So maybe this is a stupid question but what are the rules about carrying at the gun show (open or otherwise)?
As I am one of the forum members who sells at these show safety is important however, I believe during last Novembers show, a police officer entered with a bag and did not declare any weapons with the bag. When he opened his bag and grabbed for something he shot his gun off. You could have heard a pin drop! As I understand it he was immediately escorted off site because of his reckless behavior.apollosmith said:This has been discussed before. In short, they have a no guns policy, but like every other public place, it holds no legal grounds so you can carry however you choose. But I think most people respect the policy because mixing loaded guns and guns for show, etc. increases the likelihood of an accident. Pretty much every gun show lately has had at least one negligent discharge.
Don't blame the individual vendors for the show's rules. Spend as much time and money as you want. What you don't want to do is pay admission (no real way around that) or use the ATM machines (I heard that they are brought in by Crossroads of the West). Definitely shop around and enjoy yourself... oh, and take me with youjimtheguern said:I'll respect their rules but I won't spend anymore time (or money) than I have too.
I carry fully loaded and concealed at gun shows. I have no legal obligation to unload, and since it's concealed what they don't know doesn't hurt them.mqondo said:The only signs that I have ever seen at the gun show here in Utah that restricts guns is one that says "No loaded firearms past this point." I have never seen a sign that says you can't carry guns. I acknowledge this sign and just carry with a full mag and nothing in the chamber.
