Where did they state that? My friend is wanting to bring a prop pistol but I'm not too sure what they would define as not being realistic (bright colors, crazy build, etc)
They did state anything yet, just going by what's happening in the world.

Hopefully SDCC will put out the prop/weapons policy for this year soon! I know a lot of people are trying to plan cosplays and I hate that someone would put a lot of time/money into something that can't be brought into the convention center. I doubt any realistic looking guns will be allowed after the events of this Con season but think a total prop ban would be a bit over the top.  ???

Even Phoenix Comic Con realized pretty quickly that a total prop ban was too much, and started allowing sonic screwdrivers, HP wands, etc. inside. But things like light sabers, Harley Quinn Mallets, etc. are definitely in a grey area.

They might not even address it at all and continue with their current weapons/props check-in policy.

For those bringing props and weapons, it might be a safe bet to dial it down a bit given recent incidents. I was thinking of being Nick Fury for a day (who has guns), so instead of the firearms, I'll just bring the Tesseract instead.

This is correct.  They may make no changes, they may make sensible changes, or they could go crazy and make us act like we are at an airport.  I would say hope for the best, plan for the worst.  Aka, find a costume that is sensible for the times we are living in, aka if you can do a costume that doesn't need realistic guns you are probably on the right path.  But if you want to be say Rick Grimes, maybe just leave the shotgun at home this year.

I want to cosplay as Robin this year, he goes have a staff which I want to make and walk around with. Does a simple plastic staff have to tagged as well?

Yes. Every weapon, no matter how light or non-functional, must be tagged.
