posted on April 28, 2017

As thousands of National Rifle Association members gather in Atlanta for the 146th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, one Georgia state representative has rolled out the welcome mat.

State Rep. Vernon Jones wrote in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “As Americans across the country celebrate a rebirth of freedom, it is an honor to welcome the members of the National Rifle Association to Atlanta for their 146th annual celebration of our Second Amendment freedoms.”

Jones pointed out that the 5 million members of the NRA are dedicated to promoting, preserving and protecting our right to keep and bear arms.

“This is a time for all of us to come together to celebrate our nation’s rebirth of freedom,” he concluded. “People will be coming from every city, state and hamlet in the United States. They will come with one anthem, ‘We are the NRA!’
