Gov. Chris Christie has been mum for months on whether he’d sign a controversial gun-control bill that would reduce the size of ammunition magazines.
Check it out:
That didn’t change Tuesday.
A day after the state Senate passed the measure — which would cut the permitted capacity of magazines from 15 to 10 rounds — Christie said he still hasn’t decided what he’d do should it also pass the state Assembly.
“I can’t tell you what I’m going to do with the bill until that bill hits my desk,” the Republican governor said on his monthly radio show on 101.5-FM. “I am not going to prejudge anything that they may change into something that may be something I might consider differently than what my initial inclination might be.”
The bill would make gun laws in New Jersey — already the second tightest in the U.S. — even more stringent. The measure was introduced in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. Families of the victims have visited Trenton twice to lobby for its passage.
