Quartz reports that this year's big NRA convention will take place at the beginning of May in Houston. It looks to be a real fun time:
“Confirmed speakers include [Texas] Governor Rick Perry, former Congressman Asa Hutchinson, Governor Bobby Jindal, Senator Ted Cruz, former Senator Rick Santorum, and more.” Political commentator Glenn Beck will be the featured speaker at the “Stand and Fight” rally.
Bring Junior along. “The ever-popular air gun range is a top attraction – both for participants and observers. NRA offers diverse seminars throughout the three-day convention, including methods of concealed carry; hunting; Firearms Law; the Grassroots Workshop; and Refuse to Be a Victim®.”
Based on how many people were injured during Gun Appreciation Day back in January, I think we could be looking at a world's record for accidental shootings in Houston this year. So let's place our bets now:
How Many People Will Be Accidentally Shot During the NRA Convention?
