NRA Convention Bans Guns To Protect Mike Pence. Parkland Survivors' Jaws Drop.

Weapons of any kind will be banned before and during Vice President Mike Pence's speech at the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action Leadership Forum on Friday

But the firearm ban was taken by many gun control advocates as a tacit admission that a "good guy with a gun" would not in fact be capable of stopping an attack should one occur-contrary to what the NRA has insisted for years. But regardless of the weapon ban being imposed by the Secret Service rather than the NRA, gun control groups, Parkland survivors, and even some NRA members are calling the move hypocritical. The rule was also in effect when President Donald Trump spoke at the annual meetings previous year. But some victims of the mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were killed February 14, criticized the policy as hypocritical.

Matt Deitsch, an organizer of the March for Our Lives, replied to Kasky's tweet by bashing the gun lobby for wanting to "protect people who help them sell guns, not kids".

Texas had the most guns registered of any state past year, more than 580,000, and the state's Republican-dominated Legislature is particularly gun friendly.

"Also, it's amusing how anti-gun advocates are infuriated that law-abiding NRA members would follow the law".

In the days after the Florida shooting, the NRA and President Trump suggested arming teachers, in order to protect children when faced with a mass shooter.

PETA and Slater subsequently filed a joint motion to dismiss the case, but the Ninth Circuit denied the motions. In it, they demanded the monkey to be declared the real owner of the images.

Other than during Pence's appearance (and, presumably, Trump's appearance), firearms will be allowed at the rest of the NRA convention and at the hotel. They've announced that guns will be banned at an upcoming convention because Vice President Mike Pence will be in attendance. Sign now to demand Mike Pence pull out of the NRA convention. Although he claimed the ideas didn't receive support, one reason Trump may have backtracked is that the incredibly strong group donated $30 million to his 2016 presidential election campaign, which some people believe makes him beholden to the NRA's wishes.

"He made a decision to be in the wrong room with the wrong audience, especially if he's looking for votes and support", Oliver said. It's Secret Service SOP and so they supersede all begin and native management.

"He needs to go because he's seeing the other side gaining territory", Marin said. "NRA faces backlash for banning guns at NRA convention", a headline from The Hill said.

But the advisory is also drawing criticism from NRA members who view the restrictions as a violation of the organization's core tenets, including those of Pence, whom the NRA describes as "a lifetime supporter of the Second Amendment" with "a long record of fighting to defend our freedoms".
