Bring Your Guns…

...but not your string?

If you're hoping to attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida this year, remember to leave your Super-Soakers, PVC pipe, and balls of yarn at home. If you want to bring your pistols or rifles however, that's okay!

Hoping to head off violent protesters during the Republican National Convention, Mayor Bob Buckhorn has proposed a litany of items that will be considered security threats during the week-long event.

The list runs from air pistols to water pistols and also includes items such as masks, plastic or metal pipe and string more than six inches long.
Conspicuously absent from the list of potential weapons: Firearms.

That’s because state law bans local governments from placing any restrictions on the carrying of guns in public spaces.

Like a scene out of Airplane! where the terrorists are allowed to pass the x-ray machine but the Nuns are stopped and frisked, parody has finally become reality.

Unless one of the protesters at the RNC is MacGyver, I believe firearms are a bigger threat than string more than six inches long, although I can see why some people who feel the need to compensate with guns would find the greater-than-six-inch string to be offensive.
