NC Agricultural Commissioner Steve Troxler (a Republican, FYI) insists that the no-guns policy remains the same this year as in the past, while another group claims changes to state law regarding concealed handguns made by the General Assembly last year gives them the right to do otherwise and are threatening. What do you think?

I think people are nuts to think they need a gun at the State Fair.

shows you where some of the priorities are of the folks who live here. some of the highest poverty and obesity rates, while we have some of the worse healthcare and school systems in the country...but god forbid if they can't bring a handgun to a county fair...hell, if they would clean up these social issues then we would not need guns at the fair...but i do carry my 380 in charlotte...

With the malfunctioning rides...and now people want to bring guns....it's easy for me to avoid the fair this year.

I'm not opposed to CC at the fair. But I wouldn't do it. That last time I was at the fair it was so crowded that I couldn't move with people all compressed together. I wouldn't feel good about having having my handgun tucked in in that situation.

IMO, if you are silly enough to walk around with a gun, then it ought to be holstered in plain view for everyone to see. That why they know you mean business. Everyone is safer that way.

Maybe, but with concealed carry the bad guy has to assume everyone means business.

I agree. If you must carry a gun, it might as well be out in the open. That way EVERYONE knows who to avoid.

Heck, even in the Wild West, they'd confiscate guns if there was a big event in "town."

How is this fair thing any different?

Lots of people, lots of drinking, lots of guns, what could possibly go wrong?

I don't THINK (keyword) people feel the NEED to have their gun at the State Fair. They just see a "perceived" threat to their guns. So they attack it.

I am a gun owner, and support gun rights. But the situation with carrying guns changes completely for me when you pack 80-120k in that small of an area. The chance for unintended crossfire is substantially higher.

I just see it as a no win situation.
