Gun control: Mitt Romney and Barack Obama’s political record

•, By Matt Williams

The Colorado theatre shooting has put the two candidates for president on the spot about their stances on gun control

The tragic events that unfolded inside a Colorado movie theatre on Friday have prompted greater attention on the gun law stance of the two men fighting it out to lead the US.

Within hours of the news that a gunman had shot dead 12 and injured many more, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg presented President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney with a stark challenge over America’s loose restrictions on gun ownership.
“Maybe it’s time the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they’re going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country.”
A look at the White House rivals’ stance on the issue shows that both have evolved on the issue, but not in the way that those like Bloomberg would want.
