42,000 Sign Petition to Allow Republicans to Bring Guns to G.O.P. Convention

"With the potential for a convoluted, multi-round fight to determine its presidential nominee (and the threat of riots if Donald Trump loses), this summer’s Republican National Convention is shaping up to be a historic, if not historically messy, spectacle. As if to make matters worse for a party that is already trying to fend off Trump’s takeover bid, the G.O.P must now contend with a new petition that calls for attendees, already in a high-pressure environment, to be allowed to “recognize our constitutional right to open carry firearms at the Republican National Convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in July 2016.”"

As if the GOP base isn't shrinking rapidly enough, now they want to wipe each other out?

1. I'm pretty sure it was started by someone on the left to highlight the hypocrisy of the right.

No proof (She/He is called the Fanatical Rationalist), but it sounds more like snark than something serious. Here's the petition:

4. Come on guys, don't you know that there are two sets of rules

 

one for the higher ups, like the top politicians and another for the general public.

I mean Donald Trump is the only one protected at a Donald Trump Rally by the Secret Service.
