In addition, Hogg and others started a false narrative that the NRA will not allow people with weapons and guns into the Convention. And actually, the Associated Press jumped on this bandwagon early on and had to retract because it was not true. The truth is that the NRA said the U.S. Secret Service will coordinate security for the Pence speech and will not allow weapons in the arena while he is present. This was the case last year when President Trump was a speaker at the NRA convention. However, weapons will not be banned from the rest of the convention.
Please take this opportunity to let Vice President Pence know that we are behind his speech and support his first amendment rights and our second amendment rights. We have tweets for you and appreciate your help and support.

1 @Mike_pence @NRA We support your speech at the NRA convention just like we support the second amendment and also the first amendment. Since when does an 18 year old demand that a sitting VP can't make a speech?
4 @NRA @Mike_pence David Hogg's spreading a false narrative that the NRA'll ban guns during Pence's speech on May 4 at NRA Convention. This is a blatant lie. Truth: Secret Service coordinates security for the speech & won't allow weapons in the arena.
