April 13 (Bloomberg) -- In his hunt for voters, Mitt Romney has talked about gunning for everything from “small varmints” to elk. It hasn’t eased nervousness among some firearms owners about the former Massachusetts governor’s fidelity to their issue.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee will confront those skeptics as he speaks today to the National Rifle Association in St. Louis. It’s a constituency Romney must win over as he tries to consolidate his party’s support before the November general election.
