Petition launched to allow open carry of guns at GOP Convention in Cleveland

- Will people attending the Republican Convention in Cleveland be packing some serious heat this July? A new petition has been launched on change.org for allowing the open carry of guns at Quicken Loans Arena.

The petition states that "though Ohio is an open carry state, which allows for the open carry of guns, the hosting venue strictly forbids the carry of firearms on their premises."

They call this "a direct affront to the Second Amendment".

So far, more than 40,000 people have signed it. 

Donald Trump was asked about the petition...he says he wants to study it carefully before weighing in.
