This week on the Informed Conservative we talked about former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik calling out Governor Murphy over the high capacity magazine ban, Immigrant rights advocates demonstrating in Trenton for driver licenses for undocumented illegal immigrants, Cory Booker again being asked about his sexuality, ICE having a productive year despite Liberal opposition, Murphy highlighting his “accomplishments” in 2018, NJ Democrats censuring one of their own, the shooting in Edison being another example of NJ’s misguided gun laws, we pleaded with the people of Tanzania to keep Murphy and make him their leader and let you know how the partial government shutdown will impact us in NJ.
Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik took to Twitter before appearing on Fox & Friends on Sunday calling out New Jersey Governor Murphy for not excluding off duty police officers from his high capacity magazine ban. Kerik said in the Tweet ““NJ Governor @GovMurphy is endangering the life of every off duty NJ cop! Gang bangers, drug thugs and really bad guys don’t give a damn about magazine capacity. So he takes the good guy’s ammunition, and the bad guys are loaded for bear!” As we reported on Saturday the law does not make an exception for off duty law enforcement officers. According to a memorandum from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office to ranking law enforcement officers in Bergen County law enforcement officers in New Jersey must comply with the new large capacity magazine ban unless on duty. The memorandum states that law enforcement officers are not permitted to possess large capacity ammunition magazines unless while on duty or traveling to or from an authorized place of duty. Violators, including off duty police officers, can be found guilty of a crime of the 4th degree and face 18 months in jail and a $10,000 fine.
It was another busy week in New Jersey and around the country as we discussed the border crisis, Obamacare registration numbers being down this year, corruption in Atlantic City, New Jersey subsidizing the horse racing industry, Christ Christie being considered as President Trump’s Chief of Staff, the high capacity magazine ban in New Jersey and Obamacare being rule unconstitutional by a Federal Judge.
