NASHVILLE Filing out of a ballroom after four hours of speeches by a dozen GOP hopefuls, National Rifle Association member Terry Brown said she was impressed by many of the speakers but was far from making up her mind about which potential candidate she might back in the next presidential election.

"I liked (Florida Sen. Marco) Rubio, but then again I've got to read up a lot more on how they stand on all the issues," said Brown, a 64-year-old office manager from Stafford, Va. "It's the first time I've ever heard some of them talk. I've got to hear more than the Second Amendment, because the next president is going to have to deal with so much more."

More than 3,000 NRA members on Friday heard from a slate of the Republican Party's most likely candidates at the NRA's annual meeting at Music City Center in Nashville.
