No guns allowed at NRA convention when president, VP speak

No guns allowed at NRA convention when president, VP speak

The National Rifle Association's (NRA) annual meeting is coming to Dallas this week and along with it protests and a presidential visit.

"NRA members are excited to hear from Governor Ricketts at the annual Leadership Forum in Dallas".

Survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, which claimed the lives of 17 people, spoke out on Twitter about the president addressing the NRA event as well as the fact that guns are banned at the gathering.

"It's ironic that they feel they need to ban guns to protect themselves especially after their main philosophy has been more guns equals more protection yet they don't think they need to protect our kids in the same way", David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas who has pushed for stricter gun control since the shooting.

Of course, the reason for the weapons ban at the NRA event is because the Secret Service is in charge of the security due to the presence of both the president and vice president, which means no weapons of any kind, including guns or gun accessories, are allowed.

The National Rifle Association's annual meeting is upon us and like allergy season, the news media is saying that the organization banned guns because Vice President Mike Pence and President Trump are attending.

A White House spokesperson said Sunday it was "finalizing exact details" of Trump's address. The NRA spent $11.4 million to elect Trump and $19 million against Hillary Clinton.

This will be President Trump's third address to the NRA.

The NRA has been the target of ire in recent months as the #NeverAgain movement has gained traction, calling attention to the powerful lobbying group's donations to lawmakers and efforts to defeat even very popular gun control reform proposals, like the expansion of background checks.

The case has stirred strong emotions both in Britain and overseas , with hundreds of thousands signing petitions supporting him. Flowers, balloons, toys and cards were left at the hospital, who passed away five days after his life-support was turned off.

But Trump later backpedaled from those sweeping statements, offering a more limited plan. After he advocated rising the minimal age to buy an assault weapon to 21, Trump tweeted there was "not a lot political help" for the concept.
