Next NRA Convention is in Texas, the latest state to deal with mass shooting

The National Rifle Association will hold its 2022 annual meeting on May 27-29 in Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center. According to CNN, at this annual meeting, guest speakers include former President Donald Trump and many other conservative politicians.

At this event, Donald Trump, Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, and Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, also a Republican, are also scheduled to speak on Friday. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, both Republicans, will be at the meeting and scheduled to speak.

The NRA condemned the shooting in a statement Wednesday, calling it a “horrific and evil crime.”

“Although an investigation is underway and facts are still emerging, we recognize this was the act of a lone, deranged criminal,” the group said. “As we gather in Houston, we will reflect on these events, pray for the victims, recognize our patriotic members, and pledge to redouble our commitment to making our schools secure.”

The massacre is the deadliest shooting at a school since the Sandy Hook massacre in Connecticut in 2012 that left 26 people dead, including 20 children aged between 6 and 7 years old.

Almost every week, US citizens hear of mass shooting sprees on the news, and not only is this tiring for US citizens, it makes the US look like a lawless place to those in the international community, making the obsession with the second amendment by some look even more ridiculous.
