    Romney and Guns

    During his 2002 gubernatorial campaign, Romney had been a supporter of the federal assault weapons ban, and had also said he believed "in the rights of those who hunt to responsibly own and use firearms."[91] On July 1, 2004, Romney signed a permanent state ban on assault weapons, saying at the signing ceremony for the new law, "Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts. These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people."[92] The law extended a temporary measure that had been in effect since 1998 and covered weapons such as the AK-47, Uzi, and MAC-10.[92] The same law also modified some other aspects of general firearms licensing regulations.[92] (from wikipedia)

    And ignoring facts just like these, the American sheeple have allowed the liberal media to pick the candidates for POTUS.

    A people get the Government they deserve.

    Only one candidate running WAS/IS making the same statements, using identical facts that he was making/using for the last THIRTY YEARS.

    I say again: ...And ignoring facts just like these, the American sheeple have allowed the liberal media to pick the candidates for POTUS. A people get the Government they deserve.
    Don't let PUBLIC EDUCATION be responsible for your legacy of "Gun Control". If you don't train them, who will?

    This is one area where Romney has flip flopped so much that you don't know what he is going to do next.

    Same with Romney Care.

    Same with abortion.

    You need a score card and even then the past or his statements are no indication of what he might do next.

    It doesnt really matter though. Neither guy can do very much if anything for the economy.

    I would like to see more dams and roads built as a long term stimulus. I do not think either one is in favor of that however.

    All the president needs is to look good and give great speeches.

    Ask yourself, whom would you rather listen to a speech from?

    One of them has really great humor, while the other is dry as a bone.

    And when was the last time you donated $10 thousand to anything?

    Pick him apart all you want. He is not a moslem piece of lying miserable garbage and is not a socialist/fascist determined to undermine this country, rot it out from the inside out, have us become a second rate pile of crap under control of the UN and those pieces of garbage. Want to call voting for him a deal with the devil? Fine. We already know what the devil looks like--just look at the whitehouse. Yes we have a very sad state of affairs in this country. Repub, dem, they are all the same right now--looking for their own sense of power and entitlement and leaving the scraps for the rest of us. How many repubs or dems are willing to forego their retirement and medical plans and go with the crap the rest of us have to wallow in? Heck they cannot even make a decision on reducing the debt, which, is really not hard if you make the "hard" and "politically uncorrect" choices. At least with literally anybody but the present joke in the whitehouse who at least has a resume that is american, not moslem, that is a capitalist and not a socialist, that is a businessman and not a pot/drug smoking pile of garbage, that has actually held a real job----shall I go on?

    I am not condoning Romney's past actions in any form or fashion, I am also pissed off that the liberal media once again chose the Republican candidate. Of the original candidates, Romney would not have been over halfway up my list.

    But it is what it is.

    Silver spoon people have no real identification with guns. Bottom line. Oh, they may have taken out some clay pigeons with a fowling iron, and as a kid they may have talked their bodyguard to let them hold his pistol, but that's about it. There were no Saturday afternoons down at the quarry or gravel pit, no mornings climbing into a tree stand or duck blind at oh-dark-thirty with sleet falling and the temperature hovering right around 32F. No looking with envy at some guy's brand new ____________. (fill in the blank with whatever gun you'd love to have but can't justify the cost)

    Politicians say what will get them elected whether they believe it or not. Do you honestly believe that any of the original nine Republican candidates actually care whether or not you can own an AR? Or be able to CC or OC a handgun? Or any other weapon or action that pushes the envelope of the Second Amendment?

    Face it, there are very few gun enthusiasts in the upper crust.

    I said in another thread that I really don't trust Mitt Romney with my Second Amendment rights. I don't. Unless he happens to the the CEO of a gun manufacturer, I would prefer not to trust those rights to anyone with a seven-figure income.

    But I damn sure don't want to trust my Second Amendment rights to anyone with a "D" beside their name, because I know exactly where they stand whether they admit it or not. Obama would take your gun faster than a cat can lick its azz.

    Wow! You haven't heard of gun control? If Obama wins you most certainly will. And I will blame you.

    just dont' go quail hunting with **** cheney lolz they deleted the name 'd i c k' heheh
    i don't like bama or romney they both puppets of goldman sachs monsanto and both members of the cfr, another corrupt crown club hell bent on destroying all that is good for civilian life liberty and freedom
    i'm voting for ron paul as i find he is not a puppet for such evil agendas as the rest are......which is yet another reason the media won't make his name well known they don't want the public to know about him or his platform so they deliberately downplay him is a powerful tool and they know it and use it to push forth their agenda
