Unbelievable. Caving in. People are gonna have to regrow their stones.

Cant have the NRA in TX. Bet they could have it here in OK with no issues.

And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the captain did too

Important Announcement: NRA Annual Meeting Cancellation

FAIRFAX, Va. - Due to concern over the safety of our NRA family and community, we regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting & Exhibits. This cancellation applies to all events and meetings that were scheduled in Houston. We will provide future notification regarding a rescheduled date for the annual Meeting of Members.

We make this difficult decision after analyzing relevant data regarding COVID-19 in Harris County, Texas. We also consulted with medical professionals, local officials, major sponsors & exhibitors, and many NRA members before arriving at this decision. The NRA Annual Meeting welcomes tens of thousands of people, and involves many events, meetings, and social gatherings. Among the highlights of our annual meeting are acres of exhibit space featuring the latest and greatest firearms, the display of countless accessories, and the offering of adventures and group gatherings that many travel hundreds, and some even thousands, of miles to experience. We realize that it would prove difficult, if not impossible, to offer the full guest experience that our NRA members deserve.

The NRA's top priority is ensuring the health and well-being of our members, staff, sponsors, and supporters. We are mindful that NRA Annual Meeting patrons will return home to family, friends and co-workers from all over the country, so any impacts from the virus could have broader implications. Those are among the reasons why we decided to cancel our 2021 event.

We would like to thank our members, attendees, exhibitors, and staff for their understanding and support. We are grateful for the many contributions of the George R. Brown Convention Center, state and local officials, community organizers, area hotels, and countless event venues across Houston. We receive enormous support from Houston and the State of Texas - and we hope to return to the Bayou City for a full annual meeting experience.

The NRA looks forward to a Celebration of Freedom in Louisville in May 2022. In the meantime, we will support many other NRA local events and smaller gatherings - in a manner that is protective of our members and celebrates our Second Amendment freedom.

We wish continued health and safety to our entire NRA family.
~NRA~

They had no choice the major exhibitors were pulling out because of covid. Plus, the City of Houston probably pulled their permits.

I’m sure it had nothing to do with the desire to avoid answering to the members regarding Wayne’s wasteful spending and the New York law suit… I think they were looking for a reason to cancel, and they are glad to do so.

Yeah.... I had a girlfriend flying in from California to go to it with. Cancelled our hotel reservations and her flight yesterday. The NRA kept the $100 deposit on our room.

So they cancel the event and then have the balls to keep your deposit...

This is the NRA we are talking about here…. I am a staunch supporter of the 2A. I own around 80 guns, including many NFA regulated items. I will also be the first to say that the NRA is 100% worthless. We would be better off without them at this point. Why people still support that sham of an organization is beyond my understanding.
