Florida Gov. Rick Scott On Tampa’s Republican Convention: Needs More Guns

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Scary monstersRound about a month ago, your Wonkette informed you of the stupid state law/clusterfuck that precluded the city of Tampa from restricting guns around the site of the Republican National Convention. “Stupid idiot,” snitted some jive-ass commenters, “why do you make a big deal out of this obviously the Secret Service won’t let any guns in the convention hall and obviously nobody ever leaves the convention hall ever not even once gah shut up by the way I am a very wet pussyfart.” All of which was obviously true. But so now the ‘lected officials of the city of Tampa are still trying to do something about this, because they do not want to go down in history as the Southern city where buncha rednecks Stood Their Ground against some peaceful hippies and possibly also too James Brady, and they wrote to Gov. Rick Scott asking him like, please suspend the state law that ensures no municipality infringes on Floridians’ right to pack hate haha whoops heat, at least, like, in the protest zones? Nah mang, said Rick Scott. NRA! ALEC! FREEEEEEEEDOM!

“Like you, I share the concern that ‘violent anti-government protests or other civil unrest’ can pose ‘dangers’ and the ‘threat of substantial injury or harm to Florida residents and visitors to the State.’ But it is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law,” he added.

Is it, Rick Scott? Is it “unclear”?

Just thinkin’ out loud here: maybe if someone were going to shoot someone, like intended to shoot someone important and Republican when that person left the convention hall, cops might see the assassin’s weapon and say, like, “oh sorry you are not allowed to have that weapon here” and then the assassin would have to put the weapon away and would not be able to murder the important Republican. Or maybe — and again, just spitballin’! — maybe some hippies would totally enrage some teatards so bad during their protesting of each other, or a Union Thug would look at a teatard so wrong and cross-eyed that the teatard might feel threatened, and the teatard might take out the gun he was legally allowed to have and might shoot the hippie or the Union Thug until it was dead.

But probably not, right? Cause law-abidin’. We mean, what’s the worst that could happen? [RawStory]

We can only hope.

Pew! Pew Pew!

Jus_Wonderin May 2, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Gunfight at the IOKIYAR Corral. And, I am OK with that.

This is good news for the magic underwear manufacturers.

I've been to Tampa. They ought to hand you a rental gun at the airport.

Baconzgood May 2, 2012 at 2:54 pm

What could possibly go wrong?

sullivanst May 2, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Nobody could predict that more guns might mean more shooting.

ALIVE! May 2, 2012 at 3:54 pm

No fighting in the War Room!

JustPixelz May 2, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Here's one possibility: The Tea Party wing of the Repubicans gets into a confrontation with the Neo-Cons. Tempers flare. A balloon pops and there is a fusillade of gunfire from all corners of the room. When it's over, there is no one left standing their ground.

OH WAIT! You said "go wrong". Forget what I just said.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 2, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Wasn't that W's campaign slogan?

Stevola May 3, 2012 at 12:35 am

It was "What, me worry?"

mrpuma2u May 2, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I am hoping for as much as is possible to go wrong. That would be change I could believe in.

Negropolis May 2, 2012 at 10:56 pm

I see a lot of "no one could have imagined…"s coming out of this.

weejee May 2, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Any delegate who's not packin' should be shot.

actor212 May 2, 2012 at 2:56 pm

"Ye ain't got no gun? That's a shootin'!"

starfanglednut May 2, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Ye didn't bring no bullets? That's a shootin'. No holster? Yep. That's a shootin'.

Not_So_Much May 2, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Right? I thought that was the Loyalty Oath.

sullivanst May 2, 2012 at 3:19 pm

The NRA's lead mass test.

elviouslyqueer May 2, 2012 at 2:55 pm

This is going to end well.

Nostrildamus May 2, 2012 at 3:26 pm

No kidding. I might even tune in to watch.

Negropolis May 2, 2012 at 10:57 pm

But, only if it stays within the convention center. We wouldn't want any of our own getting hurt, after all.

Yeah, I said it.

Baconzgood May 2, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Baconz still thinks he looks like a poor man's Ed Harris

actor212 May 2, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Poor Ed Harris

MRjonz May 3, 2012 at 3:44 pm

In the photo Wonkette uses, he seriously looks like the Vampire Boy for the late, lamented Weekly World News shopping rack rag.

UnholyMoses May 2, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Dude looks like the love child of Max Headroom and the lead singer from Midnight Oil.

Isn't it wonderful to know that the GOP has moved on from Ayn Rand to Yosemite Sam as their philosophical center?

From one cartoon character to another.

Well, at least we know he's not an anti-Semite…

Biel_ze_Bubba May 2, 2012 at 3:26 pm

That's Prosemite Sam you're thinking of.

