    1. It all depends on how much Chris Christie wants to run for national office. Christie’s veto might earn him some admiration among conservatives nationally but his signature on any but the most innocuous of these bills will kill any presidential ambitions.

      1. I rather doubt that he’s planning to run nationally as a Republican. That bridge is already in flames.

  1. Technically there’s always been a 7-day waiting period for handguns, but it currently starts the clock when you hand in your application for a Permit to Purchase.
