Concerns with Mitt Romney

Wanted to let everyone know about Mitt's 2nd Amendment record in Massachusetts.

*When the Federal ban expired Mitt enacted a similar State ban in Massachusetts.

*Mitt's bill went much further then the Brady Bill. High cap magazine ban with no legal transfer for anyone holding a grandfathered high cap mag, (MA State law that forbids sale or transfer of granfathered high cap mags.)

*Many guns, including Glocks, were banned and still currently are banned, (it's ok for MA LEO to carry them but not citizens.)

*Even though Black powder firearms are not covered by FID/LTC permits in MA, (as intended by BATF,) Mitt's bill/law requires an FID or LTC to buy or possess powder, caps... So in fact you do need a gun permit in MA to own or shoot black powder, (also the black powder rifle has to be a copy of 1899, not an inline or similar newer blackpowder rifles, pistols require a gun permit.)

*Many States honor the gun permits of other States. No other State honors Massachusetts because MA won't honor any other State.

*It is illegal to hunt big game in MA with a handgun

*It is illegal to hunt squirrels and rabbits in zone 10 (large area of MA,) with a .22lr.

*Transporting and storing firearms in MA is obscene due to the laws governing how you do it.

*The list goes on and on..................

That's not very inspiring.
The uncomfortable question common to all who have had revolutionary changes imposed on them: are we now to accept what was done to us just because it was done?

Mitt is not my first choice, but if it comes down to Mitt or Obama that is a no brainer. It will be Mitt.
Ecclesiastes 12:13  ¶Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

I would take Hillary OR Rham at this point over Obama for a lot of reasons. Still though Mitt is not my first republican choice by far.
