Matt Deitsch, a former Parkland student who has become a leader in the gun control protest movement, replied to the tweet, saying that the NRA "will keep Pence safe without any weapons, 'but when it comes to children they want guns everywhere. Can someone explain this to me?"
The NRA says the Secret Service ordered the ban, but survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting are calling the move hypocritical, noting the organization's fierce opposition to gun-free zones in most public places.
Of course, the reason for the weapons ban at the NRA event is because the Secret Service is in charge of the security due to the presence of both the president and vice president, which means no weapons of any kind, including guns or gun accessories, are allowed.
Even the HuffPo article cited above includes the following: "The NRA posted the restrictions ― a requirement of the Secret Service ― on a website announcing the conference". And the agency has "authority to preclude firearms from entering sites visited by our protectees, including those located in open-carry states", it said in a statement.
Other than during Pence's appearance (and, presumably, Trump's appearance), firearms will be allowed at the rest of the NRA convention and at the hotel. It is expected to draw 80,000 members to explore more than 20 acres of firearm exhibits over three days.
A parent whose 14-year-old was killed in the Parkland school massacre, Fred Guttenberg, tweeted, "On so many levels, this is enlightening". County Judge Clay Jenkins is hosting a forum Thursday for local students to "voice their concerns" about the convention.
He added, "I wish my daughter and others murdered by guns had the same protection". "Am I missing something?" he asked on Twitter.
The president's record of picking federal judges who support a broad interpretation of Second Amendment rights has kept him in the good graces of the powerful gun lobby.
NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch took to Twitter to lambaste the information media for mischaracterizing the NRA's position in prohibiting weapons in Pence's presence. The Secret Service made this reasonable security measure, not the NRA.
