I spent most of April 13 at America’s Center in downtown St. Louis. The New York Daily News hired me to cover the National Rifle Association convention, focusing on reaction to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s growing involvement in the anti-gun movement. My quest to gather opinions took me to the expo floor, where I took photos with my iPhone.
That’s also where I met Deke Rivers, “The Pistolero.”
My press pass afforded me the opportunity to Tweet live from the marquee event of the day one, the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum, featuring Mitt Romney, New Gingrich and Rick Santorum among others.
- Here’s my Storify treatment of the forum and convention, including news coverage and social media conversation.