That's unfair, at least Yosemite Sam is occasionally likable, and his constant schemes to get Bugs Bunny are at least somewhat plausible, unlike Objectivism.

Everybody deserves a chance to be Yosemite Sam at least once! Don't bring just one gun, bring 'em all!!! Pew! Pew Pew Pew! Pew!!

CommieLibunatic May 2, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Rule No.01 of Republican Conventions: Bring a gun.
Rule No.02: Bring two guns.
Rule No.03: Bring all your friends who have guns.

…oh wait, I was reading from the USMC Gunfighting Handbook.

Texan_Bulldog May 2, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Florida, Florida, Florida–are there any sane people left in that state? I'd be more scared of a bunch of fired-up RW gun-tards being armed than a bunch of stoned, emo hippies.

Baconzgood May 2, 2012 at 2:57 pm

'Cause no one does anything crazy with their legally concealed weapon in Flor…oh that's right.

I still don't understand how Florida is allowed to elect the dude that shot Gabby Giffords as Governor.

sullivanst May 2, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Because he defrauded Medicare out of several hundred million dollars, and that makes it alright.

mayor_quimby May 3, 2012 at 12:29 am

Florida's constitution is weird, but the gist of it is, the violent, thieving, crooked cream is allowed to rise to the top. Simple and elegant, isn't it?

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 2, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I haz a confused. Am I supposed to be against people getting shot at the republican national convention?

Of course. By wearing a bullet-proof vest you may abridge someone else's second amendment rights.

Oh, my! What to pack? The all-seeing eye pendant, a Kabbalah hamsa, a blue stone, a corno charm, a mojo hand, a rabbit's foot, a horseshoe, a dead scorpion, a pentagram, a Celtic knot, a Sanskrit om symbol, Thor's hammer … and for heaven's sake don't forget the sage smudging ceremony for cleansing when you get home.

Wile E. Quixote May 3, 2012 at 2:40 am

Hey beautiful, why don't you and Jim come to Seattle? By the end of August summer will have started here and it will be beautiful, about 20 degrees cooler than Tampa and with fewer heavily armed morons. Just fake the liveblog with a green screen and some gunshot sound effects, it's what Wolf Blitzer does at CNN. That old queen hasn't left his bunker in Teaneck, New Jersey since 1993.

DaRooster May 2, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Man, if only we could get rid of ALL LAWS… I could be law abiding too.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 2, 2012 at 2:58 pm

A bunch of drunk, well armed Republicans.

I was going with Gingrich, but a Paul Putsch would be interesting.

I suspect, in the mind of Lex Luthor, some gun nut wingnuts shooting peaceful hippie protestors is a positive outcome.

SoBeach May 2, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Should a live, televised shoot-out erupt we can look forward to the gun-fetishists telling us that the only thing that would have prevented the bloodbath would be if more law abiding citizens were packing.

Wish that was snark.

BerkeleyBear May 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I'm waiting for the calls to carry frag grenades and landmine any property you are near to start. Because only when we all live in abject terror that any step may be our last will we be truly free.

WunkRocker May 2, 2012 at 3:00 pm

If we could only convince SOME of the Teatards to pretend to be Hippies, you know, infiltrate. There'd be deadly GOP retard hi-jinx ensuing. Everyone taking preemptive strikes and standing their grounds. When the smoke cleared there's be more holes than something with a lot of holes in it.

5x5hrEnergeezIn5mins + ConcealedWeaponz iz not good mix.

And guns always help, also.

Cripes, it looks like lex luthar-scott's eyes are going to pop right out and start bouncing about on the table. This frightens me.

Groupshrug May 2, 2012 at 3:11 pm

The reasoning behind allowing guns at the convention is to protect citizens (GOP/Conservative/Republican convention goers) from protesters (Liberals)…

News flash: Liberals don't carry guns around. Liberals by definition do not have the mindset of keeping a gun on them at all times, just in case they need to shoot someone.

So really the situation is that the Convention goers will be taking guns in the hopes of shooting a Liberal.

actor212 May 2, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Are you kidding? That's an activity on the "spouse's agenda," right after a Rays game and just ahead of "Musical Beds"

We mean, what’s the worst that could happen?

I'll bite: A young black man could show up to the convention wearing a hoodie.

disarming law-abiding citizens

Is it even possible to violate a Florida gun law?

(Other than being a pediatrician, obvs.)

Only if you try to regulate them.

Rush Limbaugh and Fox News would shit a brick.

