ChimpMitten: In five weeks, the Republican National Convention will get underway in Tampa, Florida - and, due to a state law restricting municipal firearms regulations and Gov. Rick Scott's (R-FL) unwillingness to provide the city a waiver from that law, legal firearms will be permitted all around the convention center (though not inside of it).

So the actual convention itself is a gun free zone?

When it's THEIR lives on the line gun control is a good idea. Not when it's just peasants.

I think everyone going to that convention should be armed.
Just in case someone else is.

Mugato: I talked to my mom who lives in Tampa the other day. It's a freaking mad house with this farking convention. They're re-routing pedestrian traffic. She has a friend who lives near the stadium, she won't be able to walk to get to the supermarket, forget driving. She's taking the week off and fleeing. Thanks republicans for farking up that area.

I was wondering why they would have this thing in an area that can't support it and it occurred to me, the movie Magic Mike is based on a real male strip club in Tampa. Coincidence?

What do they even do at these things? And who would go to such an event, Democrat or Republican?

Tampa was pissed they got passed over in 2004 and 2008. I'll have to dig for the source cause it's kind of old now, but some city rep was biatching and saying the GOP "owed" (his words) FL after delivering the Presidency in 2000.

It will take approximately 90 days to obtain an out-of-state concealed carry permit after the application is submitted.

For people wanting to actually legally bring a gun to the RNC it probably would have been a good idea to publish this article I dunno, 5 months ago?

Florida is seriously a great place to host the RNC though. Full of whack-jobs.
