GOP Goes Full Moron: Bans Toy Guns From Convention But Real Guns Allowed (VIDEO)

The Republican National Convention is in Cleveland this year. Like you would expect, many things are banned from the “event zone” surrounding the convention, including Tennis balls, containers of bodily fluids, and toy guns.

Real guns, however, are not banned from the event zone. Because while we can’t trust Trumpers with their own pee, guns are totally cool.

The list of items that are disallowed is extensive, and includes the allowable size of wooden sticks, and clearly bans water guns, water cannons, and basically any item that even resembles a gun. It bans fireworks, glass containers, crowbars, brass knuckles, even large PVC pipes.

However, Republicans are perfectly fine with the insanity of allowing FIREARMS into the protected zone. Because open carry is legal in Ohio and we learned nothing from the difficulties faced by the Dallas PD when trying to sort the real shooter from the 20 yahoos carrying guns in camo gear.

Now This shared a video on this (news coverage at the end of the article):

Here is a complete list of prohibited items:

This list reflects the understanding that there is a clear and present danger of a riot and that certain items make damage to persons and property much easier. However, the item which could kill the most people the fastest is being allowed because life is not as important to them as the right to take it easily.
