Security concerns, about holding a convention in a state where open carry of weapons is legal, has prompted the G.O.P. to consult with the N.R.A. about possible repercussions from holding their Convention in Cleveland. The N.R.A. has responded by informing the GOP that their corporate sponsors feel that there is adequate protective legislation to shield them from product liability lawsuits, but more importantly there is an adequate availability, in stock, to handle any expected increase in sales should a serious incident stoke a fear that weapon sales might be curtailed. The NRA has given the GOP a green light to go forward with the Convention.
