Indianapolis, In. — Attorney General Curtis Hill welcomes President Trump, Vice President Pence and all attendees, members and supporters of the National Rifle Association to Indianapolis for the 148th Annual Meeting and Exhibits. This annual meeting is expected to attract more than 80,000 people to Indianapolis in support of the Second Amendment.
Attorney General Hill has consistently supported the right of all law-abiding Americans to safely and legally bear arms. In January of 2019, Attorney General Hill and officials from 22 other states asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a case regarding the rights of law-abiding individuals to carry firearms outside their homes. Attorney General Hill supports responsible and legal gun ownership in the state of Indiana and across the nation.
“As Attorney General, I took an oath to uphold the Constitution and protect the citizens of Indiana,” Attorney General Hill said. “Supporting the Second Amendment aligns with that oath, and I am happy to support and attend the NRA leadership convention here in Indianapolis.”
The NRA convention was last held in Indianapolis in 2014 and is set to return in 2023, which will mark the third time it will be held in Indianapolis in a decade. The convention is expected to bring an excess of $55 million to the city in revenue. The convention will host 15 acres of guns and gear. Guests will include members and supporters, elected officials, country music artists and others.
The convention occurs Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium. Registration is 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Indiana Convention Center. More information is available at the NRA’s website.
Alan Jackson and William Michael Morgan will perform at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday night.
