In a move that will help keep the streets and neighborhoods of Massachusetts safe, Governor Mitt Romney today signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that forever makes it harder for criminals to get their hands on these dangerous guns.
Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony with legislators, sportsmens groups and gun safety advocates. 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.
Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new law ensures these deadly weapons, including AK-47s, UZIs and Mac-10 rifles, are permanently prohibited in Massachusetts no matter what happens on the federal level.

Liberal Mitt’s Greatest Hits.
The 2nd Amendment is an excellent litmus test for politicians. And Romney fails miserably.
Can you fix the source for me?

***Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, ****
Interesting. Years ago the Utah designers and manufacturers of the AMERICAN 180 .22 cal machine gun (NOT the Armalite 180) gave the Mormon Church a large amount of stock in their company as a tithe.
Uzi’s and Mac 10s are not rifles LoL
“You knew I was a snake when you picked me up.”
On the other hand, Rick Santorum received an A+ rating from the NRA, and FOUGHT to protect our Second Amendment rights.
NRA CEO said: “He (Rick Santorum) used his influence to get it to the floor. Without that, we would have lost every American gun company.
Can you imagine how it would be if no guns were manufactured in the USA?
Here’s some background:
‘He [Rick Santorum] was the most effective advocate of bringing it [legislation to protect gun companies from frivolous lawsuits] to the floor and getting a vote scheduled. He used his influence to get it to the floor. Without that, we would have lost every American gun company.
Wayne LaPierre, CEO National Rifle Association, October 25, 2006’
Ted Nugent asked Romney to promise no gun control in a potential Romney presidential administration. Romney told Nugent there would be no gun control initiatives, and after that promise Nugent announced he was supporting Romney for president.
Thankfully, Romney has never been known to flip-flop.
Actually, its the go-pees that knew that and picked him for their undercurrent of support.
Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, 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.
Oh yeah, right.
Mr. Willard Big Time I Am A Conservative, HONEST! Romney.
This entire process of the current primary has been sooooo revealing.
The RNC go-pees are destroying themselves.
Am still baffled and shocked that the “NUGE” came out in support of him.
Me too. I can only conclude that he might think that Romney’s word is worth something, when in fact it isn’t.
Those that support Romney may call themselves, “one-eyed, one -horned, flying, purple people eater(s)”, but they are NOT real conservatives.
Someone tell me the reason to vote for Romney? oh yeah Soetero or whatever his name is
Mitt lies like a rug. He will flip at the slightest hint of trouble. He is a sleazy,two timing con man who would steal the pennies off a dead mans eyes.
And he will be our canditate. Yea.....wooo....time to get excited,wow...cant wait to vote for Mitt...not so much....
