    NO!

    We need to quit trying to connect what happened in Massachusetts with anything Romney may or may not do as president.

    Massachusetts is infested with anti-gun liberals. It's not like Romney thought up gun control in Massachusetts and went and passed it all by himself.

    The anti-gun people of Massachusetts got what they voted for.

    Romney isn't going to ban Glocks.
     
  4. No one can predict what Romney will do. He changes his positions as often as most people change socks.

    That's not what he told Ted anyway.

    Anyway, that would require an act of congress.

    Mittens' language on guns is extremely lawerly and precise in an effort to be vague and non-committal. I can say that he hasn't retracted his support for a national AWB and doesn't regret signing into law the MA AWB.

    :rofl: And the Obamination hasn't changed his position on anything? But then he hasn't changed his socialist idea of "SPREADING THE WEALTH" of the working class or his Marxist policies of having the government control banking major industry and our health care (shades of Hitler). Ho yah! Lets put The Obaminatian back in because Romney "might" (although highly doubtful) ban Glocks. :crazy:

    :rofl:

    So those who connected Obama with what he did in Illinois and at Harvard were completely off base? After all, those places are infested with anti-gun liberals too, right?

    Ask yourself what makes a person want to run for office in a place infested with anti-gun liberals... Could it be that that's the only place a person like him could be elected?

    Jerry I have noticed something that just seems to be overlooked.

    Obama was elected on big promises, most of which he didn't deliver and most of the rest failed. People completely overlooked the whole "checks and balances" system that places neccessarly limits on what a President can do.

    Ron Paul fans were wooed by his promises of big changes and reforms, IMO many neccessary and good, but they too overlook the fact that the President doesn't do it in a vaccuum. Those pesky checks and balances again.

    Many of us know we are voting for Romney as simply a way of getting Obama out. Now that seems to be a much more realistic and acheivable goal, as opposed to big changes. I actually think that many are opposed to Romney because his promises AREN'T big and unachievable. They think a candidate has to promise things they CAN'T deliver. It seems that we are getting pasted because we admit "our" candidate isn't perfect and won't fix everything. Our expectations are simple and reasonable, we dare to settle for someone we know is less than perfect. That seems to offend those looking for an elected savior.

    I've believe the EPA will not let Glock do their finish in the US. Is that AAAA032? Is that a prototype?

    edit
    Where that one says

    Glock, Inc., Smyrna, GA.


    Mine says

    Made in Austria
    Glock, Inc., Smyrna, GA.

    The way I understand it that the frames are made in smyrna, the slides are finished in Austria due to the tennifer coating. They are for shipment to countries that can't receive arms from austria. I could see the USA becoming one of those, and the frames and slides could be made here. A lot of people would accept nickel plated slides made here if they could not be imported.
