... we'll call it irony:
"Firearms WILL NOT be allowed in Hall A during the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum."
At the National Rifle Association's annual convention yesterday in Louisville, KY, convention-goers could not get in if they were packing heat or blades. We understand, because the scheduled speakers included presumptive Republican nominee John McCain, and the Secret Service sets the rules in such circumstances. Even NRA big shots had to go through the screening. Thousands found themselves standing in a long, slow, feeder line before they even reached one of the lines that stretched in front of each metal detector.
