    Q: [To Mitt Romney] As governor you signed into law one of the toughest restrictions on assault weapons in the country.

    A: Let’s get the record straight. First of all, there’s no question that I support 2nd Amendment rights, but I also support an assault weapon ban. Look, I’ve been governor in a pretty tough state. You’ve heard of blue states. In the toughest of blue states, I made the toughest decisions and did what was right for America. I have conservative values.

    Q: [To Mitt Romney] You signed the nation's first ban on assault weapons in Massachusetts and steeply increased fees on gun owners by 400%. How can you convince gun owners that you will be an advocate for them?

    ROMNEY: We had a piece of legislation that was crafted both by the pro-gun lobby and the anti-gun lobby. The pro-gun lobby said "this legislation allows us to cross roads with weapons when we're hunting that had not been previously allowed." And the day when we announced our signing, we had both the pro-gun owners and anti-gun folks all together on the stage because it worked. We worked together. We found common ground. My view is that we have the second amendment right to bear arms and my view is also that we should not add new legislation. I know that there are people that think we need new laws. I disagree with that. I believe we have in place all the laws we need. We should enforce those laws. I do not believe in new laws restricting gun ownership and gun use.

    If you purchase a Glock pistol, it will come from Glock's U.S. center in Smyrna, Georgia. No-matter where the weapon is purchased, it will include a warning from the Massachusetts Attorney Gerneral. This has been in place since Mr. Romney was governor of that fine state. Apparently Mr. Romney felt it was his place to warn all citizens in all 50 states, even though he has recently been quoted as saying gun laws should be the province of cities and states.

    The warning reads in part:

    WARNING FROM THE MASSACHUSETTS ATTORNEY GENERAL:

    This handgun is not equipped with a device that fully blocks use by unauthorized users. More than 200,000 handguns like this are stolen from their owners every year in the United States. In additionn, there are more than a thousand suicides each year by younger children and teenagers who get access to firearms. .................


    Interesting isn't it? Something one would expect from the hard left, not someone who claims to be a Republican. Romney's reply likely would be, "oh, you have to understand the state in which I governed."

    Mr. Romney, we are not expecting you to govern in Massachusetts. We are expecting you to govern America with strong conservative action, not excuses as to your previous liberal governing acts.

    If you want a copy of the insert that comes in the case with a Glock, e-mail me on RJ. I will scan the insert to pdf tomorrow AM.

    The Massachusetts insert by the way will be included in a mailing as we progress across America in the primary.

    All human societies have had weapons. That's all I have to say on that topic.
