Maybe I'm a little behind the times, but learned today that Romney PERMANENTLY banned all assault-style weapons in Massachusetts when he was Governor there. Wonder what he'll do if he becomes President? Food for thought.....
Here's one of the articles I read:

Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns.
Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen's groups and gun safety advocates. These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new law ensures these deadly weapons, including AK-47s, UZIs and Mac-10 rifles, are permanently prohibited in Massachusetts no matter what happens on the federal level.
We are pleased to mark an important victory in the fight against crime, said Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey. The most important job of state government is ensuring public safety. Governor Romney and I are determined to do whatever it takes to stop the flood of dangerous weapons into our cities and towns and to make Massachusetts safer for law-abiding citizens.
The new law also makes a number of improvements to the current gun licensing system...
girlbiker, Question. Where would Israel be now, defense wise if they had never have gotten weapons from The USA? It is true that Israel does not want American Troops and I do not remember hearing anyone saying that we should send troops there.
Another question. Has anyone ever ask you where you stood on support for Israel? No one has ever ask me and yet they always come up with a total of voices that they say thinks one way.
You are entitaled to your own thoughts about everything. Just as ecveryone else.
However I say that we must know beyond thought or else it could be the greatest mistake of our future.
Read what Ron Paul had to say.
Remember what Obama said that those that supported him failed to even hear or worry about. We can not take a chance even with Ron Paul without knowing for sure what he meant. No time for Guessing here.
Even members of Israels own government have stated that they do not believe Iran to be an imminent nuclear threat. Somehow I feel that Iran is far more threatened of us than we need be of them. Anyhow, I am not ready to face both Russia and China breathing down our necks should someone decide to give in to an itchy trigger finger. Let's take a stance of defense rather than offense on this one for the time being, I say.
Also, if people are really interested in learning why Iran has such as issue with us, they should research the 1953 US sponsored Iran coup d'etat. I am not the type to badmouth my country but, I have to admit when we're wrong, we are wrong. This is just one example of how our foreign interference often get us into more trouble in the long run. Just my opinion anyhow.
I agree 100% with you on that one.
WE HAVE THE BEST CONGRESS THAT MONEY CAN BUY!!!
AND THEY HAVE BEEN BOUGHT BY ALL THESE COMPANIES.
I agree with both of you on that !!!
except for Ron Paul who has never been bought.
Both of Ron's eyes are open. He sees what most people don't want to see.
Mow think about this? why should Israel be allowed to have a vast arsenal of nukes and yet the neighbors can't? Look at the destruction Israel has brought on its neighbors and our country as well. Google the MASSAD And why would we allow dual citizenship of our congressmen and senators? Illegal right? yet there are more than half of them have a dual citizenship with Israel .... Now why do you think we keep on giving millions of dollars to such a rich country? '
Google USS LIBERTY and see how loyal Israel is to the US.. Just do a lot of reading and then look at Ron Paul's outlook..... I think you will see a very sensible and sane sight....
Look at it another way... Who gave us the right to control other countries? Were we elected? Were we appointed? or did we just assume the power for profit?????
BRAINWASHED--THEY DO HAVE A RIGHT TO HAVE NUKES, THEY ARE A SOVEREIGN NATION. ALSO LETS THINK FOR A SECOND--DON;T YOU THINK IF THEY WANTED NUKES THEY COULD GET THEM FROM THERE ALLY RUSSIA. ALSO, FOR A SECOND, DO YOU THINK THEY COULD BE BRAINWASHING THE MAJORITY OF AMERICAN PEOPLE TO GET US ON THERE SIDE FOR A WORLD WAR? IS THIS POSSIBLE OR ARE MY 2 YEARS WORTH OF HOMEWORK FOR NOTHING, EVEN THOUGH I SET OUT TO SEEK THE TRUTH?
Greg Russel,, i think you have it in reverse!! Mitt Romney will be just like Obummer,, if he manages to steal the nomintion from Ron Paul, i will bet that within 1 year you will be eating your words! Ron Paul is honest and wants the Constitution to mean what it says and Romney will just lead us down that do what they want ignoring the Constitution all along the way! That is why 95 percent of our Military back Ron Paul and Romney hasnt got any Military backing at all! I dont agree with Ron Paul on everything but you can bet i will vote for honesty before i vote for a liar again!
Unfortunately there IS another side of the Ron Paul coin. An open mind is required to see it. But it's there no matter how much gleam you allow yourself to see.
If that is the worst you can come up with against Ron Paul, god help us.
Seriously Congressional Gold Medals????
There are how many things that we can bring up about Romney, and we are splitting hairs over this??
It depends on what the definition of is is.
