The New Jersey gun grab looks to be on in full after outgoing governor Chris Christie made some desperate, last minute moves, but now that his successor is looking to add fuel to the fire.

Christie, a failed republican candidate for President who has been consistently lambasted for his poor decisions and big-government trappings, spent the last few hours of his governorship hurriedly banning bump stocks in the state of New Jersey – a cowardly bit of timing for a republican whose transitioning to domestic life in a blue state.

Now there is more bad news on the horizon for New Jersey gun owners, as incoming Governor Phil Murphy, a democrat, is looking to expand on Christie’s gun grabbing nonsense right away.

“Newly installed New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) is following up on Chris Christie’s (R) bump stock ban by pushing a sales tax on gun sales and a mandatory firearm safety training requirement for gun owners.

“The sales tax will be one be factor making gun ownership cost prohibitive for poorer New Jersey residents and the mandatory training requirement will be one more mechanism by which a government regulates a right that ‘shall not be infringed.’

“Newsweek reports that both gun controls are at the top of Murphy’s to-do list, as is a new gun control expanding regulations on the transfer of firearms. (Such regulations not only increase government oversight of the exercise of the Second Amendment but also enhance the paper trail on firearms, thereby providing bureaucrats and government officials with a better idea of the names of law-abiding citizens who own guns and the location at which those guns are kept.)”

This nonsensical and likely unconstitutional fight against the 2nd Amendment has been ongoing in the Garden State for decades, and only looks to be accelerating as Christie’s supposedly republican administration gives way to the liberal ethos of Murphy.

How will New Jersey gun owners respond to these continued attacks on their right to bear arms?  Only time will tell, but America’s current conservative awakening will certainly complicate matters for Murphy going forward.
