The local gun shows invite all types to see the displays.

The unsafe handling of firearms demonstrated by most people makes me cringe.

Here's the way I look at it, and you may disagree, and rightfully you should disagree, because in a perfect world we would all think, act and behave like responsible adults.

I've seen many people that should not have a carry permit. These are the irresponsible people, the yahoos, jackasses, and the "Militia Nutjobs" (Not downing all militia, but most of you know the type I'm talking about)

Do y'all know why more people die in car accidents than airplanes? Because there's more cars on the road than there are planes in the air.
By the same token, if you put that many armed people in a confined space, the idiots are bound to make their appearance, and yes, as Glockman mentioned, we shouldn't have to pay the consequences of these morons actions, however, it is an imperfect world we live in. I mentioned something about someone firing off live rounds at a gun show while I was in attendance, so here's the story.

I can't remember the name of the town, but it was near Moorehead City, north of Jacksonville NC. Just some random guy, who was out shopping for his first handgun, and he asked the vendor he was talking to how to operate it. This IDIOT vendor showed the man how to load and chamber a round with LIVE ammunition, and let the guy handle it.

Some of you may think you know where I'm going with this. It wasn't the random, non gun educated bumpkin who fired off the rounds, it was the VENDOR after the man handed the gun back, for some reason he pulled the trigger. He said he was so shocked by the gun going off that he flinched and pulled it again. 2 shots, in a crowded, confined area, by a man who should have been (and likely was on any other day of the week) knowledgeable in the safe handling of firearms, and a responsible person.

No injuries or deaths, thank God.

As was stated earlier about Florida, the State Policeman at the door wireties the gun safe and in you go. In Orlando, with the generally large crowds, I am okay with it.

There are too many people and too many opportunities for accidents. I am okay with it. I walk out and cut the tie with my pocket knife, and if I have bought some rounds, re-load. No one says anything about it, and the LEO community is well represented outside the buildings.

I agree with you 100%, it just makes no sense at all. I guess I'm not responsible to carry my gun in a place that sells guns and knives, right! Also what really makes me laugh is the sign on the door of my local gun shop. "No concealed weapons allowed". Are you kidding me or what!

What I understand from a Gunshow Administrator responding to this question is. The gunshow insurance policy requires them to have the no loaded weapons rule. They wouldn't get insurance if they didn't comply. The administrator said they wouldn't have that rule unless it was required/dictated by the insurance.

It's not a problem at the shows I attend here in Texas. The one requirement is that your gun be unloaded while you're in the show area. Usually a LEO will be at the door and ask if you have a firearm before you enter. If you do, he'll ask you to unload the gun, he will do a visual check to ensure the weapon is empty then pass you through.

At Knob Creek in West Point Ky they require your firearm be unloaded and a big orange zip tie is passed through the action so theres no doubt your weapon is empty.
