Rocky Anderson on Gun Control
Justice Party challenger for President; former mayor of Salt Lake City
ROMNEY: I'm not in favor of new pieces of legislation on guns and taking guns away or making certain guns illegal. We have to make enormous efforts to enforce the gun laws that we have.
ANDERSON: We've seen just another instance of Mitt Romney completely flip-flopping on where he stood as governor of Massachusetts, to please the likes of the National Rifle Association. We need to end the stranglehold of the NRA on our government. There's one reason for assault weapons, and that is to kill as many people as quickly as possible. There was a federal ban on assault weapons. It expired in 2004. Obama promised four years ago to support the permanent reinstatement of that ban. That would have been the right thing to do, but he hasn't done it. Neither of these candidates will do the right thing when it comes to ending the influence of the NRA and, once and for all, getting assault weapons off the streets of this country.
