All you need to know about the presidential election.

Taken from the October 16, 2012 Presidential Debate

Barack Obama:
And so what I'm trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.

Mitt Romney:
Yeah, I'm not in favor of new pieces of legislation on -- on guns and taking guns away or making certain guns illegal.

Both Romney and Obama are masters of the Non-Answer, but it seems a real answer escaped both of them that night: Obama wants to ban scary looking guns that are responsible for fewer than 2% of the homicides in this country and are peacefully used by millions of shooters for recreation, hunting and competition. Mitt Romney does not.

With those few words, they have both made my decision on who to vote for that much easier. Hopefully that decision was made that much easier for you as well.
