Has Romney ever supported 2nd Amendments rights? Doesn’t he refuse to hunt, and thinks hunting is a bad thing?

The semi-automatic rifle, an AR-15, was illegal under federal law until a ban on it was lifted in 2004.

Er... No. That is not what that idiotic law did. Sheesh.

Uh, no it was not. But this is the type of journ-O-lism I expect from the Hill.

The NRA endorses a man who permanently banned the exact sort of weapons that the British redcoats went to Lexington and Concord to try to confiscate.

Shameful, but not surprising. The NRA has been supporting democrats for years.

Ann Romney travelled to St. Louis for the 2012 NRA annual convention earlier this year and addressed the "2012 Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum." Mitt (a Life member - no idea when he joined) also addressed the convention where he championed the Constitution.
American Hunter, SEP 2012, p. 14

NRA president, David Keene, wrote in the SEP 2012 edition of the American Hunter: Jim Wallace, Executive Director of the MA Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) and an NRA committee member says without equivocation that during Romney's administration "no anti-second Amendment or anti-sportsmen legislation made it to the governor's desk and the governor managed to sign 5 pro-Second Amendment/pro-sportsmen bills into law." That, says Wallace, must be considered an extraordinary achievement given the political realities of MA (during his watch, Democrats controlled 2/3 of both chambers of the state legislature).

Chris Cox, NRA ILA (Institute of Legislative Action) Executive Director, interviewed Mitt Romney for the SEP 2012 edition of American Rilfeman and American Hunter (p. 16-19). Mitt sounded mighty conservative on all matters regarding the 2nd Amendment.

That said, I don't trust WMR at all. His history of flip-flopping on a host of other issues, his support of homosexuality in the Boy Scouts and right for homosexual couples to adopt, his holding the TEA Party at arm's length, and his actions at the 2012 GOP convention where conservatism was excluded show me he is not to be trusted.

Q: But what choice do we have?
A: The devil we don't know. I too will crawl over broken glass to vote for WMR.

We don't need gov't permission to enforce our rights: just our index finger.

The Kenyan must go.

Crap, all I know is that Obama is going to lose the Salesmen of the Year Award for Firearms come January 2013.

And good bye you POS.

LaPierre said in a statement. “There is only one choice – only one hope – to save our firearms freedom and our way of life.”

There is another, more ugly way, that might become necessary.

The NRA is sometimes pragmatic to a fault. I can understand a C rating for Mitt over an F for Obama, but he should not get the endorsement. I wouldn't have done it. I'd release a statement to the effect of "he's not getting a full endorsement, but better than the other guy."

Joe Schwarz was endorsed, so there is precedence for bad endorsements. I'm voting for Mitt as the lesser of two evils, but I'm not going to delude myself into thinking he's the next George Washington.

Neither candidates understands the issue and both have been on the record as being anti-gun. There is no question that Romney is not as bad on the issue but he is no champion of our gun rights.

This should be a headline on The Onion, not The Hill.

Disgusting that the NRA would endorse a POS left-winger who actually signed an assault weapons ban. A conservative Republican congress might well hold this Democrat-with-an-R in check, but I don’t count on it. And no, before you get to it, I’m not voting for Obama.
