If I own a building or rent space to sell my stuff I may not want to pay Hundreds or Thousands of extra dollars for insurance so that some total unknown stranger can carry their gun for an hour or two.
The only Rights you have on PRIVATE PROPERTY are what the owner Allows
Deal with it.

Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.
Its just like TV, if you dont like the program turn the dang channel.
Don't like the rules dont go to the dang gun show!
BTW if they allowed cc I dang sure wouldnt go! every freakin nut and his gang banger cousin goes to those shows.

As mentioned, this has nothing to do with the show organizers. It is an insurance issue. There would never be a single gun show without the insurance, EVER. They have to do as their policy states.
But lets just say when I go all they do is ask. Not under oath right?
Amen to that! Add the entry fee to the gun you're buying. Here in N.VA, you'll save 10% or more at Virginia Arms, Silver Eagle Group, or nearly any other place. I go to look, have fun, maybe buy ammo and/or other supplies. Will never buy a gun at a show I can get locally for less!
Because it's an advertised event, wouldn't it then be considered a public gathering? To me it seems like it fits the definition which at least for the state of Georgia makes it off limits for CC anyway.
I've been to enough gun shows to see that most people don't practice muzzle discipline etc.
Had a show where a vendor bought a shotgun off a guy and put it out for sale on his table,my buddy was walking by looking and noticed sumpin shiny in the shell tube,he picked the gun up and shucked out 4 live 12 gauge shells,the seller bought crapped his pants,had someone else picked that gun up and racked the slide and pulled the trigger,I woulda been running out to buy stock in fruit of the loom.
We had another gun show where a vendor had a ND with the gun he was carrying,nobody was hit thank god but he was told to pack up and never come back.I surrender my 1911 at the door and let them zip tie it,but I got a knife and 2 reloads on me

I don't always feel comfortable around people handling weapons, but i trust them until i see them mishandling....now i don't trust any of y'all to shoot an apple off my head !!!!!
You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
I just came from a gun show here in El Paso Texas and youre authorized to CC even at the gun show. When you enter there is just a sign that states, "Carrying Concealed? Keep it concealed!"

I was at a gun show I was working with a dealer the next booth to me some how a round end in a gun then the gun went off, no one got hurt but a $3,000 knife had a bullet in the handle of it. He was escort to the office then he pack up.
