protesters expected at Dem & Repub national conventions


"Tampa’s City Council wants Governor Rick Scott to pass an executive order banning concealed carry rights to coincide with protests at the Republican National Convention later this year.

“The thousands of protesters expected at the Democratic and Republican national conventions can come armed with a lot more than signs and slogans: State law in Florida and North Carolina allows concealed weapons, including guns,” reports the Sacramento Bee.

“The Tampa City Council wants Scott to issue an executive order, preventing people with concealed weapons permits from carrying guns.”

The executive order is required because according to Florida law, local officials are prohibited from pre-empting state gun statutes. "


Is Charlotte doing the SAME?

Protestors are being sent to a space well away from view of the convention goers OR any press.

we will need MANY cameras there filming the protests that are to be kept well away from the press

Perhaps some one who has contact at RT and MOXNEWS can get them to cover the protestors as well as the convention ? ?
