Yes,we do like our guns. The current presidential administration,in league with Hillary are working hard to eradicate our 2nd amendment and disarm us. The first attempt was the UN ATT treaty. That was shelved,redesigned,cooked and garnished a little more and is now back up and ready to be pushed down our throats again.
Hillary will not stop until our guns are taken and we are slaves. Remember what happened to the Jews and Pols when Hitler disarmed them. They were ethnically slaughtered.
History is repeating itself folks. Contact your senators and reps and tell them to reject ALL UN treaties that come to vote.Especially Agenda 21 sustainable development that seeks to remove our rights to own private property.
The UN is attempting to take our national sovereignty away every chance they get and the liberals are more than happy to hand it to them.

Romney was a governor in an extremely liberal state. Not only that, but he didn't have a conservative legislature to work with.

A representative is supposed to exercise the will of his constituents. It's his or her job to bring their concerns up front and deal with them be that making decisions, alterations, or law. Romney did that.

His record as a governor of a liberal state is moot to what he would do as President where the majority of people are not liberal. But even if governs as a liberal President, he still has to deal with a somewhat conservative House and hopefully Senate.

You raise two good points about Candidate Romney and his anti-gun, non-support of the Second Amendment.

Romney apparently lacks the fortitude to hold his principles – supporting the rights of Americans under the doctrines established by the Second Amendment, as demonstrated by his actions when he was Governor of Massachusetts; and conforming his official actions as the Massachusetts Governor to bend to the politics of his so-called liberals who opposed his view.

(For all you Affordable Health Care haters; Massachusetts Governor Romney brought Romney-Care to Massachusetts as the model for the national program you love to hate so much)

Romney could have refused to sign the gun-ban bill – veto it, and force the legislature to override his objections to the gross infringement on gun owners’ rights that Romney agreed to enact.

Romney exhibits no qualities of leadership or principles that are necessary for a Commander-in-Chief or the President of the U.S.A.

There is something very ironic that in Massachusetts, where the founding fathers first took up their personal firearms, the “assault weapons” of the late 18th Century, to begin the American Revolution our Republican presidential candidate, Romney, then governor of Massachusetts, signed the gun-ban bill. Then-Governor Romney ignored the heritage of Freedom that our forefathers in the American Revolution fought and died for in order to give us our American heritage of Freedom and right to bear arms.

Romney is without question a massive failure as man and American when it comes to protecting individual liberty and freedom in the USA. His orchestration of youthful bullying of a weak kid (Done by his Richie-rich buddies), secret bank accounts, lack of openness, tax-cheating scams and dishonesty about himself shows that his failures are both personal and political. It’s easy to be rich when your daddy was – ask Paul Ryan.

It’s hard to defend and protect other people’s rights and freedoms – something Romney and Ryan have not done. Instead, Romney wanted to chip away at American Freedom and ban gun-ownership in direct conflict with his lies about his “support” of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Romney’s own actions as a governor violate the presidential oath of office for Romney to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Romney has already shown that he lacks the personal ability in the face of political pressures to actually protect and defend the US Constitution. Romney’s actions as a governor beg the question; what parts of the US Constitution and which rights it bestows on Americans would Romney abolish when he has the power and a political climate he does not fear?

It’s a good thing Romney did not support the killing or capture of bin Laden like he “supported” the US Constitution’s Second Amendment or bin Laden and Romney would be chitchatting over the best places, secret bank accounts, and tax scams to put their daddies’ money and hide from the taxes they owe and make sure that our constitutional rights are abolished.

That goes both ways you know. As I stated, what he did as governor and what he might do as President may be two different things. On the other hand, we know what Obama would do.

He promised to close Gitmo, and it's still open today. He only stopped the Iraq war just before his reelection bid. He not only kept the TSA program, but made it larger and stronger now with virtual strip searches. The Patriot Act? Never went near it with a Democrat House and Senate. What about the NSA program hated by so many Democrats? Still going strong. He called Bush unpatriotic and irresponsible for his spending, and when given a chance, he spent even more in half the time. And what about bringing us a balanced budget? We are still running deficits. His transparency he promised us? Gave his AG a pass on disclosing documents for Fast and Furious.

