The NRA Didn't Ban Guns At Their Annual Event

Vice President Pence is scheduled to speak May 4 at the annual NRA gathering in Dallas

AP has deleted a tweet that incorrectly said the NRA had banned guns during Trump and Pence speeches at its annual meeting.

According to the Dallas Morning News, the gun-lovers have to surrender their Second Amendment rights and have their guns stripped from them when the Vice President speaks to them.

Fla., shooting, immediately ripped into the NRA for becoming what he said was "a hilarious parody of itself".

He added, "I want my daughter and others murdered by weapons had the identical safety". Am I missing something?

Fred Guttenberg, father of 14-year-old Jaime Guttenberg, who died in the Parkland attack, decried the gun rights group's stance at this week's Dallas event. In other words: the event is a giant gun free zone - the very kind of zones @NRA wants to eliminate b/c they lie and say that they are targets for shooters. County Judge Clay Jenkins is hosting a forum Thursday for local students to "voice their concerns" about the convention. Can someone explain this to me? The NRA did not ban guns at the event, but in cases where, you know the president and vice president of the United States are addressing the convention, it's quite understandable that the Secret Service doesn't want firearms near them.

A Politico article Monday covered Parkland students' complaints about the NRA, to include a freaky take on how people are not allowed to carry guns to speeches by the president or vice-president. This step drew plenty of criticism from gun control advocates who believe that stricter gun laws should restrict guns in many areas throughout the USA including schools, churches, and other public places.

Records were also pulled of three vehicle incidents involving Jackson over the last four years. Now Trump is pushing back in Jackson's defense, saying Tester should resign.

Even gun enthusiasts and apparent NRA members are displeased at the prohibition. At Texas CHL Forum, a message board for gun owners, people aired their frustrations.

Attendees were similarly restricted from carrying weapons during President Trump's speech to the NRA in Atlanta a year ago. "You can't have it both ways, guys", she wrote. She referred questions about the Secret Service's policies to that agency.

"We're expecting in the thousands and we're expecting our numbers to go up with him coming to town", Alexander said of Trump.

Even some former NRA members are confused at the organization's decision to allow Pence to speak, despite its stance on restrictions.

After speaking at the Dallas convention, Trump will be due back in the city a week later, when he is set to headline a fundraiser there for his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee.
