Comment: Closed during session, open otherwise:

(See in situ)

Closed during session, open otherwise:

Though Garrison Channel will close to recreational boaters during the week of the convention, Seddon Channel, which backs the Tampa Convention Center, will be closed to traffic only while the convention is in session, mainly the afternoons and nights of Aug. 27-30. Otherwise, it will be open to boat traffic.

Reading that article and watching that video really looks like the government is mainly trying to intimidate and scare boaters away, even at times when channels are not closed. What does it say when the government has to protect it's 'political' conventions with machine guns?
