The NRA has been there for us and we’ll be there for them at the NRA Annual Meeting!
When someone goes to bat for another person time and again without any expectations or strings attached we call that “loyalty”. When someone fights for others’ rights without any expectations or strings attached we call that “commitment”. The NRA has gone to bat and fought for the rights of legal gun owners in America since 1871. Now that’s loyalty and commitment, unchallenged.
Now it’s time for us to return the favor. The NRA has always been in the current administration’s crosshairs as well as that of progressives on the left. But their boldness has increased exponentially since the re-election of Barack Obama in November of 2012. Combine that with one of the most despicable exploitations of an American tragedy in our history of the Newtown murders and you now have a gun control group that went from being bold to downright cocky. And the fact that they recognize the NRA as the #1 defender of our 2nd Amendment rights and a leading threat to their agenda has not only enhanced the NRA’s position in the gun control lobby’s crosshairs, but unbelievably made them the outright “Public Enemy #1” as they’re somehow being made to be the bad guy in murders across the land simply because they are protecting our Constitutional rights as legal, innocent gun owners. I know the logic seems twisted, but it’s coming from a twisted group of misguided individuals whose goal is not to protect America, but to push a political agenda. And still, the NRA stands firm.
On May 3, 2013 the NRA will kick off its 142nd NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits at the George R. Brown Convention Center in the heart of downtown Houston, TX. With over 550 exhibitors covering over 400,000 square feet of exhibit hall space, educational seminars, celebrities, and fun filled special events, there will surely be something for any gun-loving, 2nd Amendment-protecting American who shows up.
And we’re proud to announce that Legally Armed America will be there in full support of our friends at the NRA. Chad and Paul from Legally Armed America will be out and about meeting friends and shaking hands on Saturday, May 4. Please come out if you can and look us up. We’d love to meet so many of our friends who we’ve communicated with online for so long and never had the pleasure to meet.
Another cool thing is that throughout the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits event, conceal carry firearms are permitted in the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton Americas-Houston Hotel. (When carrying your firearm, remember to follow all federal, state and local laws.) So it’s pretty much guaranteed that no harm will come to a single person at the event or even in the parking lots in the area because criminals will surely stay the heck away!
After all the NRA has done for us legal gun owners, let’s return the favor by showing our support for them by showing up in droves to the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, TX May 3-5, 2013. We at Legally Armed America will see you there!
