Last Friday, New Jersey Rep.

The purchase of thousands of fully automatic rifles for he DHS should also be explained.


Note that these are described as “personal defense weapons”, while less lethal weapons in the hands of US citizens are described as “assault rifles”. He made this statement at the Morristown Tea Party 4th anniversary gathering, Friday, March 16th at the Whippany, NJ VFW.
