The administration of Gov. Chris Christie denied a report that the Governor plans to speak next month at a 2nd Amendment rally in Trenton.
Christie spokesman Mike Drewniak said that while the governor has been invited, he has not confirmed attendance.
"The Governor receives hundreds of speaking requests, all of which are considered in the normal course of scheduling," Drewniak said. "This was not a confirmed scheduling request."
NJ2AS President Frank Fiamingo told PolitickerNJ.com Saturday that he had invited the Governor personally.
"We met with the governor in his outer office, and I told him I hold the permits for a rally in Trenton next month and we'd love to have him speak," Fiamingo said. "He told me barring any conflicts he'd love to speak. I called his office and I was told that we can put him on our schedule and barring any conflict he'll be there."
The rally is scheduled for Feb. 8 at the Statehouse, one of several that will take place around the country that day. Fiamingo announced Christie's attendance in an email to 2nd Amendment society members.
Christie this week slammed a National Rifle Association advertisement comparing Secret Service protection for the President's daughters to the gun owners association's proposal to put armed guards in schools.
“I’m a father who’s a public figure, who has four children, and my children had no choice, realistically, in what I decided to do with my career and what effects that’s had in their lives in making them somewhat public figures and making them subject to protection from the executive protection unit,” Christie said.
Contacted Saturday night regarding the Ammoland.com report that Christie would attend the rally, the administration did not respond for comment.
