NRA Meeting Expected to Bring Millions of Dollars to Dallas

Illinois gun owners and supporters file out National Rifle Association applications while participating in an Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day convention before marching to the Illinois state Capitol in Springfield Ill

It's the NRA's first gathering since the February 14 school shooting that left 17 dead in Parkland, Florida, sparking student-led protests across the country and opening up a national debate on gun reform.

In 2017 the NRA's lobbying efforts focused on a number of bills including the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which would allow people to carry concealed weapons across state lines as long as they are registered in their home state, and the Hearing Protection Act of 2017, which would eliminate restrictions on silencers for guns. Attendees are "not under NRA jurisdiction" during Pence's speech, she said. "According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public".

Secret Service officials said in a statement that the agency has the "authority to preclude firearms from entering sites visited by our protectees, including those located in open-carry states".

"On so many levels, this is enlightening".

Dallas police are expecting "numerous" protests during the four-day convention, and warn that additional road closures are possible. "Am I missing something?" he asked on Twitter.


The move is part of a directive from the Secret Service, which will oversee security during the leadership forum on Friday where the two are slated to speak. "Obviously even republicans and so called leaders don't trust the 'good guys.' I realize it's the VP, but still makes our whole argument look foolish".

"Wait wait wait wait wait wait you're telling me to make the VP safe there aren't any weapons around but when it comes to children they want guns everywhere?" he wrote.

The irony was not lost on some Parkland students and parents. It's Secret Service SOP and they supersede all start and local control. Many pundits took glee in leveling charges of hypocrisy against the NRA, which fervently campaigns against gun-free zones and in favor of the rights of gun owners to legally carry their weapons in public spaces.

Trump is scheduled to speak Friday at the annual gathering in Dallas.
