There are five sections of the platform that weren’t passed. That means the delegates are debating them and considering amendments now.

They just narrowly passed an amendment to add “we reserve the individual right, granted by the Second Amendment, to keep and bear arms” to the first section of the platform. The standing vote had to be counted twice.

Then they passed another amendment to change “granted” to “recognized.”
