Considering his track record and the “conventional wisdom” surrounding Mitt Romney, I thoroughly expected to find out that “moderate Mitt” was only a lip-service supporter of the Second Amendment.
If Mitt ends up winning the race because GOP voters choose him in the nation’s primaries, gun owners need to know the truth about Mitt Romney’s record on guns as Governor of Massachusetts. I have said before many, many times that as a gun owner in Massachusetts during his term, I was extremely active in the efforts to fight more gun control. Guess who was on our side for that battle? Mitt.
This qualifies as one of those “read the whole thing” sort of a post if you’re a Republican primary, a RKBA geek, or both. Romney isn’t the kind to carry a gun, but he doesn’t seem to have intentions or limiting the rights of gun owners, and if he becomes the nominee, he sure beats the hell out of the alternative currently defiling the Oval Office.
