Carrying a weapon on Farm Show grounds isn't prohibited, even though it is state property.
In PA, every show (that I've been to in the last few years anyway) has a big sign out front that says "ALL firearms must be unloaded and zip-tied," or words to that effect. (gun shows)

if you have done this "multiple" times, you need to reconsider the places you go, unless of course you're dreaming/wishing or possibly a Police Officer?

The Fort Lauderdale show did not permit firearms.

There was also a large and very obvious security and LE presence in the show with multiple LE departments patrolling including officers wearing vests and carrying AR's.

In North Carolina it does. In NC, someone with a concealed carry permit is not allowed to carry their weapon onto "[a]ny premises where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice, or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises." I suspect the law of a lot of states is similar.

That's just one of the many places that NC law prohibits the possession of a concealed weapon, even with a permit.

In North Carolina, if caught with a concealed weapon in a properly posted premises, you're subject to arrest, and, if you're convicted, you'll likely be required to forfeit your CCW permit.

As a business owner, I appreciate this law. It allows me to determine who's the best armed person in the building (preferably me).

covered from what? All those CWP people that we don’t hear about causing havoc on the news each night? Not that there is any choice in the case of the SC state fairgrounds for the GM, but I can guarantee they the idiots that live 2 blocks or less away are much more of an issue than the visitors to anything held there, with the exception of the state fair itself.

If I ran a venue of any sort, it would be an open invitation for legal, sober carriers.

Is the boat show in a bad part of town? Why is it such a big deal that you can't leave the pistol in the truck while you walk in the boat show? Or is it just the principle?

Whenever this comes up I do wonder how many guys there are that conceal carry that have some wild fantasy about being some kind of hero and falsely interpret a situation, or just make a bad judgement.

there isn’t a good part of downtown columbia. Butnin this case, it’s a state/facility requirement, and has nothing to do with the show itself.

Ha

So you think

There was a paper/study a while ago that basically said most people ignore the signs

Unless you have metal detectors and screening to enter, you cannot determine who is carrying in your business

Im happy when I people are armed around me I just havent gotten to the point where I think I need to carry but it sure ain't a bad idea .

Just so you realize it,there are criminals that hunt the parking lots of these arenas and so forth that ban firearms.They wait and watch the lots for some law abiding citizen to put their firearm in the vehicle and break in and take them.Concealed is concealed and if no one is scanning,it's probably better to just skirt the issue.The most the private owners can do is ask you to leave.

Just because someone holds a CCW permit doesn't make them intelligent, responsible, mature or safe.

some people who take the course think it makes them all 4.

So, basically what you're saying is that most concealed carry permit holders don't fall within the category of "law abiding citizens?"

just because someone has an opinion on CWP holders doesn’t make them or their position correct. Folks against CWP don’t have statistics in their favor.
