    Most recent meet the press interview is top video. Watch video, then discuss below. This should be fun. Anyone voting for Romney is welcome to defend his position(s) here. Note that positions is plural, he has many of them!

    Mitt Romney Said:
    We also should keep weapons of unusual lethality from being on the street
    I was taught that all firearms are equally dangerous. What a ******.

    Thanks, Nakedshoplifter.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    To me it is obvious that Romney doesn't know much about guns, and not wanting to offend those who care about guns and the second amendment, he is trying to come up with a position. This is hard to do when you know nothing about the topic you are trying to form a position about.

    Romney is not my first choice. I am still trying to determine if I really believe his change in position of abortion as well as gunsand other things too.

    The best I can say for Romney is that he is good on financial issues and he is better than Obama and Hillary.



    Not a very big endorsement I know but at present it is the best I can give him.

    Who defines weapons of unusual lethality? All guns are capable of causing death. Maybe he's refering to the ones that are black or have certain "scary" features that are somehow more dangereous. :?

    I caught that part too. Cho used a semi-auto Glock with devastating effect. Is that unusual lethality? That comment makes me worry about all guns, not just the EBR's.

    Comments on the video:

    We need to post this everywhere. Gun owners should know who they're voting for. He came down strongly on the side of a new gun ban. He also states incorrectly that there isn't a gun ban being considered in Congress right now.

    I love how he barely answered a single question directly. Fortunately, Russert didn't let him slide like others have.

    Imagine the damage it would cause to our movement if Romney got elected creating the impression both sides support gun control...creating the impression that there's no debate.

    I love Tim Russert. He gets the point and stays there. I think what we have in Mitt Romney is what the Democrats had in John Kerry in 2004: a consistently inconsistent idiot. All guns are lethal. I live in Illinois, where we have a Nazi governor who keeps trying to ban .50 cal rifles and high capacity magazines. You can kill someone just as easily as with a .50 cal as you can with a .22. The bottom line is that we have a RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Just like the criminals they love to support and get votes from also have 'Rights'. Sgt. Jenson, I agree with you 100%. What a ******.

    That may be true, BUT what has he been hunting and what has he used to hunt it.



    Obviously not a gun.

    That's why I'm getting out Stallinois and moving to Kentucky. Thank God! The sooner, the better!

    Yeah in one of the videos he stated that Massachusetts had tough gun laws and he wasn't going to chip away at them. To me that says it all regarding his stance on freedom.

    I can't listen to videos where I am, but from what I've read of the posts after the videos, I've just lost all support for Mitt.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    The question was a simple yes or no. Mitt didn't answer s***. Yes or no. Get some balls, Mitt.

    He is a supporter of guns, he lets his son keep them at his house:P.

    I voted against the second amendment before I voted for it.

    No he didn't. He didn't even come close. He didhis normal Mitt-wit routine where he makes a general statement (I support the 2nd Amendment) and then dodges ("there's no legislation like that before the Congress") (even though if he knew what he was talking about and wasn't reading off of lines written for him, he'd know that there IS legislation like that before the Congress). I have the feeling that if Mitt had a D next to his name, you'd be going :celebrateflip flop:celebrateflip flop :celebrateflip flop:celebrateall over the room.

    I'm starting to thinkg that:
    A Northeast Republican politician = a Heartland (barring IL and MI) moderate Democrat politician
    Bob Owens @ Bearing Arms (paraphrased): "These people aren't against violence; they're very much in favor of violence. They're against armed resistance."

    Good observation.

    This country is too big. It needs to broken into its component parts.

    Tommy-hawk, could you clarify your question? I'm not quite sure what you're asking.

    **edit**

    Are you perhaps pointing out that "states" would just be countries too? If so, I agree...but, because they're smaller, they'd get a government closer to what they want.

    I was being sarcastic in referring to the fact that states' sovereign powers* have been diminished and usurped by various means since the Civil War to the point where soon we will have to rename the nation "The United State of America".

    And the name isn't Tommy, it's Tom A.