So we can only suspect what kind of leadership Romney would bring us, but we don't have to suspect the hypocrisy and lies Obama brings us. We already know. So my bet is on something new.

Romney Un-American
#10 Aug 16, 2012
Romneys’ un-American diminution of American Freedoms and his trashing of the U.S. Constitution by saying he supported the Second Amendment and then immediately signing a gun ban into law in Massachusetts make him a threat to every right and freedom in America. Romney’s actions prove his own words to be lies when it comes to protecting and upholding the Constitution as required of a President by his Oath of Office.

You regurgitate only stale tea-bagger red herrings as issues – all unrelated to Romney’s attack on American freedom when he was Governor of Massachusetts. Since Romney’s actions show that he personally holds American freedoms and rights as being only political expediencies we can expect his future behavior to follow his past behavior. Romney robbed us of our liberty and rights and will do so again if elected.

Romney as head of the Marriott Corp’s Board of Directors Audit Committee swindled the IRS out of more than 70 million dollars and (Under a George Bush Attorney General)“…A federal appeals court invalidated the maneuver in a 2009 ruling, siding with the U.S. Department of Justice, which called Marriott’s transaction and attempted tax benefits ‘fictitious,’‘artificial,’‘spe ctral,’ an ‘illusion’ and a ‘scheme.’…” Romney and Marriott lost at the IRS, the tax court and on appeal and their tax scam was invalid as is Romney’s character, ethics and integrity.

When Romney ran for governor in Massachusetts he was “pro-choice” and politically campaigned on a woman’s right to choose saying that “Women should be free to choose based on their own beliefs, not the governments” Just Romney pandering for votes saying anything he thinks his audience wishes to hear.

Romney’s press release in Massachusetts near Lexington, Concord , Bunker Hill and the home of the original Tea Party said ““Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts,” Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony with legislators, sportsmen’s groups and gun safety advocates.“ I doubt the framers of the US Constitution would agree given their use of deadly weapons on British Imperialist forces during the American Revolution.

The liar is Romney, mainly with his conflicting words and politically-motivated actions. Romney is a personal and corporate tax deadbeat and has done serious anti-American work to undermine our rights granted by the US Constitution. Romney has proven he is only unfit for office and he would have disqualified his own running mate for the potential VP’s lack of business experience.

Maybe Romney is just delusional as he appears to be when he denies responsibility for RomneyCare, the model for the Affordable Health Care Act. Or maybe he is just another GOP liar like the corrupt and incompetent Republicans burrowed into public offices in Delaware County. Your choice is a bad bet.

What it has to do with guns is that Romney will likely not lead as President as he did Governor of the most liberal state in the union. That's what it has to do with guns. John Kasich signed the assault weapons ban when he was in Congress. This is the same John Kasich who recently signed the "bar bill" in Ohio which allows us to carry firearms in businesses that serve alcohol provided we are not drinking. Included in that repeal was getting rid of the restriction of a gun being in it's holster in a closed compartment of a vehicle. Now we can lay our loaded firearm on the passenger seat if we so desire holstered or not. We can even carry our weapons in arenas such as the Browns stadium or Progressive Field.

The other point is that we know what DumBama will do to our country because he's been President for the last four years. Romney hasn't. It is suspected that the reason Fast and Furious took place was so DumBama could start a campaign on gun restrictions in our country. By having reports of thousands of American guns in the hands of Mexican drug lords would serve as evidence we need more gun regulations.

Paranoia paranoia everybody's out to get me...

Thanks for finally saying what you meant. You mean that if Obama stays in office, you believe he will steal your guns with legislature. However, you have no real proof to base this on. You are playing scare tactics. It's not a new trick, and no one is buying--except the lunatics who already believe it. Futility. Love it.
ROMNEY FAILS ON GUNS
#15 Aug 17, 2012
"xxxrayted" has resorted to the current GOP practice of lying to justify their hate.

