Chris Christie Takes NRA Position on Gun Control

I told you he wasn't your best friend. On the Today Show:

Christie was asked about specific gun control measures, and instead talked about violent video games. "We don't allow those games into our house...we think it desensitizes children to all the effects of violence," and added that all of the issues related to gun violence needed to be dealt with.

When pressed on why he couldn't answer whether he supports a ban on assault weapons, he said that it depends. "These are complicated issues," he said. "I'm willing to have that conversation."

For such a tough-taking maverick, it sure sounds like he's taking the NRA position: blame video games and mental health and leave guns alone.
