THE TOTAL GUN MANUAL: 335 ESSENTIAL SHOOTING SKILLS
The National Rifle Association on Thursday endorsed Mitt Romney minutes before the Republican presidential nominee prepared to speak to a loud crowd in the Shenandoah Valley full of NRA supporters.
Mitt Romney's campaign has stepped back from a major confrontation with fellow Republicans who were irate over what several ranking party officials had called a "power grab" by the presumptive nominee.
Gun owners now have one of their own on a presidential ticket. Rep. Paul Ryan recalled "deer camp over in Fairchild in Eau Claire County" in his remarks after being chosen as Mitt Romney's vice-presidential running mate. The Wisconsin Republican is an avid hunter who's been a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights.
In the aftermath of a tragedy like the shootings in Aurora, Colo., the conversation inevitably turns to the question of what could have been done to prevent such senseless slaughter. Faced with irrational aggression, it's harder than ever for people -- no matter their political perspectives -- to understand the views of those with whom they disagree.

And Barack Obama's White House pledges to safeguard the Second Amendment in its first official response to the deaths of at least 12 people in a mass shooting at a new Batman movie screening in suburban Denver.
"Everything you love about America, all the freedoms our forefathers fought for. All of it is under attack by Barack Obama. But the media won't tell you that," says National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre in an new video salvo from the group aimed at the 2012 presidential campaign.
