BREAKING: Oliver North Ousted as NRA President

INDIANAPOLIS - As the second morning of the 2019 National Rifle Association Annual Meeting opened at the Indiana Convention Center, huge crowds were already roaming the floor on what is expected to be a big day for the group’s 148th annual meeting.

Already the news is big from the NRAAM with word of an arrest Friday following a speech by President Donald J. Trump. That was followed up by a claim of extortion and a surprise ouster as Friday night turned into Saturday morning.

With more than 80,000 people expected to fill the Indiana Convention Center this weekend to see the more than 800 exhibitors on hand, the wild times in Indy were a big topic of conversation among many.

One topic was about President Trump's Friday speech at Lucas Oil Stadium. As Trump took to the stage, a cell phone was reportedly thrown onto the platform, although a video replay showed it did not come close to hitting the President.


Attention quickly turned to controversy after NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre alleged that North was “extorting” him to resign.
