Let’s have a look at the ’58th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony’ website.
What items are not allowed / prohibited from the inauguration ceremonies and events?
For your safety and the safety of others, the following items are prohibited from all official inauguration events.
- 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
Hmm, that’s interesting. It’s not surprising that guns are banned at the inauguration. It’s actually a good thing.
It’s for that reason it seems ironic for his inauguration to ban guns. Then again, some of his own hotels ban guns, even if someone has a permit. He’s never been known for consistency.
