Ahead of the NRA’s 152nd Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Ind., this coming weekend, lawmakers in the Indiana Senate passed a resolution honoring this nation’s oldest civil-rights organization.
“Since 2016, the NRA has refused to be a victim. Seminars have helped more than 100,000 men and women develop their own personal safety plan using common-sense strategies. For more than 150 years, the NRA has assisted millions of individuals in the United States and abroad in learning firearm safety through its own various programs,” said Sen. James Tomes (R), one of the resolution’s authors.
“This is a wonderful group doing good things, and I was pleased to be one of the authors of the constitutional-carry bill which was passed last year,” said Sen. Blake Doriot (R). “And I hope more of you will join me and Sen. Tomes on this resolution.”
“I want to personally thank you for your service and dedication to promoting the Second Amendment rights of our citizens, not only in Indiana but across the United States of America,” said Tomes to NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.
Other members of the Indiana Senate also spoke in favor of the resolution, including Sen. Jim Buck (R), who said, “It’s one of the most inclusive organizations there is… [It] doesn’t matter your faith, doesn’t matter your color, doesn’t matter your gender, because they all strive under one common bond: to protect the Second Amendment.”
The 2023 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits will take place from April 14-16 at the Indiana Convention Center and will feature over 14 acres of firearms and gear from the most-popular companies in the industry, as well as appearances from multiple key figures in our fight for freedom.
