Cleveland police union asks for suspension of 'open carry' in wake of Baton Rouge, ahead of RNC - CNNPolitics.com

Unbelievable. What a knee jerk reaction. They should allow open carry not only in cleveland but in the republican convention. What if isis shows up? the only way to stop bad guys and corrupt cops with guns is to arm the good guys.

Agreed 150,000%. ****ing Fascists..............

Seems like a pretty reasonable short term security measure.

The hard left and hard right have no idea what to do right now. Do they unquestionably support the police or do they condemn them for trying to be too authoritarian?

You do have a point, this might be the last best chance to remove Trump before the nomination.

You think an open carry ban would stop these violent cop killers? As if they'd care?

Wow.

There's enough pent up emotion at this point, not sure if it would change much, if anything.
There are going to be purposeful agitators, which may (probably likely) erupt into violence.

Restricting peoples freedom because cops are scared is illogical. If Cleveland cops are scared of doing their job then they should quit, not ask for people to have less freedoms because of their fears.

Wow.

It sure as **** would make it easier to identify who was involved. Remember that guy at the march in Dallas who was thought to be a suspect initially because he showed up with his rifle?

This would have been an interesting topic, but your troll post reduced it to nothing at all.

ISIS? So were people fretting that AlQaeda would show up in the 2004 GOP convention?
Were they fretting the Vietcong would show up in the 1972 GOP convention?

I thought security is concentrated around this event, to prevent incidents.

If ordinary amateurs start firing their weapons, there'll be tons of friendly fire deaths.

Unless of course they were smart and hid the rifle in a bag.
