Carry at Trump Cruz rally in Houston on Monday

#1

Post by philip964 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 4:46 pm

So Ted and Donald are getting together for a big rally in Houston this Monday at 6:30.

Trump is handling the tickets in his website. Free. First come first serve. No limit to number of tickets, but max 18,000 seats.

Lots of don’t bring items mentioned, but no mention of licensed concealed carry.

Is that just understood or is the Toyota Center posted already.

I would assume since the POTUS will be in attendance firearms would not be allowed.

I heard on the radio (740 AM I think) that because the Secret Service was there no firearms would be allowed. They didn't cite the policy or statute.

They mention selfie sticks and detachable lenses, but not handguns.

Is this a avoid a news story in the press?

Just like the NRA convention in Dallas, when the POTUS is there, Secret service makes the rules. No concealed or open carry in the venue where the POTUS is.

I’m surprised it’s not a NRG Stadium, they could fill it.

Yes, but some number of those were requested by Democrats who were hoping to reserve tickets, not show up, and have the rally look half full. One such person proudly offered me her tickets (typical bitter/angry leftist).

Toyota Center posted. Saw the sign as I came in tonight.

Every seat taken. Supposedly 20,000 outside.

Deplorable girls choir.

I'm glad I didn't waste my time.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Does anyone know what law they use to enforce this, or is it just common knowledge? I’ve heard the same thing, it’s just interesting that they aren’t required to post signs or anything of the sort.

Federal law gives the Secret Service the authority. As others noted, this came up at the Republican convention in 2016:

"Title 18 United States Code Sections 3056 and 1752 provides the Secret Service authority to preclude firearms from entering sites visited by our protectees, including those located in open-carry states," Secret Service spokesman Robert K. Hoback said in a statement. "Only authorized law enforcement personnel working in conjunction with the Secret Service for a particular event may carry a firearm inside of the protected site."

1752 in part:

I will be voting for both men, but I'm not a big enough fan of either to give up my RKBA just to see them speak in person.
