ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Gun-rights groups perceive President Barack Obama as a threat to unfettered access to firearms. They once had qualms about Mitt Romney, too.

I’m hoping that Ryan can keep Romney on the straight and narrow.

In NY, NRA backed Pataki (R) against Cuomo (D). “Vote Pataki / Defend Freedom” signs everywhere.

Big mistake. Worst thing to happen to NY gun owners since Sullivan (basis for NY’s hideous gun laws).
The fear remains that we’re doing the same with Romney.

Romney, like all liberals, redefine words to try to not make themselves out as liars. “I didn’t ban guns, just high-capacity cop killer bullets, school-killing magazines, black guns, scary looking guns, scoped sniper rifles, etc.”
