Romney permanently banned guns. All of the obfuscation in the world, all of the sophisticated spin of his lawyers, hacks, and sycophants, can't hide that fact.

“Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts,” Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony...“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.”

The same class of weapons, by the way, that you can see depicted in the hands of the Minutemen in the following image:

“The power of the sword is in the hands of Congress? My friends and countrymen, it is not so; for the powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The Militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the Militia? They are not ourselves as politicians and lawmakers. They are those who have elected us into our positions and entrusted us with the power of preserving and carrying out their wishes. Congress has no power to disarm the Militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the Federal or State governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

-– Tench Coxe, letter to James Madison during adoption of the Bill of Rights in the United States Congress (1789)

They were already banned. The Massachusetts Gun Owners Action League was lobbying FOR this legislation that he signed because it actually expanded gun rights, not the opposite that you keep pretending.

Lie all you want, bold all you want, post all the pretty pictures you want - it doesn’t change the facts or his history.... again, as proven by GOAL and the NRA.
