UPDATED: Shooting at Fort Lauderdale airport in yet another gun-free zone, 44 states allow concealed carry at airports

Concealed Carry

Permitted Concealed Handguns will be allowed at Republican National Convention within the 8-square-kilometer “event zone”

From the Voice of America:

Thanks to Ohio state laws, anyone within the 8-square-kilometer “event zone” in downtown Cleveland will be able to openly carry legally owned firearms. With a valid permit, they can even carry a concealed weapon.

And city officials cannot change that.

“It’s the state law, and we have to follow the law, so yeah,” Dan Williams, a spokesman for the Cleveland mayor’s office, told VOA when asked whether protesters would be able to carry guns in the event zone.
