    Strange signs @ GB gun show

    Saw this sign at the Green Bay Bob and Rocco gun show. I was going to see if I find a new home for a .22 pistol of mine and check if I could find any deals, but then this sign made wonder if I was going to be able to even bring it in. So, to be on the safe side...... I didn't bother going in and waste 5 bucks. I know they the right to say "no guns" and stuff, but really.... a sign like this at a GUN show?

    Wisconsin democrats are a tough bunch, and you know what they say-- "when the going gets tough...."

    A "No Guns" sign protects me as much as a speed limit sign keeps people from speeding.

    That is a strange sign for a gun show.

    They must be afraid of the nefarious gunch'oe loophoe. Why not add 'em to the boycott, it seems conventional wisdom that that will bring Bob & Rocco around. <Darth Vader wheeze>Use the force, Puke, use the force! </Darth Vader wheeze>

    Another good reason I didn't go there today. They can get bent.

    Been to shows where you demonstrate the firearm is not loaded. Not allowing anything limits looking for accessories or a trade-in.

    Does not make sense to pick a location that bars firearms.

    How is anyone going to be able to sell firearms at a gun show?

    Well. you could pay to rent a table.... Or stand outside hawking your deal like the Brady Bunch's worst nightmare. I wonder if the paying gun dealers complained that we were taking business away from them.... I suppose they'll also complain when we stay away! Ha-ha!

    Okay, how does that make any sense? Once you buy a gun and take possession of it aren't you then violating their policy? I mean, I REALLY don't get it?!?

    Pat Down search, really!!! Why would anyone go on their property. I don't fly just to stay away from TSA searches. Personally, if they attempted to pat me down, I'd tell them no, politely. I'd then be willing to have the Police called and go down to the station. I once walked out of a store and a door alarm went off. A clerk asked to see my bag and I refused and asked for a Police officer. I had a tag from another store that hadn't been removed and the receipt. The store I was stopped in didn't even apologise, but the first store gave me a $50 gift certificate.

    Anyone go to that GB show that can comment on the prices? It's been a while since I've heard of any gun shows with prices worth bothering going for.

    I haven't gone to one for a few years, but the prices were expectedly high. I did buy some ammo cans though.

    The last show I attended at the Patriot Center in Rothschild WI was a joke as far as prices go. Given the signage and the show organizers tendency to patronize the anti-gun venues, I've decided never to attend again.

    Why is it that Bob Pucci and his minions are the only ones in the state that run gunshows? Aside from small local deals of course.

    How stupid. (Unpatriotic, insulting...)
    It's also unenforceable, since they can't prohibit firearms kept in cars.
    Besides, if the gun show got a waiver for the dealers, they sureasell can extend the waiver to the customers.

    Won't go the B&R shows anyway, after one of their employees sexually harassed someone I know & she never got an apology.

    Optional signage

    A constitution barred sign, something like this:

    This may be the universal signage for the post modern America.

    'Cause if I'm going to be away from it (oh, say, shopping at a gun show) anything valuable (let's say firearms - which the venue hosting the gun show doesn't allow) would be locked in the safe.

    The 'ride' is the force provided by the enforcers. The illegality is between the victim and the prosecutor and judge. As you should well know.

    These promoters are notoriously "Anti 2A" They want you to come and purchase weapons there, but not exercise your rights. I refuse to go to these shows because of it. I've seen quite a few nasty posts/threads in regards to this promoter

    I know a guy that went and he picked up a Taurus TCP 738 for $195.00 new in the box. Also got a T-shirt and a pocket or waist holder. Seems a pretty decent deal from the prices I have looked up on em.

    I sent an email to B&R about having their shows at a place that doesn't support gun owners' rights and maybe finding a new venue. Still waiting for a reply. I'm not holding my breath.
