As you probably already know, the GOP Convention is set to take place August 27-30 in Tampa, Florida at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, but what you probably didn’t know is that we might have had to sacrifice a little freedom to be able to attend.

That’s because the Mayor of Tampa requested Florida Governor Rick Scott to consider a gun ban during the convention.

Citing a heated election cycle and an uneasy politically charged atmosphere, Mayor Bob Buckhorn wrote Scott on Tuesday asking for an executive order that would temporarily override laws that allow people to carry concealed weapons.

In the letter Buckhorn argues that in the “potentially contentious environment surrounding the RNC, a firearm unnecessarily increases the threat of imminent harm and injury to the residents and visitors of the city.”

Governer Scott was quick to deny Buckhorn’s request basically stating that such a ban would be a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment: “An absolute ban on possession in entire neighborhoods and regions would surely violate the Second Amendment.”
