Watch him flip flop if he's elected

Gun-rights groups perceive President Barack Obama as a threat to unfettered access to firearms. They once had qualms about Mitt Romney, too.
But times and circumstances have changed for Romney, the GOP presidential nominee now in tune with the National Rifle Association and similar organizations, whose members are motivated voters.
In the tight White House race, every bit of support helps, especially in the most closely contested states and particularly from groups that claim millions of members nationwide.
Romney's prior embrace of weapon-control proposals had put him crossways with the NRA and others. These days, Romney is on their good side by opposing renewal of a federal ban on semiautomatic weapons, additional regulations on gun shows and suggested federal gun registration requirements.
The NRA and some less prominent organizations are spending big money on mailings, radio ads, TV commercials and booths at game fairs to promote the former Massachusetts governor and portray Obama as hostile to gun rights.

He's a fucking politician and will say whatever he needs to in order to get elected. Remember, he was the governor of one of the most anti-2A states in the Union. Were there any repeals of any gun laws in Massachusettes when he was governor? No? Did he support the Assault Weapon ban? Yes. It's a matter of public record.
This man will attempt to take your guns away. Just watch.

I have always said, and will continue to say, the power is in the House and Senate, NOT the White House.

We need to make sure the right people are in office from city to state to national; then it won't matter who's in the Oval Office.

I agree, but it's currently a choice between having someone who MIGHT take them away versus having someone who IS CURRENTLY trying to do so.

My vote is for Johnson.

I can't argue with most of that, Ken, but, being a Masshole, and old enough to remember when Mittens was gov, it was a different environment both in MA and on the fed scene regarding gun control. Restrictions were increasing in almost every state, matching the ones we already had. Even suggesting that we had enough restrictions in place already was enough for the mayor of Boston to lose his job and support from the cop unions. The female-led hairy-legged bastids down the road at Hahvid worked up into such a froth that they were leaving snail trails everywhere and sliding off the furniture and onto the floor at the idea that MA would be a gun-free state. They still try. One of their leaders , Elizabeth Warren, a 'consumer advocate' is trying to oust the decent guy who took Ted Kennedy's job when Teddy had the decency to die before he could kill any more passengers in his car.

I hate MA. My wife won't let us leave.

That's why picking Ryan for VP was a brilliant choice. You think a guy that holds a permit for every season in Wisconsin is going to let Mittens even think about touching anti-gun legislation? I'm not saying I'm thrilled with this lineup, but dammit, Reagan is dead and Allen West isn't running for president, so I'll take what I can get.

You're right as rain WC. You'd think the American people would get their heads out of their asses
after fifty years of the same old political horse shit. WHEN are we going to elect someone in there that gives a fuck for the little guy?? They have such a strangle hold on the system now it'll take an insurrection to change things.

There is no doubt in my mind this RINO motherfucker is still anti-2A, and anyone who buys the bullshit he's sellin' is a fool. People don't just over night change how they truly feel about the Second Amendment like RINOomney claims he has - unless they're running for office like RINOmney is.

His voting record speaks for itself and it's all I need to know where he's coming from. Bastard.

I'm not saying Romney isn't a lying politician, but for those of you unfamiliar with Massachusetts, it was anti-gun before he got there, and will still be anti-gun wen he's dead and in his grave.

It could be argued he was doing what he was elected to do - giving them the government the _majority_ wanted (yeah, yeah, who protects the right of the individual these days?)

They don't call the occupants of that state "Mass-holes" for nothing. I've got relatives that live there and in Connecticut, and the citizens of both states are almost entirely spineless "subjects" rather than citizens. They seem to _like_ it that way.

No matter. Just remember you voted for what Obama is going to do to all of us when you don't vote against him, and it is going to be a lot worse than you think, I promise you.
