The Morning Buzz | Gov. Chris Christie to Push for Expanded Background Checks

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is seeking expanded background checks for gun purchases and parental consent laws for minors to buy video games. Christie, a Republican, is up for reelection in Democratic-leaning New Jersey, but has also been considered a contender for the 2016 Republican nomination. The move has benefits in the short-term, but consequences in the long-term: Christie’s actions are likely to help him among Democrats, but not among Republicans.
