4/29/11 - Here is video of a taped message Gov. Mitt Romney sent to the 2011 NRA Convention. Romney thanked the organization and members for all it does to defend the 2nd Amendment Rights of Americans. Romney called for adhering to the U.S. Constitution, and keeping the nation the way the Founders intended - where the people are sovereign rather than the government. Romney said, "I believe in America, I believe in Free Enterprise," and declared, "I don't apologize for America, because I believe in America. I believe in freedom and opportunity. I believe in the Constitution as it was written and intended by the Founders."
Romney seemed to take a veiled shot at Barack Obama toward the end by saying he joined with Americans who are "proud to place their hands over their hearts when they hear the strains of their National Anthem."
