Romney supports gun owners

Mitt Romney was at a gun show in Florida on Friday and said that he was "...proud to be among the many decent, law-abiding men and women who safely use firearms."

Romney said that "Americans should have the right to own and possess firearms as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution".

Romney is still seeking to attract the conservative base of the Republicans. However, his record as Governor and Senate Candidate in Massachusetts may come back to haunt him. Massachusetts has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, and although Romney did attempt to placate gun owners, his stance may not wash with many in the GOP.

However, apparently Romney attended the gun show with the Vice President of the NRA. His campaign might just be working.
