Maurey Addelman, the oldest NRA Life Member at the NRA Convention in Indy

Indianapolis, Indiana - At any NRA Convention, there is nothing more important than the Annual Meeting of Members. That's where things get done.

Resolutions are passed, members address the leadership, and agendas for the new legislative season are rolled out for all to see. But unlike those suppers at your mom's kitchen table, this event serves up the desserts first. The recognition of the youngest and oldest life members of the NRA.

It is a critical campaign stop for serious contenders for the White House and Congress, our nation's governorships who support our Second Amendment freedoms, and national news makers. Past forums have featured speeches by Snator John McCain (AZ); former governor Sarah Palin (AK); Governor Rick Perry (TX); and more.

9 acres of guns at the NRA Convention in Indy

Indianapolis, Indiana - Day one at the 2014 NRA Annual Meeting was a doozy. Hundreds of thousand of members traveling from across the United States to celebrate a taste of the freedom they hold so dear. And boy were they rewarded. In addition to the hundreds of vendors lining the halls and walkways of the Indiana Convention Center, there were workshops, seminars and a little thing we like to call the NRA Country Jam.

Though there wasn't room for everyone to enjoy everything, that doesn't mean there isn't more fun, informative, and potential lifesaving experiences waiting to be had. Some are more fun than lifesaving, but that doesn't mean one should be pushed aside in favor of the other. We leave that choice up to you.
