Wrong, Wrong, and Wrong Again!
No, it’s not the NRA that’s banning guns at their annual convention in Dallas later this week, it’s the U.S. Secret Service protecting our Vice President Mike Pence. No, it’s not unusual at all. It’s exactly what they always do. And No, the NRA has no choice as the Secret Service rules overrule state and local authority.
Now They’re Starting A Petition – and They’re Wrong Again…
Do they really think a petition signed by gun hater is going to stop a Second Amendment supporting VP from speaking at a Second Amendment supporting Convention? I don’t think so, but many gun control activists are upset because Pence will be speaking at this year’s National Rifle Association Annual Meeting in Texas. Anti-gun crusaders are accusing Pence of ignoring gun violence victims and putting the “gun lobby” over Americans.
According to ijr.com:
Actress and activist Alyssa Milano has started a petition demanding Pence to not appear at the event:
“This is a slap in the face to Americans — from Parkland to Chicago to Nashville — hurting from gun violence,” Milano wrote. “It’s also a signal to young people organizing historic actions that the NRA’s extremist agenda and donations are more valuable to Mike Pence than the lives lost. Sign now to demand Mike Pence pull out of the NRA convention.
“Enough! We must hold all politicians to basic standards of decency. Tell Mike Pence to drop out of the NRA’s convention and stand with the majority of Americans who want real action to end gun violence,” she concludes.
Parkland activist David Hogg shared the petition on his Twitter account:
Currently, the petition has over 45,000 signatures.
President Donald Trump is also reportedly set to address members at the convention, with the White House “finalizing exact details,” according to CNN.”
