Mitt's Gun Problem

John Aravosis loves Mitt more than I do. He caught some great lines from the Mittster.

We have a gun in one of our homes. It's not owned by me, it's owned by my son, but I've always considered it sort of mine.
Anyone else snort smoothie out of their nose with that one? The orange-strawberry concoction burns sort of like the pains to which Mitt has gone to sound super-duper conservative for the super-duper redstate crowd. Seriously, I hope Republicans fall for that trap in the primary, because it's not going to happen in the general. The gun-totting, buy-beer-at-the-gas-station crowd isn't going to find his "[I joined the NRA] within the last year," but "I signed up for a lifelong membership" nonsense. Mitt being gun ho for guns is as credible as Dick Cheney's master weapon-wielding skillz. Would anyone feel safe hunting some doves with Mitt, either?

not to mention that his comment points out a serious problem with gun ownership, and that is gun posession. has mitt even applied for a gun license? and yet he posesses this weapon and considers it his own. maybe the militia types will like this loose legality, but lotsa middle of the road repubs and others will be uncomforatble.

He's a hypocrite through and through.

Mike Huckabee was the first governor in the nation to get a carry and conceal license, Jim Webb owns and carries a handgun...here we have Democrat and Republican who respect 2nd amendment rights, and here we have Mitt who is a poser.
