Mitt “I Heart Assault Weapon Bans” Romney Running for President

[HTML1]

Reuters reports that Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has declared his intention to seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States. I reckon he’s four years too late. As Governor of Massive Taxes (a.k.a. Taxachusetts), as the eponymous author of Romney-care, he has about as much chance with resurgent conservatives as Joe Lieberman. Looking at the Mittster from the POV of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia, uh, no. Mass gun laws are some of the most needlessly restrictive in the entire country; as the video above indicates, he did sweet FA to move that ball forward. Backward? Whatever. Here’s an interchange with the moderator at the 2007 Republican Debate in South Carolina . . .

Q: 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.

And I have an eleven inch penis. Minus a few inches. Just sayin’ . . .
