When All Else Fails

Pro-Gun People Can Relax With Mitt Romney Watching Their Backs

by Karen De Coster

According to this ditz on Human Events, Mitt Romney is good for gun owners. He’s so good, in fact, it’s worth writing about. My eyes immediately dropped from the headline to the bottom of the column where I read this statement from the writer: “As we say in the conservative, internet realm – ABO – Anybody but Obama.” At that point, I almost predicted the entire article in between.

Ahh, yes, I keep forgetting that there is supposed to be a difference between the Republicrats and the Demopublicans, especially on stuff like guns and welfare. Here is a quote from the writer, Raquel Okyay (please resist laughing and give the lady some pity for her ignorance):

Republican nominee hopeful, Mitt Romney, may very well be the next President of the United States. If so, gun rights advocates can relax a sigh of relief.

Miss Okyay goes on and on to supposedly cite Romney’s heroic, pro-gun record over the years. She even dares to cite a Romney campaign speech(!) as “proof” of his pro-gun stance.

Then there’s David Codrea, a guy who spends a lot of time exposing the lies of politicians who try to pull the “pro-gun” scam in public when the facts show otherwise. Codrea, in his latest column, “Romney SHOULD Make Conservatives Squirm,” reminds us of the real Mitt Romney who signed into law a weapons ban in 2004.

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.

And then there’s the Mitt Romney of 2002 who bragged about tough gun laws in Massachusetts. Watch for yourself.
