Awful… Chris Christie Slams NRA: “Reprehensible” For “Dragging People’s Children” Into Gun Debate (Video)

Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) slammed the NRA as “reprehensible” for “dragging people’s children” into gun debate.

This comes after the left mocked the NRA for proposing armed security at schools while at the same time sending their children to schools with armed guards. The NRA pointed this out in an ad. And, now Christie is attacking the NRA not the hypocrites on the left.


“I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” Christie said on Thursday at a news conference in Trenton. “I’m a father who is a public figure, who has four children and my children had no choice realistically in what I decided to do with my career and what affect that has had on their lives.”

“Don’t be dragging people’s children into this,” he added. “It’s wrong and I think it demeans them and it makes them less of a valid trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate.”

    As I have always said about this fat excuse for a pretend Conservative – Screw Off Christie.

  • Blane

    What a turn coat! Another Rino! Yuck. Call Japan another whale needs harvesting…

  • Hey Fatso, Obie has enough ass kissers. He doesn’t need you. So go eat a supermarket and STFU! Obama treats half this country like crap and yet so many of them can’t wait to run to his defense or to kiss his ass. I am SO EFFIN SICK OF IT!!!!!

    Christie will be the chosen one of the Republican elites.

    Time to get a new party on the ballot.

  • cavt

    I am sick of these fake republicans. Bad enough that the GOP is full of a ton of rino’s but then add people like Christie, Powell, etc–ugh. Why can’t these guys be honest and change party registration. They should call themselves blue dog dems and that way they can pretend at being conservative.

  • Amalgamated Cliff Divers, Local 157

    And the Pubs will make this clown their 2016 presidential nominee. Hilarious! I’m so glad I registered as an Independent. I learned my lesson when the Libertarian Party ran Republican retreads the past two presidential election cycles.
    Let’s face it, our country is hosed. $16+ trillion in debt, no budget, no tax or entitlement reform, a growing intrusive government with a useless media. We’re unwilling to face our problems, yet we criticize Greece, Italy, Spain, etc. Un-freaking-believable.

  • theBuckWheat

    The NRA raises a valid issue: that all citizens are equal and none should be more equal than any others. But all we have to do is notice how David Gregory blatantly broke DC law in front of millions of people and what a flimsy pass the DC officials gave him to know that we do indeed have Governing Elites. Clearly these people think the law is only for the little people.

    But the Second Amendment applies to all citizens, not just the Governing Elites. That is the point that the NRA was making.

  • mushroom

    Have a doughnut, Christie, especially if it will help you keep your mouth shut.

    Is he going to condemn Obama for dragging kids along as human shields yesterday?

    I guess that NRA ad cut a little too close to the bone by exposing the hypocritical attitudes of the governing aristocrat class.

    No one is suggesting Christie’s children should be denied security. We are simply asking for the same rights that our “public servants” have.

  • Never could stand the guy. This is not surprising, but I’m glad his true colors are showing mainstream. Him in 2016? Could care less. The GOP is ‘dead to me’ so to speak.

  • JGalt9

    Where’s his criticism of Obama for dragging children into his press conference?

  • Where’s the MF money Jon?

    Please, Governor, tell me how Obama’s kids are more important than mine. Tell me how yours are more important than mine. Please, tell me to my face. No armed bodyguards. Man to man. Tell me how the children of politicians are more sacred than the children of an average taxpayer.

  • mike191

    I am okay you are not .The new Mantra of you are what you eat,Christie ,hope of Coulter.

  • Hey Fatso, you need to switch parties. Ever since you sucked up to Obama after the Hurricane, you have acted like a fat ass liberal. As for the children, it was Obama who used them for his photo op. You can kiss your chances of ever getting a Presidential nomination from the GOP. As for your own children, I bet their not going to the local gun free zone school. And that bailout for hurrican sandy, you didn’t care how much pork was in it. But then from the looks of you I can tell you love pork.

  • mcashc

    Just like Roberts the commies either threatened or paid off the fat RINO. 60 years ago the soviets predicted this. It is here folks…………. they have their number 1 draft pick in place. The biggest fraud in the history of mankind and no one to stop it. Khrushchev you were right, the cancer started in the 20’s. It is terminal folks PC has won.

  • So, “Dragging people’s children” into the gun debate is a bad thing. Hmm…

    Has he discussed this pressing matter with Obama yet? Because I think there was something about the president having kids with him when he passed these executive orders.

  • dwdude

    that’s why we left n j years ago for a red state…even repuplicans act like democrats there. when christie embraced obama just before the election, that’s was the proof needed to brand him as a fraud. no one mentioned his children directly, but they did mention that obama didn’t consider other children as important. considering the death threats that the bush girls received, this was tame. it’s time for the gloves to come off and put obama on the defensive…arrogant putz.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Christie leans so center left that I expect him to formally switch parties before his next election… just like Charlie Christ did in Florida.

