    Romney’s sadly mistaken if he thinks he’s going to get any ‘traction’ from this, this is nothing more than preaching to the choir.

    If Romney has any chance of winning, he’ll need a significant number of democrats who voted for Obama to vote for him, and that’s just not gong to happen. And playing the ‘gun card’ is a waste of time.

    Democrats and liberals consider Heller/McDonald settled law, ‘gun control’ is a dead issue, a losing issue they won’t touch; it’s no longer a political weapon republicans can use.

    Ignorant nonsense, the Second Amendment is now an issue for the courts to address, a president has no way of directly impacting the issue one way or the other. And new threats to Second Amendment rights come from state and local jurisdictions, not the Federal government.

    It is not like there are events that really have occured. I think what Romney is doing is wooing his base that he upset

    Well he did vote yes on the Illinois hand gun ban. The one that was overturned, you know it was "unconstitutional". So yea, he's all about protecting the second amendment.

    The whole point of fast and furious was to use the carnage as a means to eliminate guns.

    Brian Matthews reported that Romney only used the word "gun" ONCE while he was addressing the NRA.

    I wonder why he thought that was significant? Could it possibly be that Brian Matthews is trying to sew discontent among conservative republicans??

    How many times should one say, "gun" while addressing the NRA before Brian Matthews feels it is not newsworthy?

    Fucking MSM.

    Obama getting caught on a live Mic with the Russians opened this door. Romney has a good point
    As the path devolps, in time this will become the reason as to why

    "if he is to deal with russians after the election, what else will he do" something like that
    Legitimate

    It appears Romney hasn't changed his stance on the second amendment. Do you have a link showing his restrictive gun ownership control??

    Obama voted yes on a gun control law that was overturned because it was unconstitutional.
