When term limits ended the reign of Chris Christie as governor of New Jersey, Democrat Phil Murphy ran a very heated campaign against Christie’s Lt. Gov. Murphy ran on a very strong anti-gun policy and campaign and won the vote of the people of the Garden State.

Murphy has plans on making New Jersey a model for other states on how to block or nullify gun lobbyists with the hiring of Bill Castner to be one of his new advisers. Castner lost his son at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He has been given the task and authority to not only end gun violence in New Jersey but to also stop and silence gun rights lobbyists.

(North Jersey) – Four months after 20 schoolchildren were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Bill Castner met with Mark Barden, who gave him a wristband and two photographs of his slain 7-year-old son. Although Castner had been deeply involved in gun violence issues before then, the meeting in Trenton “felt different,” he said.

“It was the type of incident that shocked the conscious,” Castner, in a recent interview, said about the school shooting, and he thought, “God almighty, why can’t we get together and do something differently?”

Many school massacres have passed since, with little action on the state and federal levels. And now Castner has the authority — and the mandate from Gov. Phil Murphy — to take as many different approaches as necessary in service of the administration’s goal to reduce gun violence and aggressively take on the powerful gun lobby…

We all feel for Castner for losing his young son in the terrible mass shooting but he has been blinded by anti-gun rhetoric to believe that gun control is the solution. He fails to understand the logic that if at least 2 teachers at Sandy Hook had been trained and armed that they could have stopped the shooting in progress and saved many young lives. Banning guns and making all schools gun free zones only places everyone’s kid(s) in danger of being the next victims.
