Another Reason to Be Glad Romney LostSubmitted by theanswerto1984... on Sun, 12/30/2012 - 15:29
Dare we even imagine where we'd be on the gun-control front if Romney had won the presidency?
Those of us on this blog know there's no difference between Romney and Obama. In politics, perception is everything.
Republican presidents often deal more damage than Democrats. Romney signed a semiautomatic weapons ban into law while he was Governor of Massachusetts. If he were now president-elect, do you think the House Republicans would be opposing any weapons ban that he might have in the works? Or do you think they'd be falling all over themselves to sign onto it, given that it came from a "conservative," law-and-order Republican?
With Obama back in for another four years, at least we have a chance of defeating Feinstein's bill - if for no reason other than petty partisan bickering. Write or fax your congressman and give him some rational arguments for not voting to eviscerate the Second Amendment.
