Of course, any same person can see why we wouldn't want everyone walking around packing heat, but if your position is to guarantee this "right," then you really can't turn around and ban it, can you? If you want all of America to be Dodge City, then Cleveland is Dodge City, too.

14. Dodge City (in fact most cities in those days) didn't allow weapons to be carried

From what I've read nearly all 'wild west' towns banned the carry of firearms outside of your home because residents didn't want the violence that would be a natural consequence of such 'open carry'. Illegally carrying a firearm resulted in arrest - in other words there was 'gun control' in the wild west, and nobody was complaining about their second amendment rights back then.

Now it's about 12,000 and says it needs 3,000 to reach 15,000. So when it passes 15,000, will it have to reach 20,000? Are these movable goal posts?

24. That's how the petitions work.

They set a target, then if/when it's reached they set another target. They do it with all petitions not just this one. I'm sure there's a good reason. Maybe it encourages people to sign if they feel they're likely to meet a goal.

41. When we had the petition to Ban Trump from the UK there was an initial goal of 10,000

That got a response from the government. 100,000 made sure it was considered in parliament, but after that they still kept setting goals. Then as it was already to be debated the more signatures before the debate the better.

I don't see how they can possibly stay safe without that. If everyone brings one gun then one side of their body will be at risk.

Really, why can't the NRA just pull up with a couple tractor trailers full of automatic guns and hand one out at the gates as people come in?

A convicted felon shot a young man at a gas station for playing his boom box to loud. Orlando Fl area, last week. Another shot his friend over a tax return. We live in an angry country whose citizens know down deep that our laws are designed to benefit and protect the rich from the poor. An angry populace, is a violent populace. Easy access to guns, even felons, is insane. In my county you have to register, and pay fee, for your dog, but guns? The more the better....right wing logic.

....how close firearms are allowed to be carried in proximity to the candidates.

And since the Secret Service, under the current Obama administration, has to follow guidelines set up by Obama, it will be OBAMA'S FAULT if they do not allow guns at the convention.

Thanks, Obama.

62. It's important that people live to their beliefs. Hypocrisy is not good. So, I signed it!

 

No thanks necessary, GOP! I am happy to help!

71. They don't need guns at the convention. It's not like they're gonna be in a church.

74. More than 22000 Nut Jobs Want to Allow Guns at Repug Convention: Esquire

http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a43351/petition-guns-republican-national-convention/

I think it works the other way too. What kind of nut job wouldn't want to see a whole lot of well armed, paranoid and angry Republican pols confront each other? This is a once in four year opportunity to thin their herd. Since they gerrymandered and primaried out their natural predators they have bred like crazed monkeys and are a menace to public safety. You can't swing a confederate flag over your head without hitting one of them. But here's a thought. Lock em in the convention hall with automatic weapons, turn out the lights withTed Nugent anthems at eardrum bleed volume and let God sort it out.

79. Drug testing could be part of the law


Since Trump has been appearing irrationally weird to squirrely he should be drug tested. Listen closely and you might notice Trumps nasal cocaine resonance. Definitely a sign of the one percent culture that rant of good health to feel no pain.

That goes for all who participate in the rally. Actually a good idea for all the candidates to show a drug, and alcohol test every month before election.

What’s interesting and fearful is Ohio does not have any background checks for gun sales according to wiki.

Talk about a Republican goof. So, any Yo-Yo can buy a gun.

80. The arena is a private venue that doesnt allow weapons. End of story.

 

So the GOP would have the right to tell them differently? I doubt it.
If it was the GOP not allowing weapons, there might be a story there. But this is just silliness

83. There's a flaw in their thinking.

To Islamic terrorists the GOP is a powerful recruiting tool. They would not mess that up. Also, IS prefers to kill nice people, so that means the GOP folks have nothing to worry about. Even though they do not like democracy, it will still be happening outside of their conclave.

84. They are hypocrites and cowards

They aggressively believe in what they consider to be Second Amendment rights as long as it primarily endangers other peoples' lives. But if it might endanger their own lives they are flat out against them.
