Democratic gubernatorial challenger state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) used New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State Address as a jumping off point to criticize Gov. Chris Christie for failing to talk about the issue of gun control in his own Statehouse oratory yesterday.
"Gov. Cuomo demonstrated the ability to focus on New York's recovery from Hurricane Sandy while also working to create jobs for middle class families and fighting to take guns off the streets," Buono said.
On the Today Show this morning, Christie said he wanted to have a "conversation" about gun control, but refused to offer any policy hard points on the subject.
"Today, I am calling on Governor Christie to join the fight for gun control and take a stand against those same right wing Republican interest groups that would help him pursue his national ambitions," said the gubernatorial candidate. "The destructive influence of gun violence continues to impact all New Jerseyans and we are long past due to confront the problem."

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
