    Multiple Mitt's answer depends on who asks him and which day of the week it is. Eventually he'll give every answer to every question.

    Do I have to remind you YET AGAIN, what Obama's AG said about the adminstration's position on guns in 2009?

    I don't think congress will send a new assault weapons ban to president Romney, and if they did, I don't think he would sign it.

    Due to the popularity of guns in this country, gun control is rapidly becoming another "third rail of politics", just like social security.

    That doesn't mean there won't be increased restrictions on firearms and ammo.

    I think the new tactic of the anti-gunners will be the banning of certain types of ammo, ban internet sales of ammo and guns, and place a huge federal tax on the sale of guns and ammo.

    Making firearms expensive and hard to get will serve the same purpose as an outright ban.

    I don't see any of that happening for the same reasons you cited.

    Guns are just too damn popular.

    Question:

    Has Mitt himself publicly stated that he will not sign an AWB if elected? Is he on record saying this in straight terms?

    I don't particularly care what Nugent thinks. A big enough check and I'm sure he'd say anything he was paid to say.

    You don't believe Romney is against a gun ban yet, you claim Obama will not ban guns in spite of his assurance he will.

    Is this directed at me? If so, I don't know what you're talking about. I'm pretty certain both would sign an AWB if it came to the desk. Just like GWB said he would. And Clinton actually did. etc etc.

    I want to know if Romney himself has ever been on record saying he will not sign an AWB if elected President? Simple question. This seems to be missing from all the talk about where he stands on 2A and his AWB history. It wouldnt be difficult and would be beneficial to his campaign to state this in clear terms since it's such a controversial part of his record.

    Well, I am sure I don't want him in the White House and his man as Attorney General.

    "On February 25, 2009 newly sworn-in Attorney General Eric Holder repeated the Obama administration's desire to reinstate the Federal Assault Weapons Ban.[18] The mention came in response to a question, about 20 minutes into a joint press conference with DEA Acting Administrator Michele Leonhart, discussing efforts to crack down on Mexican drug cartels. Attorney General Holder said: "[...] there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons." (from wikipedia)

    Wasting votes on a third party won't get them out.

    Same blah, blah. Different blah, blah.

    It a'int gonna happen no matter what trolls say.

    Now if Obama gets re-elected that's another story. I wouldn't put anything past that socialist/statist sum bish.

    I just saw the other thread on this from today. I guess this is the best statement we'll get. Yes that's good Mitt, but you aren't saying that you wouldn't sign the law.

    From Romney's website:

    Like the majority of Americans, Mitt does not believe that the United States needs additional laws that restrict the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. He believes in the safe and responsible ownership and use of firearms and the right to lawfully manufacture and sell firearms and ammunition.

    As president, Mitt will work to expand and enhance access and opportunities for Americans to hunt, shoot, and protect their families, homes and property, and he will fight the battle on all fronts to protect and promote the Second Amendment.

    .....he does not support adding more laws and regulations that do nothing more than burden law-abiding citizens while being ignored by criminals.

    Whereas Obama and the Democrats are campaigning on re-instating the AWB, banning private gun transfers and sales, and regulating ammo purchases.

    He's repeatedly said in both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns that he won't sign any new gun control laws.

    Explicit example:

    I do not believe we need new legislation. I do not support any new legislation of an assault weapon ban nature, including that against semiautomatic weapons. We have laws in place that, if they’re implemented & enforced, will provide the protection and the safety of the American people. I do support the right of individuals to bear arms, whether for hunting purposes or for protection purposes or any other reasons. That’s the right that people have.

    He's still not saying he won't sign it into law. Claiming to not support new gun control doesn't equate to not signing it. First, an AWB is not a new law. Been there, done that. Second, Obama signs laws he says he doesn't support all the time. NDAA for example. With politicians, what they don't say is at least as important as what they do say.

    I want to see him state explicitly that he will not sign an AWB as President. I don't care what he says he supports. That would only be worth something if he had a consistent record in the first place. Go on record with an unequivocal statement about what you would do as President.

    You're really being tedious at this point.

    It's clear he won't sign it. Troll elsewhere.
