What It’s Like to Carry a Gun
Around the DNC

I carried a gun around the Democratic National Convention, and it was a real pain.

Last week, for the Republican National Convention, the Washington Free Beacon staff stayed in a wonderful modern home in the Tremont section of Cleveland. With nine 20- and 30-something reporters packed into a three-bedroom house, the vibe quickly spiraled toward frat house. There was a heated argument over the proper response to receiving a steak that’s not cooked to your liking—the main takeaway being not to throw away said steak right in front of the man who cooked it for you. One Free Beaconer burned himself while removing a tray of baked potatoes from the oven with his bare hands.
