1. Aw. let them have their guns. It can't hurt.

Maybe a few of them will take it upon themselves to eliminate each other from the wingnut population.

3. Disguise your squirt gun as a real one! Then you can smuggle it in and squirt water on Republicans.

6. Where's the NRA in all of this?

Why isn't that beacon of freedom defending the God GIVEN right to keep and bear arms on a crowded, noisy convention floor of perpetually apoplectic anger addicts?

Won't anyone think of the children who could miss out of being orphaned?
