On Thursday’s “CNN Newsroom,” host Brooke Baldwin took the time to read a sampling of some of the 72 items prohibited from the upcoming Republican National Convention.
When Baldwin finally got to the end of the list, she lamented, “One item noticeably not banned in the open carry state of Ohio — guns.”
Items on the banned list include air rifles, paint ball guns, blasting caps, switch blades. knives with a blade longer than two and a half inches, billy clubs, swords, hatchets, axes, sling shots, BB or pellet guns, metal knuckles, nun chucks, mace, pepper spray, shovels, fireworks, rockets, sound application equipment, drones, aerosol cans, umbrellas with metal tips, water guns, water cannons, rope, chains, cables, wire longer than six feet, glass bottles, ornaments, light bulbs, padlocks, gas masks, tents, sleeping bags, mattresses, stoves, coolers, ice chests, lasers, non-plastic containers, bottles, cans, hammers, crowbars. canned goods, and finally tennis balls.
It took so long for Baldwin to read the entire list, the list of items, Star Wars-scrolling on the screen had to be restarted.
