The National Rifle Association has made their support for a Mitt Romney presidency official. Yesterday NRA leaders David Keene and Wayne LaPierre hosted a rally for Romney and Ryan while slamming President Obama for his anti-Second Amendment agenda and handling of Operation Fast and Furious.

“Virginia is ground zero – the front line of this election. This is where the race could be won or lost. This is where the difference can be made. This is where gun owners must make that difference.” said LaPierre.

“Today, we live in an America that is getting harder to recognize every day led by a President who mocks our values, belittles our faith, and is threatened by our freedom.” said Cox. “So on behalf of the four million men and women of the National Rifle Association, representing tens of millions of NRA supporters, it is my honor to announce the NRA’s endorsement of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for President and Vice President of the United States.”
