  •  One of the prouder moments for Columbus (IMO) (6+ / 0-)

    was having the NRA pull their national convention because the city enacted its own assault weapon ban:

    Looking to punish this city for enacting a ban on assault weapons, the National Rifle Association announced on Monday that it had canceled plans to hold its national convention here in 2007, an event that was expected to pump more than $15 million into the local economy.
    Among the reasons for the Columbus ban was an attempt to fill the gap left by the expiring Clinton-era ban and to refine it a bit.  

    For the record, here's the upcoming NRA convention schedule as best I can determine:

    Houston: May 3-5, 2013
    Indianapolis: April 25-27, 2014
    Nashville: April 10-12, 2015
    Louisville, KY: 2016

    America: still a developing country.
