On a campaign stump for Mitt Romney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told Peter D’Oench of CBS4-Miami that gun control would not have deterred the Colorado gunman and prevented the shooting that took 12 lives and left 58 with wounds.

Really? Rudy has as many different positions on important issues as Willard. More importantly Rudy is stunningly wrong! As an Assistant US Attorney, and as Mayor of New York City, Rudy was an outspoken proponent of gun control including the assault weapon ban. When he was still marginally sane, Rudy said:

With your support and encouragement, the U.S. House of Representatives
took a critical step toward getting assault weapons off the streets, out
of neighborhoods, and out of the hands of criminals.

Limits on assault weapons, high capacity magazines and bullet accumulation could have saved lives and reduced the carnage. Shame on Rudy and Romney for pandering to the whack jobs on the far right.
