More than 5,000 support petition to allow guns at Republican National Convention in Cleveland

Support has more than quadrupled overnight for a petition to allow firearms at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

The petition, filed by “Americans for Responsible Open Carry,” was filed Monday on Change.org, an online forum. By Wednesday, 630 supporters had signed the request to carry firearms in and around Quicken Loans Arena, which will host the 2016 Republican National Convention from July 18-21.

With a goal of 5,000 signatures, the petition topped 5,300 by 6 p.m. Thursday.

The Ohio Republican Party, which is sending one of 50 state delegations to Cleveland this summer to nominate the party’s next presidential candidate, said it was not aware of the petition.

Nor was the host committee overseeing the convention, although it noted that the Secret Service, in conjunction with Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, state and federal authorities, is handling security for the event.

“They are coordinating and will be continuously refining security plans leading up to the national convention,” said Alee Lockman, a spokesperson for the Republican National Convention.

The Secret Service banned guns at the GOP convention in Florida four years ago.

1. Good heavens!

Let the circular firing squad begin. Cruz's supporters and Donald's supporters armed and angry with each other. I guess they will nominate the last candidate standing.

5. Yes, especially this year,

because every hate-addled loony out there has had 8 years to work himself into an absolute frenzy and one of his own is finally running for office and has a real shot at getting in.

I already know there will be fistfights, on camera or off. They let these flailing, frothing maniacs in with gunz, there will be real tragedy.

3. Sounds right to me.




Next step ...

At the high point of their fun and games ... turn off the lights on
the convention floor and then set off a pack of firecrackers.

4. What could possibly go wrong?

I'm picturing 5,000 Yosemite Sams in the arena.
