Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said this week that only law enforcement officers will be allowed to carry guns during the convention within a security perimeter, which has not yet been designated.
If someone tries to enter the convention grounds with a forgotten gun in a purse or pocket — as happens from time to time at airports around the country — the person will be turned away, Ogilvie said.
At airports, the Transportation Security Administration confiscates and destroys guns not properly secured and checked through its security system.
Ogilvie says that won’t happen at the RNC.
Sorry to all the gun nuts who think it is a good idea to bring your Glock to a political convention.
