03 May 2018

Plans for the NRA speech come just more than two months after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, reignited a national debate about gun laws in the United States and spawned a student-led push to reform gun laws around the country.

Matt Deitsch, an organizer of the March for Our Lives, replied to Kasky's tweet by bashing the gun foyer for desirous to "defend individuals who assist them promote weapons, not children".

Weapons will be prohibited in the hall during President Trump's speech, which will come later in the Dallas convention.

This step drew plenty of criticism from gun control advocates who believe that stricter gun laws should restrict guns in many areas throughout the US including schools, churches, and other public places. Deitsch wrote. "Can someone explain this to me?"

"He made a decision to be in the wrong room with the wrong audience, especially if he's looking for votes and support", Oliver said. Pence had already been slated to speak at the group's leadership forum.
