He has made dozens of public statements that Assault Weapons have no place in society.
He also puchased a lifetime membership in the NRA a month before he declared his candiacy last election cycle, then FALSELY claimed an NRA endorsement. Here is just one of many referenced quotes from the flip-flopping cult memmber.
Q: As governor you signed into law one of the toughest restrictions on assault weapons in the country.
A: Lets get the record straight. First of all, theres no question that I support 2nd Amendment rights, but I also support an assault weapon ban. Look, Ive been governor in a pretty tough state. Youve heard of blue states. In the toughest of blue states, I made the toughest decisions and did what was right for America. I have conservative values.
