The Media predicted a bloodbath at the RNC due to the insane laws that permit people to (gasp!!) openly carry firearms .
The news papers all jumped on the Police Union's concern over the open carry law:
CNN: "Cleveland police union asks for suspension of 'open carry' in wake of Baton Rouge, ahead of RNC."
Yahoo!: "Police union: Open carry of guns should be suspended at Republican convention in Cleveland."
The Washington Post: "Police union calls for open-carry gun ban as fears of violence mount ahead of the GOP convention
Well, of course the results are in: it was the safest political convention in years.
Very few arrests. Zero violent demonstrations. No shootings.
The only thing in danger from people peacefully exercising their rights is the wrong headed ideas of the Left.
The open carry laws may not have prevented violence -- there are many other reasons why the Left chose not to demonstrate at the RNC -- but it is proven once again that law abiding citizens possessing firearms are not the problem in this country.
