NRA Bans Guns During Convention Speech By President, Vice President

"NRA bans guns at President Trump, VP Pence speeches during it's [sic] annual meeting in Dallas", an Associated Press headline said. He was not one of the politicians rated on the NRA's most-recent grades in 2010. Fla., taking pictures, instantly ripped into the NRA for changing into what he mentioned was "a hilarious parody of itself". Matt Deitsch, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who helped organize the "March for Our Lives" protest, wrote on Twitter.

The survivors of the Parkland shooting are chastising the NRA for what they see as the group's hypocrisy for prioritizing the vice president's safety over the Second Amendment - albeit temporarily - and for not affording students and schools the same level of security.

"According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public, " Guttenberg said. But when they put on a convention, the weapons are a concern?

DeVos urged the gun organization to rethink its plan and insure that every member of the audience for Pence's speech is fully armed.

NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said the group's policy is that firearms are permitted in accordance with local law. We've reached out to the NRA for further statements and to confirm the gun ban at Trump's appearance.

Plans for the NRA speech come just more than two months after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, reignited a national debate about gun laws in the United States and spawned a student-led push to reform gun laws around the country.

"You may disagree. but in my opinion the very people that claim to protect the [Second Amendment] should never host an event that requires disarming the good guys. Sad".

Weapons will be prohibited in the hall during President Trump's speech, which will come later in the Dallas convention.

Jennifer Baker, an NRA spokesperson, reiterated to ABC Information that that is "commonplace protocol" for an occasion that includes the vp.

NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, who has long criticized coverage of the organization, said the misleading reporting damages the media's credibility.

Other users chimed in, saying the Secret Service is simply carrying out the law. The petition has 45,739 signatures in direction of it 50,000 objective.

Several of the Parkland school shooting survivors have tweeted about the irony of the NRA wanting to ban firearms at its own event, but the association says this is due to the Vice President's attendance, per orders from the secret service.
