He's talking about stricter punishment of existing gun laws including illegal firearm sales. Limiting the amount of violence in video games. And actually trying to test some things out in figuring out the mental health part of the equation. These are all positions the gun control nazis are avoiding, but Christie gets it right, and I believe these are all things the NRA agrees with as well.
I understand that if you ban one gun, that sets up a slippery slope. But people are acting like all that's proposed when in fact this is one of the few proposals I've seen that actually claims that mental health and poor enforcement of existing laws are the root cause, not an average Joe who carries responsibly.
Not really wild about any politician's social experiment with taxpayer money that involves taking away what's currently legal. Especially when the proposer readily admits he has no clue if it will work or not.
