■Class discussion: Would it be wise to allow guns at a political convention that could be hotly contested? What gun laws have Republican lawmakers passed around the country? Have they favored or opposed restrictions on carrying firearms? Where have new laws ended restrictions on carrying guns on college campuses or in schools, churches, theaters or bars? Is it safer when nearly everyone can carry a gun nearly everywhere? Are Republicans being hypocritical? Is the petition an attempt to embarrass the GOP?
