Following his remarks at the Red State Gathering Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, was confronted by Second Amendment activists demanding to know why he has not thrown out the charges against a North Carolina man who was found with a firearm by New Jersey police.
Christie was hurried off stage when he decided against talking to reporters en masse that is covering the Red State event and spent most of his remaining time there hiding from the media.
During his speech to attendees, activists from the organization known as Georgia Gun Owners passed out a flyer describing Christie as being anti-gun to the press and attendees.
Patrick Parsons of Georgia Gun Owners, along with another individual, attempted to ask Christie about North Carolina man Brian Fletcher, a man who is facing five to ten years in a New Jersey prison for bringing an unlicensed pistol into the state.
“We handed out flyers showing basically 20 years of Christie’s anti-gun history and then as he just ran from us. There is a gun owner from North Carolina named Brian Fletcher. Brian Fletcher works on power lines. He was called up to New Jersey in the middle of the night to work on a disaster,” Parsons told The Daily Caller after he said that organizers threw him out of the hotel.
