Willard is gonna tell us 'bout huntin small varmints with assault rifles again?
Does he own as many guns as he has cars? houses? horses?
Romney, 65, also backed a ban on certain assault weapons in a 1994 federal anti-crime bill. As governor, he signed legislation that raised gun license fees from $25 to $100 to help close a state budget deficit, while also extending license durations to mitigate the increased cost, according to a Boston Globe report.
Ahead of today’s speech, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt tweaked Romney using similar lines of attack as Santorum.
“The president’s record makes clear the he supports and respects the Second Amendment,” LaBolt said in a statement, referring to the constitutional measures protecting the right to bear arms. “Mitt Romney is going to have difficulty explaining why he quadrupled fees on gun owners in Massachusetts then lied about being a lifelong hunter in an act of shameless pandering. That varmint won’t hunt.”
