At the recent National Rifle Association annual convention in Philadelphia, the NRA banned its own members from carrying guns into the convention. The NRA said it has a policy against people carrying guns at its conventions even if the person has a concealed weapon license.

Say what? The NRA doesn't trust its own members to carry guns at their own convention, but it thinks members should be able to carry concealed guns in public around the rest of us in our schools, in mental hospitals, at Jazz games, even in church.What hypocrisy.
