Students who survived Friday’s school shooting in Noblesville, Indiana are protesting in outrage after the National Rifle Association set up a recruitment tent in town the very next day, WXIN reported Saturday.
‘Let us heal’ and ‘Kids first’ read some of the signs of students protesting a NRA tent outside the Hoosier Armory grand opening on Saturday.
Those running the NRA tent reportedly asked the students to leave and refused to speak with WXIN TV.
On social media and at the protest, there were plenty of people to give their views on the NRA recruiting the day after another school shooting.

NRA is in downtown Noblesville, for a previously scheduled event at Hoosier Armory. Instead of hanging out locks or giving safety tips, they are here to hand out bumper stickers & koozies. Bad timing. Now middle school survivors are protesting their presence. pic.twitter.com/1OogALAnfw

Hoosier Armory is a gun store. They‘re celebrating their grand opening today in OUR community right after a shooting. This is absolutely disheartening and disgusting. pic.twitter.com/6ALNqyVv1a

To celebrate the grand opening, the store is giving away MasterPiece Arms 30T 9mm pistol with 6″ threaded barrel and 30 round magazine.
