Trump supporters want to carry guns at GOP Convention

Angry Trump supports might pack guns into GOP Convention if open carry petition is successful

If Trump supporters have their way, they may be packing guns into the GOP Convention in Cleveland. A petition to allow open carry of guns into the Quicken Loans Area has gathered over 35,000 signatures.

The petition was posted on, a site traditionally used for liberal and socialist causes, as a way for gun owners to express their 2nd amendment rights during the GOP convention in August. The petition states:  “though Ohio is an open carry state, which allows for the open carry of guns, the hosting venue — the Quicken Loans Arena — strictly forbids the carry of firearms on their premises.” That “is a direct affront to the Second Amendment and puts all attendees at risk.”

Donald Trump who claims to be a strong supporter of gun rights told ABC that “I have not seen the petition. I want to see what it says. I want to read the fine print.” Apparently Donald does not read much since he claims to have not read the National Enquirer story about the alleged Ted Cruz affairs scandal.

Trump has vocalized his concern about the potential of a contested convention in August. He warned that there would be dire consequences if the GOP establishment attempted to undermine his campaign in a brokered convention this summer.

“I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots,” Trump said Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day.” “I’m representing a tremendous many, many millions of people.”

Trump is counting on his zealous supporters to back him in the event of a brokered convention. With this open carry petition circulating, his supporters may be requesting permission to bring guns to this potential riot.

Nothing seems more dangerous than challenging armed members of Trump’s army of uneducated supporters. It is bad enough attempting to reason with supporters of Trump’s unsubstantiated promises. Imagine arguing with an angry delegate whose finger is on a loaded pistol. It could get uglier than people fighting over the last Tickle-Me-Elmo on Black Friday at WalMart.

This petition is making noise and not much else. Other GOP candidates have yet to respond to this growing open carry convention movement. Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have not commented on the issue of guns inside the GOP convention.
