Vice President Pence will deliver the keynote address at the annual NRA convention in Dallas on Friday in front of an audience that won't be carrying any guns.

NRA members are also to hear from Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, the pro-Trump black social media propagandists known as Diamond & Silk, who have accepted money from white nationalist Paul Nehlen, a neo-Nazi candidate running to replace Speaker Paul Ryan in the Wisconsin congressional election. The organization's leader Wayne LaPierre will take the stage to address members.

The NRA-ILA Leadership Forum will begin Thursday in Dallas, Texas.

He added, "I wish my daughter and others murdered by guns had the same protection". "Because it sounds like the NRA wants to protect people who help them sell guns, not kids". On its website's event page, the NRA says the Secret Service will be in charge of security, therefore "firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind" are banned before and during Pence's appearance. It's standard for the Secret Service to bar firearms from being carried into places visited by the people they protect, regardless of state laws. "According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public". They've got protests planned throughout the four-day convention.

March for our Lives organizers are calling the ban on guns at the forum hypocritical, while gun advocates question the group's integrity.

Lebanese Interior Ministry: Calm Elections Kick off
Lebanon's parliamentary make-up reflects the amalgamation of communities, religions and sects living side-by-side in the country. At midday, after casting his ballot in southern Beirut , President Michel Aoun described the process as "successful".


NRA banned nothing. The media does this every year.

Trump is scheduled to speak Friday at the annual gathering in Dallas.

The FBI is investigating whether Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of the Bank of Russian Federation, illegally funneled money to the NRA, of which he is a paid lifetime member, to assist the Trump campaign in 2016.

The irony was not lost on some Parkland students and parents.

The NRA and many gun rights activists promote a pure understanding of the Second Amendment.
