    Legally no.

    There is always a way to lawyer out of something. Mundanes must NOT be armed around their rulers/gods. They'll figure out a way to do it as this is a fairly anti-gun state despite impressions, especially in cities like Tampa.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    ""The absurdity of banning squirt guns but not being able to do anything about real guns is patently obvious," Buckhorn said Thursday. "Given the nature and the potential dynamic of this event, I think it would make sense that you would not want firearms introduced into that environment by people other than law enforcement."


    ...The real absurdity here, is someone going into public, and with a straight-face, actually suggesting "banning" any bloody thing.Who is he to "ban" anything? And what, on earth, gives the guy the idea that "banning" a weapon he would never see, unless brought out and used, would even be enforcible -short of x-rays and metal-detectors and pat-downs of everyone coming around?
    Amazing the level of idiocy, sometimes, that gets voted into such positions..

    "So while Tampa plans to ban a wide range of weapons (clubs, switchblades, Mace) and things that could be used as weapons (chains, glass bottles, water pistols) outside the convention, it cannot prohibit guns carried with a concealed weapons permit."




    Further, when is the last time anyone has actually seen folks walking around on Florida streets with chains, clubs, switchblades (rly?? switchblades???) or WATER-PISTOLS? Dude has been watching way too many 1970's low-budget movies...
