Nurse the Hate: Calling All Americans!

I was very excited to see a petition online that has been gaining steam to allow firearms in the Republican Convention this summer.  The petition is focused on allowing open carry of firearms in the Quicken Loans Arena during the RNC and overturning the building’s foolish policy of not allowing people to bring weapons to things like a One Direction concert, Cavs game or Disney On Ice.  Check it out.

It is very odd that the Quicken Loans Arena does not allow firearms in the arena, which is obviously an outrage to any rational thinking person.  As the petition points out, “This is a direct affront to the Second Amendment and puts all attendees at risk. As the National Rifle Association has made clear, "gun-free zones" such as the Quicken Loans Arena are "the worst and most dangerous of all lies."  Cleveland, Ohio is consistently ranked as one of the top ten most dangerous cities in America. By forcing attendees to leave their firearms at home, the RNC and Quicken Loans Arena are putting tens of thousands of people at risk both inside and outside of the convention site.”

I agree with this completely and feel that a potential target like the RNC needs to be as safe as possible.  As the Republican Party has continued their enabling relationship with the NRA, shouldn’t they “walk the walk” of what they have been preaching and allow 18,000 people to walk around the convention floor with a vast array of weapons?  As the attendees will undoubtedly all be responsible gun owners, this will make the convention site perhaps the safest place on the planet.  If any trouble starts, people can just start shootin’ and fix the problem.  I’m all about safety and want to make sure all the candidates that have accepted financial support from the NRA in exchange for making sure existing gun laws are not challenged in any way feel as safe as possible.  Knowing that tens of thousands of guns are in the same room as they are while they go about their business will make them feel very safe and secure.  

As we all know, the most important part of safety is arming everyone.  We have been told this over and over and over from the NRA and their supporters.  I agree.  Let’s put this practice in motion right now.  Every bad thing that has happened in the past could have been stopped by lots of people with guns.  Let’s make sure there are lots and lots and lots of people with guns at the convention.  It’s the only logical thing to do.  I urge your support of this democratic action.  Let’s all do the right thing here.  Let’s make these people safe.  Really safe.  Let everyone bring their guns.  I signed it.  You should too.

God Bless America.
