6 things to know about NRA convention
The National Rifle Association will hold its annual convention April 10-12 in Nashville. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know.
Holy irony batman… The National Rifle Association wants guns at schools but won't allow working guns at their convention. Ya know… for safety.
"All guns on the convention floor will be nonoperational, with the firing pins removed, and any guns purchased during the NRA convention will have to be picked up at a Federal Firearms License dealer, near where the purchaser lives, and will require a legal identification."
Edit: For clarification, they've only stated that the vendors guns would have firing pins removed and people cannot have firearms in the center… however, during the day at the Music City Center the NRA says it will allow licensed gun owners to carry their weapons. So yes… it has to do with the convention center rules. That said, they chose the convention center and these are some of the same people who carry AR15s into restaurants to make a point (http://www.dallasnews.com/news/local-news/20140519-dallas-gun-demonstration-prompts-chipotle-to-issue-no-firearms-request-to-customers.ece). Perhaps, given their stance on the issue, they should pick a place that would allow all firearms all the time.
