BREAKING: New Black Panther Party will carry arms during protests at U.S. Republican National Convention if legal – group chairman

Open carry is legal in Ohio with other groups already planning to carry weapons during their demonstrations as well:
Officials in Ohio have said it will be legal for protesters to carry weapons at demonstrations outside the convention under the state’s “open carry” laws. Several other groups, including some supporters of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, have said they will carry weapons in protests as well, leading to concerns about rival groups being armed in close proximity.
The Republican convention begins July 18.
Also, NE Ohio is a big trucking/commerce/travel hub. Keep this sort of bullshit in mind when traveling this summer (all over the nation), but especially come next week’s RNC convention in this region…
Over the weekend, Black Lives Matter protests shut down several major highways across the nation and there’s a recurring scene in almost every one — semi trucks unwillingly taken hostage as a prop for protesters.
As protesters took their cause to march, severe traffic was a concern to all those on the road. But truck drivers faced a more serious problem when demonstrators stampeded their big rigs.
Remember during the 1992 Rodney King dust-up innocent truck driver Reginald Denny was dragged from the cockpit of his 18-wheeler by multiple rioting thugs and nearly beaten and stomped to death while the nation watched…
I’m sure the Hollywood whores who write and produce the despicable “Purge” shit movies are salivating this summer for the next movie sequel fodder.
