Mitt Romney on "Assault" Weapons Bans:
I do support the Second Amendment. I would have signed the assault weapon ban that came to his desk. I said I would have supported that and signed a similar bill in our state. It was a bill worked out, by the way, between pro-gun lobby and anti-gun lobby individuals. Both sides of the issue came together and found a way to provide relaxation in licensing requirements and allow more people to--to have guns for their own legal purposes. So we signed that in Massachusetts, and Id support that at the federal level. It did not pass at the federal level. I do not believe we need new legislation. I do not support any new legislation of an assault weapon ban nature, including that against semiautomatic weapons. We have laws in place that, if theyre implemented & enforced, will provide the protection and the safety of the American people. I do support the right of individuals to bear arms, whether for hunting purposes or for protection purposes or any other reasons. Thats the right that people have
Let us see what else:
The candidate reiterated his support for an assault weapons ban contained in Congress crime bill, and the Brady law which imposes a five-day waiting period on handgun purchases. I dont think (the waiting period) will have a massive effect on crime but I think it will have a positive effect, Romney said. Source: Joe Battenfeld in Boston Herald , Aug 1, 1994
The "good honest man" you spoke of when mentioning Etch-A-Sketch Romney:
"Oh, and also the one about this "lifelong" devotion to hunting, which turned out to mean he'd done it twice. "I'm not a big-game hunter," Romney said, then explained that his preferred prey were rodents, rabbits, and such--"small varmints, if you will."
"He couldn't fathom why the caricature of him was sticking. When Romney's staff showed him the devastating YouTube video, his first reaction was,"Boy, look how young I was back then." Source: Game Change, by Heilemann & Halpern, p.293-295 , Jan 11, 2010
Stop being a GOP sheep and supporting dumbass gun grabbers just because they have (R) after their name. Better yet, stop blasting other conservatives for not voting for the same socialist gun grabber you did. some of us actually adhere to conservative principles vice anonymously post about them on FR with 0 follow through.
We got 0care because McCain was a terrible candidate that ran against himself. I supported Sarah Palin and ergo John McCain.....to include monetarily.
After the shellacking McCain received, the GOPe was running with it's tail between the legs. The Tea Party swept in in 2010 to combat the empowered radical left.
The GOPe co-opted the newly elected Tea Party Congressmen. Then they sandbagged every conservative in the 2012 race so "their guy" could be the nominee.
Myth is a leftist that says/does anything to get elected.
I'm with the Reagan mindset....you won't agree with me 100% of the time, but if you agree 75% then I'm your man. I don't agree with Myth on guns, baby murder, faggot marriage, or healthcare. I don't find myself on agreeing with him even 50% of the time.
If it is down to a single SCOTUS nominee that our republic hangs in the balance....all is already lost.
They could repeal the 2nd Amendment tomorrow and make everything bigger than a BB gun illegal......wouldn't make a difference. I'll never surrender my guns and will shoot anyone that comes for them same as today if need be.
But if I have one that holds 11, are you ok with them throwing me in prison for a year? Why?
No, I’m not okay with it. There should be no limit.
I think you may be on to something there....
We know for certain they don't give a rats a$$ about us or the country by the way they run the economy...
what we need to figure out is their true true motive....
Whenever I find myself feeling smug, like after an news artical where the Obummer gets slapped down, I remember the fact that this son of a RED will probably get to name THREE supreme court judges IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS..!!
Then...Well...I guess we'll go to war...Because their is no way on this side of hell I'm going to give up my God given rights to a smuck like that...Or any smuck at all, for that matter....
The dems are always happy to take baby steps....
They do have patience as they march toward their goals.
It would also try to curb gun sales in states with more relaxed gun laws to buyers in states with stricter laws.
Dont they have to be shipped to a licensed dealer in your state?Doesnt that dealer have to follow the laws of your state?
Handguns, yes. Long guns no under Fed law, although some states may prohibit as well. And of course, any dealer or individual can refuse a sale for any or no reason.
If you have a C & R license, you can have a great variety of guns shipped directly to you. The best $10.00 per year you can spend.
IF THE GOVERNMENT, IN 1933, COULD PASS A LAW MANDATING YOU SELL YOUR GOLD IN 60 DAYS TO THEM, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THEY CAN’T MANDATE YOU SELL THEM YOUR GUNS IN 60 DAYS?
Executive Order 6102 required all persons to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67 (equivalent to $371.10 today) per troy ounce. Under the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended by the recently passed Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, violation of the order was punishable by fine up to $10,000 (equivalent to $180 thousand today) or up to ten years in prison, or both.
