       Dallas official to NRA Take your convention elsewhere

"I have five guns", Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway said Monday.

Caraway is just the latest public official to call out the NRA, and the conservative politicians the organization supports, following the shooting at a Florida high school last Wednesday that left 17 people dead.

Caraway on Monday also mentioned the ambush murder of five Dallas police officers in July 2016 and invoked the 1963 John F. Kennedy assassination in Dallas, according to Fox 4 News.

"It is time to put the heat on the NRA and demand that they work with elected officials in our country to establish gun laws that protect our children and keep our communities safe", he said. We have got to take on the NRA.

The annual NRA event is scheduled for May 4-6 in Dallas. "The Courier-Journal reported that the city enjoyed a "$53 million economic impact" from the convention and 80,000 attendees.




The convention, scheduled to be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, will reportedly include firearms displays and exhibits. "And it's time for us to listen and it's time for Trump and every elected official in Washington and U.S. on every level to stand up and speak out against this type of violence". "Assault rifles and weapons should be for our military and police".

"If you are ever confronted with a gun of any kind, the AR-15 or just a gun, that is something that you will remember for the rest of your life and these 14, 15 year-old kids, their lives are in tragic shatters", he said.

Noem released this statement today saying, "We understand the freedoms and liberties that come with defending our second amendment, how it allows us to protect our families and carry on South Dakota's cherished hunting traditions".

He also said he was not speaking for the city council, of which he is a member. But of course I'm concerned about the image of Dallas as the host of this convention. "Hopefully we will take the opportunity in Dallas to engage in meaningful dialogue about how we work together to end mass killings in America".

The NRA responded swiftly to Caraway's request.
