Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON, Tx. (KNOE 8 News/ CNN) - A large crowd is gathered in Houston for the National Rifle Association's yearly meeting and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was there to join them over the weekend. The NRA's chief executive, greeted the tens of thousands of members who showed up for the Texas-sized event. NRA leaders wasted no time going after those who want to limit gun access to law abiding citizens. The gathering comes just weeks after the senate fell short of the 60 votes needed to push forward with an expansion of background checks for gun buyers.

"I still have a hard time understanding an administration that says law abiding Americans shouldn't have guns but people who break laws in other countries should," Jindal said. "I don't understand that kind of thinking."

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin along with Texas Governor Rick Perry also spoke at the yearly meeting.
