Chris Christie responds to gun control critics

Tue, 07/08/2014 - 04:00
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie explained his logic in vetoing a bill last week that would have limited the size of gun magazines, saying that “every life is valuable.” “Are we saying that the 10 children on the clip they advocate for, that their lives are less valuable?” he said at an event Monday, according to a video posted on his Youtube page. “If you take the logical conclusion of their argument, you go to zero because every life is valuable. And so why 10? Why not six, six? Why not two? Why not one? Why not zero? Why not just ban guns completely?”
