“Trivial.” That’s what New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called a common sense bill limiting ammunition magazines to ten rounds – a change we know would have saved more lives at Sandy Hook Elementary, possibly even the lives of our own children. Yesterday, Christie removed the provision from a gun violence prevention bill an hour after we delivered over 55,000 signatures to his office from supporters like you in favor of this crucial measure and after he repeatedly refused to meet with us.
