    I was walking around with the assumption that the Secret Service wouldn't give a damn who said what and would institute checks galore. That exact interpretation you mention is starting to "ring a bell" for me now that you mention it. Probably saw that in the National Geographic documentary about the Secret Service some years back.

    There was that, but for clarification sake, the man you mention was more influenced by nutto NWO-films put up on Youtube than the conservative movement.

    Read a bit more and you will find that personal firearms are only allowed outside of the arena where the Republican convention takes place. Secret Service will control all entrances and exits to the arena, so those Repub delegates who like to carry their own weapons will have to drop them at the door.

    Outside the convention, Tampa has set up 'protest areas' which will require you to drop the stick which is attached to your protest sign, that plastic water pistol will have to go also, along with any other items that might be used to "harm another person". However, you will be allowed to carry your personal firearm if you have the appropriate concealed-carry permit. There are questions remaining as to whether open carry by persons holding a CCW permit will be allowed in the neighbourhood of the convention. There are questions remaining as to whether Tampa and Florida law enforcement will recognise CCW permits issued in other states during the time of the convention

    At least some law professors are saying that it would be theoretically possible for the Secret Service to claim a larger area around the convention centre as federally controlled during the time of the convention but that it is unlikely - not enough resources.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
