It is the policy of ConJosé that no real or realistic edged or projectile weapons may be carried anywhere within the convention except during the Masquerade or specially approved events. The use of a weapon during the Masquerade or during a programming event must be approved by the Masquerade Director or the Programming Division Manager respectively. No weapon of any kind may be drawn or wielded in any area of the hotel or convention space.
ConJosé defines a weapon as any object designed to cause damage, or any replica of such an object, or any object that the Committee determines to pose a risk to the safety of others or to personal or hotel or convention center property. The Committee reserves the right to alter or amend this definition without notice and the right to impound weapons for the duration of ConJosé. Failure to put a weapon away in your hotel room or car (or check it with Convention Operations until you leave the convention for the day, if not staying at the hotel) is grounds for immediate revocation of membership without refund and expulsion from the convention.
Dealers who sell weapons must securely wrap each item at the point of sale and provide each customer with a printed copy of these rules.
We at ConJosé know that most people who would like to carry weapons are sensible and careful individuals. However, we must keep in mind liability, legal issues and our relationship with the hotels and the convention center. The safety of you, the members, must outweigh any other consideration and it is with this in mind that these policies have been formed.
