    Mitt Romney to campaign in Virginia Beach Sunday OC related.

    http://www.wvec.com/my-city/vabeach/...175457331.html
    VIRGINIA BEACH -- Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is returning to Hampton Roads this weekend.

    Romney will attend a rally Sunday, Oct. 28 at the Farm Bureau Live Amphitheater in Virginia Beach.

    The doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the event will begin at 8:15 p.m
    I got ticekts to go then I notice on the paper it said, "All attendees will go through airport-like security"
    No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids or signs will be allowed in the venue. Cameras are permitted.

    I see nothing about guns, do you think I would get kicked out for OCing?

    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Yep and it is private property so preemption doesn't apply.
    The time I was there, they looked in every bag, purse and backpack.

    Just to save you a little time in the future, there are no places or circumstances under which the general public will ever be allowed in the immediate vicinity of a presidential candidate under Secret Service protection without having been cleared for weapons.

    There are no laws at any level of government which will override this simple fact.

    And no, I'm not going to waste the time it would take to look up the cite for it, because this is one of those cases where the cite really doesn't matter.

    You can bet that both Obama and Romney will be campaigning in all of them during the next 2 weeks while this chess game reaches its endgame.

    Obama just gave up on NC and is working on Wisconsin. Virginia is still borderline.

    I'm pretty sure I like the University of Colorado's electoral map prediction model more than I like the HuffPo's model.
