    And especially those heavy weighted flashlights with the long handles. They're really dangerous although they don't seem to go off as often as the actual firearms.

    And some governors get nothing done in their states. Romney had anti gun legislation in front of him and got minimal gun protections for his citizens by going along with it; its called compromise and some guys about 230 years ago did bunches of it.

Governors all over the country veto bills they don't want regardless if those vetoes can or can't be easily overridden.

    A compromise implies that both sides get something.Taking something from someone and giving them a few crumbs is not a compromise.As a I said before this amounts to Romney stealing the whole loaf of bread and then acting like he is doing you a favor because he tossed you a few crumbs.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    With 87% of the legislature against him the "taking" was going to occur; he got something for nothing. Hence the reason the NRA supported the action.

    He helped do the taking and tossed a few crumbs.It doesn't matter if the NRA supported the action,the NRA sells out,which is why a lot of 2nd amendment supporters are GOA members instead of NRA members.

    Apparently you're not up on political events in the USA? Your candidate preference Romney lost the election.

    Considering how few guns are designed "for military use" that wouldn't ban much of anything.

    It would however ban certain handguns designed for Navy Seals that are perfectly good for civilians, among other things. Do yourself a favor, contact every gun manufacturer and ask them how many designers had "military use" in mind, rather than more specific purposes of use, then cease to reveal your ignorance with statements like this.

    The civilian version of the M16, the AR-15 was designed for civilian use. You fine with that?
