    I’m disgusted with and ashamed of the NRA after they prohibited personal firearms in the annual meeting. They pretend to be the 2nd Amendment defenders but when the rubber hits the road they are hypocrites and supporters of the anti gun crowd. If I were not already a lifetime member I would not renew my membership. PDN and all other pro gun rights groups should distance themselves from the NRA

      You’re a NRA lifetime member and you think personal firearms were prohibited at the annual meeting? Really? How on Earth did you buy into that myth? Are you just a Bloomberg plant trying to stir up crap? Hate to tell you but I was there and thousands of people had their EDC’s on them. Just because you see a meme on Facebook saying something doesn’t mean it’s true. Wow! I really hope you are and anti-gun plant trying to spread false info. Because if you really ARE a 2nd amendment supporter we are in trouble!

      What are you talking about?

      I saw plenty of attendees open carrying. There was a single concert help off site at a sports arena where guns were not allowed (owner had a no gun policy – property rights), but the NRA show itself was very gun friendly.

    @ Marshall, who said anything about prohibited weapons? There were some ill informed stories reported on some liberal outlets. During my 2 days there, many open carry and who knows how many concealed carry. It was a great showing by the members of the NRA. I suggest you continue to support your NRA, because it is the big dog in the fight for our Rights (plural). Yes, they are protecting our Second Amendment Right, and by doing so, ensures we get to keep our other Rights.
