Santorum, Rmoney, Rick, and Cantor are speakers at NRA conference. Interesting but not

surprising.

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.
Campaign Instagrams: #2012Unfiltered moves to March: The race for the Republican nomination intensified further as the candidates battled it out in crucial Super Tuesday primaries. Our staff, armed with iPhones and the app Instagram, trailed the candidates across the United States, documenting the scenes along the way using the hashtag #2012Unfiltered.

The timing of Romney’s appearance -- three days after his chief competitor, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, suspended his campaign -- will work to his advantage as voters now see a two-man race between him and President Barack Obama.

Or does he still use one of his son's guns when hunting "small varmints" (if he ever does)
