No sense in starting yet another DeSantis thread, but if I started it, it would be called "DeSantis is a big Fn hypocrite".

Ron DeSantis’ campaign wanted to ban guns from event — but didn’t want to get blamed: report | Salon.com
According to the Post
, DeSantis' campaign sought to prohibit guns from the governor's reelection victory party at the Tampa Convention Center, a city-run venue, last November 8, while suggesting city officials claim responsibility for the ban.
obtained an October 8 email from Chase Finch, the convention center's safety and security manager, saying that "DeSantis/his campaign will not tell their attendees they are not permitted to carry because of the political optics."
Finch explained that the request for the city to shoulder blame was due to "Republicans largely being in support of 2A," a reference to the Second Amendment."
"Basically it sounds like they want us to say it's our policy to disallow firearms within the event space if anyone asks," he added, drawing a response from city administrator Nicole Travis stressing that "we are not
saying anything about concealed carry."
