Gov. Christie calls NRA ad 'reprehensible'

Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey skewered the National Rifle Association Thursday for referencing the president's children in a political attack commercial.

Speaking in a press conference, the outspoken governor decried the move as "reprehensible" and argued the group lost some credibility by making the ad.

    reflecting sadly on the state of this nation, it took massacre of children, though innocent lives were being sacrificed on the altar of our craziness on a scarily repeated basis – in gun violence, to wake up.

      that is what I said to many earlier on facebook. Why did it take kids to get killed for Americans to be so upset when these incidents happened twice before this year and then we had VT ..... This whole guns and its my right so I want to have what I want isnt working. You can have a gun sure, but pass the mental health checks and background checks and better regulated registry. it wont solve the whole problem but it is a start that is better than doing nothing or adding more guns in schools by arming teachers!!

    Hope Pr.Obama stands unwavering in his resolve. Those opposing him in Congress and society are the threat.

      Emperor Palpatine said the same thing. My favorite line from that movie is " So that's how democracy dies, with thunderous applause." because it makes me think of idiots like you.

    If you believe the official Sandy Hook story, then you understand why it is that men on meds should never be allowed to legally own a gun, and why no child on meds should have access to a gun kept by his parents in the home.

    Catch 22. No matter hwat you believe...the official story says men and boys on meds are the mass murderers, while the evidence shows it all to be a distration from President Obama signing something Bush wouldn:t...the US Congress National Defense Authorisation Act into law, authorizing US troops to kill susoected gang banger terrorusts on US soil just as suspected terrorists are killed by US TROOPS w/YOUR approval in foreign lands.

      Please provide evidence that this is the intended use of the President's signature. Otherwise, you are just projecting.

    I agree something happened to Christie! It is incredible to see the turn around, incredible. This man seems to be the most leveled headed of them all. He seemed to be able to be truly bi-partisan. I think the Obama charisma and Christie being able to hang out with the "cool guy at school" has overtaken his sensibility. I hear nothing of the man I admired. He has become a "stepford" Obamaphile. When the "kool-aid" is gone, eyes will opened. Only a few in Washington are worth their pay. Like The Godfather .... it keeps sucking back ....

      Your post seems conflicting to me...are you praising or condeming Christie for being truly bi-partisan?

    *Presidents. (plural)
    We will have a future president who is a man or woman of science. One who will NOT base US foreign policy on the religuous theory that Israelis are somehow "gods" chosen nation, and that "hell" is a place where American citizens feel being burned alive forever. (yes, tthere are those who still believe in this conspiracy theory)

    It shouldn't be necessary to establish this, but I feel that it is: I am a liberal Democrat, and heartily support gun control. I find it incredibly difficult to get any traction in a conversation with gun lobbyists given the bizarre reporting on Sandy Hook. I understand that reporting is plagued with obstacles (I work in media), but having just reviewed CNN footage of SWAT storming Sandy Hook–and finding without question the footage is actually of St. Rose of Lima school–I don't have any leg to stand on at the moment when debating with my pro-gun colleagues. I come from a military family, with many gun enthusiasts. It will not be "truthers" that sink gun control, but whoever is trying so desperately to co-opt the story to gun control's advantage that they are willing to twist facts along the way, thwarting any possible progress, in my opinion.
