"North Carolina State law prohibits the carrying of firearms in the Charlotte Convention Center, and the Time Warner Cable Arena," the sign outside the convention hall reads. "In addition, the Rules and Regulations of the Charlotte Convention Center prohibit the carrying of firearms in the Center.
Pursuant to Time Warner Cable Arena policy, all individuals entering the Arena will be subject to a magnetometer security check."Sound like the entryway into this years' Netroots Nation, a convention of liberal bloggers?
Well, it isn't: it's the sign outside the door to the convention for the country's largest gun rights organization, the NRA.
The only question I have is this? How could the NRA leadership have their heads so far up their asses that they chose to have their convention in a place that does not allow guns? This is yet another reason why Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a better organization.
