Guns will be banned from the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Dallas, where President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are slated to speak at Friday's leadership forum. Due to the scheduled presence of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence at the event, the Secret Service was authorized to implement security arrangements at the venue.
"It's ironic that they feel they need to ban guns to protect themselves especially after their main philosophy has been more guns equals more protection yet they don't think they need to protect our kids in the same way", said David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas who has pushed for stricter gun control since the shooting.
It just doesn't make any sense! "According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public".
Dallas police are expecting "numerous" protests during the four-day convention, and warn that additional road closures are possible. I thought giving everyone a gun was to enhance safety. Texas is an open-carry state. The more guns you have, the less safe you are. "Am I missing something?" he asked on Twitter. Pence will be speaking at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum on Friday, the organization announced last week. You may disagree...but in my opinion the very people that claim to protect the 2A should never host an event that requires disarming the good guys. Sad. A virulent recruitment video by the NRA suggests joining the group is the best defense against political opponents such as Barack Obama, Hollywood actors, the news media, school teachers and liberals.

Frank Lampard: Rangers job "great opportunity" for Steven Gerrard
Rangers have endured a hard recent period and have sacked Murty off the back of a 5-0 defeat to Celtic in the Glasgow Derby. Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has urged Liverpool U18 coach Steven Gerrard to accept Rangers' approach.
White House officials confirmed to NPR's Mara Liasson that President Trump will be attending the convention later this week, though it's unclear when he will speak. This shows what hypocrites the NRA and the Trump administration are.
As Liasson reported, the NRA spent more than any other outside group on Trump's presidential campaign - more than $30 million.
"The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end", Trump told the crowd.
