What are they afraid of?

The National Shooting Sports Foundation's Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT)Show just concluded in Las Vegas. Amongst the rules of the show: No personal firearms within the premises, and all display firearms had to have the firing pins removed or disabled.

Gosh, what are they afraid of? Don't they know that guns don't kill people, only people do? And that if everybody at the gunshow is armed that makes the gun show safer? At least, that's what they're always telling the rest of us. Hypocrisy, much?

  1. Those would be the folks to know what to do for safety but I'm betting the insurance company for the exhibition space set the rules and the Foundation folks couldn't afford anything looser.

  2. So, you're saying that they cared more about setting up in a specific exhibition space than about "defending their rights" (to carry everywhere and all the time)? Gosh darn it, no hypocrisy *there* either :).
