Is it true? Were guns not allowed at the NRA disaster of a press conference on Friday?

If this is true, the hypocracy is beyond comprehension. Guns should be allowed at political events, especially ones that involve Dick Cheney or anyone in the NRA.

If they are able to keep guns out, does this mean they don't believe in their own intrepretation of the second amendment?

Also, the right to keep arms, in fact, should mean keep them on your property. Taking them off should immediately cause you to be put in prison and fined everything you have. Given the ridiculous levels the NRA has taken gun owership to in this country (from the Florida stand your ground rules, to guns in schools and hospitals), gun nuts should realize that they are primarily funding the gun manufacturers. This is similar to hostages turning into supporters of their captors.

Someone in the media recently stated that gun control would not be immediately successful because there are already too many guns out there. Think about this. The NRA stupidly but successfully argued for the proliferation of guns as a safety measure (in truth they were likely fighting for the profits of their corporate masters). Now that this has failed miserably their new argument is an admission that too many guns is a problem and then to say that it is too late to curtain gun proliferation. This is like the cigeratte companies saying that people have already been damaged by tobacco, so there is no point in stopping smoking.

1. The NRA

is a lot like al Qeada. They send others out to kill and be killed but try to keep the top brass safe.

13. i found the answer about guns being allowed into the NRA building


it's a double standard, and if i understand what i'm told the 2nd amendment means, a violation of my gun rights:


from daily kos
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/12/21/1172739/-I-Called-the-NRA-Today-Oh-Boy

....
She told me that the security guards at the front desk were unarmed, but that visitors were not allowed to bring weapons into the building (except to their posh firing range, which has a separate entrance).

......

sounds like an infringement to gun rights

11. i know cheney did not allow guns at one of his meetings

i'm pretty certain that meeting was was not in dc proper. so there have been cases where guns were not allowed at events conducted by nra supporters.

17. It is astounding since it points out the irrational fear these gun people have and

the notion that those protesting guns would use guns as protest is just laughable and delusional.

9. If it was in DC proper, I don't think open or concealed carry is allowed.


But I'm not certain if it was in DC proper.

So yes, it could be true, but it could have been in compliance with the law.

A security sweep would have been looking for illegally placed guns.

12. Willad Intercontinantal Hotel... Washington DC... no guns allowed by law

 

News reports say the conference was at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel. Washington DC doesn't allow the open or concealed carry of firearms. Not sure how you think the NRA, or anyone else at the conference besides a cop would legally be carrying a gun.

Points for trying though...

15. Every state should pass laws requiring that citizens be allowed the right to

carry all legal firearms at gun shows, gun conventions and stores selling guns, and that the guns be loaded.

How about that, NRA?

16. for 2nd amendment supporters, this must be done.

anything less is unpatriotic.

i would love to see my citizens have the right to carry loaded uzi's into congress to discuss taxation with the repugs who voted in favor of nra proposals for decades. it is their right according to the 2nd amendment.
