Also, Romney signed a bill which fixed what I consider a fatal flaw in the Massachusetts assault weapons ban. The existing law referenced the federal law which was due to expire without explicitly providing validity despite the expiration.

I don't believe any court could have enforced such a law. Romney fixed it so that it could be enforced and even had the NRA compromise to get it done.

“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.”

- Alleged Republican Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, July 1, 2004, after signing permanent assault weapons ban

I wouldn’t call that a “fix” unless you mean fixed it for the gun grabbers.
