The Gun Shows of Yore

Back in the day…

I used to attend a relatively small gunshow at a local Catholic High School multi-purpose room.  No unloading, open carry allowed (this was before AZCCW licensing).  Just don’t touch it.  On second thought, I think we had to clear it and go in empty.  But we did O.C.  And no nylon zip ties.

Reportedly, there were a few accidental negligent discharges at recent gun shows nationwide.  I’m certain in part to the massive new, uneducated consumership generated by the current President, and the pending rights-restrictive legislation.

I suspect this uneducated/untrained ignorance accounts for at least some of the discharges.  But, then again, if the anti-gun folks are to be believed, if guns cause crime and accidents, the gun shows should have been a bloodbath.

They weren’t.

Of course, the ‘powers that be’ don’t care about the facts; just their agenda.

  1. 3 in one day just as things are ramping up in DC?… yeah ok.

    It’s awfully convenient.

  2. Many more people died in work related accidents in that same two day period than were injured at those gun shows. Perspective.
