The citizen said, “Your executive actions closed down gun stores, saying they’re ‘non-essential.’ The poorest minorities living in the most dangerous cities with the highest crime rates now have absolutely no way of buying a firearm. I’ve lived in Newark, so I understand this first hand.”
He asked, “If less guns reduce crime, will you give up your personal bodyguards?”
The governor replied by intimating that he and the citizen had a philosophical difference in the role guns play, with the governor believing “a safer society has fewer guns, not more guns. And the guns that do exist are in the hands of the right people — particularly trained members of law enforcement.”
The governor then giggled, referenced an armed law enforcement member next to him, and said, “It is what it is.” Who are the right people according to Gov. Phil Murphy? He is one of them and the private citizen is not so no guns for private citizens. In addition Murphy’s arguments lack coherence and common sense. Either guns are good or not. That’s a philosophical fact. Guns cannot logically be good for some people but not for everyone else.. Felons are bad people by definition so felons cannot have guns. Murphy thinks everyone but him is a felon. Murphy needs a few classes in philosophy and logic. What the world really needs is the frenzied anti-freedom for the masses ramblings of an eccentric millionaire who has an unhealthy obsession with politics.
