McCain criticizes Obama during NRA Convention speech

John McCain says Barack Obama could put the country in danger.  In Louisville Friday, McCain criticized Obama for his willingness to meet with the leader of Iran.

The audience at the Kentucky Exposition Center gave no standing ovation or enthusiastic applause to anything McCain said.  It was polite at best.

Four days before the Kentucky primary, McCain criticized Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on foreign policy "and" gun issues.

John McCain, the presumed Republican nominee, told his Louisville audience he supports a slow withdrawal of troops from Iraq over several years.  "A premature withdrawal would be reckless for our security and our values."

Barack Obama wants a faster pull-out and calls McCain's view of foreign policy "naive and irresponsible."  McCain responded back.

McCain spoke to the National Rifle Association's national convention.  The NRA has criticized McCain for supporting background checks for sales at gun shows -- and for his campaign finance law that restricts how they give money to candidates for office.  But McCain opposes gun control, something Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have supported.  "If either Senator Obama and Senator Clinton is elected president, the rights of law-abiding gun owners will be at risk."

Many in the crowd said they'll vote McCain in November, even if he's not completely to their tastes.

John McCain said nothing about the economy in his speech Friday. 

The NRA Convention runs through the weekend.
