This exchange at a town hall meeting inside a community college auto shop in Ankeny, Iowa this past Saturday shows Chris Christie being, well, Chris Christie. And wow. Holy short fuse.
A dude stood up and said, “State gun rights groups from here in Iowa, Minnesota and even to Georgia have sent out some emails recently saying that you’re very anti-gun when it comes to the Second Amendment. So, my question is, How are you going to ‘New Jersey’ gun owners into thinking that you’ll be anything other than a ‘President Michael Bloomberg,’ if you become successful?”
It's a legit question – perhaps phrased a little weird, but legit, nonetheless.
Now keep in mind that this isn't even a debate. Or an actual crisis. It's a town hall, for crying out loud. And just a question from a dude in the audience.
I want to love the passion here, but I'm not going to lie – I found myself feeling a little concerned about Christie and found the Mom in me saying, "alright…everyone just CALM DOWN."
That can't be good.
