Despite “explosive” stories being covered in national media these days, one that might be defined as such has been overlooked. As a public service, we’d like to bring you up-to-date on a news item that may soon “go off.”
In one state, a governor has adjusted his list of official priorities for legislative action and submitted an amended version. The update is apparently based on recent events in our society. Here’s the revised set of initiatives he’s asking for. In law.
** Background checks for ALL gun purchases. ALL.
** Parental consent – IN WRITING – for minors wanting to buy violent video games.
** A TOTAL BAN on purchases of the .50-caliber Barrett rifle.
** Legislation to make it easier for doctors and courts to commit “potentially dangerous” people to mental health treatment – EVEN AGAINST THEIR WILL.
The state is New Jersey. The governor is Chris Christie. A Republican. He’s running for re-election in 2014.
