And you thought it was hot in Toronto.
Some members of The New Black Panther Party are planning to pack heat at rallies in Cleveland next week during the Republican convention.
The organization informed Reuters that they will bring these weapons only for self-defense, if Ohio’s open-carry gun laws permit them to.
Chairman Hashim Nzinga says they will exercise their Second Amendment rights “because there are other groups threatening to be there that are threatening to do harm to us.”
Protesters will be permitted to bring registered guns to gatherings outside the convention. While permits are required for concealed handguns, the same does not hold true for guns clearly displayed.
Do open-carry gun laws create a safer and more civil society?
