Barbara Buono on Gun Control

 


Criticizes pressure from gun rights advocates

On gun control, Christie explained why he vetoed an outright ban on the powerful Barrett .50 caliber rifle, even though he initially proposed a ban on future purchases. He blamed Democrats for going back on their word during negotiations with him. "If they break a deal with me, then there's going to be ramifications," Christie said. "They didn't keep their word on this."

Buono said she believes Christie changed his mind after he received a letter from gun rights advocates in New Hampshire, the site of the nation's first presidential primary.

Restrict military grade and high capacity magazines

As a mother and state senator, Barbara has a long history of supporting tough gun safety laws in New Jersey. The Newtown school shooting and other recent tragedies have only strengthened her resolve to keep military grade and high capacity magazines out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. Unlike Governor Christie, who refuses to act, Barbara will step up and do what is right to reduce gun violence and keep our children safe.
