    Can anyone explain why those with valid carry permits are forbidden from carrying at a gunshow?

    I noticed this at the State Fair show a few weeks ago. Seems quite ridiculous.

    I thought you check in and then can carry unloaded........ I carry in there all the time without checking in anyway.

    When is the last time you saw one of those signs and decided you better disarm yourself before you cross?

    I expect it's a simple safety thing.....some folks aren't bright enough to leave the dang thing concealed, they pull it out to show it to someone.....yeah it's a dumb thing to do, but they still do it.

    Handling a loaded gun in a crowded room just isn't safe......"I'm the only one here professional enough to handle a Glock foty".
