The family of late Sen. Frank Lautenberg has endorsed Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone to fill the seat left vacant by the former New Jersey lawmaker's death last month.

Right now, Trenton, N.J., lawmakers have served up the main dish of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and I'm very afraid gun owners could end up playing the role of the governor's napkin. Mr. Christie appointed Jeffrey Chiesa, a Republican, to the U.S. Senate. This is bad news for gun owners because he will serve for about four months — an extraordinarily crucial time for your Second Amendment rights in the Senate. With Mr. Christie's buddy, President Obama, bent on resurrecting his anti-gun crusade in the coming weeks or months, Mr. Chiesa may be the key to victory or defeat for your right to keep and bear arms.
