    "In the politically-charged and likely protest-filled streets of Tampa, Fla., during the Republican National Convention in August, water guns will be strictly prohibited. Concealed handguns, on the other hand, will be perfectly legal...

    ...concealed carry license-holders will be able to carry their weapons in the streets surrounding the convention.

    They will not, however, be able to have "super soaker" water guns, sticks, poles, portable shields or glass bottles..."

    Makes sense to me.

    How times have we heard about people with fake guns, getting shot and killed because it was unknown they were fake.???

    Having a water gun might make people want to use them because they are not lethal, thus developing a habit of pulling the trigger without thinking which could lead to dire consequences later.

    I also hear they are going to ban Liberals

    Again this shows the superior intellect of the Right over the mentally ill Left.

    Folks I live in Florida and to get a carry permit you have to prove yourself competent to get a permit.

    The most safe person in the world is a permited carrier with a concealed self defense piece. They were given the permit because they proved they are sain, responsible and overall good people.

    Just knowing that they are among the crownd will go a long way at keeping the crazies at bay.

    On a different scale, of course, the safest nation on earth has the most tactical equipment availbale to use at it's discretion at any time.

    Same goes for Concealed carry, just on a much smaller scale.

    It was hot and windy today. Temp. in the mid 90's, and the wind was 20 to 30 MPH. Got about 50 head of calves branded today. Maybe, Monday, chance for rain for next week, thru Thursday. Lord knows we need it. Regards, Charlie
