You need to read up on that. He signed a bill supported by the nra that made getting weapons easier...the compromise with the extremely liberal state legislature was to ban certain assault rifles. Of course I would expect you to get facts or anything. Talking points are the norm here.
Why is it that every time it gets brought up that Romney sounds and acts just like some leftest icon (Clinton in this case), people who claim to be opposed to expansive government do cartwheels trying to explain it away. Banning weapons does not make it eaiser to get them.
He acted, and sounded just like Pelosi, Fienstien, Clinton, Sarah Brady, Shawkowski, etc. LINK
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."
I wonder what the men who died on Lexington Green in April 1775 trying to stop the government from confiscating their store of weapons, including artillery at Concord, would have to say about this. I wonder if they would think it ok since the government was so kindly giving them a 90 day grace period to get their gun registration paper work in order.
People died to give us a free country, and it has been inherited by a bunch of gutless cowards who care for nothing but an illusion of safety, and licking the boots of their masters.
