The NRA loves Louisville. And Louisville loves the NRA. The two have signed a tentative agreement to bring the 2022 NRA Annual Meeting once again to the fine Kentucky city. Unlike New York City and Chicago, Louisville appreciates the NRA and its gun-toting members.
The lucrative event brings lots of publicity along with 80,000 people, $50 million in economic benefit and lower crime. What’s not to like?
The 2022 NRA convention will mark the third time Louisville has played host to the convention in recent years. The Derby City hosted the NRA in both 2008 and 2016.
The National Rifle Association plans to return to Louisville for its annual meeting in 2022, a session expected to attract around 80,000 visitors and pour more than $50 million into the local economy.
The NRA convention is one of the most lucrative pieces of tourism-related businesses, officials say.
The group that strongly supports the Second Amendment and is based in Fairfax, Virginia, has signed a memorandum of understanding pledging to meet in Louisville for a third time in recent years – following conventions in two previous presidential election years, 2008 and 2016.
Kentucky knows how to host the event as well. The people there show their southern hospitality and their gun laws allow for open carry without a license. Life is good in the Bluegrass State.
We’ll see you there in 2022.
