Gun Free Zone-Free

Yesterday morning, the dedicated staff of the Hyperationalist launched the petition posted below. We have since collected 1,500 signatures and the pace seems to be picking up. Clearly we have struck a nerve.

Please head on over to and sign your name to this extremely important cause. Share the petition on Facebook, Twitter, or wherever else you like to social mediatize. Here’s a shortened link for you:


SUMMARY: In July of 2016, the GOP will host its convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Though Ohio is an open carry state, which allows for the open carry of guns, the hosting venue—the Quicken Loans Arena—strictly forbids the carry of firearms on their premises.

According to the policy on their website, “firearms and other weapons of any kind are strictly forbidden on the premises of Quicken Loans Arena.”

This is a direct affront to the Second Amendment and puts all attendees at risk. As the National Rifle Association has made clear, “gun-free zones” such as the Quicken Loans Arena are “the worst and most dangerous of all lies.” The NRA, our leading defender of gun rights, has also correctly pointed out that “gun free zones… tell every insane killer in America… (the) safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk.” (March 4, 2016 and Dec. 21, 2012)

Cleveland, Ohio is consistently ranked as one of the top ten most dangerous cities in America. By forcing attendees to leave their firearms at home, the RNC and Quicken Loans Arena are putting tens of thousands of people at risk both inside and outside of the convention site.

This doesn’t even begin to factor in the possibility of an ISIS terrorist attack on the arena during the convention. Without the right to protect themselves, those at the Quicken Loans Arena will be sitting ducks, utterly helpless against evil-doers, criminals or others who wish to threaten the American way of life.
All three remaining Republican candidates have spoken out on the issue and are unified in their opposition to Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s “gun-free zones.”

Donald Trump said “I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools—you have—and on military bases on my first day. It gets signed my first day…you know what a gun-free zone is to a sicko? That’s bait.” (Jan. 8. 2016)

Ted Cruz has accurately pointed out “shooting after shooting after shooting happens in so called gun-free zones.” He continued, “look, if you’re a lunatic ain’t nothing better then having a bunch of targets you know that are going to be unarmed.” (Dec. 4, 2015)

And Ohio Governor John Kasich has been a leader in this movement to eliminate deadly “gun-free zones” starting with his brave decision to fight the Democrats and end “gun-free zones” at National Guard facilities in Ohio. (Dec. 18, 2015)

We are all too familiar with the mass carnage that can occur when citizens are denied their basic God-given rights to carry handguns or assault weapons in public. EVERY AMERICAN HAS THE RIGHT TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THEIR FAMILY. With this irresponsible and hypocritical act of selecting a “gun-free zone” for the convention, the RNC has placed its members, delegates, candidates and all US citizens in grave danger.

We must take a stand. We cannot allow the national nominating convention of the party of Lincoln and Reagan to be hijacked by weakness and political correctness. The policies of the Quicken Loans Arena do not supersede the rights given to us by our Creator in the U.S. Constitution.


  1. From the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland: A suspension of their policy preventing the open carry of firearms on the premises of the arena from July 18-21, 2016 to coincide with the Republican National Convention.
  2. From the National Rifle Association: An immediate condemnation of the egregious affront to the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution constituted by the “gun-free zone” loophole to the state law.
  3. From Ohio Governor John Kasich: A concerted effort to use his executive authority to override the “gun-free zone” loophole being exploited by the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
  4. From Reince Priebus and the Republican National Committee: An explanation of how a venue so unfriendly to Second Amendment rights was chosen for the Republican Convention. Further, we demand a contingency plan to relocate the convention to another location should the Quicken Loans Arena refuse to honor the constitutional rights of the RNC guests to open carry firearms during the convention.
  5. From all Republican candidates for President: You have been brave in raising awareness about the immense dangers posed by “gun-free zones.” In order to ensure the safety of your supporters, delegates and all attendees at the convention in July, you must call upon the RNC to rectify this affront to our Second Amendment freedoms and insist upon a suspension of the Quicken Loans Arena’s unconstitutional “gun-free zone” loophole. Every American is endowed with a God-given Constitutional right to carry a gun wherever and whenever they please.

  1. You are totally out of your mind….how stupid are you that you need to carry a gun everywhere thinking people or Isis is out to get you…. no wonder USA is going backwards, Donald Drumpf as POTUS candidate and Gun wielding idiots wanting to carry deadly weapons everywhere. Tell me what happens when a suicide bomber blows himself up, do you just start randomly shooting anyone or ?..


  2. Don’t you think the Secret Service would be a little nervous about trying to protect the candidate in this kind of situation?


  3. You might have been opening a can of worms, but it turned out to be a can of……velociraptors or something similar.

    Nice work!


  4. I agree since the “Republicans” are the party of the “2nd Amendment”. Hey they won’t need the secret service since everyone has a gun at the GOP convention. That’s less BIG government spending. It’s a win-win.


  5. Hyper: when is the libtard media going to confront Wayne LaPierre about this? The NRA should be front and center supporting your petition — if they remain neutral we might as well just melt all our firearms and make an Obama statue with them. Since when can the Secret Service usurp our God-given Constitutional Right to Bear Arms?


  6. Dear Friend, You are a bonifide genius. I bow in your general direction. I hope they squirm all the way to the podium to explain why this is a bad idea. Personally, since gun free zones are so unsafe and all, I think every attendee should demand that the secret service stand down and let our gun totin’, flag wavin’, Budweiser drinkin’ good ol’ boys do all the protectin’. You betcha! I bow in your general direction.


  7. (copied from my Facebook account comment re: Um, hi.) Gun Free Zone -vs- Gun Show? Everyone is concerned that the phenomenon of Lexington Green will repeat at the RNC in Cleveland this year if it isn’t a gun free zone. Well, my take on this is “bring ’em if you got ’em”, but don’t load ’em ’til you need ’em. Only authorized delegates and vetted support personnel will be admitted to this event. Vetting attendees based on their credentials is simple enough, and verifying that any weapons are cleared (no rounds in the chamber or cylinder or loaded magazines attached to weapons) can be done at the same time. That is called a compromise, and everyone should be able to live with that. Somebody is going to suggest checking weapons like you check your hat and coat, but they will be missing the point. Non-attendees may mill about outside and do the usual demonstrations for their candidate or cause, and if there are any conflicts that is where they will most likely occur. If anyone is determined to start trouble in the middle of an armed camp, they will find it, and they will not get the chance to reload. Final word: law enforcement cannot protect everyone, so It is better that they be able to protect themselves.
