You would think the one place a licensed concealed carry gun owner would be welcome with open arms is at a gun show. After all, the kinds of folks who attend gun shows are obviously gun owners and gun enthusiasts. Attending gun shows is one of my favorite weekend activities because I love guns, ammunition, and gun accessories.
This weekend, I attended a gun show in Springdale Arkansas, my first in that state. I was shocked when I approached the door of the building, to see signs plastered all over the doors. The signs read, “No loaded guns past this point”, “No loaded clips or loose ammo allowed”, and “No loaded concealed carry allowed”.
In other words, I can walk in a place thats business is all about promoting guns for self defense, yet I am expected to be defenseless while I am there. Also… I can purchase guns, ammo, and magazines inside the show and walk around with them, but can’t walk around with the same items if I had them in my possession before the show?
