    Romney on guns

    I've not heard much about Romney's stance on the 2nd Amendment. Does anyone know how he stands? Is he for, against or somewhere in the middle?

    IBTL....I think he falls somewhere between Michael Bloomberg and Ted Nugent.

    This is going to get locked, but he introduced an AWB in Massachusetts as Governor and is proud of it. Basically he's about the same as Obama on the issue, but people are pretending Obama is somehow worse when that's not the case.

    Romney seems to be for gun control for that reason. How much? Not sure. He was governor of my state and we have the WORST gun rules and laws.

    Check out the principal Massachusetts gun-rights org to see what they say. He was their governor, so I think they may have more credibility than other groups.

    He is endorsed by the NRA, over his opponent. No more need be said.

    I was a MA property owner and taxpayer back then, so I was pretty plugged into the Bay State laws. The MA AWB was actually enacted in 1998.

    Romney served as the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007. Romney signed a permanent AWB in 2004.
