I don't think the rule was made out of fear that someone start shooting. It's there because no matter what, some moron will feel compelled to take out his loaded carry piece to show someone. Then the fun starts.

It is kind of queer when you go to a gun show or a NRA rally no concealed weapons. The NRA rally had no guns to sell or see, it was a political rally. I don't know why some anti gunner hasn't took off with the fact the NRA doesn't trust their own.

With everyone handling guns, some jackass would forget which gun was in his had and start WWIII.

There was also a problem with anti-gun asshats bringing in ammunition and loading it in one of the guns on display hoping to cause an incident. But yes, it mostly has to do with liability issues. I for one carry mine into any gun show I go to. No matter what I wouldn't pull it out, let alone let anyone know I had it on me.

A couple of weekends ago there were several shows scattered around. There were three seperate incidences at gun shows where people were injured by guns going off.
Never heard much of this before but with all that is going on to have 3 in one weekend was bad for gun shows. Like I said before soewhere in this forum, shows have been banned for at least 25 years in my state. The only thing that I thought was out of control was the beans and hotdogs they served and the resulting event that followed. It was like tear gas.

Every gun show I have attended has always been in a government owned public a county fairgrounds, etc. It is a against the law in most places to cc in such a public building. That's what I have seen in Wisconsin.
