This from a guy with a history of gun control advocacy that rivals some of the worst gun grabbers in America!
Without offering details, Romney said that Obama would like to erode gun owners’ rights.
“We need a president who will enforce current laws, not create new ones that only serve to burden lawful gun owners,” Romney told thousands of NRA members in St. Louis for their annual convention. “President Obama has not. I will.”
This is coming from Romney, who supports the “assault weapons” ban (without actual comprehension of the meaning of “assault weapons” or “shall not be infringed”), supports waiting periods and gun registration and the Brady Bill, and any other means to beg the nanny state for permission to exercise your fundamental right!
I’ve said this many times before – the moment you have to ask permission of politicians to exercise your right, it’s no longer a right, but a privilege.
So, no. Not happening.
Whom does Mittens think he’s fooling?
Shit, Obama has assailed gun rights less than Romney has in recent years.
Governor Romney has a solid record of pursuing gun control measures to control crime and increase safety. He is vocally supportive of the assault weapons ban, supported a waiting period, and supports registration. While Governor he continued Massachusetts’s history of gun control advocacy.
In 2002, Mitt Romney stated in a debate that he supported the tough gun laws in Massachusetts and that he believed they help protect us and keep us safe. He vowed not to chip away at those laws.
While in office, Governor Romney supported the Brady bill and a waiting period because it was necessary to complete a background check. More recently, he has stated that with the advent of instant background checks, a waiting period is no longer required.
Just whom does he think he’s kidding?
