    Maybe I feel a little better about having to vote for Romney to get rid of the turd that's presently in the White House.

    The Massachusetts Congress is 85% Democrat, so if he had vetoed the renewal of the AWB, it would've been renewed by the next governor. Knowing this, he agreed to sign it, but added numerous pro-gun provisions to it. Romney actually decreased the number of gun laws in Mass.

    So he knew it was wrong, yet let it pass anyways, good to know he will cave under pressure and not do what's right.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of gun owners who apply that kind of simple thinking to legal issues. If the NRA approached gun control with the "all or nothing" attitude you seem to prefer, we'd be carrying knives with our CCW permits right now.

    You responded to a post making it clear that Romney had a choice between a gun control law and a worse gun control law and he picked the one that was more favorable to guns.

    Your attitude is pretty similar to those who are support Obama to spite Romney, by voting third party or refusing to vote. I'm sure you count yourself as one.

    Let's be honest, you know what is going to happen if Obama wins another 4 years.

    Is Mitt Romney a die hard, gun toting supporter of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms? No he isn't. However he leans more in the gun owners directions and he will feel pressure and influence from the NRA and other pro gun groups.

    Didn't Obama say the same thing?

    So if I dislike Romney, I must support Obama? It has nothing to do with all or nothing. To claim more gun laws aren't the answer, while your state has some of the worst laws, is hypocritical. It's akin to saying raising taxes aren't the answer, yet signing bills of raising taxes every budget year.

    Democrat like Jim Doyle had no problems vetoing bills they didn't agree with. It's one of the reasons Wisconsin took so long acquire CCW. If all we have are politicians whom don't stand up for their beliefs, and our constitution, we keep heading in the same direction we already are.

    Name a bill that has passed and limited our firearm freedoms under Obama. It's the same scare tactics they've used forever. If you think our country will be any different because Romney is in office, you're delusional.

    Bravo!!! I couldn't say better myself. However, that's not with this country is all about. Oh no, this country is about you're being either a Republican or a Democrat and you better vote the party line because otherwise the American civilization will collapse.

    That's not the right question, and you know it.

    I can name two Supreme Court justices nominated by Obama who got confirmed and who are very anti gun.

    What do you say about that? Or did you forget.

    Right, because how many extra votes would either Nominee earn if they starting saying that we need more gun control laws months before the election? Let's use our brains a bit here....

    You claimed that neither will rock the boat with the gun rights issues. I agreed.

    And I made a sarcastic remark addressing Romney's or any other Repub politicians' stand on gun rights.
