Chris Christie making his point.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie explained his logic in vetoing a bill last week that would have limited the size of gun magazines, saying that “every life is valuable.”
“Are we saying that the 10 children on the clip they advocate for, that their lives are less valuable?” he said at an event Monday, according to a video posted on his Youtube page. “If you take the logical conclusion of their argument, you go to zero because every life is valuable. And so why 10? Why not six, six? Why not two? Why not one? Why not zero? Why not just ban guns completely?”
The potential GOP presidential contender in 2016 vetoed a gun reform bill that would have reduced magazine capacity from 15 rounds to 10 rounds. Christie, who on Monday emphasized his opposition to “wanton gun violence,” said he simply thought the bill would have been ineffective in accomplishing its goal.
