You thought you had it bad in Illinois?
What’s the above gun worth?
Well, Chris Christie’s New Jersey wants ten years in prison from a 72-year-old retired teacher of 34-years. Why? Because the man had the audacity to buy a 300-year-old flintlock pistol to go with his collection of 17th Century history.
What’s even better?
The local prosecutors say they will conduct ballistic tests on the pistol.
Because, you know, it might have been used in a string of 7-11 robberies, right? You just never know.
This isn’t about crime control. This is about intimidating law-abiding citizens to forgo their Constitutional rights. This is about tyrannical, Democrat-controlled government run amok.
Hello Chris Christie: You wanna be president? Here’s YET ANOTHER case you need to intercede with where local prosecutors apparently have no bad guys to prosecute besides retired teachers who collect relics.
