We knew there was a reason other than he turned into a giant bowl of useless Jello after the GOP primary that we didn’t like Chris Christie.
Check this crap out.
On his last day in office, NJ Gov. Chris Christie signs bill banning possession of bump stock devices like the one used in the Vegas massacre; owners have 90 days to surrender them to police: https://t.co/cXfmUCwn1v

It’s now illegal in New Jersey to sell or possess a “bump stock,” the controversial firearm accessory allegedly used by the gunman in last year’s Las Vegas massacre.
Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican set to leave office Tuesday, signed a Democratic-sponsored bill Monday outlawing the devices, which can be affixed to semiautomatic rifles to allow them to fire bullets, mimicking automatic weapons.
Christie — who took action on more than 150 bills on his final full day in office — made no statement on the legislation (S3477/A5200), which takes effect immediately.
Anyone who owns a bump stock or “trigger crank” now has 90 days — until April 15 — to surrender the accessories to law enforcement authorities. Retailers who sell them have 30 days.
Don’t let the door hit ya’ where the good Lord split ya’, Christie.
Whatever you think of bump stocks, the term for what is happening here is “confiscation” https://t.co/ykGVp9Zldv

Confiscation, as in surrendering your guns to the government.
Not to mention this is a direct violation of the Second Amendment.
But you be you, Christie.
Last day in office. So brave of him

Convenient and cowardly.
I find use of the term 'bump stocks' racist as it connotes negative feelings towards those who invest in the Stock Market.

We see what he did here.
Oh goodness. Are they going to outlaw just doing it with your finger?

Don’t worry, they just want to confiscate the guns that go ‘pew pew pew.’
I would send mine to an out of state friend or family member, if I had such a device. I wouldn’t risk damaging such a fine weapon with one, but I wouldn’t surrender it to the government, either.

Wow, we really dodged a bullet with this guy.
