Wow. So Sebastian is in the Firearms Law Seminar with no power and no wifi, and I just sat down in the Leadership Forum with many of the other bloggers here at the Blog Bash.
This city has never seen an event so big. It’s a massive infusion of money into their economy. So how do they greet us? By asking us not to shoot them. Fan-freakin’-tastic. That makes me never want to even visit Charlotte again.
As Jim Geraghty (who is sitting in front of me), points out today, they also call it a massive right-wing convention while we have speakers like the Democratic governor, Congressman Heath Shuler, and my favorite Oklahoma Congressman Dan Boren.
As a matter of space, I’m not sure Charlotte could host the event again. They had to cancel the banquet this year because there is no space large enough. It’s now another speaking event. The arena is already packed, with a full floor and up the sides. There are huge lines outside. It’s a great day to be an NRA member, even if Charlotte is a little small for our needs.
