Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign confirmed today that the candidate now owns two shotguns — purchased since 2007, when Romney was forced to admit that he himself did not own any guns.

Asked earlier today at a town hall in Ohio about the Second Amendment, Romney said, “I have guns myself. I’m not going to tell you where they are.”
