Christie, for example, appeared on CBS This Morning on Wednesday suggesting that the government isn’t doing enough about gun control.

Yeah, he mentioned it in the context of focusing not only on “gun control,” but adding preventive steps like mental health screenings, but he’s not stupid.

Mental health screenings are gun control. 

That’s what the NRA says and they are right.  

The “comprehensive approach,” which Christie advocates, is the “government approach,” which conservatives dread.

Christie seems to take a comprehensive approach to everything especially talking.

So, someone needs to remind Christie that he’s not Governor of the United States.

He’s from Jersey for crying out loud. It’s like a perpetual off-ramp on the way to somewhere else.

It’s a place where Jon Corzine was elected governor.

And while that’s not a very fair comparison for Christie, I’ll at least say this much in his defense: Christie makes a much better Democrat governor from New Jersey than Corzine ever did.

Look at how far it got Jiffy Jon.    

We can only hope Christie will do as well.
