The Secret Service won't allow guns at the GOP Convention.
Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Wow, what would the over/under be on the number of deaths in Cleveland if they allowed people to carry?

    And come to think of it, what is the over/under now that they are not allowing guns? Man, this is going to be ugly.

    Guns don't kill people. Besides the best defense against a bad guy with a gun.......
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Good point, which probably what the Secret Service is thinking.

    This is step #4 in the process.

    Step #1 is to vote Republican. Step #2 is to have said Republicans cut taxes for businesses and 'job creators.' Step #3 is a massive decrease in social services and infrastructure, leading to Step #4.

    Step 5.

    Buy a gun and take care of yourself.

    Step 6.

    Enjoy the freedom of not depending on the govt to provide your every need.

    911 takes 20 minutes to over an hour to respond. All they bring are body bags and note pads.

    A bullet travels at 800-2000 feet per second. You guys believe in efficiency, don't you?

    As long as you understand you have a greater chance of shooting yourself or a loved one than an intruder, go for it. But why wouldn't the Republicans insist on open carry at their convention? Could it be that they understand that it actually makes them less safe?

    But you do understand that there are some needs the government should provide, right? Or when your house is on fire do you plan to put it out with a garden hose?

    Seriously, I hope you guys understand that the vast majority of us gun rights types despise open carry advocates.

    They are the ISIS to us otherwise peaceful Muslim gun owners. After all, we don't judge entire groups on the actions of a few.

    Right?

    When you home burns down, relish in the FREEDOM! And when you get screwed by the insurance company that you have never even had a late payment to? Man, time to double down on that sweet, sweet freedom!!!

    You do know the police are not responsible too protect you. Good old government, you can't have the means to protect yourself and were not responsible for your safety.

    If given the chance, I would shoot everyone of you truckers in the face. Just like the founding fathers wanted.

    It is not just the open carry types that think the world is better off if everyone is packing heat. So why not let everyone conceal carry?