Not that they'll believe it. Plus, anyone with a camera of any kind needs to have it out and displayed at all times in a non-threatening manner – because any movement to a pocket to fish it out could be fatal.

randcoolcatdaddy May 2, 2012 at 3:28 pm

The Republican convention is going to give some poor cops and Secret Service agents a citrus grove full of ulcers. I don't envy them one bit for trying to keep that mess of hate, bile, and firearms from harming themselves or innocent bystanders.

Rebecca "… by the way I am a very wet pussyfart.” Schoenkopf…Mmmmmmmmm. Nom,nom,nom……What? Oh, right. Uh, well, the problem is; Florida is like its sister state, Georgia: they check you for guns at the border and if you don't have one, they issue you one. RIMSHOT!

nikkiceausescu May 2, 2012 at 3:52 pm

I literally did not understand the first paragraph of this piece. I am dumber for reading it.

anniegetyerfun May 2, 2012 at 3:59 pm

The thing that strikes me the most about Scott's statement is that it comes from a place in which the citizenry is armed by default. I suppose that's normal in America, but it still throws me for a loop sometimes.

crybabyboehner May 2, 2012 at 4:21 pm

So shooting hippies is bad?
I'm cornfused.

chicken_thief May 2, 2012 at 4:23 pm

I fucking LOVE this – guns for all says Scott!!!

Now, what good Republican is going to complain about potential danger? Mitt? Sant rum or Newt? They CAN'T without looking like a pussy. Dittos for all the delegates. Bammerz let the protesters carry at his '08 rallies. They have now painted themselves into a corner from which there is no escape.

Suck it up, teabagger bitches. You want guns, you got guns.

unclejeems May 2, 2012 at 4:23 pm

All this so that corporations that manufacture and sell guns can make a few bucks. America–what a country.

I for one welcome our new well-armed overlords.

elburritodeluxe May 2, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Am I alone in wanting to bring a bunch of armed Muslims and Black Panthers to the Republicans big party? Lets all play.

gurukalehuru May 2, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Give them guns! Give them rope!

fitley May 2, 2012 at 4:27 pm

It says in the Constitution that Rick has the right to be ignorant and wrong too. Being a convicted felon I think he has a better insight into felon's minds, than say Joe Lawabidingcitizen. Save your paranoia for Fox News, they'll tell you what to fear.

owhatever May 2, 2012 at 5:15 pm

The Secret Service agents have better things to do, like competing with the GOP delegates for the imported hookers and making restaurant reservations in Ybor City.

Instead of the national anthem, the convention will open with Pat Benetar's "Hit me with your best shot! Fire away!"

OneYieldRegular May 2, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Go balloons.

Gainsbourg69 May 2, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Scott fucked up big time yesterday. The Miami Cubans had him sign a bill which would've blocked companies doing buisness with Cuba from doing business in Florida. But three hours later, at the behest of his boys at the Florida chamber of commerce, he signed a letter which made the law unenforceable. Now the Cubans down here are pissed and Rick Scott will be a one term governor. Hooray!!!!

horsedreamer_1 May 3, 2012 at 7:46 am

Just wait. After Castro dies, Cuba will officially become Florida's UP.

Negropolis May 3, 2012 at 8:24 am

The speed at which McDonalds and Starbucks will invade and inundate the island will be nothing short of astounding. Seriously, when Cuba opens up, America is going to blow the doors off.

Bay of Pigs, indeed.

Promises promises

NYNYNYjr May 2, 2012 at 8:49 pm

I hope everyone at the convention chooses some ground, proudly stands on it and refuses to give it, to anyone, candidate or fellow crazy person. I also hope there's booze in there.

Negropolis May 2, 2012 at 10:53 pm

But it is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law,” he added.

Because "law-abiding citizens" with guns never commit crimes, right? I get so tired of this bullshit talking point as if all crime is committed with unregistered guns. This gun ideology is a cult. Sorry. The belief that any problems caused by guns can be solved with the introduction of additional guns is a mental illness.

Ah, yes, the Republian National Convention in Tampa, otherwise known as "Night of the Long Guns".

You know things are fucked up when you're headed to a convention in Florida, in August … and they expect you to pack your own heat.

I think we should encourage the Teabaggers to bring all of the guns they want to Tampa and to drink as much as they want while they're down there. I also think we should encourage the OWS folks to stay home that week, or to protest in their home cities and give Tampa a wide berth. I'd love to see Tampa 2012 turn into Chicago 1968, except with bullets, lots and lots of bullets.

Lessee here…
the kenyan usurper sends in his OWS/NBP acolytes to disrupt a perfectly lawabiding, genial gop hate fest in Tampa. When the smoke clears, only one option is available: cancel the elections!!1! Martial law!!1! Reeducation camps!!1!
They are on to us…damn.
