MiddleAgedKen, That was a good question. I wouldn't be surprised if Romney didn't know anything about Sullivan prior to your question. alsaqr, Thanks for participating earlier. Again, this thread is not about voting for Romney. It's meant to increase the awareness of the importance of this issue amongst the candidates. Some of them already get it. Romney doesn't. He thinks that people who want "assault weapons" are just a small fringe of the population. And with the reluctance I have seen on this board of all places to clue him in I'm not surprised in the least he feels that way.
