UNION BEACH – Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday he does not know yet if he will attend the Second Amendment Rally on Friday at the Statehouse.
"I haven’t made any decision,” he said, adding he hasn't seen his schedule yet. He said his Friday schedule is usually made by Wednesday night.
"I don't know. They give it to me one day at a time," he said. "So we'll see if I'm going to be there or not. So I don't know. I haven't made a decision about Friday yet."
The president of the N.J. Second Amendment Society had said in January that Christie would attend.
Society President Frank Fiamingo said he had talked to someone in the governor’s office who said that barring last-minute conflicts, Christie would attend.
Fiamingo said that prior to that, he had personally spoken to Christie and that he had expressed a desire to attend.
But after that account appeared, the governor’s office vehemently denied that Christie had made any commitment to attend.
The rally is one of several being held nationally that day.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
