INDIANAPOLIS - The city is becoming packed with people who’ve come to show their support for the National Rifle Association as it kicks off its big 2014 event.
Seventy-thousand gun-rights supporters are expected to be downtown for the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits at the Indiana Convention Center. Everything begins at 9 a.m. Friday and lasts through Sunday.
About the same amount of people were expected to show up for the same event last year in Houston, and we’re told more than 86,000 ended up stopping by.
The major gun convention, featuring more than 600 firearm displays taking up roughly 400,000 square feet, comes with both support and opposition.
Top Indiana politicians will meet for a gun-rights forum Friday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
And on the other side of the gun debate, more than 100 mothers are expected to be at the Indiana War Memorial Saturday afternoon, marching for stricter gun laws.
We plan on covering all sides of the issue. Keep an eye on RTV6 and theINDYchannel.com Friday and all weekend for updates.