    Once you start drinking the Dem Koolaid, there’s little hope for you after that.

  • sablegsd

    I don’t care that he’s fat. I don’t like him because he is a regressive commiecrat. He also likes to suck muslim cocks. He’s an arrogant scum sucking waste of good donuts.

  • Patty

    Christie, Krauthammer could have been in the same room when they and others got together and decided to say the same thing.

    First of all the took the ad and look at it in the opposite way in which it was intended. Guards have been the NRA’s point from a week after Sandy Hook occurred, in American schools to deter maniacs who wish them harm.

    And Obama’s is president but his kids are NOT more precious then any other child. THAT WAS THE POINT AND OPINION OF NRA AD.

  • Exsanguine

    phuck you fat boy.

  • mg4us

    Then why the hell does Obama drag other people’s children onto the stage as props to hide behind. .it’s the jihadist way. . .

    Christie man up as a republican and not a democrat in drag!

  • workingclass artist

    My governor said Obama’s grandstanding expoitation of the Newtown tragedy was disgusting…Most conservatives in Texas feel that way.

    I find Christie’s outrage misplaced and disgusting….and very revealing.

    He will never win national office.

  • ice

    Christie came out in the past like a roaring lion. Then the Democrats admitted they were fearing Christie as a run for President so they started investigating his back ground. Shortly there after, Christie denounced his run for President and has become a quite mouse. What ever the Democrats found on him must be real exciting!!

    In the mean time, Christie can f-off. No matter how much back peddling we see from him in the future when he decides to act like a conservative, he will not be getting any support from me or my wallet. I guess ‘turn-coats’ come in size 4XXXX.

  • Pat

    Come on folks. He’s an R Governor in a deep blue state and the election is looming. The good news is he’s trading the Presidency for staying Governor.

  • lynno

    Alinsky back at them.

  • There is no criticism of the children themselves. Christie has set this up as a straw man. Obama’s kids are NOT be criticized. Only Obama’s elitism is under criticism here.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    This is just another example of why the Republi…er, the Stupid Party is in the condition it’s in.

  • AuntieMadder

    Isn’t it odd how Christie appeared to be truly conservative in 2011 and 2012 until it was clear that he was not a contender for the GOP ticket for POTUS, neither the top or second slot? That’s when he started drifting leftward. Finally, he threw his conservative mask off completely after his buddy and favorite Choom King was reelected to the White House.

    “I’m a father who is a public figure, who has four children and my children had no choice realistically in what I decided to do with my career and what affect that has had on their lives.”

    Yah, well, you had a choice with your career and should have taken into consideration what effect it would have on their lives……dumb*ss!!!

    I say we give Powell, Christie, etc to the libtards. We have enough Rions in this party. Until the Republicans can stand up to these libtards, I will not give them another cent. They may as well stop wasting money mailing me to donate. Ain’t gonna happen. Christie will never get the nomination for pres. fron republicans. If he does, he’ll never get enough of us to vote for him.
    If he worries about his kids because he’s a public figure, get out of politics. Many of us would encourage that.

  • donh

    REMEMBER…Chris Christie took a LOT of heat taking an expensive helicopter to his son’s little league baseball game….>

    So the NRA AD about corrupt politicians spoiling THEIR children with every power of state while OUR children are treated as disposable HITS HOME…….This is simply a man who is GOING DOWN and taking the family down with him like some loser father who shoots his wife and kids before putting the gun to his head..

    .Get a Tea Party guy in the DEMOCRAT primary…AND 3rd party as back up. .

  • Rock

    Funny Christie nor the Left makes mention of the fact that the school in question was reported to have armed security before WTF children showed up, or the fact that within hours of the tragedy that his new found BMF was walking in the still warm blood of the victims, to gather support for his attack on the 2nd.
    Question for Chris baby, where is your outrage over a Liberal rag mapping the homes of legal gun owners, you do know children live in those homes what about their rights not to be used as political fodder.

  • Campfollower

    I used to really like Christie for telling it like it is. I was concerned about his Muslim issue, but still liked him.

    After the election and this comment, he doesn’t have a chance in hell, even with the moderates. Not a chance.

    I’ve had a lifetime’s fill of Mr. Christie’s outrage.

    Its Obama draging kids into the debate. Its the other side pointing out the hypocracy.

    Go away christie.


    For the record, if this pipsqueaking ass becomes the nominee in 2016 (or any other year), I WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM.
    My comments on this turd have consistently been the same since he’s been a national figure, he is a liberal, a true RINO in every sense of the word. He’s a loud mouth, blow hard, ….. I’ll stop there and keep this clean.
    He aided Hussein in his re-election at the 11th hour for his own self-serving reason, turning on his so-called friend Mitt.
    And to think that he was a key note speaker ….
    He is a liberal scoundrel who conveniently ignores that his idol, barry, was more than happy to drag out a bunch of kids in his political theater event just yesterday.
    For the record, so no one accuses me of helping candidate _______ get elected, I’m declaring I WILL NEVER SUPPORT THIS SCUMBAG. If he becomes a nominee, then blame the party, not me.

