AP issues correction on report that NRA banned guns for Mike Pence speech

[Ed. – Even if the story were accurate, how can it be ‘hypocritical’ if it’s not the NRA’s policy but the Secret Service’s?]

The Associated Press issued a correction on Monday after reporting that the National Rifle Association was banning guns at its annual meeting during Vice President Mike Pence’s speech.

It was widely reported on Monday that the guns rights group would not allow members to carry guns at the NRA Leadership Conference in Dallas “prior to and during” Mr. Pence’s speech on May 4.

“Due to the attendance of the Vice President of the United States, the U.S. Secret Service will be responsible for event security at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum,” the NRA said in a statement. “As a result, firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during attendance.”
