After Announcing His Campaign for Senate, Mitt Romney Calls for Gun Control


The Salt Lake Tribune reported that while making his first speech as a Senate candidate, Romney said he’d support legislation to ramp up the federal database for firearms background checks.

“I think we can’t just sit and wait and hope for things to get better,” he said. “It is wrong and unacceptable for children in our schools to fear for their lives.”
