A White House spokesperson said the White House is "finalizing exact details", but declined to comment on plans for the President to address the gun rights group.

The NRA posted a disclaimer about the event, saying because of Pence's attendance, Secret Service was in charge of security and that "firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance", Morin wrote.

"There will be no storage for firearms", the NRA says in the announcement.

Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the NRA-ILA leadership forum in Dallas this week, but the Secret Service's gun ban has sparked a debate.

"AP has deleted a tweet that incorrectly said the NRA had banned guns during Trump and Pence speeches at its annual meeting", the newswire said.

Cameron Kasky, a student from Parkland, Florida and co-founder of the March for Our Lives campaign, called out the NRA for becoming "such a hilarious parody of itself". County Judge Clay Jenkins is hosting a forum Thursday for local students to "voice their concerns" about the convention.

Much has changed in the American debate about guns since the last NRA convention in Texas in 2013, the largest in recent memory, which drew more than 81,000 people.

I will, however, keep everything as vague as possible, allowing for general thoughts about the film itself. "I don't want to go". The average swing among the movies that were more spaced out? He's complicated yet thoughtful; emotional yet ruthless.

Alex Wind, a Marjory Stoneman pupil and a founding member of the By no means Once more motion, responded to experiences that the president additionally will communicate on the NRA assembly.

"Wait wait wait wait wait wait you're telling me to make the VP safe there aren't any weapons around but when it comes to children they want guns everywhere?" Deitsch wrote. "Can someone explain this to me?"

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch took to Twitter to lambaste the news media for mischaracterizing the NRA's role in prohibiting weapons in Pence's presence.

Trump spoke at the convention during both years of his presidential run and during his first year in the White House, when he thanked gun enthusiasts for their support during the 2016 election. "Because it sounds like the NRA wants to protect people who help them sell guns, not kids".

The national convention "brings together our nation's top Second Amendment leaders in government, the media, and the entertainment industry", according to the NRA.

"We're expecting in the thousands and we're expecting our numbers to go up with him coming to town", Alexander said of Trump.

Alice Tripp, an NRA member and the legislative director of the membership-based Texas State Rifle Association, said she sees "not even a little bit" of a problem with attendees not being able to carry guns during that portion of the meeting.
