    If the place where their meeting is being held has banned guns from the premise. And the NRA - a strong pro-gun group - has specifically chosen that location to hold their meeting at. Isn't the NRA agreeing to ban guns from their meeting? I mean why hold it there if they want people who carry guns to go there?

    1. When you move here, if you don't have a gun, they give you a shotgun and a deer rifle. You have to buy your own pistols, sorry.

    2. Paperwork consists of "sign here" and costs nothing.

    3. I have two dogs.

    You're being far too naive for character.

    Actually as already noted in thread, the NRA knew what they were doing when they booked the event and their law abiding members had no problem with obeying the stipulations. All of them are already familiar with adherence to the law and only in internetz land does their choice to hold their convention at a public facility that does not allow guns on premises, rate on the scandal meter. In fact, I suspect that the desire to be able to have open bars and adult beverages on hand for a "convention" had more to do with the matter than anything else.

    BTW- This is hardly the first time a NRA convention was held at a convention facility where firearms were prohibited; most of those types of facilities in the United States have the same limitations. Must have been a really slow news day.............

    I'm a GOA member. I let my NRA membership lapse after they opposed a bill in my state that would have expanded on CCW rights... they opposed it because it didn't originate with the NRA, but with the GOA. That's inexcusable.

    I joined the NRA as a life member back when I was a top junior ISU skeet shooter and the NRA ran the trials. I bought my wife and son life memberships. Larry Pratt sometimes comes off as a shrill version of ALF's Father in interviews and that doesn't help the GOA. The GOA is like many bible thumpers who wouldn't support Romney--they are purists who sacrifice winning.

    Can you cite this law and the NRA's opposition?
    Just curious -- I haven't heard of any such thing.
