The National Rifle Association (NRA) of the United States announced on Tuesday its decision to cancel its annual meeting scheduled for September 2-5 in Texas due to an increase in coronavirus cases.

The NRA said in a statement that it made “this difficult decision after analyzing relevant data on covid-19 in Harris County,” whose headquarters is the city of Houston, which had been chosen to host the event.

They reportedly consulted with medical professionals, local officials, sponsors and exhibitors, among others, before taking the decision. The organization argued that its “top priority” is to ensure the health and well-being of its members, staff, sponsors and supporters.

In addition, it confirmed they are aware that meeting attendees would be returning home to family, friends and co-workers across the country, so “any impact of the virus could have broader implications.”

In any case, he anticipated that they will announce a new date for their annual membership meeting and will support local events and smaller gatherings in the meantime.

According to the NRA, at the annual meeting there are exhibition spaces for “the latest and greatest” firearms, “countless” accessories and the offer of adventures and group meetings to “experiment.”

The U.S is currently facing a spike in covid-19 infections attributed to the Delta variant.
