(PIX11) — Governor Chris Christie signed 10 bills into law in New Jersey on Thursday.  

One makes it illegal to sell a gun to a person on the federal terrorist watch list.

Critics say much like the “no-fly list”, this may include people put there by mistake or coincidence.

The other bill Christie signed requires certain mental health records be submitted to the instant background check system.

The governor has not signed the proposed 50-caliber rifle ban.
