    Anyone know Gov. Romney's position on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms?
    Thanks.

    Slightly better than Giuliani, but he still doesn't appear to "get it". His knowledge of gun RIGHTS issues seems superficial at best.

    He probably wouldn't PUSH gun confiscation the way Giuliani would, but don't count on him to resist it either.

    Romney is your typical two faced politician.

    from wikipedia: (emphasis mine)

    I will not vote for Romney in the primary... and I'm a Mormon.

    He just doesn't "get it." Typical East Coast Politican in my book.

    IMO, from the GOP he may be as good as it gets this election, too bad he stained by Massachusetts style politics.

    He shows a bit more principle than some of his opponents, a la NPR interview last week, he outright refused to incorporate his faith into his politics, I was impressed. If Dr. Ron was his VP I'd vote for him :D:D:D:D:D

    I wouldn't vote for a big time, east coast liberal RINO like Romney under any circumstance. He only became 'pro gun' when you decided to run for president and knew his long time anti-gun stance was a loser. Another lying weasel politician.

    My favorite right now is Duncan Hunter, but no one but me has ever heard of him. At least we have a few months to figure it out.

    Being a voter from Massachusetts I know a lot about Romney.He does like to flip flop.However,from my standpoint,who else can I vote for?Forget about any Demmies.Guiliani is a typical NYC anti gun nut,McCaine has voted for a few anti gun bills,and Thompson cannot win.That being,I will vote for Romney even if he is a phony,he has publicly joined the NRA. If anyone has a better idea please let me know.

    Ron Paul?

    If you want a 100 percenter on gun rights, Paul's your man.

    Everytime I hear Congressman Paul speak I'm encouraged that there is, in fact, intelligent life on earth. But then he goes off about the war which, IMHO, disqualifies him.

    jlbraun is right. RP has a perfect record, and can actually pull dem and independent voters. He's also pulling in lots of money. The big media just needs to wake up.

    Right now, it's looking like we won't have a clear front runner until the convention, so it's likely to be a brokered convention. I wouldn't count out anyone right now. Giuliani, Romney and now Huckabee all look like they'd lose against any dem.

    My biggest beef with Huckabee is that he doesn't recognize seperation of church and state. Granted, a lot of other candidates do not either, it just makes it especially worse because he is a pastor.

    Bingo. Romney is the only anti-gun presidential candidate who ever signed anti-gun legislation into law.

    warning. this thread will be locked as soon as a moderator sees it.

    :)

    Politics is now off topic, even gun politics.

    My take is that most politicians do not care about much of anything but getting elected. They say what it takes to get enough people to vote for them. I would not be all that worried that he is not a Ron Paul kind of 2A hardliner. Very few people will find any candidate that they agree with 100%. That means most of us have to make a choice between candidates that you may have issues with in one or more areas.

    I could have sworn I saw somewhere that discussion of specific 2A agendas with candidates was allowed.

    If not, I'm sorry.

    Romney just does not get it. Pisses me off when candidates throw out the hunting thing to show they are pro 2A.

    Huckabee gets my vote if the election was today. Maybe somone else will step forward that is more worthy by the actual election day. At least Huckabee gets what 2A is all about

    I have heard Romney admit he was wrong in the past. Might be irrelevent to the discussion, but worth keeping tucked away for upcoming debates.

    I don't see anything wrong with being a hunter. Or being a politician that supports hunting. It just has nothing to do with the 2A, and only indirectly with guns at all.

    My guess is he is a John Kerry type hunter. Go shoot at a few ducks using someone else's dogs, guns and equipment, carry some dead ducks around that you may or may not have personally shot so your handpicked media can take some photos, then hand off the dead birds to someone else to deal with, and not go hunting again until the next election cycle.

    The fact that a lot of candidates are afraid of the "gun lobby" (thats us, in case you did not realize it) is a good thing.

    Romney gave a description, it was almost painful, about how someone in his family back in Utah, has a Glock or something, and he likes to use it when he is there.

    A lot of people in Utah will vote for any Mormon who can fog a mirror.

    The answer Fred! gave at one of the recent debates (paraphrased):

    "I have a few guns, but I'm not going to tell you what they are or where they are."

    shows me he gets it very clearly indeed, without having to advertise.

    Huckleberry looks like the clear winner to me, at least regarding 2A which is about all I care about passionately.

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like Ron Paul has a chance. Some of his ideas are a bit too radical for most Americans to swallow. I'd like to see him win, but it doesn't look like it will happen. That being said, even though Romney's a mormon, and I live in Utah, for every Mitt Romney sticker I see on a car, I see ten Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee stickers.

    Huckabee's stance on the 2A is pretty strong, and he has a bit more of a chance. He's got my vote.
