As of earlier today, Yahoo news has printed an article about Mitt Romney and his views on gun control. Romney was seen pandering to the right's base as an advocate for the right to bear arms. I believe that this should be thrown out the window.

Romney on Gun Control

The following article follows the trail of Romney as Massachusett's governor. In 2004 he signed a bill banning the sale of all assault rifles in the state.




Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new law ensures these deadly weapons, including AK-47s, UZIs and Mac-10 rifles, are permanently prohibited in Massachusetts no matter what happens on the federal level.

“We are pleased to mark an important victory in the fight against crime,” said Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey. “The most important job of state government is ensuring public safety. Governor Romney and I are determined to do whatever it takes to stop the flood of dangerous weapons into our cities and towns and to make Massachusetts safer for law-abiding citizens.”

The new law also makes a number of improvements to the current gun licensing system, including: Extending the term of a firearm identification card and a license to carry firearms from four years to six years; Granting a 90-day grace period for holders of firearm identification cards and licenses to carry who have applied for renewal; and
Creating a seven-member Firearm License Review Board to review firearm license applications that have been denied.


Please don't let your hate for Obama cloud your judgment of this man. He is Obama in a different shell. That is it.

I just heard a clip of him giving his disingenuous little speech about gun rights at the NRA convention today on the radio.

The man is like Clinton on guns.

His best defense for his actions as governor is to say "it was the will of the people." Sorry, but when liberty is the price the "will of the people" is simply tyranny.

Romney is just another authoritarin tyrant. He's an Obama with a little more "white" on him.

Couldn't have said it better. If, on the other hand, you are in support of gun control; Romney is definitely your man. Socialists rejoice.

I believe that Romney is MUCH more of a threat to our 2nd Amendment rights than Obama. Just because he belongs to the "R" party, that CERTAINLY doesnt mean that he is "gun-friendly" by any means. Northeast "Republicans" are very much AGAINST firearms and the 2nd Amendment.

Dont let that "R" after his name fool you folks. This character is just as much, if not MORE of a "liberal" in reality than Obama.


The "fanatical-right" is getting "played" badly by this character!
You all ALREADY lost this election... to two "LIBERALS"!


Should've [color=gold]voted for RON PAUL you silly CONservatives and Right-wingers!

I wonder if I hit him with a brick in a sock.. and discovered that most anything can be a weapon.. would be regulate socks and bricks? I dont need an assault rifle.. I have what I need for what I do. I dont know what anyone would want an assault rifle for ,but its their right to buy it if they have the bucks. Too bad we will all have the hardware/guns.. but no ammo to go with it if things keep up as they have been heading.


ANYWAY.. who cares, he's a dope. Theyre all dopes, Obama to Romney and all in between. Im old, cranky,and really cant stand ANY of the candidates. Flush em all.

In reality, I dont believe that we have any power as a people in elections anyway, the holy college on the mount decides who we get.This televised junk and all of this campaigning is all bunk.. like a televised bs spouting contest.

I was a little disturbed that he's enrolled his three year old daughter in the NRA. Maybe I'm just a bit too left-leaning, but I don't see any reason why you would want a child in an organization designed for adults.

Unless children are "voting members" -- and then, frankly, it gets weird.

Personally, I don't believe a three year old should be allowed to join a church. That said, it happens daily. Brainwashing happens to be a very effective tool.

I keep hearing how Obama is the greatest "firearm salesman" ever. Well, if Romney gets in, he will make "firearm salesman" of the month EVERY month over Obama...

Politicians from the Northeast are all firearm hating weasels. Even the most "right-wing" or "pro-gun" claiming politician from the Northeast is a TRAITOR to our 2nd-Amendment right. Any of them in office will make Obama look completely PRO-firearm.

"Firearm salesman" Obama has met his match on gun sales if this "fake" gets in...

That is a good program. I started shooting when I was 4. My father wanted me to shoot a shotgun at that age so I would be terrified and understand the devastation that firearms can cause. It worked and I practice very safe shooting habits because of that. Kids that get killed by firearms usually have parents that don't care, unfortunately.

It's a GREAT program brother, me being "4 Rules" Safety brainwashed by The Marine Corps, I'm OCD when it comes to firearms safety. I've got a 4 and 14 year old in the house , they've both been taught at an early age the 4 rules & I don't even allow the 4 year old to point his toy guns at people.

I dropped decent coin on a safe to make sure even if they got a wild hair they wouldn't be able to access the weapons , on the flipside, anytime they ask about the guns or get curious I'll bring out what they ask me to and have question and answer time. I've explained to them that they're simply tools, that way they aren't mystified by them.

My father was (and still is) a LEO, so I've grown up around firearms my whole life, he was the same way with me that I am with my kids and I thank him for that.

This. The majority of kids/teens who use weapons against others were either not taught the proper safety procedures, or just plain had parents that didn't care. When I was 14, I owned my own 9mm Glock, bought and paid for by me with my Fathers permission & a Fake ID (He was at his limit in owned firearms). In my neighborhood, you had to carry if you planned on walking anywhere. Southeast Houston, for anyone who can remember what it was like in the late 90's. I learned then the value of protection and defense, and i'll be DAMNED if anyone will ever take away that security from me. I'm of a mind to spread a Non-Voting stance this year. What would they do if the american people just plain didn't vote? Anyone they put in office would be breaking the constitution, as they were not elected by the people.

I've known it since the '08 primaries and its the reason I didn't support him then and won't vote for him now. He's a bigger threat to our 2nd amendment rights than Obama. Why? Because the congressional GOP would very likely be very strongly opposed to any gun restricting law that Obama tries to cram down our throats, if for no other reason than political expediency.

That strong resistance from the congressional GOP will NOT happen if Romney is elected and it would very likely pass.

I am of the belief that they are going to put whoever they want in office. We the people don't have to vote, it's done for us. It sounds crazy but I am studying computer programming right now and from the looks of it, it isn't hard at all to rig those machines.

"Firearm License" review board???????????

I'm sorry but I don't remember having to buy a license to speak, so please explain to me why anyone needs a license to exercise any other RIGHT that our constitution guarantees.

Seriously, what part of "Shall not be infringed" don't these tyrannical asshats understand?

While I appreciate your enthusiasm I hope you don't keep speaking this way. It makes us gun owners look violent, crass and hateful. I would recommend buying that AK first. Crossbows won't get banned. I am about to drop some serious coin on a few things I think are going to become insanely expensive soon. Big scary 'assault weapons'. I think they are a better investment than gold at the moment, though I have some of that too. If things go south you will be able to get more for a functional weapon than a shiny coin. Also, so much fun to shoot!

I don't trust Romney or Obama. I think Romney would be safer this time around only because he would want to secure a second term. That's still pretty iffy.
