The headline says it all, “Alarm Grows Among Dems About Obama’s Chances“:

“It has taken months of bad news, but Democrats increasingly believe that President Obama might just lose his re-election bid.  The latest wake-up call comes in the form of a New York Times/CBS poll showing Republican Mitt Romney in the lead not just among registered voters overall, but with women and independents …”

That’s good, but I’m still not seeing the love for Romney.  I think his increasing numbers have more to do with disgust with Obama as opposed to support for Romney, especially with gun owners.  Romney needs to close the deal.  He could do that either by picking a solid gun guy as his running mate and/or supporting the reciprocity bill in Congress.  Just a a short and sweet statement like “As President I would sign H.R  822 into law.”  Anything more than that would come across as sucking up and not be believable considering his less than perfect record on the issue.

    Make no mistake about it. Romney is about as gun owner friendly as Obama. They are cut from the same cloth. Romney only joined the NRA recently-just prior to announcing his candidacy- and as governor, enacted the first state-wide ban on military style rifles, just as the federal ban was about to sunset. This ban, which puts restrictions on several types of rifles due to their cosmetic features is nonsense, and just another example of how anti-gun and anti 2A Romney is. Romney will do and say anything to get elected, but his record stands for itself. He is no friend to supporters of the 2nd Amendment, or to law abiding gun owners.
