VA – NRA – NRA Cancels Annual Meeting Over Coronavirus

The National Rifle Association announced the cancellation of its annual conference on Thursday to prevent the potential spread of coronavirus. “We have been closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Tennessee Department of Health. In fact, earlier today, a state of emergency was declared in Tennessee,” Amy Hunter, an NRA spokeswoman, told the Washington Free Beacon in a statement. “Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s NRA Annual Meeting, planned for April 16 – 19 in Nashville. This applies to all events and scheduled programs, including the NRA-ILA Forum.” The annual conference has been held at different locations around the United States for the last 148 years. It is among the largest political gatherings in the country. Last year’s NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis drew around 80,000 members. The gun-rights group’s announcement is just the latest high-profile cancellation of a major gathering as the United States attempts to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. CNN’s upcoming Democratic Primary Debate was moved from Arizona to Washington, D.C., and will be held without an audience. The NBA, NHL, NCAA, and numerous other sporting leagues have officially postponed or canceled all of their upcoming games. Numerous houses of worship have also canceled religious services in the most heavily affected areas.  [full article]
