writing to as many states gun forums as I can find to plead with all freedom loving Americans to reject NJ Governor Christopher Christie and his anti-gun agenda . As a lifelong gun owning conservative free thinker it must be put out to the rest of the United States the truth about Gov Christie and guns.
    Currently NJ has the most restrictions on the second amendment in the country and Christie has not done one thing to correct the infringements on our rights and only "blames" everyone else for our plight. It's true he didn't create our problems but he has done nothing to fix it. The first action he could have taken would have been to appoint a constitutional conservative as our Attorney General but what does he do, He appoints a radical left wing anti-gun county prosecutor Paula Dow from Essex County the hub of most crime in NJ, Newark. This was for a political quid pro quo payback and this is what you can expect from him on everything.
    Currently we are awaiting him to veto a 10 round magazine limit that the anti-freedom NJ legislators recently passed, One has to wonder why didn't he veto it the second it hit his desk, he has until July 7th to veto it or it becomes law. and even if he does veto the bill he is only vetoing it because of his future political aspirations and not for constitutional reasons.
    Just the other day (this is a good one) a judge in Sussex County told a carry permit applicant when this judge denied his permit ( applicant owns a check cashing business) to "get another job or hire a security firm" this could have been avoided if Christie put a constitutionalist in as Attorney General. NJ is considered a "may issue" state yet one has to be a senator, congressman or politically elite to get one, in fact there are only about 1,100 issued statewide.

    Chris Christie throughout his political career has been anti gun and has operated in true "Soprano" NJ "MO" [http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2014/04/14/140414fa_fact_lizza?currentPage=all]
    As much as the true conservatives in NJ would love to see him out of this state as soon as possible and replaced with a constitutional conservative. Please pass the word about this fraud conservative and help keep him from being the republican challenger in 2016.

    NJ,

    Duly Noted!

    He would not get my vote anyway! He is too close to the mainstream corrupt politicians that are presently in power today. We need a "House Cleaning" in the USA regardless of party affiliation! Hope all will take your words of advice!;)

    Christie has a good record. I researched it. I'd say excellent, considering that politics is the art of the possible, and he has a very difficult state. The 10 end mag is one issue of many, and frankly symbolic compared to the total bans Christie has killed. Ann Coulter endorses him, and she is as strong a conservative as they get.

    The OP contains many passionate inaccuracies. Just to name one NJ is not the most anti 2A of all states. But if it were, Christies success would be more remarkable.

    If it comes down to Christie or Hillary, I'll take Christie in a heart beat.

    You guys can either stay home in protest or vote the Democrat funded (L) spoiler. Or you can vote for Hillary, the results will be the same.

    He's a left leaning republican from a deep blue state, adjust expectations accordingly.
    As for Ann Coulter's crush on him. Like most crushes, it wasn't entirely rational. I suspect much had to do with his rather direct & blunt manner. Heck, I will admit to liking that about him. That doesn't mean I agree with his position on firearms legislation, nor does in make him conservative.

    I grew up in NJ and my parents were definitely not pro-gun.
    NJ anti's are way more deep rooted than a single governor or legislator.
    I would love to see attitudes changed in the state and understand it will be one hell of a battle.
    Being brought up in a state(NJ) with attitudes of "why would you possibly need a gun".....to living in a state(WV) with attitudes of "why wouldn't you own (many) guns is a big but pleasant change...
    Good luck with the fight!

    Ann Coulter probably likes him due to his symbolic attacks on the public workers in NJ as well as their pensions and not for his views on guns, Mercator, could you please tell us a more anti-2A state than NJ, even in CA many are able to get Carry Permits depending on your location, in NJ all, yes ALL ordinary citizens are denied their constitutional rights. As a matter of fact possession of ALL firearms including BB guns are illegal in public unless you are traveling to a range or a place of repair that has registered with the state police, I think even Puerto Rico recently went shall issue. He has not done anything to correct this injustice. please go the links I included and read his history of corruption with Christie and go to NJgunforms.com to read NJ gun information. He will not do gun owners any favors if elected president so lets try to select a constitutionalist as the democratic challenger. "Chris Christie, The Democrats best kept secret!"

    The Brits make a good point of voting parties, not individuals. If we were to, a lot of internal bickering about who is the prettiest face would go away. The choice would be easier: them or us.

    DC and NY are the worst, per NRA. (I suspect NYC is a huge influence in your state, at least the NE part.) Coulter likes Christie for the reasons she explains best. If I were a Democrat operative, I would seriously consider funding your campaign, because it has a good chance to drain some votes away from the GOP and end up nowhere.

    Easier isn't necessarily better. Forcing people to use their brains instead of just going straight ticket is a better option.

    If the Brits had only two mainstream parties to pick from, they'd probably think differently. They have 3 to 5 "mainstream" parties (possibly more depending on how loose one's definition of mainstream gets) covering the political spectrum. This doesn't cover the Greens and the Irish special interest parties or the "Get Out of the EU Parties" or the hard core Socialists, the various Nationalists and so forth. Add to that, the UK is pretty much a Socialist nanny state. It has been for some time. Not exactly the example for a "gotta' have it" government style for Americans to copy, at least in my opinion.

    We have Democrats and Republicans. None of the third parties is ever a threat to claim anything resembling a majority, or even a large enough minority to really make a difference. Even if one is a "party man," odds are that one doesn't agree with a surprising number of positions on the party platform. For instance, I believe it's a safe bet that there are a significant number of democrat voters who aren't big fans of the abortion industry. Similarly, I would guess that there are a number of Union democrats who aren't really comfortable with the current party position on immigration.
    IMHO, the biggest problem with our current Republican party is their failure to establish a core position on much of anything. For a group purporting to be an opposition party to the Dems, they are awfully willing to negotiate on just about anything, including things many would consider non-negotiable. Gun rights? More often than ot they are OK. But you'd better keep an eye on them. Fiscally? Not usually quite as bad as the Dems. Taxation? They're willing to negotiate. Debt? Negotiable. Privacy/NSA spying? Can't really be certain anymore. Immigration? Can be hard to tell them from the democrats some days. Frankly Republicans only seem to oppose many big govt issues only when they aren't the majority party.

    I almost forgot to add i can remember almost 30 years ago having to drive to PA just to buy a BB gun!
    Being that neither my father nor I were hunters with a safety course it was illiegal to purchase even a red ryder...

    I know how some folks make statements such as, " if its between Christie and Hillary I'll take Christie" as for me I'm so tired of voting against one bad candidate to try and block them instead of voting for a good candidate. Back in the early 80's when I was old enough to vote I voted for the person who I thought was best, for the last 30+ years now I find myself voting against a candidate because of being forced to pick the lesser of two evils. I hope I can help persuade fellow gun owners/patriots across the country to pick a good challenger to the left rather than let the "party" rulers force a Christopher J Christie upon us. Cantor and Virgina should have been a wake up call for them.

    Actually CC has let it be known he thinks NJ (anti) guns laws are fine and he quietly supports them!:(
    That is why, if he were the GOP PC I would vote against him, PERIOD!!!:(

    As much as we would like to rid our state of this stench I feel it would be a guaranteed victory for 8 more years of what we have now and surely the United States will no longer exist by than.

    Rubio from Florida looks good, so far.

    The GOP needs to come up with a serious contender for POTUS in 2016.

    The last two losers were an embarrassment.

    You may be right.

    All the ladies whether GOP or not will be voting for Hillary.

    I don't see much appeal in Christie to anybody anymore.

    For me, if it were between Hillary and Christie, I would indeed choose Christie.

    But he probably would not win.
