    Bit unclear. I think yes, they will be allowed??? No confirmation on this as far as I know.

    Legal carry OK.

    Yes

    U can both open carry in Arizona, and at the convention, as well as CC at the show as long as you have a valid CCW of course.

    I'll bet there are open bars there. Carry would be a no-no.

    That's what I was thinking. With all the banquets going on there will probably be alchohol served on the premise or at least the convention center has a license to sell it, therefore would be a no CC area due to Arizona law.

    According to 138th NRA ANNUAL MEETINGS & EXH legal carry is OK there. There is probably a separate bar area.

    Thanks, that was not up on their site when I looked at it a few weeks back. We're going to all the off limit events so I guess it stays in the car for them.

    Local paper says it's ok. The few areas that have alcohol, will also have storage available for your weapons.

    Just read in the Phoenix Paper today 5-5-09. The NRA is asking to suspended the liquor permit at the Phoenix Convention Center accept of 3 rooms. Those 3 rooms will allow alcohol to be served, where the rest of the venue will not have booze. Those 3 rooms is where the banquets will be located and will have a gun check in. Just FYI for you guys
