Donald Trump’s list of things you can’t bring to his inauguration is about to seriously tick off the NRA.
The president-elect may have cheerfully pandered to the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the campaign trail, but he’s no fool. His newfound love for the National Rifle Association and our so-called Second Amendment Rights isn’t strong enough for him to risk his own life in their defense.
The Daily Dot got hold of a list of items that will be banned at Donald Trump’s not-so-presidential inauguration on Jan. 20. This list of forbidden things includes firearms, ammunition, and weapons of any kind.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America got hold of the list and posted it on Twitter.

Here’s the complete list of banned items:
- Animals other than service/guide animals
- Backpacks and bags exceeding size restrictions (18” by 13” by 7”)
- Drones and other unmanned aircraft systems
- Glass, thermal, or metal containers
- Laser pointers
- Mace/Pepper spray
- Selfie sticks
- Signs exceeding the size restrictions (20” x 3” x 1/4”)
- Supports for signs and placards
- Toy guns
- Weapons of any kind
- Any other items determined to be potential safety hazards.
That’s right. The man who once vowed to require schools to allow guns on their grounds, has no intention of meeting with the same fate as mass shooting victims across our nation.
‘I’m going to get rid of gun-free zones on military bases and I’m also going to do it in schools.’
This flaming hypocrite ardently professed his devotion to his supporters back in February.
‘We love the Second Amendment, folks. Nobody loves it more than us, so just remember that.’
But now Donald Trump has shown himself entirely unwilling to pay the price of freedom…Which, in America, means accepting the risk of getting shot dead at any time.
Yet, CNN points out that Donald Trump wasn’t always so pro-NRA and Second Amendment.
‘In 2012, Trump tweeted that President Barack Obama had “spoken for me and every American” in his remarks at a vigil for the Newtown school shooting victims. Now, Trump routinely accuses Clinton and Obama of plotting to undermine the Constitution.’
President Obama spoke for me and every American in his remarks in #Newtown Connecticut.

Then, in his 2000 book “The America We Deserve,” Donald Trump sounded similarly wishy-washy on guns.
‘I generally oppose gun control. But I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today’s internet technology we should be able to tell within 72 hours if a potential gun owner has a record.’
Obviously, Donald Trump is a craven opportunist willing to say or do anything — anything — to get elected. At least anything that won’t put him at risk of getting shot.
