Parkland college students model firearm ban throughout Pence speech as NRA hypocrisy

Parkland college students model firearm ban throughout Pence speech as NRA hypocrisy

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

The NRA posted a disclaimer about the event, saying because of Pence's attendance, Secret Service was in charge of security and that "firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance", Morin wrote. "In outcome, firearms and firearm equipment, knives or weapons of any variety can be prohibited within the discussion board previous to and through his attendance".

But the NRA has also been critical of so-called "gun free zones" - including schools where Floridians with concealed carry permits are not allowed to bring their firearms. This is noted clearly at the top of the sign that purportedly points to NRA "hypocrisy": "Hall A3 is under the jurisdiction of the U. S. Secret Service during the Leadership forum".

Matt Deitsch, an organizer of the March for Our Lives, replied to Kasky's tweet by bashing the gun foyer for desirous to "defend individuals who assist them promote weapons, not children".

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. The NRA did not ban guns at the event, but in cases where, you know the president and vice president of the United States are addressing the convention, it's quite understandable that the Secret Service doesn't want firearms near them. But it makes a great headline to say that the NRA isn't allowing guns.

The NRA did not respond to a request for comment. "You can't have it both ways, guys", she wrote.




But this year's appearance will be the first since Trump told lawmakers not to fear the NRA in the wake of the Parkland shooting and floated some responses opposed by the organization, including raising the legal age to buy certain firearms to 21.

Trump met with NRA officers on the White Home twice in lower than every week following the Parkland bloodbath, and a few week after the assault on the Florida highschool, Trump known as the NRA management "nice individuals and nice American patriots" on Twitter.

"The NRA should be true to its values and ask the President and VP not to come if they can not protect them with all of those armed citizens".

It will mark the 147th year the NRA has held the conference.

"We're expecting in the thousands and we're expecting our numbers to go up with him coming to town", Alexander said of Trump.
