The Danger of Gun Shows

Posted on the 25 June 2011 by Mikeb302000

via the Truth About Guns where I was interested to see this following comment by Old Slo Biker.
I used to attend the gun shows at that venue pretty regularly, and this is the third incident like this they have had there that I know of. One of the reasons this show nearly ceased to be was the venue’s insistence on high table rentals and admission prices to pay for increased insurance and security. With things like this happening, I see there reasoning.
So besides being the go-to place for terrorists and murderers to arm up, the chances of being shot by accident are too high to ignore. Sounds like a lotta fun.
