    I saw this picture online, I figured I would get some of the boards feedback on it.

    Absolutely a concern to say the least.

    However:

    His opponent has said worse.

    His stances were in line with where he lived (zipcode populism)
    He would now be representing the US which has been solidly moving in the pro-gun, pro carry direction

    He gave specific commitment to Ted Nugent that he is not supporting endorsing or planning on any anti-gun activity as President.

    The Congress we have and expect to have in the coming election will not send him anything and he can't do much on his own.

    He has bigger fish to fry…the economy will keep him busy.


    As usual, not thrilled with Mittens but he's the least to worry about, BHO not facing re-election if he gets in.

    But duly noted, thanks, most of us are already aware, and keeping a watchful eye.

    I love how all the so called "conservatives" are trying to sweep Romneys record under the rug. Thats right, not what he's "said" but his RECORD, while Obama may have said some scary things pertaining to the 2nd Amendment Romney has not only said such things he has signed them into legislation! The most notable of them being the PERMANENT assault weapons ban he signed with a big smile on his face.

    OP, you are wise to be concerned with Mitt Romney and his record as am I. Don't let the "anybody but Obama" crowd talk you into thinking Romney's record isn't a big deal and that he's somehow different now in his sentiments towards the 2nd Amendment. Of course Mitt Romney has pledged "commitment to Ted Nugent that he is not supporting endorsing or planning on any anti-gun activity as President", he has proven time over time that he will say ANYTHING to get elected and then flip flop when it's convenient for him.

    I also think you should think about something else. Say Obama does get a second term, it's going to be impossible for him to push through any anti-gun legislation through the house and onto the soon to be controlled Republican Senate who will oppose him for no other reason than he's Obama. What do you think will happen if an anti-gun Republican president wants anti-gun legislation? Are you comfortable hoping that the Republican controlled Congress and soon to be Senate would oppose him? I'm not.

    BTW-I've dedicated my sig line to Mitt Romneys attitude towards our 2nd Amendment rights.

    So what do you think his stance would be when he moves to zip code 20500?

    1} Did congress send HW Bush a bill to ban import of "non-sporting" rifles???

    2} Did congress send Obummer a bill to block "re-importation" of 100s of thousands of M-1 Garands????

    3} Did congress pass a bill to make having a single M-16 part in a AR-15 illegal?????

    I don't trust the slicked back smooth talking SOB any further than I can throw him, but I'll take him over Obummer.

    A much, much, much better option than Obama.

    I take all that bad stuff as true, but it all means he is still a better choice than a second-term Obama in the white house. Not to mention, you are talking about legislation - the president's function is to sign, veto or ignore it...as was Romney's function as governor.

    It must be great, being a legislator, because the tendency people have to blame everything on 1 person means the governor/president gets the blame for all you do.

    I think you'll find little difference between the zip codes of his major corporate donors and those of Obama's.

    Are you saying or implying that we should vote for Obama?

    If you want to vote for the guy with a better record on gun control, then yes.

    Not only a better record, but less likely to succeed in pushing any gun control he does want. Although it's his last election, even the Democrats in Congress aren't going to let him "Bill Clinton" them out of their jobs.

    Republicans congresscritters however, have shown they will support their prez no matter what, and why shouldn't they? They know their voters will still vote for them despite being repeatedly screwed over, as long as they can point to a Democrat boogeyman to scare them all into line.

    If you think Obama is the last boogeyman you'll have to sell your soul to attempt to defeat, you're dreaming. The Republicans own you, and with the likes of Romney at the helm, they will push gun control where the Democrats can't.

    This election is going to be a tough one. It's the lesser of two evils sort of speak. A vote for Obama and someone who doesn't vote at all is giving Obama the upper hand.

    You think the next one will be easier? As we follow this path, the next two candidates will make Obama and Romney look like Reagan and Goldwater. You will pray for a Republican candidate as "conservative" as Obama is now, and you won't get it.

    Sound far fetched? Take a good look at who you're voting for in Romney.

    I'll take a first (and hopefully only) term mitt over a second term Barry. Not what I would like, but it is better.

    Republican presidents don't always get what they want. Remember Harriet Miers? The likely future picks from Barry are enough to steer clear of Barry.
