Guns Will Be Banned During Mike Pence's Appearance at the NRA Convention and the Parkland Survivors Are Calling Them Out
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has a convention in Dallas over the coming weekend, May 3-6, but there is one thing convention goers are being told to leave at home: their guns. Vice President Mike Pence, a staunch gun advocate, is slated to appear on Friday at the convention.
The NRA issued guidance to all attendees that all "firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind" are forbidden from the convention due to the Vice President's attendance.
Since the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people, attitudes of American voters have shifted on the question of assault weapons. Over 6 in 10 United States voters now support bans on these guns.
Following the deadly shooting, that utilized an AR-15 rifle, students from the Parkland school organized multiple events to raise awareness and create solidarity with other students across the United States. They also took on the National Rifle Association (NRA) directly and indirectly, which targeted them as well.
