President Trump and VP Mike Pence spoke at the NRA convention in Dallas today, and the Michael Bloomberg-funded gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety is continuing to run with this discredited attempt to find hypocrisy among 2nd Amendment supporters:

FAIL. But nice try, Everytown:
I'm sorry, are you new here? It's always been the policy of the Secret Service to not allow people with firearms (other than Secret Service) around the president. https://t.co/YDRYsooAPj

Once again the blithering idiocy of the Left is manifested in a single tweet.
It is Secret Service Policy to provide armed security to all events attended by the POTUS and VP. Firearms are therefore prohibited. This is neither unusual or an exception to normal OPSEC.

The Associated Press had to issue a correction after having initially taken that approach in a recent story:
AP has deleted a tweet that incorrectly said the NRA had banned guns during Trump and Pence speeches at its annual meeting. The ban was put in place by the Secret Service. A corrected tweet is coming.

And if Everytown actually believes “guns make us safer” has been suspended for Trump’s speech, that might come as a surprise to the countless Secret Service agents and police in and near the venue.
There are plenty of guns at the NRA convention, they're carried by the same Secret Service that banned civilians from carrying at the convention. https://t.co/0Z6DXvtb5Y

Try learning how the secret service works. Trust me, there's plenty of guns in the room. https://t.co/uXHdhWmnge

But why do people like Everytown keep pushing that lie? Because people keep buying it.

The NRA Convention is a gun-free zone. …kinda kills the argument that gun-free zones are a safety risk. https://t.co/zHHN74uuaI

We need a new word for hypocrisy in this instance. Trumpocrisy? Is that a word?

Even Trump supporters should recognize the hypocrisy of this–or they just don't care. https://t.co/cCvuJPcBkl
