More than 20,000 sign petition to allow guns at Republican National Convention

The petition says Cleveland is a violent city and cites the threat of terrorism and all three Republican candidates’ opposition to gun-free zones as reasons why attendees should be allowed to carry inside the arena.

“We are all too familiar with the mass carnage that can occur when citizens are denied their basic God-given rights to carry handguns or assault weapons in public,” the petition reads.

The petition asks Ohio governor and GOP presidential hopeful John Kasich to use his executive authority to override Ohio’s “gun-free zone” laws.

And supporters would like RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to explain why a “gun-free” venue was chosen for the Republican convention and to communicate a contingency plan to relocate the convention if nothing changes.
