National Rifle Association President Oliver North was cut from a Republican rally just miles from a school in which a 13-year-old boy allegedly shot a classmate and teacher at Noblesville West Middle School in May.
With just hours to go, the Associated Press reported North was told by the GOP that it probably wasn't the best message to send days before an election.
The Indiana Republican Party told the press that it was a "scheduling conflict" that threw North out of a Sunday rally in Noblesville, but the truth quickly came out. Chairman Kyle Hupfer explained it was "the wrong place and wrong time."
The boy will appear in court less than 24 hours after the rally.
