Romney Wins Some Votes, If Not All Hearts, At NRA Meeting

Some 70,000 people are attending the National Rifle Association's annual convention in St. Louis this weekend. It's hard to find any who support Barack Obama.

But that doesn't mean gun owners are completely sold on Mitt Romney. He may be the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, but many NRA members still harbor some doubts.

"I'd really like to see someone more pro-gun, but if he's all we got, he's all we got," said Kenny Hoehgesang, a retired power plant worker from Schnellville, Ind.

Romney sought to dispel any lingering concerns about his support for some gun-control laws as Massachusetts governor during his address to the NRA on Friday. He described President Obama and his potential Supreme Court picks as threats to gun owners' rights, which he vowed to protect.

Give some George Wallace-like denouncement of George Zimmerman's "politically-motivated persecution"

3. He's a complete phoney and panderer

I bet if one of those varmints he likes to shoot would run across the stage, he'd squeal like a little girl.
