In response to a 44,500-signature petition to allow firearms at the Republican National Convention, the Secret Service announced Monday that it would be putting the kibosh on the movement.
The petition to allow guns into the Quicken Loans Center in Cleveland, Ohio, an open-carry state, originally posted to Change.org, is believed to be satirical, but no less garnered widespread support and attention.
Enforcing the ban in a statement to a local Cleveland outlet, ABC5, the Secret Service cited Title 18, U.S. Code Sections 3056 and 1752, which, “provides the Secret Service authority to preclude firearms from entering sites visited by our protectees, including those located in open-carry states.”
