GOP drops NRA president from rally in city hit by shooting

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana Republicans canceled an appearance by National Rifle Association President Oliver North hours before he was set to speak at a GOP rally miles from where a 13-year-old boy allegedly shot a classmate and a teacher last May.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Indiana Republican Party initially said a scheduling conflict forced North out of Sunday’s Noblesville rally featuring Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun and other GOP candidates.

But GOP Chairman Kyle Hupfer later said North was dropped because it would have been “the wrong place and wrong time.”

The venue for Sunday’s suburban Indianapolis rally is miles from where a student opened fire May 25 inside Noblesville West Middle School.

The suspect is scheduled to appear in court Monday to make the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty plea.
