    Thousands call for guns at US Republican convention

    More than 22,000 people have signed a petition calling for Americans to be allowed to carry firearms at the Republican National Convention -- because the ban puts lives at risk.

    Guns are not allowed inside the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, where the event -- which could descend into a heated battle for the party presidential ticket -- is taking place in July.

    This is one of the more stupid 'requests' that I have seen in a long time.

    You have had fights break out at Trump rallies and now some people want to go armed?

    You've got to be kidding...

          Exactly.

          You definitely deserve a rep for that one, but I cannot give you one presently.

            This is what they've always wanted.

            It'll be okay, because "An armed populace is a polite populace."

            To some, elections should be held the same way.

              It's absurd, there will be a sufficient amount of armed security professionals and police on hand.

                    There's never enough security (until you need professional police).
                    There's never enough police (until you have a police state).
                    There's never enough military (until you have Fascism).
                    There's never enough "law abiding citizens" with guns of their choosing (until you have chaos and civil war of their choosing).

                    There's never enough common sense (it isn't common enough that everyone agrees what it is).

                          Check out the back grounds on some of the people that left messages....

                          It looks like the Dems are pushing this....

                              I think both sides are showing insanity.

                              I do think it is a pretty good tactical move.....kind of like what Webb did to Allen in 2006....
