lol at the opening line, it already is!
Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday rejected legislation to increase the sales of smart guns, saying the measure would make the state "inhospitable" to legal gun ownership.
Christie, a Republican, conditionally vetoed the measure that would have required state gun retailers to keep an inventory of smart guns, which can be fired only by authorized users. He sharply criticized the Democrat-led Legislature, which sent him the bill for the second time this year in June. He had previously pocket-vetoed the measure.
"This bill is reflective of the relentless campaign by the Democratic legislature to make New Jersey as inhospitable as possible to lawful gun ownership and sales, and I refuse to allow that to happen," Christie said.
Democrats said Christie's veto amounted to an attempt to "pander" to out-of-state pro-gun groups.
"The Governor's conditional veto is proof that he is out of touch with the overriding sentiments of New Jersey residents, the majority of whom support gun safety," Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald said in a statement.
