Mitt Romney is seeking to assure gun-rights activists that he's squarely on their side.

The presidential contender headlines a who's who of prominent Republicans scheduled to speak Friday at the National Rifle Association's annual convention. And he perhaps has the most to
prove.

As a candidate for the Senate in Massachusetts, Romney once assured voters that he didn't line up with the NRA. He has since signed up for a lifetime NRA membership and promotes himself as a
strong supporter of Second Amendment rights.

The NRA has set a goal of ousting Democratic President Barack Obama in this year's elections. As Obama's likely opponent, Romney
hopes to reap the rewards of the NRA's network of more than 4
million members.
