Dallas Authorities prepare for National Rifle Association Convention

Dallas Authorities prepare for National Rifle Association Convention

The National Rifle Association's annual leadership forum later this week will feature Vice President Mike Pence on Friday, and while members can carry their firearms at all other times, the U.S. Secret Service will not allow any weapons into the convention center during Pence's speech.

NRA members are also to hear from Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, the pro-Trump black social media propagandists known as Diamond & Silk, who have accepted money from white nationalist Paul Nehlen, a neo-Nazi candidate running to replace Speaker Paul Ryan in the Wisconsin congressional election.

It just doesn't make any sense!

Firearms were also banned during Trump's NRA speech in Atlanta past year. After all, they have all these good guys with guns to protect them. A note has been posted on the NRA-ILA's website saying that due to the Secret Service, guns will not be allowed on the floor prior to and during the President's and Vice President's speeches.

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter, Jaime, was among the 17 people killed in the massacre, noted the irony in the policies concerning the vice president's welfare and those of the general public.

NRA banned nothing. The media does this every year.

National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor, Md., Feb. 22, 2018.

Parkland student David Hogg started a petition asking Pence to drop out of his speaking slot at the NRA convention 2018.

Several survivors of February's Florida high school shooting spoke out to slam the organization.

Another student from the high school, Matt Deitsch, tweeted that the NRA doesn't care about protecting children. "Don't be on the wrong side of history".

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".
