The New Black Panther Party says its members will carry guns during its Republican National Convention protests if it is legally allowed to by Ohio law. Hashim Nzinga, chairman of the party, recently told Reuters, quote, “If it is an open state to carry, we will exercise our second amendment rights because there are other groups threatening to be there that are threatening to do harm to us.” According to Ohio officials, it is legal for them to do so. Nzinga expects hundreds of members of the New Black Panthers Party to join black protesters at the convention in Cleveland. Some Donald Trump supporters have also said they plan to carry arms to the convention protests.
