While New Jersey Governor Murphy and his family are spending their Christmas vacation in Tanzania his Facebook and Twitter feeds were very active Thursday. Murphy’s accounts sent out a series of posts touting his first year “accomplishments”. I don’t believe most New Jerseyans consider any part of Murphy’s agenda “accomplishments”. Murphy’s vision continues to be wrong for New Jersey. Expect Murphy to double down in 2019 including pushing for “legalized” marijuana, a $15 minimum wage and driver licenses for illegal immigrants. Also expect New Jersey to begin to resemble Detroit as Murphy pushes the revenue generators, job creators and law abiding citizens of the state.
At a Speedway gas station in Edison a store attendant was shot and killed during a robbery early this morning. The 38 year old attendant handed over the cash draw and the suspect fired a single shot killing the attendant as he exited the store. There was another employee in the store who was not injured. This incident further demonstrates that New Jersey’s gun laws are misguided.
