New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie signed 10 pieces of gun legislation into law Thursday.
Christie, widely seen as a probable GOP candidate for president in 2016, signed off on the slate of bills, most of which were non-controversial, while leaving five more contentious bills still awaiting his signature or veto.
One of the new laws will disqualify any person on the federal terrorist watch list from obtaining firearms identification cards or permits to purchase handguns.
“To the extent that this bill will keep guns out of the hands of known terrorists, or those who have taken active steps to support terrorist activities, my signature on this bill represents my commitment to keeping the citizens of New Jersey safe,” Christie said in a signing statement. “Our diligence against terrorism must never fade.”
One bill passed by the state Senate, S.2737, would institute background checks for all private gun sales and require all prospective gun owners to attend a gun safety training class.
Another would ban a model of .50 caliber rifle, the most powerful rifle available to civilians.

So when Rep.Gov Chris Christie signs stricter gun laws
it's simply called "Gun Bill", and "not controversial", by conservatives.
So not Anti-Gun, Gun Control legislation , or Non-Constitutional ?
That's amazing. How does he do that?
Is he running for something?
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) admitted he "wasn't ready" to run for president in 2012, but he thinks 2016 could be a different story.
"I wasn't ready to run for President this time," Christie said in an interview with Steve Adubato for the show "Conversations at NJPAC." "If [a 2016 presidential run] comes, I know that I will be more ready for it than I would have been this year."
A Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll released Tuesday showed Christie is the most favored among likely Republican candidates for the 2016 presidential nomination. The governor's approval rating soared after his handling of the damages from Hurricane Sandy.

Criminals by definition do not follow the law.
All these restrictions do is keep them out of law abiding citizens hands, so you must ask yourself WHY does the government want you helpless?
