Gov. Chris Christie today vetoed a gun control bill that would have reduced the permitted size of ammunition magazines, saying it would do nothing to reduce gun violence.
“This is the very embodiment of reform in name only. It simply defies common sense to believe that imposing a new and entirely arbitrary number of bullets that can be lawfully loaded into a firearm will somehow eradicate, or even reduce, future instances of mass violence,” Christie said. “Nor is it sufficient to claim that a ten-round capacity might spare an eleventh victim.”
Everything he said is wrong. As inanimate objects go, there's nothing more evil and destructive than high-capacity magazines. Lanza would have had to change magazines 15 times instead of only 5. Loughner killed someone with the 13th round. Nevertheless, lying gun-rights fanatics insist the magazine size makes no difference. And now we know for sure which side Gov. Christie is on.
