Editor's note:The headline and text for this story were changed to clarify that the NRA says the Secret Service made the decision to ban guns from convention events where Vice President Pence and President Trump are expected to appear.
In 2017 the NRA's lobbying efforts focused on a number of bills including the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which would allow people to carry concealed weapons across state lines as long as they are registered in their home state, and the Hearing Protection Act of 2017, which would eliminate restrictions on silencers for guns.
Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter, Jaime, was among the 17 people killed in the massacre, noted the irony in the policies concerning the vice president's welfare and those of the general public. Several emails were attached to the NRA's filing, including one dated February 28 saying, "Next time I hope it's someone in your family looking down the barrel of a gun or shot in the back trying to flee some great Floridian". Texas is an open-carry state. "Am I missing something?" he asked on Twitter. The more guns you have, the less safe you are.
