Quote:Florida governor rejects gun ban for Republican convention
Tallahassee, Florida (Reuters) - Florida Governor Rick Scott has shot down a request by Tampa's mayor to allow local authorities to ban guns from the city's downtown during the Republican National Convention in August.
Citing Second Amendment protections in the U.S. Constitution, Scott told Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn that conventions and guns have co-existed since the nation's birth and would continue to do so during the four-day event beginning August 27.
It's about time these fellers start
upholding the law of the land.
They all swear to uphold the
constitution then commence to do
everything they can to trample on
it. bravo Governor Scott.
