Motorcade arrived at the Georgia World Congress Center at 1:49 pm after an uneventful ride through Atlanta.

Hundreds of spectators lined up along the closed streets around Centennial Olympic Park, snapping photos and waving. A single lone yellow sign was spotted: "No Trump. No NRA. No guns."

Pool entered the venue ase NRA leader Wayne LaPierre was speaking about the media's lies.

The room is dark but there are some red, white and blues near the stage. There are at least three huge video screens at the front of the room/

Pool currently listening to a live performance from Lee Greenwood who is Proud to be America with the lyrics "God Bless the NRA" instead of "God Bless the USA."
