NJ governor commutes sentence in gun case
Gov. Chris Christie has commuted the sentence of a man who was sentenced to seven years in prison after being found with guns he'd purchased legally in Colorado.

Twenty-seven-year-old Brian Aitken's case had become a cause celebre among gun-rights advocates.

In 2009, he muttered to his mother that life wasn't living, then left her home in Mount Laurel. She called police, who found two handguns in the trunk of his car.

He says he was in transit in a move to Hoboken which should exempt him from a weapon-registration laws.
