INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Many attendees of the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting gave the city of Indianapolis a good review for hosting the large convention.

An NRA spokesperson said organizers had heard positive response at the culmination of its three-day event.

Ease of access, centrally located amenities and strength of Midwestern NRA membership were some of the considerations the NRA said it had in choosing Indianapolis to hold the event.

“You can drive about three hours in any direction from this city and reach one million of our five million members,” NRA spokesperson Catherine Mortensen said. “I think if you were to ask our members, they would want to come back here for sure. Our board will be making that decision in the next few years but I can tell the members we’ve spoken to have been very pleased.”

At least 70,000 people were expected to visit the Indiana Convention Center during what was described as the fourth largest event of its kind hosted in Indianapolis. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
