I don't think it matters if its McCain or Obama as the next POTUS, they both have bad records on guns and if McCain picks Romney as his VP then we have a choice between two VP's that are the biggest gun haters to pick from.
How do I get off this ride?
McCain said he was open to voting for an assault weapon ban, depending on the details.

In 2004, Gov. Romney signed a firearms reform bill that made permanent the ban on assault weapons as well as clarified and insured other rights and responsibilities for gun owners.
Principles that Obama supports on gun issues:
Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.
Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms.
Joe Biden wrote the damn assault weapons ban, nuff said.
