Christie supports gun-control efforts and assault-weapons ban

Screw you.  Just change your affiliation to Democratic and get it over with.

There he goes again.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday became the most prominent Republican to criticize the National Rifle Association — calling its advertisement referencing President Barack Obama’s daughters “reprehensible.”

“I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” Christie said at a news conference where he introduced a task force on guns and mental health.

Christie, facing re-election this year in heavily Democratic blue state New Jersey, appears to have made beating up on fellow Republicans and their supporters a central theme of his campaign.

The NRA’s ad called Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for not supporting armed guards at schools, even though his daughters receive armed protection at school.

Obama's children attend the Sidwell school, an elite private academy in Washington, DC. The school has approximately a dozen armed security guards.

Additionally, the President's children are protected by a Secret Service detail.

“Are the presidents’ kids more important than yours?” the ad’s narrator asks.

The NRA, based in Fairfax, Va., in the wake of the Newton shooting, called for putting armed security guards in all schools.
