Giuliani changing his position on guns?

For a couple of weeks people were asking if Giuliani was switching positions on abortion (I don't really think that he was), but now I wonder whether the press will give him the same trouble on guns, where I actually believe that there is more of a change occurring. If I were convinced that Giuliani was really changing his views, I think that it would be an important advance for safety., But given the various links to videos that I have posted and other statements of his, I have a hard time that he really believes this. Would he put hundreds of dollar fees on free assembly or before someone could speak on an issue (that was the licensing fee in NYC for guns)? Would he require that newspapers register themselves?

"The Constitution of the United States in the Second Amendment gives you an individual right to bear arms; that individual right is as strong as your individual right to free speech, free assembly, being safe against unreasonable searches and seizures."

Given the way Giuliani views those other Constitutional freedoms, this statement probably doesn't mean anything anyway. This is a guy who views the Bill of Rights the way Gollum views Samwise Gamgee.

Election after election we see pandering by those running for office.

It's become a joke. A very unfunny one.

Giuliani has a record of supporting oppressive and unconsititional laws. If he isn't willing to live with his reputation then why did he go to the trouble of earning it?

Was he lying when he supported oppressive laws or is he lying now?
