A petition to allow the open carry of firearms at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland had more than 25,000 signatures Saturday evening.
Ohio is an open-carry state, but Quicken Loans Arena, where the convention is set to be held, bans all weapons on the property. Ohio's concealed carry law allows private entities from banning firearms on their property, according to the arena's policies.
The Gadfly is all for this wonderful idea. In fact - they ought also to make it open bar night --- free booze for all! And one can only pray that when the first drunk redneck drops one of his precious cap pistols and it fires off a round, all 25,000 yahoos will instantly whip out their toys and begin madly slinging lead at each other in a circular firing squad formation until every last round is spent.
The Gadfly tells you one thing dear readers, if such a scenario were to play out, the collective IQ of this nation would rise instantly by about 30 points.
Just sayin' . . . .
