    Thumbs up Firearms May Be Legally Carried At The 2011 NRA Convention In Pittsburgh.

    After the fiasco of not being able to carry at the 2010 Convention in Charlotte due to policies of the convention centre, I decided to launch a pre-emptive strike.

    I just received an email from Debbie Smucker, the director of sales and marketing at the David L. Lawrence convention centre. It is short and sweet and I have cut and pasted my question and her reply for your reading enjoyment.

    "We are contemplating attending the 2011 NRA annual meeting and spending a week in your fair city.

    Will those of us that can legally carry a concealed firearm be able attend this event?

    The reason I ask is that there was a great deal of controversy at the 2010 convention in Charlotte when attendees were told they could not carry in the Time Warner Center. A high number of potential attendees canceled as a result.

    I look forward to your reply."

    "Yes, you are allowed. Enjoy Pittsburgh!

    Debbie Smucker
    Director of Sales & Marketing, David L. Lawrence Convention Center"

    Gentlemen and Ladies, we are good to go!

    "Yes you are allowed."

    Allowed to attend? Allowed to carry while attending? You (if your quote above is exactly what you asked) did not ask if you could carry at the event..

    She answered that you could attend, said nothing about carry.

    So, you are good to go... but are you good to go, packin?
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    With the exception of some areas, carrying was allowed at the show in Louisville three years ago. You had to disarm to go in and listen to speakers tell you how they weren't going to let the government disarm you.

    Agreed, that is a vague response, to a poorly worded question (sorry).

    I'd write back and get specific confirmation that attendees that are legally allowed to carry a concealed firearm in their city, would be allowed to carry inside their building while attending this event.

    Call the Allegheny County Sportsmen League.

    From the web.

    PGH. David L. Lawrence Convention Center
    The convention center, a government owned and operated facility, adheres to all of Pennsylvania's firearm laws. This means that you can carry on the property. This is a change from the 2004 convention where the property was - illegally, according to state law - a "gun-free" zone.
    The Allegheny County Sportsmen League was instrumental in bringing the convention center back in line with the state's laws.

    PA, doesn't have very many restricted area's, other than the obvious. Secure areas of airports, court house, any federal building, school property (K-12) are the main ones. No signs on private property, you can carry. You must leave if asked by the property owner if they discover you're carrying.
