This is a huge deal because, first of all, I will have a tougher time finding a parking spot.
Secondly, an important national figure will be present: Ted Nugent!
Also, Mitt Romney (the GOP front-runner and possibly our next president) will be there, along with Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich (probably not future presidents), and the following other gentlemen: Congressman Darrell Issa, Senator Roy Blunt, Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, Hon. Ken Blackwell, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Governor Scott Walker, U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Governor Bobby Jindal, and Senator Chuck Grassley.
Of course, if the lines are too long at the celebrity booths, you could always mill around the
500 vendors displaying their firearms. (The spread at the convention
center will be so enormous that the NRA is offering a smart-phone app to help
you navigate it).
