About 40 or 50 protesters showed up to the second day of the NRA convention in Houston, Texas.
They held signs and mostly stood in silent protest across the street from the convention center.
On the other side of the street NRA members watched and sometimes shouted at protesters. I went to that side and asked gun owners to write a message to the protesters.
Here’s what they wrote:
“Guns protect your children”
- The South Carolina Senate voted 37-3 in the first vote to remove the Confederate battle flag from statehouse grounds. The bill is expected to pass a two-thirds majority in its third reading on Tuesday, then move to the House.
- Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he obtained sedatives to give to women he wanted to have sex with, the AP reports.
