Romney wins endorsement of National Rifle Association

Mitt Romney officially won the endorsement of the National Rifle Association on Thursday, a show of support that could help his campaign’s efforts to turn out voters on Election Day.

While Romney has repeatedly assured audiences of his strong support for the Second Amendment right to bear arms, the NRA had held off on officially backing the Republican nominee. During the GOP primary, the group expressed displeasure with Romney’s past support for gun control measures when he was governor of Massachusetts.

But Romney didn’t exactly clamor for the NRA endorsement either. In the aftermath of July’s deadly movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., Romney rejected calls for new gun control laws, but he also went out of his way to say he doesn’t agree with the NRA’s agenda on everything.

    Romney. I am pleased that he has the NRA endorsement, even proud of our organization. The “Brady Bunch” and others often claim that the NRA has a strangle hold of Congress. No, the NRA has and expreses the constance care to make sure that what they advise is true. This is a standard that the Brady Bunch cannot equal because it is not interested in truth, in fact, so much as they are interested in “do’in’ sump’ins’.s” And so it is that they cannot: the American people see through the veil of fog and fantasy sown and weaved by Brady and others, and vote for the truth, for the facts-of-life. And, thus it is, so do the members of Congress. Is THAT a starnglehold of Congress? No. It is Congress having the weird capacity to attend to the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution in their attempt to follow IT. They do so today in the face of a President who acts independent of Congress. How do YOU interpret that? I say it is tyranny. I say it is the first step toward dictatorship. I say “Liberty!” under the assured adherence to the United States Constitution and the Bil of Rights that guarantees our freedoms. I say “Freedom!” and insist that this is the only path open to honest Americans.
