The Republican platform on guns goes further than the last two presidential conventions.

Republicans have strengthened the pro-gun-rights portion of their party platform, including a new call for unlimited bullet capacities in guns, in a defiant response to criticism that followed recent mass shootings at a Colorado cinema and an Arizona congresswoman’s gathering.

The 2012 platform, approved this week by GOP convention-goers who nominated Mitt Romney for president, also endorses “stand your ground” rights for gun owners.
