Bushmaster rifle during the 2013 National Rifle Association (NRA) Annual Meetings & Exhibits at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, U.S., on Saturday, May 4, 2013. After the U.S. Senate defeated a proposed expansion of background checks on gun purchases, the NRA's annual conference has a celebratory atmosphere.
