Question 9: Assault weapons

Obama said he will do more when it comes to enforcement of guns and seeing if he can get automatic weapons that kill people out of hands and impact communities.

Romney said he was not in favor of new legislation to make guns illegal but that he agreed with the president in that enforcing gun laws is necessary. He said the country must also try to change its culture of violence, which comes from a two-parent household and schools.

Romney also mentioned the failure of “Fast and Furious,” an operation that exploded under the Obama administration. It allowed the sale of guns to illegal straw buyers in hopes to track Mexican drug cartels.
