Christie Reiterates That NJ Gun Laws are Adequate

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has reiterated his stance that it would be wrong to discuss tougher gun control laws in the wake of the deadly shootings in Colorado.

Speaking Tuesday night on radio station NJ101.5's "Ask the Governor" show, Christie said politicians should be "keeping a respectful distance" for the time being so the Colorado victims' families can mourn their deaths.

The governor's on-air statements echoed those he made Monday during a Statehouse news conference, when he told reporters he was "disturbed" by politicians who he said were trying to "make political points" on the tragedy.

Several politicians — including New Jersey's two U.S. senators and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg — have renewed their calls for tighter gun control laws following the Colorado shooting.
