    This article is about how he isn't really a "lifelong hunter" but I found a few quotes that I think are pretty telling.

    The 2nd isn't about hunting. Tired of hearing this crap.
    So you support gun control...you believe gun control keeps us safe...

    And that just sounds stupid.

    Don't trust anything he says.

    Mitt is politican that has the ablity to talk out of both sides of his mouth. He will say anything to get elected, then once elected do the opposite of what he said during the campaign. I should know since I live in Mass, and the state is far worse off now than it was before he was elected to office. He is also a classic authortrian who would pass any gun control bill that came across his desk.


    FYI, we already had a AWB in Mass since 1994. All he signed was a new version with some language changes that actually cleared up some of the grey areas in the old law. There was no way in hell the old law would ever be stricken from the books, so when the antis created a new AWB with tougher language they did not have enough votes to pass it, so they had to compromise by rewriting the old law. Gun owners got the best compromise by a rewrite of the old law, that did not ban any new firearms, and cleaned up the language of the old bill.

    Yet another "I was against guns, before I was for them" type politician.

    Not surprised really.

    Political chameleons changing their colors depending on the office they are trying to run for.

    From the article linked above. Well that reporter for the NR does not have a clue on gun laws. We had a AWB since 1994 in this state. What a moron for not fact checking and taking internet rumor has fact.

    Hey... this is progress believe it or not.

    Look back to the 2000 Primary period. George W. Bush was saying that he would sign a renewal of the AWB and close the "gun show loophole" and he was the conservative guy on guns. His competitor McCain was taking money from former Handgun Control Inc. Board of Director Andrew McKelvey and actively being more hardline on guns than Bush.

    On the Democratic side, the most "moderate" gun control position was Al Gore who just wanted all gun owners licensed and registered. Other candidates, like Bill Bradley had extreme licensing and registration proposals as well as outright bans even broader than what was currently law.

    Now here it is eight years later, some Democrats actually speak out FOR gun rights and the ones that do not are either silent or get their picture taken with a $30k shotgun around election time. On the Republican side, even those who have supported gun control in the past are doing their best to distance themselves from it. This is a great indicator of how strong gun owners voices can be when we work together.
