Gun Control Priorities

Posted: April 14, 2012 in Current Events, Media Gleanings

According to the latest Macleans magazine, Tampa, Fla. is gearing up for the summer Republican convention by banning weapons from the downtown area.  Things like slingshots, paintball guns and switchblades have made a prohibited list and will not be allowed.

However, state law prevents any city from regulating the possession of actual guns, and so they cannot be put on the prohibited list.  So, you will be detained for carrying a sling shot, but not a revolver.
