    He answered the question at first then changed his tune because of putting a ban in place while governor that was bipartisan(his words not mine).

    He wants the NRA backing, he just does not know how to say No I wont consider a AW ban, because he did put one in place.

    So does anyone know if during the ban that violent crime went down? Did it go up? I am just curious.

    The AR is the platform of choice among coyote hunters here, I know about 20 guys that use these hunting rifles many of them over 65. What did Romney say about the hunting rifles:
    “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.”
    Pretty scary that the two choices in candidates we have will probably have the ability to appoint Supreme Court Justices and they both have dangerous views about gun control.

    Yes that is quite entertaining that Jim Zumbo made essentially the same quotes that Romney did about the same rifles and the NRA condemned the man, yet Romney gets endorsed for banning those same rifles that Zumbo simply mentioned in a blog.

    the NRA also gave Harry Reid an A rating....I think they pick the battles they can win and the players that can win the battles for their agenda

    This might be the most important thing people should think about when they vote!!!

    Contrary to what people think, Obama has already been behind the scenes screwing with gun stores. Right after the CO shooting he sent the ATF out in full force (here in GA anyways) going over paperwork as far back as the stores had sold guns looking for any errors. One store east of Atlanta had a minor, minor error from 10 years ago and they were given 72 hours to shut down. A friend of mine owns a gun store and they spent 2 days going thru his stuff looking for ANYTHING they could find.

    Trust me I am not wild about Romney and his past with gun laws, but it sure as heck beats what Obama has up his sleeve!

    If you like Obama and the secular progressives veiws and desires on guns,gun control and gun legislation over Romneys, than by all means, vote for them!!!!

    I can just see you wearing a button on your shirt stating;
    "I support Obama's gun laws!!!!"
