NRA won't allow guns at its own upcoming event

NRA-ILA Leadership Forum

The White House confirmed that President Donald Trump will address the National Rifle Association (NRA) at its annual convention in Dallas, TX this week.

"It's been known for weeks that Vice President Mike Pence would be making an appearance at the convention and because of that the NRA said it would ban guns at the meeting, announcing that "... firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance".

Trump will also attend the convention on Friday, a senior White House aide said but did not give a time.

The NRA is complying with laws that prohibit firearms from being brought into areas where Secret Service protectees visit, agency spokesman Shawn Holtzclaw told The Washington Post in a statement Sunday.

Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin New Shepard Spaceship Launch Successful
Both Bezos's Blue Origin and Elon Musk's SpaceX take pride in their mission to build reusable space vehicles. Wells, reached its highest altitude yet, with Bezos tweeting that it had reached 351,000 feet.

NRA signs supporting the 2 Amendment are in place outside the convention center, but as the city prepares to welcome for thousands of convention-goers it is also bracing for the protestors that will come along with them. Am I missing something?

"According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public", Guttenberg tweeted. Can someone explain this to me?

While Trump voiced support after the Parkland shootings for raising the age to buy rifles to 21, he backed off the proposal after meeting with NRA officials. 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 what the Secret Service wants, the Secret Service gets.

Cameron Kasky, a student from Parkland, Florida and co-founder of the March for Our Lives campaign, called out the NRA for becoming "such a hilarious parody of itself". That would mean another event at one of the gun lobby's biggest gatherings where guns would be banned.
