Guns not permitted at National Shooting Sports Foundation convention
Whenever firearms of any sort are involved in a mass murder, the pro gun lobby is very quick to point out that we would all be safer if there were MOAR GUNZ! never fewer guns. Many of them have recently commented that school teachers ought to carry firearms around their classrooms in order to make elementary schools safer. jeesh.
So I find it ironic that at the annual gun industry convention and trade show in Las Vegas The SHOT Show hosted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (based in Newtown Connecticut) that NO weapons are permitted inside the convention hall.
Are personal firearms or ammunition allowed?
NO personal firearms or ammunition allowed. Only firearms on display by exhibitors whose firing pins have been removed (and have been inspected by SHOT Show Safety Advisors) will be permitted on the show floor.
That means all those gun aficionados are going to be trapped helpless to defend themselves if one of the exhibitors or another person at the SHOT Show wigs out and goes on a rampage. What hypocrisy. The National Shooting Sports Foundation advocates eliminating state restrictions on carrying concealed weapons inside bars, schools, restaurants and churches because MOAR GUNZ! make you safer, but when they host their yearly party they make sure all the Yosemite Sams are unarmed.
