Default Are all the boat shows anti-gun?

I attended the boat show in Columbia SC yesterday. When I bought my ticket and took about 10 steps inside the gate there was a huge no firearms allowed sign. There was a deputy sheriff standing close to it so I ask her if that ment concealed weapon permit holders and she said yes. I had to take my weapon back to the car.

Are all the boat shows like that or just the one in Columbia SC? I normally go every year but I donít think I will next year. I canít support anyone who supports that stance. Who are behind the boat shows and why are they anti-CWP?

I donít think itís the organizers of the boat show as much as the venue hosting it.

Also kinda a strange first post.

Thank the Liberal Courts, Venues can be Sued for next to nothing for just about anything. Liability Insurance Premiums for even a 3 Day Show are mind boggling.

With various shootings that have occurred around the country, this is the new norm for enhanced security. Some places post the signs and leave it up to the attendees to comply while others use walk-through magnetometers or hand wands. I understand the debate about having law-abiding citizens during firearms to defeat the threat from a criminal/terrorist and I’m not referring to whether it’s a good idea or bad idea, just why it’s being done.

yes, show venues can be sued (and lose) if some hillbilly shoots up the place because the beer line was to long. Booze and guns donít mix well. You know that right?

If you carry in SC it is illegal to drink beer.

That's why I wanted to be a Florida Marine Patrol officer years ago. What other job does your employer give you a boat and a gun?

Problem is that the people putting on the boat show dont own the land, so they are not the property owners. Once again thank the liberal courts.

Hey now!!!!!! I thought hillbilly was a West Virginia term. And no I don't see anything wrong with guns in boat shows, or dating your cousins as long as you don't marry them. Now that would would be just plain wierd.

The consensus on this thread seem to indicate that itís not the property owners but the lawyers and insurance companies.

Thatís OK with me. Iím a conservative redneck and not going back next year because thatís my right too.

It could easily be the property owner, or the venue, or both.
Itís simple, property owner states to leases , you rent from us there are no firearms.
I suspect you will find a lot of venues where a lot of people gather are no fire arm events. Sporting events, concerts, state fairs, etc.

Can not remember the last time I heard of a shooting at a boat show. Ironic that those who would do it do not care what the sign says!

Could you imagine the clientele if the business didn't have that right?