Seriously, your tea-bagger tripe is not just inaccurate it is dishonest.

George W. Bush was the US President when the Department of Defense decided to halt sales of scrap – spent shell casings from fired military ammunition in 2008.

Obama is the US President whose administration reversed Bush’s policy in March 2009. Both the Department of Defense and the National Rifle Association have confirmed, in separate press releases, the Obama administration changes to the Bush policies on banning reloadable scrap cartridge cases and that such items were not sold to China.

Nevertheless, Romney is the candidate who actually banned guns when he was a governor and Obama has done nothing to impede lawful gun ownership in the USA .

Romney and his “xxxrayted” rabble rousers are the liars who choose to not be truthful about the situations and their hateful rants are only full of political-venom and dishonesty.

Romney is a tax cheater, a bully, and a dishonest patriot – traitor, when it comes to protecting the US Constitution and the Freedoms American enjoy from our Constitution. Perhaps your motivation blatant political dishonesty and lying is a weak attempt to “Stand With Mitt” in his lies and subterfuge or to be a typical dishonest lying Delaware Republican. Whatever your motivation it’s simply lying

TEABAGGER BAD DREAM

San Jose, CA

The real plan

Shortly after the November election the federal government is set to provide “surplus” military firearms to civilians. These M4A1’s will be set for no more than 3 round bursts and NOT be fully automatic. Appropriate cleaning and maintenance supplies will be furnished along with ten 30-round box magazines and 1,000 rounds of 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition.

Handguns, primarily the M9 (Beretta 92FS, 9x19mm) and M11 (SIG P228, 9x19mm) will be available if requested by the recipient in addition to the aforementioned “long guns” along with appropriate ammunition and maintenance supplies.

Distribution will be made to those registered voters living in so-called “high crime” areas within established voting precincts or wards and serve to provide the law-abiding residents within these areas a means of first level self-protection. Recipients of these weapons will be immediately enabled to carry and transport them, concealed or otherwise so their use in self-defense is unhindered.

The intent is to level the playing field whereby wealthy, relatively crime free neighborhoods whom have economic access to self-defense weapons are safer than the economically disadvantaged. There will be tax credits for persons declaring more than $500,000 in net taxable income upon their purchase of qualified self-defense weaponry.

Federal officials believe that this plan is revenue neutral since these weapons will soon be “surplus” and unneeded by our fighting forces as military combat commitments draw down.

This is totally crazy and it should make you want to slap the hell out of the idiots we have in Washington DC .
Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in America . They
sell 9mm,..45,.223 ammunition. They normally buy spent brass from the
US Department of Defense. Spent brass is "one time used" shell cases
used by our Military for training purposes.
They buy the brass, recondition it, and then reload the brass for resale
to Law Enforcement, Gun Clubs, Gun Shops, and stores like Wal-Mart.
Screw China.

What is stopping law enforcement or the military (or private citizens) from making their own reloads from spent training casings?

Nothing.

And why the need for average citizens to own military style assault weapons?

I can't think of a single instance of when a citizen militia needed to rise up in arms against a tyrannical act by government.

The batman movie shooter is probably the best recent example of why ordinary citizens should NOT possess such weapons.

Just how do you think the American Revolution started? Bloggers?

The patriots then used muskets; the "assault weapons" of their time, remarkably similar in function to the weaponry of the British imperialist forces, arguably the most power military force on the planet at the time.

Would you have been happier if he used a .357 to kill all those people? Dead is dead. It doesn't matter whether you use an assault riffle or a .22 handgun.

Nearly every day you can find a story somewhere where a citizen protected themselves (or others) because they did have a firearm on them. Of course, it would never get the press Colorado did, but yes, it does happen. I recall several stories here in the Cleveland area alone. And yes, they were only local stories you read on page B-2.

I believe that recreational narcotics should be outlawed. That would stop people from using recreational narcotics. Ooooops. I forgot, recreational narcotics are already illegal.
