    Ag Department adopts new rules for gun shows after shooting

    Raleigh, N.C. — A shooting at a gun show at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds last month has prompted the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to adopt new regulations for such shows, officials said Tuesday.

    Investigators said Gary Lynn Wilson, 36, of Wilmington, brought a 12-gauge shotgun to sell at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show on Jan. 19, but the weapon went off when Wilson removed it from its case at a security checkpoint.

    Three people who were hit by shotgun pellets were treated and released from a local hospital the same day.

    No charges were filed against Wilson in the case.

    Beginning with the Capital City Gun Show at the State Fairgrounds this weekend, people who bring firearms to sell at gun shows at the fairgrounds or the Western N.C. Agricultural Center in Fletcher will have to park in a designated area and use a separate entrance.
    Under the new rules, firearms cannot be in cases. Also, the weapon’s action must be open, and all magazines, bullets or shells removed when show visitors leave their vehicles.

    This is a workable solution rather than ban all private sales like they did after last months ND.

    I plan on going,but not to sell.These regs do not upset me,and actually might make me a bit more relaxed.
    It is pardonable to be defeated but never surprised.

    They sound very reasonable to me, and probably for the best.

    I read this article this morning. Seems reasonable to me as well. A simple fix. Of course folks will realize that if you're selling you stand in a shorter line and gain entrance when others can't. There'll be a lot of folks carrying beat up field guns with no intention of selling them. Uh oh.....a loophole.

    Actual common sense. In short supply these days... Good job.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    They should start banning weapons that "just go off." They are dangerous and scary.

    Didn't the guy at the table touch that one off without clearing the weapon?
