Texas Gov. Abbott Cancels In-Person Appearance At NRA Convention, Will Visit Uvalde Instead

Published on

Texas Governor. Greg Abbott cancelled his plans to attend the National Rifle Association annual meeting this weekend. Instead, he will appear via video and visit Uvalde, Texas. This is after a school shooting that left 21 people dead.
Abbott was originally scheduled to attend the convention at Houston, where prominent Republicans such as Sen. Ted Cruz or former President Donald Trump are scheduled to speak.

Numerous high-profile figures including Don McLean and Larry Gatlin have cancelled their appearances at this year’s NRA conference. This was after Salvador Ramos, 18, entered Robb Elementary School in Uvalde Texas on Tuesday, and shot 19 children and two teachers.

Trump stated Wednesday that he will keep his promise to attend the event.

Daniel Defense, a gun manufacturer, announced Thursday that it had canceled plans for promoting products at the event.

The NRA expects that tens of thousands will attend the annual meeting. This is the first large gathering of NRA members for three years after a hiatus in the aftermath of the pandemic. It follows decades of hosting the annual event.
