Romney: Yes on CCW National Reciprocity, No on AWB
Posted on September 13, 2012 by Dan Zimmerman

The NRA’s Chris Cox interviewed GOP hopeful Mitt Romney at dailycaller.com, asking about all things firearm-related. Clearly, the governor knew his audience. And unlike some, he avoided pissing off an important constituency in the middle of a campaign. That’s a big ‘no’ on new regulation of gun shows. Gun owner licensing? Nyet. Federal gun registration? As if. Hunting on public lands? He’s for it. UN weapons treaty? After a rambling non sequitur on making this another American century, he’s agin’ it. The candidate, though, was much more concise about national reciprocity and a new assault weapons ban . . .

Cox: Would you support legislation to provide national reciprocity for Right-to-Carry permit holders so that they can protect themselves when they’re traveling outside their home states?

Gov. Romney: Absolutely. Fundamental rights don’t disappear when we cross state borders, and self-defense is a fundamental right.

And given his track record in the Bay State, Mitt’s apparently had a road to Damascus conversion on scary black rifles.

Cox: Would you support the reimposition of a federal ban on semi-automatic firearms incorrectly called “assault weapons?”

Gov. Romney: No. I do not support any additional laws to restrict the right to keep and bear arms.

Would you care to name one, just one, politician who has not changed their position on something? Just asking for one here.

Personally, I like the idea that a man can grow, and his thoughts and positions can grow with him. Certainly, I've learned things that have changed my mind once, twice, or more...

Shucks...maybe he's just human, and has the capacity to learn. Or maybe, he realizes his old positions needed updating for the people he's seeking to serve. Food for thought, perhaps?

Paul went so far as to change parties, not just positions.

I wish someone would ask Romney why he banned guns in 2004, but in 2012 is opposed to the idea...
