I hate to admit it, but I AM bad person.
I suspected the Change.org petition to allow guns into the GOP convention, which got over 53,000 signatures, was actually started by a lefty when I first saw it. April fools day was coming fast, but somebody jumped the gun I guess.
In my defense, you can’t say the right hasn’t opened themselves up for this sort of impossible-to-parody parody. It is just plain plausible, no matter how you word it. The Secret Service probably didn’t want to inject themselves into the joke, but felt compelled to put an end to any speculation that a single gun would be allowed into the “Quicken Loans Arena” this July.
It was fun, imagining what might happen though. I even saw myself showing up, popping a paper bag and ducking. I already admitted I was a bad person.
