Tampa Seeks Gun Ban During RNC
PHOTOS.COM
Tampa officials are worried about people toting guns to the Republican National Convention.

Many Republicans are ardent supporters of 2nd Amendment rights, but those who are planning to attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., may have to leave their guns at home despite State laws favorable to concealed carry.

Tampa officials are worried about people toting guns to the RNC, and they want to eliminate their fears by executive order. The City Council voted Thursday to ask Republican Governor Rick Scott to help them temporarily ban concealed weapons during the event.

The city leaders have already proposed a host of banned items including lumber, hatchets, gas masks, chains and “super soaker” water cannons but are prevented from outlawing concealed guns because of State concealed carry laws. They say guns must not be allowed because of the political volatility of the event and the chance of large protests.

Charlotte, N.C., is expected to pursue similar anti-gun initiatives for the Democratic National Convention in spite of that State’s laws that allow for concealed carry.

you can still hide a gas mask hatchet and even a supersoaker in your coat.

Seems like our right to self defense is only effective in times of no 'political volatility' and no 'large protests' occurring.

Seems to me that those would be the times when I would most want to be able to defend myself...

Huh. I guess the almighty state knows best! Confused

Not surprising. Tampa doesn't want an "incident" during the convention.
Can't blame them. Look at the fiasco in Sanford Park.

The gun ban was rejected. Let me find the article.
