    Allow me to translate from Gibberish:

    I drove past the local convention center yesterday - there was a gun show this weekend.

    It looked crazy - cars parked everywhere - even the grass over flow parking lots looked full.

    This location is also used for the rodeo / carnival - so there is a parking area that is way over sized VS the building.

    I have been to this show when there was not even 1/2 this many cars and it was so crowded you could barely walk through the isles.

    It was around 10:00 AM - show starts at 9:00 there was a traffic jam of cars trying to leave the show. Never seen anything like this - my guess is cars could not find a place to park so they had to leave.

    I can't imagine needing a gun so much that I would - wait 30 minutes to find a place to park - stand in line for 20 minutes to get a ticket - fight through a mass humans to maybe locate a gun - wait 2 hours for the paperwork - and pay $100+ more for the gun then it would have cost 2 weeks ago.

    We have one in Birmingham I will be going to on Jan. 5th. Normally the line will be 100 yards long 15 mins before the doors open with no panic buying going on. I can't even fathom what it will be like on the 5th.

    We have a big gun show coming up next week here in Vegas. I just need ammo for the gun I already have. I saw this months ago and bought my Colt M4 and AK47 long before the panic.

    I hope they dont increase the entry fee. That would really piss me off.
