    Does anybody really expect Gov. Kasich to approve this?

    I don't think that I'd CCW there. I'd likely set off a metal detector.

    The concepts of choosing battles wisely and of spinning the wheels and getting no where both spring to mind with this petition.

    Really???

    First... I would expect the laws prohibiting firearms in polling places would apply.

    Secondly.... Do you guys not see that this is VERY likely a False Flag Operation?

    Will the terrorists and the anti-Americans be disarmed also?

    Ummmm........no. Considering that tensions will already be high, now you want to inject people who may or may not be responsible gun owners into an already emotionally charged atmosphere? Like putting a match in charge of dynamite with fuse.

    If one is that concerned about their own safety at the convention you certainly do have the option to stay away and watch it on TV.

    I agree, but just so we're clear, this is an argument that civilian guns can (or should) be banned from places where "tensions will already be high," right?

    The governor can't change the law, this would be a legislature thing. Surprising how many people don't know that apparently. Well, not really.

    Inside the Q, yes. Outside everyone is free to go armed as they want.

    Has nothing to do with "polling places". Ohio allows private property owners to restrict firearms.

    I understand that. But, even if the property owner DID "allow" it, the law (banning guns in polling places) would supersede it.... rendering the point moot.

    Again... I'm surprised I'm (so far) the only one who sees this as an OBVIOUS False Flag Operation.

    Just to clarify it is private property. And we are talking about law abiding gun owners as well as permit holders. I think we can be adult enough to carry even if we don't like the results of something.

    People will have to go to the convention unarmed through protesters and other potentially violent situations. Not to mention the various threats from overseas. The candidates have armed protection but are not worried about us being denied our own protection?

    What kind of Hillary voter doesn't know that acts passed by the Ohio legislature are still subject to the approval or veto of Ohio's Governor, as are federal acts subject to the signature or veto of the President? Don't schoolkids study civics anymore?

    I am a huge gun rights person. I carry everywhere possible. However, this seems like it would be a security nightmare.

    They should certainly provide storage lockers for guns, but I think the secret service would throw a fit about this.
