Over 11,000 people have signed a petition to allow guns inside the Republican National Convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland in July.
FOX 6 now reported:
Support is growing for an online petition to allow guns inside Quicken Loans Arena during the Republican National Convention.
More than 10,000 people have signed theChange.org petition since it was started two days ago.
The petition said the policy is “a direct affront to the Second Amendment” and “puts all attendees at risk.” It also calls Cleveland one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, citing an October 2015 Forbes article.
The petition is asking the Q to suspend its policy, GOP president candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich to use executive authority, and the Republican National Committee to explain “how a venue so unfriendly to Second Amendment rights was chosen for the Republican Convention.”
