  • As governor, Romney quadrupled gun licensing fees and vowed not to “chip away” at tough gun laws
  • In 2004, Romney signed permanent state-level ban on assault weapons that was mirrored after federal assault weapons ban.
  • In January 2006, Romney said he owned a gun – then two days later admitted he did not and the gun belonged to his son.
  • Romney bragged about being member of the NRA but later revealed he didn’t join until August 2006, just before launching his presidential campaign.
  • Romney recently said he’s “been a hunter pretty much all my life” but later admitted he hunted only twice in his life, later clarifying remarks by claiming he has hunted “small varmints … more than two times.”
