Today, a few anti-gun organizations (and the Associated Press) sent out tweets claiming that the National Rifle Association (NRA) had supposedly banned firearms and ammunition from its annual meeting.
Attendees of Trump's NRA speech had to check their guns at the door: https://t.co/PA5Y9FtSjD— AP Politics (@AP_Politics) April 28, 2017
However, one small problem: it's fake news. The NRA doesn't ban these things, the Secret Service did during President Trump's speech. People were otherwise allowed to carry weapons throughout the event.
Once again: These are Secret Service rules. The NRA does not impose these rules anywhere at the convention. https://t.co/nSsedDXRzQ— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) April 28, 2017
