RNC CONVENTION: 10,000 People Sign Petition to be Allowed to Carry

Screen Shot 2016-03-25 at 7.36.59 PMThoughts? Is this too much of a risk or a necessary right conceal carriers are asking for?

Thousands of individuals have signed an online petition seeking to nudge Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) into allowing concealed carry firearms into the Republican National Committee Convention in Cleveland.

The convention will be held in Quicken Loans Arena, which currently bars guns from the premises.

The petition–which can be found at Change.Org–calls on Quicken Loans Arena to suspend “their policy preventing the open carry of firearms on the premises of the arena from July 18-21, 2016 to coincide with the Republican National Convention.” The petition also asks the NRA to join the fray by issuing “an immediate condemnation of the egregious affront to the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution constituted by the ‘gun-free zone’ loophole to the state law.”