  • RepoUSA

    Christie is the personifcation of the cancer in the GOP. I expect him to announce that he’s an independent or an outright democrat as soon as he runs out of ways to get attention. He’s a tool that Obama is using to divide the GOP. There is a big carrot, or doughnut, out there that Obama has promised him and he’s sold out. Or, the cholesterol is so thick in his veins that it cutting off blood to is brain.

    Sarah Palin’s Prediction in 2009: Watch for the Tie-In to Health Care and Gun Control

    Sarah Palin predicted what we have seen this week, the tie to health care and gun control, and she said it in 2009.

    This is what Governor Palin said on August 1, 2009:

    “And by the way… On health care issues going on in D.C. right now? Be wary when some kind of tie-in occurs; Because it will come up: A tie-in with guns in an attempt to take away our Second Amendment rights under the guise of some new health care plan – You know that this is coming – That the two issues will somehow crop up and they’ll be tied together. So we have to be very wary on this.” ~ Governor Sarah Palin, August 1, 2009 Anchorage, Alaska

  • What is Christie? Why did we like him so much in the first place?

    Is he brilliant?

    Is he smart?

    is he economically savvy?

    What is he to make him so popular?

    He was a loud mouthed, arrogant New Jersy-ian! And we know what New York as to say about them! (Hint, what New York eats and flushes ends up in New Jersey)

    When he was blasting critics on the Left he was fun, no more smarter or witty or intelligent, just fun to watch the verbal spray of sharp words mow down people who needed it.

    Now he is a politician looking to keep his job after the storm ripped away the lies of big government. Remember, most of those people who voted for him, believed BELIEVED that if you paid enough taxes government was going to be there to bail your “civilized” rear ends out of a crisis. When the lowly (and I’m from Florida so believe me, CAT1 is NOTHING) storm hit NJ it fell apart, the people fell apart, the government fell apart which means Christie’s chances of a dynasty fell apart.

    So he did what all of New Jersey people that I’ve met do- he blamed it on anyone else BUT himself.

    He’ll continue to complain and moan and wail, as it is their ilk. He is what he is, a loud mouth bully who managed a few minutes on stage because he wasn’t afraid to say what he thought, whether he was wrong or not.

  • Glenn47

    Well, I guess his true colors have come to light. At least it was before the next election.
    Kind of hypocritical to not mention Obama using those 4 little kids as his backdrop, that haven’t a clue as to what is really going on, but being used as spoke pieces for their parents. That should fall under child abuse.
    We have to start standing up, pushing back and exposing these self serving hypocrites.

    Pistol in Mexico is tied to ATF agent in Minn. gun sting

    [A semi-automatic pistol found near the scene of a gun battle in Mexico
    where five people died, including a Mexican beauty queen, has been
    traced to a former federal gun agent in Minnesota who was part of the
    government’s controversial Fast and Furious border gun-tracking


    Gillett played a central role in a similar Twin Cities gun sting a decade
    ago that was shut down after several government-tracked guns were
    connected to violent gang crimes. He later worked in Arizona and has
    offered himself as a witness in the Republican-led congressional probe
    of Operation Fast and Furious, which led to a U.S. House contempt vote
    in June against U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.]

    Well, after listening to Christie speak the past couple of weeks, I guess we all now know the price he has agreed to pay for the ‘Sandy’ money Barry is showering on NJ. Christie has been bought and paid for.

  • Pete

    Considering the fact that all the school shootings to date have been at schools (Columbine, Newtown, etc.) that were attended by NON-politically connected children, Christie’s argument for elitist’s children deserving more protection than “average” children is invalid. In fact, since there hasn’t been any attacks on schools that do have guards, it just tends to prove the argument for providing armed security personnel at all schools.

Will we never learn that northeast republicans are progressives and are not any better liberal dems when it comes to individual liberties.GOD help us all.

  • Christies true colors have been shown. Appointing muslim judges. Red flag. Gun control. Red flag. Kissing the treasonous,frauds butt. Red flag. Now that they have billions of dollars to stuff in their pockets for Hurricane Sandy. Red flag. Time to remove all these nazi germs. Replace with “Constitutional Representatives”.

    Christie is done, put a fork in him. It’s okay to use the death of other people’s children to push unconstitutional agendas, but ignore the hypocrisy of the President. Sorry, his use of other people’s dead children makes the ‘mention’ of his fair game. His children were not attacked personally. His school choice is.
