Romney Owns Two Shotguns, Campaign Says

After 2007 flub, Romney arms himself — literally. For hunting varmints?

Posted on

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."

In 2007, Romney said on an podcast that "‘I have a gun of my own," but two days later said his son Josh owns two guns that he occasionally used. Now Romney has a pair in his own name, a campaign aide said.
