Chris Christie: Something Must Be Done™

Part of his speech today (video below):

We must be the grownups on this issue. This is not a time for grandstanding and this is not a time for politics. This is a time for an open conversation on how we realistically deal with a very complex issue. Only then can we change the dialogue... change the tone and change how we address this issue so that we can better protect and preserve the safety of the people we serve, which is the first and most important obligation in my view of government."
Now, what do you think is going to happen after a guy like Christie talks about it "not being a time for politics" and "changing how we address this issue"?

C'mon, you know. We're going to get a full-throated defense of our individual rights and liberties. We're going to get a forceful and direct challenge to media narratives and assumptions. We're going to hear data and statistics about cities with strict gun control laws versus those that allow for concealed carry. We'll hear the countless stories of firearms being used in self-defense, in many cases saving lives. We're going to hear how ineffective and useless previous legislation like the Assault Weapons Ban has been. We'll hear him criticize "gun free zones". We'll hear how silly "solutions" like magazine capacity limits and restrictions on cosmetic rifle accessories are.

In short: We're about to get our Constitution on!

Or, y'know, the exact opposite.

Rising star of the Republican Party. Rising star.

P.S. He trashed the NRA today.
