So… the Republican National Convention is being held in Tampa this election cycle. And the organizers want to make the convention safe for the conventioneers as they elect Mitt Romney to run against Obama. Unfortunately, they can't override Florida's ridiculous gun laws.
So at the end of the day, here's what is permissible and impermissible at the convention site:
A water gun
An air gun
A metal pipe
String more than 6 inches long
An actual fully loaded concealed gun
