INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. ( & KRNV) -- Final preps are underway in Indianapolis ahead of the National Rifle Association's Annual National Convention.

It is hard to miss the banners and signs outside the convention center where the NRA will occupy nine acres with guns and gear. The convention officially kicks off Friday morning, and is expected to draw 70,000 people into the city.

Attendees will hear from several 2016 Presidential hopefuls as well as from the NRA leadership. "What they are going to do is kind of give us the lay of the land, where we stand for the 2014 elections," NRA Spokesperson Catherine Mortensen said. "They're going to be speaking to members about what kind of legislation we're going to support, and giving them an idea of what needs to be done to protect our second amendment rights."

Many gun control advocacy groups plan to stage alternative events during the weekend.
